    A useful phrase. Nice to be reminded of it.

  • My favourite use of this phrase was in “Evil Dead 2” where the main character had to recite this phrase in a special place, and forgot the words so instead said “Klaatu Barada cough mumble mumble

    I am old enough to remember being clutched with fear and urgency. If I didn’t remember the words “Klaatu, Barada, Nikto,” the earth would be destroyed by aliens. “The Day the Earth Stood Still.” OMG, now THAT was awesome sci-fi back in the day! And it was in black and white! Thanks for the dance down memory lane. Hope you sell LOTS of tee shirts!
