    p.s. I think Greivous is dumb, but everyone else thinks he's cool

    Yeah I don't know if I would go that far but I diffently have reservations about this guy.

    I have another guess.. is it a frying pan?

    or maybe an upside down salt/pepper shaker

    No on all acounts.

    But it is smaller than a breadbasket/box.

    Another hint: It's used for cleaning.

    Awesome! My question is one I didn't know until today but some of you will probably be able to get it right away.

    What language did Leia speak to Jabba while she was disguised as a bounty hunter?

    Jabba Desilijic Tiure

    I was actually looking at that today thinking it would make a good trivia question ;)

    Okay, I had to think of a really good one to put here...

    Soaring at amazing speeds on reconnaissance and patrol duties, the Imperial speeder bike is a slim, sexy, single-person repulsorlift conveyance. Erin really, really, really wants to chop a motorcycle into a speeder bike look a like. Really bad.
    What was the name of the Ewok who stole an Imperial speeder bike as a distraction for the Rebel strike team?

    Yub, yub!

    The B-Wing is the only Rebel fighter that does not resemble it's name sake. Were did the name "B-Wing" come from? (Not in-universe)

    I know that it was created in response to the increasing use of Nebulon-B frigates by the Imperials.

    Does that count as the answer though ?

    Is looks more like a "t" than a "b". Was it a typo in the script?

    I'm not looking for the story explaination, and no, it wasn't a typo

    Does it mean "Bi" something, since the cockpit can rotate and change position?

    Well excuse me....."I wasn't looking for the story explanation"------------j/k

    How about: B-Wing is short for Blade-Wing. Named so because of its dagger-like appearance.

    "ILM model-maker Bill George was most responsible for the B-wing fighter models. As he explains, when he received the early sketches of the two new Alliance starfighters for Return of the Jedi, one ship was called "A craft", while the other was called "B craft." He surmises that the "A" and "B" were just the way the production crew differentiated the ships. Perhaps it was an accident that the A-wing does have a passing resemblance to an A. The B-wing moniker stuck well, since some in the modeling crew took to calling the odd-shaped craft the "Bill-wing", in reference to Bill George"

    Yeah, I'll go with that ^
