Re: ♫ Star Wars, nothing but...Star Wars! ♫

Making movies with Sith and Jedi and the Empire and bounty hunters and all that is awesome. No one is saying they want a SW movie that doesn't have those things in it.

Re: ♫ Star Wars, nothing but...Star Wars! ♫

They...aren't creating new characters? What. They're creating new characters that are all tied into the Luke-Skywalker plot. They're afraid to start a brand new storyline with all new characters/relationships that doesn't tie into Luke. I know Rogue One had Vader and Leia, but none of the main cast...

What's the logistical difference between four 8-team divisions (plus a bunch of wildcards) vs. eight 4-team divisions (a la the NFL) with fewer wildcards?

The relative pearl-clutching people have descended to over the idea of one SW movie a year makes me want to build a time machine AND a cloning machine so I can amass an army of 7-year old me's to annoy everyone to death.

I have a really bad habit of turning on these games after all the goals have already been scored, only to watch an hour of scoreless soccer

Re: Time and Turning 50

I've had people I went to high school or college pass away from cancer, alcoholism, etc. I had my 25 year HS reunion last year and realized all 69 (nice) of our class is still alive. I...
