I forgot, that's too "nerdy" or "elitist" to think about
Ok, the Parking Brake - how as a joke is that any dumber or more unfunny than Sulu AND Chekov getting lost in a forest in Star Trek V?

It's exactly the same kind of joke and as such will fail or pass depending on personal sense of humour.

And regarding the External Inertial dampner - if you care to read the thread on the subject some very interesting theories were put forward about what function it may have,
'If the Apocalypse starts, beep me!' - Buffy Summers
'The sky's the limit.....' Jean-Luc Picard, 'All Good Things'
