    Greetings, slackers old and new. It's been sometime since we've had a thread honoring our love of Star Wars and how our relentless research into all things Star Wars gets us through our work days.

    In honor of this new era of slacking, I present to you, Yoda's Four Nobles Truths of Slack. Any Buddhists out there may feel ripped off by Yoda's words but I assure you, it was Yoda who thought of this path, not that guy Buddah.

    The Four Noble Truths of Slack

    1. The knowledge that WORK has been CREATED is UNFAVORABLE. And whatever is unfavorable is inherently a NUISANCE. And what is an unfavorable nuisance should be IGNORED.

    2. The knowledge that the arising of WORK is based on employers and is perpetuated by the craving and intoxication for PRODUCTION and PRODUCT, becoming and rebecoming, STRESS.

    3. The knowledge that the CEASING of this NUISANCE has arisen, the stopping of all future becomings, is Nirslackna. True Reality realized, free of this WORK.

    4. The knowledge that leads to the cessation of this WORK and to winning the goal: Nirslackna, True Permanent State of Slack or Perfect Wisdom. Nirslackna.

    Yes indeed. Work is but a pebble in the road to true Star Wars enlightenment.

    I'm a basher, but I find myself bashing much less often and without the vim and vigor of recent times. To put it simply, I'm becoming a slack basher, or is bashing slacker. No...slasher. I took the short-cut.

    Can I too find Nirslackna?

    I must achieve this nirslackna, Oh wise Creepio. And you hath shown me the way. All is revealed to me now!!

    The colors. Ohhh man look at all the colors!!
    OOOHHHHMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!
    OOOHHHHMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!
    OOOHHHHMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

    Slowly TarynS is lifted from her chair and is levitating over her desk. With the nirslackna she is able to use her thoughts to type this post and tell all of this wonderful state called Nirslackna

    OOOHHHHMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

    Aunt Beru-

    Yes, in fundamental Slackism, the emphasis in on seeing SLACK, on knowing it, on understanding it. This is not blind faith. The teaching of Slackism is on "come and see" but never on come and believe. Only by one's personal efforts can Nirslackna be realized. The choice is yours alone, Berumeister. Remember, this is not a system of faith and worship but a path to Supreme Enslackerment.
