    Hello,
    I am conducting a cultural (mini) ethnography for my summer semester college cultural anthropology class. I was hoping some people in this community might take the time to fill out my survey as part of my field work doing data collection. Also if you know of any other Star Wars communities that I might want to check out I would appreciate the lead.

    1)Age?
    2)Were you born with a uterus? Prostate? (Is that more PC then gender? I do not know)
    3)Country of Origin?
    4)Can you describe for me a stereo typical Star Wars fan?
    5)What is your opinion of the term ?Fan Boy? insult? Badge of honor?
    6)When did you first become a Star Wars fan, what aspect of the Star Wars genre drew you into the fandom?
    7)What is your opinion on George Lucas?
    8)Do you participate actively in any Star Wars fandoms/communities?
    9)If so, for how long?
    10)Do you participate in any other fantasy/sci fi type communities?
    11)Do you regularly use quotes from the movies in every day conversation? (IE ?Its a trap!? Or
    12)Have you ever dressed up as a jedi or sith or any other Star Wars characters? (Halloween etc)
    13)Do you enjoy Clone Wars the animated series?
    14)Did you enjoy Episodes 1-3?
    15)If not, what were you expecting of them?
    16)How many Star Wars novels have you read if any?
    17)If you play computer games, did you try Star Wars Galaxies?
    18)What do you think of the new Star Wars MMO coming out? (Star Wars The Old Republic)
    19)Will you or have you passed down your Star Wars enthusiasm to your children or younger family members?
    20)Could Star Wars be real?
    21)In Anthropology culture was described as shared learned knowledge, do you believe star wars fans have their own culture?

    Welcome to the Boards, absentsanity! If your sanity is totally absent, might I suggest checking out the Cloud City Cantina, the Haven of Lunatics and social thread for the Star Wars Community? :p ;)

    You know, what's interesting re. question 20 is that quantum mechanics may just mean, Yes, and not just one universe in which Star Wars is a reality, but an infinite number of universes.
