The staff member also took out an AVO against Chewie.

Oh sh*t, is this the Aussie cousin to the UK's ASBO?

In other news, there's a ski resort in Australia.

Even the cosplay is more dangerous in Australia.

They use the word "resort" like "last resort", because for skiing you can't get much worse. Way better off flying over to Kiwi country and skiing there for the same price.

Was the Empire *that* bad, honestly? Yes, yes, a rogue general(he went craycray, killed a bunch of kids early on too, that's what i heard) blew up a planet and that was terrible, but let's face it, there's a bad apple in every barrel, these things happen in war, and hey you know what? When a bunch of terrorists addicted to a crazy fundamentalist religion are bombing your shiat and murdering your soldiers on the reg, it starts to get a little more grey. Was Alderaan worse that Hiroshima, relatively speaking? But we still love the good ol' USA!

Anyway, that's a negative. But what about the positive: full employment, booming industries(esp space hotel construction), a real sense of shared values, peace, order, well regulated free trade, an end to intersystem and interspecies warfare, progress in science and arts--did I mention the economy(wow!!)? I think we need to take a long look at ourselves and just reconsider all this hatred and negativity towards a system that's actually worked really well for an awful lot of people, you know? Hey thanks Empire! You're not such a bad hegemonic order after all.

I'm so far removed from this that it just makes me giggle. This whole thing is absurd.

I'm sure it's bad for the guy who got his teeth bashed in, but come on. A wookie mauls you at a ski resort in Australia? That's all kinds of nonsensical shiat right there.

Hey!  I learned something new today.

The Emperor does not share your optimistic appraisal of the situation.

There needs to be a waiting period to buy an assault snowboard. Better yet, ban them entirely.

Chewie has really taken the loss of his friend hard.

It's not wise to upset a Wookie.

I was just surprised to learn that Australia has snow...

There's a few, believe it or not. Friends with a World Cup coach from NZ who coached in AUS.

The skiing in New Zealand can be fantastic,  which you probably didn't know either...

I could almost accept the possibility of Bigfoot or the Yeti if I did not know there are now giant hairy humanoids in Australia, North America, South America, Europe and Asia, every Continent except Antarctica, where fur would be a useful adapation and Africa, where all of the genuine great apes except the Orang Outang are found.

The Skunk Ape?
Saskquatch?
Yeti?
Youpie? No wait, I think that one is a baseball mascot.
That would have been a fine list: Ape Man or Baseball Mascot?

Czerka I mean. Autocorrect after the fact is shenanigans

Well I wouldn't put it past Australia to have real Wookies that could rip your arms off, especially if the loose in Dejarik

The American translation of "AVO" is "restraining order", I believe; if memory serves the Aussie counterpart to an ASBO is called an "NRL contract".
