Does anyone remember seeing the link to a website that had space ship size comparisons from tons of films and TV shows? You could over lap them to each other it was pretty cool. I just can't remeber what the address was.... anyone got a clue?
2004-01-17 08:50:27 PM  
Were you thinking of this?
2004-01-17 10:36:08 PM  
Anyone want to summarize the gist of the article for me? I like SW and all, but not enough to read all that shiat.

"On a sadder note, Pizza the Hut, famed half-man, half-pizza was found dead earlier today in the back of his stretched limo. Evidently the notorious gangster became locked in his car and ATE himself to DEATH."

The Endor Holocaust site is pretty good.

Just think of all the time they could have spent drinking, killing kittens and cruising Fark.
2004-01-18 12:14:11 AM  
Man, dude, it's Star Trek night on Fark. Even the Star Wars links have Trek in 'em.

Where did these guys find the time to do all this? I mean, between spending time with their friends and girlfriends . . . oh . . . right . . . nevermind.

1) I am smarter than you.

2) My opinions are inherently better than yours.

3) I am right.

4) Whoever created this website should kill himself.

Wow. Just, wow.

Hey, whatever tinkles your winkie.
2004-01-18 01:35:21 AM  
Look at this one, you look like some kind of super-nerd, built in a labrotory with parts from lesser nerds

ala Triumph the insult comic dog
2004-01-18 01:40:56 AM  
i look, i read, after about 5 minutes, i dont care anymore.
2004-01-18 01:42:12 AM  
Ouch. My brain hurts from even skimming that one. Hard to believe that the ubernerds out there spend as much time discussing the finer details of FANTASY as much as that... When i was growing up, Star Trek was for real bonafide nerds. People that watched Star Wars, however, didn't have the same stigma. Chalk this childhood idea up as being wrong!

One redeeming value- Our good friend Akbar makes a cameo in one of his pics!
2004-01-18 01:42:42 AM  
Holy shiat.

I thought **I** was a farking dork.

These folks probably haven't even seen daylight in at least a year.

It always strikes me as strange that people assume we don't have lifes. Of course we do. We're just not as ostentatious about our lovers and our social lives. We aren't constantly advertising our status that way. It's just your way of reassuring yourselves that learning all the social skills and things like that isn't making you a little bit uncompetitive in relation to your more focused geek and nerd classmates and co-workers.

I'd say lay off it. Each kind of person has the skills they need to compete. The question is whether you're stupid enough to let them go to waste.
2004-01-18 01:43:12 AM  
Star Wars is badass. Star Trek, however, sucks so much cock it's just disgusting. What a horrible franchise. Absolutely terrible. So gay. God I so hate Star Trek.
2004-01-18 01:44:29 AM  
Ya know, some people have WAY too much time on their hands. Not like any of us here, though.....
2004-01-18 01:46:20 AM  
An unhealthy obsession, this is.
2004-01-18 01:52:43 AM  
There are things worse than farking around on Fark.
2004-01-18 01:55:28 AM'm speachless.

I thought Star Trek geeks took the cake but I have been proven wrong.

Here's to you Mr. Star Wars pixel counter (singer: Mr. Star Wars pixel counter)

Your dislike for the Sith is equally comparable to your dislike for girls (singer: Girls run away now!).

Armed with a remote control and keen eyes, only you can make the argument that the Death Star is so small compared to Endor and Bobba Fett had the lamest death ever (singer: Lamest ever!)

You have further proved you need to get a job and move out of your parent's basement (singer: Go get laid now!)

So here is to you Mr. Star Wars pixel counter (singer: Mr. Star Wars pixelllllll counterrrrrrrr!)
2004-01-18 01:56:23 AM  
Just plain sad. IT'S JUST A MOVIE!!
2004-01-18 01:58:38 AM  
From the site:

"Some pro-Wars debaters attempt to claim that the shots from Luke's X-Wing must have vaporized hull material, since armor is not flammable. Therefore, they say, the explosion and resulting expanding gases must mean that about a cubic meter's worth of hull material was vaporized. "

That passage makes these guys...

