    4 years for a U.S. presidential term.
    Older candidates wonder if they'll ever have another chance.

    4 years between the Olympics.
    Older athletes wonder if they'll ever have another chance.

    4 dots in the Star Wars ellipsis....
    Except for Episode VI, WTH??


    I wish I could have thought of a 4th thing.

    Aw, man! I even knew that one, too! Some Japanese buildings don't have a fourth floor either (like the U.S. and the number 13).

    I seriously thought I was the only person who knew/noticed this. If you check my posts going back to who knows when, any of them with ellipses have four dots. :p

    I noticed it (or maybe just hadn't thought about it before) when I was making "opening crawl" style invitations for my son's SW birthday party. :)
