Climateer Line(s) of the Day: Greece Calls for Activation of Bailout Edition

Here's this morning's headline at the New York Times:
Greece Calls for Activation of Financial Rescue
And here are some of the Twitter comments at MarketTalk:
4:55 So Greece surprises absolutely nobody and calls for "activation of the support mechanism."
What is this, an episode of Star Trek?

4:56 Mr. Scott, you have to activate the support mechanism in three minutes or we're all dead!

4:57 Cap'n, no starship has ever activated a support mechanism in three minutes.

4:57 Jim, you activate that support mechanism now you're liable to blow up the whole ship!

4:58 If we don't activate the support mechanism now, Doctor, the ship will blow up anyhow.