This reminds me of some of the more elaborate discussions of early Christian theology. Is this anymore bizzare than the conflict about which part of the Holy Trinity is more important of the early Byzantine empire?

I just realized that that last sentence can be construed as a SW reference in some circles. It may be too late for me...

The Chewbacca Defense - by Johnny Cochrane

Ladies and Gentlemen of this supposed jury, this is Chewbacca. Chewbacca is a wookie, from the planet Kishik. But Chewbacca lives on the planet Endor. That does not make sense.

Why would a wookie, an 8 foot tall wookie, want to live on Endor, with a bunch of two foot tall Ewoks. That does not make sense.

But more importantly, you must ask yourself: what does this have to do with this case? Nothing. Ladies and Gentlemen of this supposed jury, it has nothing to do with this case. Look at me, I'm a lawyer, defending a major record company, and I'm talking about Chewbacca. I am not making any sense. None of this makes any sense.

So, when you're in that jury room debating and conjugating the Emancipation Proclamation, you must ask yourself this question: Does it make sense?

No. It does not make sense. If Chewbacca lives on Endor you must acquit. The defense rests.

This guy has it all wrong. What about the fractioning field seen in the background of Star Wars V? DUH

If you feel bad trolling Fark early on a Sunday morning, this website reminds us that there are bigger losers than you.
2004-01-18 02:15:05 AM  
NeoLeftist... to make a few corrections:
Chewbacca cames from the planet Kashyyyk, not Kishik.

Also, to correct South Park creators... Chewbacca does not live on Endor. Ever.

I've memorized nearly every song and poem in LoTR, and know The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales insanely well.
I'm a master of Star Trek trivia, and have seen every episode of every show at least twice (except that shiat Enterprise).
I've seen each Star Wars movie at least 10 times (even The Phantom Menace), and have thouroughly farked up some good situations by stating my obsessions.
I spend all day in a darkened room talking to myself while reading Slashdot and Fark, surfing simultaneously on 2 different self-built computers.
The closest I've ever gotten to getting laid was explaining how my binary-display watch works to an ugly girl.

And I think these guys are huge farking dorks.
2004-01-18 02:21:17 AM  
It was a movie, it was entertaining, you guys actually sit around analyzing this stuff? Ever heard of Women? Ever heard of Get a life?
2004-01-18 02:22:19 AM  
What, no explanation of why there is sound in space in these flicks?

"This document does not advocate or condone the extinction or betrayal of ewoks, it merely reports upon a physical situation and the acts involved."

Well I for one advocate and/or condone the extinction and/or betrayal of ewoks. 'nuff said.
2004-01-18 02:29:30 AM  
Well, thats it! I can not watch Star Wars ever again...

I sure hope they do not do this to the LOTR movies.
2004-01-18 02:31:54 AM  
I was playing StarWars Galaxies when I read that article. I'm ashamed to like Starwars now :(
2004-01-18 02:34:36 AM  
why not ruin the new ones.

2004-01-18 02:40:22 AM  
Xieflow, No you aren't, I think you're lying. Go to your room!

Now show us what would win in a battle: Millennium Falcon vs. Enterprise?
2004-01-18 02:50:57 AM  
On a related note - I currently live in the house where George Lucas wrote most of the original trilogy... and the view from my window bears an uncanny resemblance to Endor.
2004-01-18 02:53:32 AM  
CrazyMFW: Ah, don't you mean Endor's forest moon?
2004-01-18 02:56:23 AM  
OK, I'm not ashamed to like StarWars.

I just am afraid of people who pick apart movies like that.

I *like* hearing lasers make noise in space! Who cares if it is "realistic" or not. If I wanted realistic would I be at a movie??

you can't do 3d math based on 2d images like that.

we don't know the distance between the objects compared along the z axis.

its like trying to make friends with salad
2004-01-18 03:06:14 AM  
Now show us what would win in a battle: Millennium Falcon vs. Enterprise?

Harrison Ford is too busy trying to convince Calista Flockhart to eat a sandwich to win any battle right now.
