Could the Gorn fight *really* happen?

or, could Kirk really be that awesome?

Star Trek is among my most favorite things ever. And, so I don’t get mistaken for some pussyfooted TNGer, when I say Star Trek, I mean TOS. Anyway, for you non-initiated, there are a couple of moments from the original series that stand out as being outstandingly ridiculous. Like, the one episode, where the Metrons force  Kirk and a huge-ass reptile to battle each other. Why? BECAUSE IT’S AWESOME, OK? Here, see for yourself, and TREMBLE AT IT’S MAGNIFICENTOSITY!!!!!

Holy crap, right?  I know. So this episode in particular lives in the collective (memory) of Trekkers the world over. The question is… COULD THE CANNON KILL THE GORN? Well, luckily for us, the mythbusters are on the case.  No, really:

Now, If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to nerdgasm for the next hour or so.
