Riker, taking any opportunity to air out his hard-working “number one”.
The human brain has this amazing ability to filter out the bizarre. Bigfoot could walk by your window right now and you probably wouldn’t notice because your brain just doesn’t have time for that s–t.
Here’s another example — I’ve watched every episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation (several times) and I never noticed that Riker doesn’t know how to use a chair. When the guy sits down he pulls the chair back and dramatically slings his leg over the back of it like he’s mounting a freakin’ horse. He apparently does this all the time, regardless of the situation. It’s nuts.
Don’t believe me? You will after you watch the mesmerizing “Riker sits down” supercut after the jump…
Yup, your mind has officially been blown. By a man sitting. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go ice my groin after attempting the Riker sit on my office chair.
