According to Wookiepedia: When Kenobie was 13 he was initialy sent to the Jedi Service Corps, specifically the AgriCorps. To be a farmer. This seems, to me at least, like a complete wast of Jedi Potential. Obi-Wan Kenobi later grew to be one of the most powerfull Jedi of all time. So if a Jedi is not selected by a master their fate is to be shunned from the Order to go do manual labor? This just kind of annoys me. I wonder how many potential Jedi, who could have done great things for the galaxy, were never given the chance. I wonder how many infuriated teanagers, whose dreams were destroyed, turned to the dark side for consolation.
