    Again , he didn´t wait for Greedo to shoot, he failed to stall him long enough. Not the same. About the Indy example, well, I always agree with pragmatic fighting. If someone goes for you, anything that works is valid.

    No they were originally meant to shoot at the same time, that was always Lucas's intention, they just didn't have time to get the special effects right. You didn't know that?

    I think there are a couple different Kessel Runs. Also Jabba apparently had several henchmen that went around impersonating him before we knew what he looked like. Multiple accounts of what happened to Vader after the Death Star blew up. Not really an OT reference but if you do Hoth you could do all the Yavin evacuations.

    Edit: Whoops, this was supposed to be edited into my last post. My bad.

    Almost at the end of that article I suddenly had a revelation: When it used the plural "we" it didn't mean the site, it meant Jello.

    Yeah, I assume that happens with a lot of people. [face_waiting]

    I wonder if Grand Admirals are able to use the royal "we" in official correspondence.

    Oh, hey, we passed 100,000 total views today. Meaningless, ultimately, but hey, it's a big round number.

    Heh heh. Yeah, it's the pluralis majestatis rather than the editorial we. As Coop said, it's probably common confusion but context and repetition should make it clear enough.

    There was a time when I used the royal we on the JC as well, but a gimmick doesn't work if it's used that frequently.

    *Thunderous applause*

    Do you have data of where those 100000 visitors have been from? I have a friend who wants to know if I show up on it.

    Stupid big populated cities, they are also the ones who always get destroyed in movies.

    I did not expect us to have a substantial Irish audience.

    Next time you go to a con I'm making you a shirt that says "Eleven-ThirtyEight: we're huge in Munster".

    Top ten countries:

    United States
    United Kingdom
    Canada
    Germany
    New Zealand
    Australia
    Netherlands
    France
    Brazil
    Poland

    Is that you there at the bottom, Lug? I forget which of the unimportant counties you're from.

    I'm going to sauna your butt!
    Nope, think even more unimportant.

    If I found an app that would refresh the page all the time... Like those birds who bow every couple of seconds as seen in Simpsons...

    You realize there's not, like, a prize, right? :p

    Anyway, I'd rather you just harass all your RL friends into reading the site as well.

    But that would be hard, and not even mad scientist hard. Unless you make an article series titled "What Star Wars can learn from Frozen".

    Get on with it Jello.

    I can't keep track of all the articles...

    Krhm, what I meant was "I said, a series! :mad:".

    And chocolate if that's possible.
