This weekend marks James Tiberius Kirk’s birthday (or will be, in 214 years and also in a fictional capacity).

If you were using Microsoft Word in the late ‘90s, you probably remember Clippy, the anthropomorphic paperclip who popped up from time to time in order to offer tips on how to better use Microsoft Office.
