    Certainly. If they are independent contractors, as you say they are, then:

    1) They are liable for any weakness that the Death Star had, which was the core that Luke destroyed.

    2) They were working for the Empire! As we, the audience, see it, the Empire is the enemy. And, in my opinion, if you work for the enemy, then you become part of it.

    Well, the Empire was the intergalactic government. Those Rebel terrorists had no right to destroy it! Those contractors were innocent people who were doing their job when those evil Rebels invaded and killed all the men and women who worked hard to keep the galaxy safe for everyone.

    Here's a question: Why do Rebels kiss their sisters?

    haha, nicce.
    However, indipendeant contractors know risks they are taking when going to a job.

    Example: A roofer takes a job putting tile up on the roof of a known mafiosos house.
    A hit is put on the criminal and his family, and the house is attacked. The roofer is killed.

    i prefer the original, theres just something more scary about being attacked by zombies back then rather than today.

    I didn't like Dawn of the Dead.I thought I was going to be scared cos I don't like horror films and scare easy but it wasn't even scary.Just stupid and hilarious to watch the people turn to zombies.

    I own Resident Evil Apocalypse on DVD. :)

    The OT's duration is 388 minutes. Or 6 hrs and 28 mins.

    The PT's duration is 415 minutes. Or 6 hrs and 55 mins.

    why are there 7 days in a week?

    The common explanation is that the seven-day week was established as imperial calendar in the late Roman empire and furthered by the Christian church for historical reasons. The British Empire used the seven-day week and spread it worldwide. Today the seven-day week is enforced by global business and media schedules, especially television and banking.

    The first pages of the Bible explain how God created the world in six days and rested on the seventh. This seventh day became the Jewish day of rest, the sabbath, Saturday.

    Extra-biblical locations sometimes mentioned as the birthplace of the 7-day week include: Babylon, Persia, and several others. The week was known in Rome before the advent of Christianity.

    There are practical geometrical theories as well. For example, if you wrap a rubber band around 7 soda cans (or any other convenient circular objects). You get a perfect hexagon with the 7th can in the middle. It is the only stable configuration of wrapping more than 3 circular objects. Four, 5, and 6 objects will slip from one configuration to another. Ancients wrapping tent poles, small logs for firewood, or other ciruclar objects might have come upon this number and attach a mystical significance to it.

    One viable theory correlates the seven day week to the seven (astrological) "planets" known to the ancients: Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, and Saturn. The number seven does not seem an obvious choice to match lunar or solar periods, however. A solar year could be more evenly divided into weeks of 5 days, and the moon phases five-day and six-day weeks make a better short term fit (6 times 5 is 30) to the lunar (synodic) month (of about 29.53 days) than the current week (4 times 7 is 28). The seven-day week may have been chosen because its length approximates one moon phase (one quarter = 29.53 / 4 = 7.3825).

    All credit goes to http://webexhibits.org/calendars/week.html :p
