An Enterprising Town

In 1985, Riverside, Iowa, declared itself the future birthplace of Star Trek's Captain Kirk, who is scheduled to be born on March 22 in a couple of centuries. The locals even erected a plaque to show the exact place of his conception.

At local bar Murphy's, a plaque states Kirk was "conceived at this point" - hanging on the wall instead of its original spot under the pool table.

"Regulars got a kick out of seeing Star Trek fans crawl under there to look, but it seemed kind of cruel," said Becky Laroche, who works at People's Bank, the town's only bank. [Link]
