In England you have to learn on stick shift pretty much.

Simpsons or Futurama?

Automatic.

In my life I have only driven stick shift and I have declared it my mortal enemy.

I haven't seen it, is it on par with anything/everything else?

My main issue with Jango is George's direction of Tem Morrison in the part. He LOOKS fantastic, just like I think a Mandalore should imo, but 90% of his lines are rushed and just fly out of his mouth and onto the floor, without any real depth or meaning behind them. Fett's don't just blurt anything out for the hell of it, they have a reason for it. Jason Wingreen, who did the voice work for Boba Fett in the OT, had the right idea. If Tem had followed that or even WATCHED it then surely the phenomenal "I'm just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe" wouldn't have been so utterly AWFUL.

I took acting classes Tem, they're called pauses.

I'm just a simple man
tryin to make my way in universe

thats GOOD writing, and GREAT character writing at that imo
it is a very RARE thing sometimes in a popcorn movie like the Star Wars saga

Then let's not even get into the fact that Tem had to completely butcher and crap all over Boba's lines in the OT when they over-dubbed them. Our hero no longer has the harsh, scratchy and cunning voice of a 50 year old smoker that is pissed off at Darth Vader, and instead sounds like someone gave Steve Irwin (RIP) a Margarita and stepped on his big toe before they THRUST a script in front of him and said "Here Tem, read this crap as fast as you can."
"Righto then, 'He's no good to be dead!' NEXT."

Yeah, I agree.
He should sound like Clint Eastwood when he's pissed off, not like "Bounty Hunting is bonza!"

Yeah, I agree.

Cookies or cake?

Chapter I

One day Bane went out to buy some peas from the market. Finding there were none, he destroyed the local town. On is way home he realised he was still pea-less. He had a pea-deficiency. So he got into his ship and flew through the vastness of space to the very corners of the galaxy searching for some peas. Upon realisation that some scoundrel had taken all the peas from the galaxy, Bane headed into the outer rim searching for peas.

The first planet he reached was the planet the Transformers were from called Gobotron* but they had no sign of peas. In a fit of rage Bane used their bathroom and didn't flush.

Unfortunately that toilet was the transformer "Sloptimus Grime" who sadly died soon afterwards.

Darth Bane returned to his ship and flew it away from Gobotron laughing out loud at the memories of his toilet-related buffonery.

Suddenly another driver cut him off. Bane leant out of the window to yell words so dark that even the greatest of Sith Lords sometimes find themselves unable to utter them. Bane then remembered there is no oxygen in space as he started to turn blue. Bane noticed the side of the van that cut him off said "REVIn'S PEAS" and "Ow'S ME DRIIIIIVIN MATE? CALL 1800-DARK-SIDE"

*the sound you hear is the sound of Transformers fan's heads exploding.

Chapter II

Bane rung up the number but to his annoyance the phone was answered by an automated response system.
"For Dooku's Donuts Press 1, For Revan's Peas Press 2, For Traya's Toilet Seats and Hot Fudge Brownies Press 3, To hear the options again press 55676 and have your credit or debit card ready" Bane was not in the mood for such shenanigans and destroyed the phone in a fit of rage.

Following the pea truck as closely as possible Bane rubbed his hands together in glea, little realising that it was his hero Darth Revan at the pilot seat of the vehicle in front.

Darth Revan finally stopped his Pea truck on the Nazi planet from that episode of Star trek. Bane landed his ship on some guy dressed in a red security officer's uniform and followed the hooded and masked man who left the pea truck carrying a sack. Behind him he heard to his delight "He's dead Jim."

Darth Revan delivered the peas and headed off to the little boys room to deliver a different kind of package. He was closely followed by Darth Bane who had cleverly disguised himself as a mule farmer by rolling in some feces some filthy pillager had left lying outside the local reichstag.

Several hours later feeling much more comfortable Revan left the bathroom. Bane who had hidden himself in the bathroom while he waited for the mysterious van driver regained conscious a few minutes later in a daze. Quickly escaping the Sith-like smell in the bathroom Bane caught up with the man and beat him to death.

Chapter III

Realising the man he had just beaten to death wasn't the van driver at all but rather another security officer dressed in red, Bane ran back to his ship just to see the man getting into the pea truck. Thinking fast Bane did something that goes against previously-accepted canon** to incapacitate the van and demand vengeance from the driver.

