Mr. Spock's Sperm.

Oh, Mr. Spock. You are incredibly dreamy. I have had the biggest school girl crush on you since the tender age of 4. Watching Star Trek with my father on the SciFi channel after Twilight Zone, Doctor Who and Dark Shadows was the abosolute high light of my days. You were so...suave and poised like a cat. Mmm.

Us nerdy folk know that Spock's blood was green, yes? Well, here's a question for you: What color was his sperm?

Reading a good friend's blog entry on all questions of great nerdom, that question reared it's head (Haha...) and it got me thinking. Our blood is red (let's not get into specifics about what color it is inside our bodies before it interacts with oxygen). Spock's is of course, green. Take a look at this color wheel for a moment:

As you can see from this color wheel, green is opposite of red. Red is opposite of green. If you've taken any art classes, you know that these are also called complimentary colors because they are opposites. Well, a human male's sperm is white (well, a transparent white). What's opposite of white?

Bingo! Black.

Mr. Spock's sperm must be a shade of transparent black since that is opposite of white. His fluids are probably opposite of humans (even though he is only half Vulcan).

It's motherfucking logical, damnit.

    Well played.
