Lucas had a pretty successful run. I hope he puts his hands on the bars and his feet on some pegs and rides out his years with great joy.

I know damn well that I'd know how to enjoy my 60s, 70's and 80's if I had a couple of billion $ in the bank.....

I hear the next film will focus on the story of Jar Jar Binks and the struggle of his people.

US$4Billion.

Is that enough to retire on?

I think Disney is smart enough to let Jar Jar die a quiet, unremarkable death. Ewoks, on the other hand...

Motorcycles are not, by nature, forgiving creatures.

It could be if the stock exchange stays closed.

Anyway, I wish Uncle George sold the franchise years ago so I didn't have to have the whole thing ruined by the prequels. If it wasn't for Natalie Portman, they would be almost unwatchable.

Only if you use the current economic strategy. Then again, "schite happens or it doesn't!"

I employed a young girl who was the spitting image of Nat, but blonde; and she rode a Honda. Well I didn't actually employ her, my business partner and g/friend at the time employed her.

I was dizzy all day, every day.
