I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of droks suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

If they take our Star Wars toys, the terrorists win.

These are not the Star Wars toys we're looking for.

Noooooooooooo! Please tell me the bomb squad didn't sully the goods. I was saving the original packaging for my wedding night!

That was supposed to be a ransom to get my cardboard Princess Leia back. Now I'll never see her again!

2005-07-13 03:50:34 PM

2005-07-13 03:50:48 PM  
Ah, Princess Leia. Star Wars' first suicide bomber (almost). I mean, rebel freedom fighter!

2005-07-13 03:54:51 PM  

yes,the main

Ah, OK. The opposed to the other terminal, which was not evactuated as it doesn't exist.

I will say though, it's a great airport. One of the best I've been to. It also had wireless service available before either Chicago or San Jose did.

This is just "gorilla marketing" by Lucas.

Thank goodness for heightened security measures, so there aren't trivial ways for our enemies to strike fear and cause major disruptions to commerce.

anything blowing up in Buffalo would have to be considered an improvement.

Buffalo is a few notches better then Detroit. That's about all it has going.

On the other hand, Buffalo is somewhat better then Rochester, which is where, I'm convinced, they send people to die.

Must have been full of Jar-Jar toys.

Hey the NHL thread is halfway down the page. Besides the Sabres will be battling the Bruins for last place as usual.
2005-07-13 04:02:56 PM  
OK Boys. I know you all are going to Comicon in San Diego. And yes I know you want to dress up like a Jedi and have a bunch of lightsaber to choose from. However:


Leave them at home, go to Toys R Us when you get there and buy the 3.97 ones.

/Damn Star Wars geeks.
