    The visual guide actually has a morbid answer.

    Ponda and Evazan were preforming back-alley surgeries on citizens of Jedha, and had a group of followers named "The Decrainiated", because their brains were removed from their heads. Some of their "work" can be seen in the film.

    There was a short story in the anthology Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina that told their story. I don't remember details, but it was obviously a take off on Frankenstein.

    So, yesterday, my wife, daughter and I were having a pleasant, quiet lunch at an eatery in Ridley, just outside of Philly, when life began horridly imitating the forums. There were 3 angry nerds fraternizing at an adjoining table who spent the entirety of more than an hour arguing about who was angrier at Rogue One, who hated Rogue One more than The Force Awakens and debating everything from how none of the characters exhibited any depth... to Rogue One's ending sucking (lulz)... to filmmaking techniques. My wife said she would bet that I had banned at least one of them from here at some point and that their "discussion" was verging on banality to the point of ruining her meal, to which I could only ask her to empathize with my volunteering to live that out on a consistent basis. I finally intervened when their vocabulary got out of control and I literally told 3 arguing Star Wars nerds that we have a Disallowed Words list. In a restaurant. In public. On earth. In real life.

    Approximately 10 minutes was dedicated to debating which of the new droids, K2 or BB8, were more worthless, stupid, lame, etc. Another chunk of the discussion dedicated itself to which of the new female leads was more lame (... but HAWT). But, the piece de resistance was the absurd amount of time spent on the pisspoor character of Cassian: His name sounds like Calrissian LAWLZ. He had absolutely no character growth. None. At all. This was dissected relentlessly. They literally broke down how he killed the rebel spy at the beginning for no reason and then was a different person by the end of the film. To which my 8 year old daughter... 8... she is 8... vocally blurted out that means he became a nicer person. The majority of their energy expenditure was burned on how all of the characters sucked but it was bad to kill them all. Including "the blind karate guy". I said some things. I'll report those later. I am still digesting how these poor chaps spent their limited time out of parents' cellars doing... this.

    Little did they know that we are quite close with the management and staff of this restaurant. I could legit have had them banned. In real life. META.

    I'm taking notes. I've been trying to figure out how to bring this modding thing into the real world.

    That's why I prefer gushers to bashers (mea culpa). If I have to listen to an irritating conversation, at least it would be positive :)

    It is cool to hate on popular things.

    Back in 1977, when the original Star Wars was released, people wanted to show they were "in". Now they find cool to show that they are "out".

    I feel old.

    Yeah, thinking that if we posture as contrarian that it somehow causes people to believe we are offering some unique, enlightened perspective is just absurd.

    Well in R1 merchandise news, I bought a Jyn Erso bookmark! (My Bart Simpson bookmark is years old and is getting haggard so I demoted it to a graphic novel trade paperback bookmark and my fancy new Jyn bookmark is for books). Kind of wider than a usually like but I can deal. It was either a Jyn or a Rey one and I went with Jyn. More of a tribute really to the fallen. Rey's still alive. RIP Ersos, heroes of the Rebellion.

    Also in a forum related question, why are the topics for the R1 forum still hidden on the page page? Trying to preserve spoilers still?

    You guys may have forgotten but every day I log in I still mentally note "Huh, R1 forum topics are still set to invisible." Every. Single. Day.

    Please for my sanity, make it visible.
