William Shatner is one of our very favorite accounts on Twitter mainly because he just sort of hangs out with normal, everyday people which usually leads to him slapping trolls around.
You know, like the rest of us.
Hes not focused on pushing some social justice movement or complaining about Trump like other celebrities
nope. Usually, hes talking about various projects hes working on while schooling younguns about this or that. For example:

A $315k 30 yr mortgage today at 3.8% is $525k total.
$315,000 in 1985 is equivalent in purchasing power to about $751,664.36 in 2019.
So its cheaper today to buy a median price home🤷🏼♂️
This thread is racist. It has math.
Pretty good. Shatner’s a character.
Math is discriminatory, wayciss and gender normative. How can you decide 1+1 isn’t 3??
VERY funny Shatner to Geo Lucas @ Lifetime Achievement Award
1985 median income: 22,415
2018 median income: 63,179
85k loan, 20% down, 12.0% interest = principle/interest of 699/mo
315k loan, 20% down, 3.8% interest = principle/interest of 1174/mo
P&I in 1985 consumed 37.4% of gross income
P&I in 2018 consumed 22.3% of gross income
yea, it is so much harder today
I never knew that The Captain is such a racist!
DeShawn pimps fo hos. If the price is one Benjamin per trick, how many tricks per day must each ho turn to support DeShawns $800 per day crack habit?
In the service of oversharing, William Shatner was my first childhood crush. Here I am, 50 years later, still crushing on the man.
The fellow citing his 21% mortgage said “mid-80s”. That would be more like very early (Carter) 80s, as in 1979-early 1981. The respondent used 1985 (post-Reagan reelection) and got a bad number off of it. Even with the difference, the Shat comes through again.
He doesn’t take himself so seriously, which is a good thing in this day and age.
I got a VA mortgage in 1985 at 12.5% and was grateful to get it.
Around 69, I saw Shatner in a one-man show at ASU. He did 2 hours of dramatic readings like “Galilep” & “Cyrano” interspersed with anecdotes about Star Trek. He is an excellent actor and it was a great show.
I got a 11% VA loan in ‘82. I converted into a 5% loan later on. I paid the 30 year mortgage off in 15 even though when I took it I was at the maximum allowable loan at the time. I would add a little extra money each month when I could afford it. I bought the house when I was 35 and paid it off when I was 50. It is worth 6 times what I paid for it. I’m retired with no mortgage. Is a reverse mortgage in my future? Probably won’t need it, but my kid’s will benefit.
Always been a Shat fan. Everyone who has worked with him said he was vain and thin-skinned in his younger, prime days. But, as he’s gotten comfortably into his geezerhood now, apparently he’s decided to have some fun with his own stereotype. And man, has it ever paid off for him.
