Alternative Prequel Ideas

I wonder what the order of the Jedi would be like if it resembled dark ages Europe? I imagine that one would start out by being an Apprentice and graduate to be a Jedi. From there, Jedi could go on to be Knights (warriors), Masters (teachers) or Healers, etc.

Maybe the prequels could be about a prophecy of a lost Jedi King?

I still think it makes no narrative sense that Anakin and Owen start the story on Tatooine.
I thought he was a newly married spice trucker who bumps into Obi-Wan during one of his twice Knightly adventures and ends up being drawn away from his family by the lure of the Force.
His wife (who isn’t the queen of Space Venice) is already pregnant and when the Jedi are forced to scatter Owen takes his family to the crappiest place imaginable for protection from Darth Vader. Skywalker would be a common name like Jones or Felkunstoniasnitz.
The prequels are hard work to fix. I applaud people for trying so hard.

I love your face, Bingo!

I once saw a system that puts a subdivision within Gen-Y in 1993 to take into account how warped the kids with no memory of the time before ubiquitous high-speed internet have turned out. I have a sister born in 1992 who’s totally fine, and my good friend’s little brother was born in 1994 and is a fucking weirdo, so I’ve seen it in stark relief and I think there’s something to that.

Yeah, it’s weird. I fall pretty squarely near the middle of the Millennial generation (which makes me filth) but I will always have more in common with someone born in 1982 than someone born in 1996, despite being the same distance in years away from me. Constant internet access changed kids, man.

As someone born in 1973, I now feel ancient.

Older than the Fink!!

You wanna talk about ancient, I was alive for the last moon landing. Take that, Millennials.


Agree with Frink on this one. At its core, PC is about not deliberately offending others. I think it is easily taken too far by its practitioners, perhaps to the point of ridiculousness, but I appreciate the idea behind it.

Do I need a certificate file to burn the bdmv folder in imgburn?

I had that question awhile back, I just added the Certificate Folder from 2.5
as it was empty anyhow, I think I was told it didn’t matter, but I wanted to be sure.
Either way it worked fine for the 2.6 AVCHD.

Edit: Gratzs Towne! You made alot of folks Happy! 😃

So if the folder was empty, I could just add an empty folder as long as it had the proper name?

Official Sluggo review:

I paid for my whole seat, but I only used the edge.

And while I wasn’t on the edge of my seat I can’t stop smiling while watching this film.

I realized I liked it when they killed of that major character and I thought “Yeah. That works” If a prequel quality film had tried it, I would have walked out.

Or so says a pal of mine who is an old timer here. He wants back in, but he can’t seem to get past the password reset. Instead, he gets this:

Which doesn’t worky.

Can he reactivate his old account with a new email? He doesn’t use his old one, he says.