It was at that moment that Bane realised that "REViN" was in fact "Darth Revan" Bane apologised for going against canon and shook Revan's hand.

Revan taught Bane about how the dark side isn't that great and the light side, earning a small living selling peas was the way to live. Bane was confused as to how Revan was still alive at which point Revan revealed that eating peas everyday with every meal granted him everlasting life (there's a moral here kids.)

Revan invited Bane to join him on his quest to sell peas to those who want peas and Bane agreed. Then they both went for a pea as an agreement measure.

And thus began the legend of Bane and Revan: Pea Sellers extraordianaire. More about that later.

**See "Darth Bane: Path of Destruction" for more on this mystical Sith power

Chapter IV

1000 years later.

"Kill him Anakin"
"NOOOOO"
(or something, I'm not a quote machine)
And with that Mace Windu flew out of the window, his hand cut off.

Meanwhile Revan and Bane were in their Pea truck delivering Peas to the Coruscant Mafia. Suddenly there was a loud "flump" sound as something landed on their roof. Bane stopped the van and climbed on top of the van. Lo and behold Mace Windu, still alive, had landed on their truck.

Bane, thinking fast, brought Windu inside the van and threw him in the back. Bane then took hold of the wheel and without telling Revan anything he drove as fast as possible to that planet where Caleb the healer lived. (Yes I know Caleb died in Rule of Two, but the power of peas....Look just shut up, ok?) Caleb used his voodoo powers to grow Mace Windu a new hand and heal him fully. Caleb then said "I AM SO OLLLLLLLLD" and they were off on another adventure

NEXT: LANDO, JANGO FETT and RANCORS!!!!

Why don't they just call it "World of Star Warcraft". Everyone knows that's what they're trying to do.

Furthermore everyone would rather play KOTOR 3 on their own than pay $15 a month to play as some meaningless character being spammed by some 12 year old who likes pop tarts.

That's probably why you still live. Both of them are terrible.

On a push I'd go for Daredevil.

Yes, good old Godsmack...I've been listening to a lot of their stuff again recently...Reminds me of the "good" old days. and by "good" I mean "bad".

I like Faith No More best at the moment, but Alice In Chains, Megadeth, Godsmack, Rush and Faith No More are my main favourites.

Black by Pearl Jam and Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden are good.

Also Alive and Spoonman by those two artists respectively.

I also like anything by Faith No More and Alice In Chains
Particularly Midlife Crisis, Epic, Falling to Pieces and Evidence by the former
and Would? Them Bones, Rooster and Got Me Wrong by the latter.

Megadeth's Rust In Peace is good too.

San Andreas, those were the good old days...

Boba has been one of my faves for years since well before the prequels or any of the young Boba stories came about.
I would even go as far as saying I think the prequels tainted the character as well as Vader and I like the prequels I just never liked the idea of Boba being a clone.

I tend to agree.

Just clearing this up.  Your "ticket to heaven" as defined by the Christian faith is not based on your actions.  It is based on the person having a relationship with Christ.  And when trying to emulate Him, as we are taught, the good actions should come automatically.  Be sure you have studied the faith before posting.

I know full well all the intricacies of the Christian faith.
And yes, arguably to have a good relationship with Christ you need to listen to what he says and does in the Gospels and emulate him, as you say.

I tried a few times to say something relevant here but I just end up ranting about the hypocrisy of some Christians I had once hoped to call friends. And while it raises a valuable point it becomes a long story and can be expressed in many different ways, perhaps two or three of which will express it in a better way than others.

The point of it was some so-called Christians have treated me worse than people from virtually any other religious or atheistic point of view. And that makes me sad really, they should know better.
Just like the priest who walked past the injured man on the other side of the road.*

Unfortunately being a massive hypocrite is one of my pet peeves. People ought to practice what they preach or not preach at all.

*Luke 11:31

I'm Greenwich Mean Time, which is English time, so I don't know how often I'll be able to stay up late enough/get up early enough for this sort of thing.

I can, I've got it for Xbox.

Having studied the scene many times (well 11 and a half) I personally think that Qui-Gon let Darth Maul win in much the same way Obi-Wan let Darth Vader win in A New Hope.
If Qui-Gon had realised he would be able to live on through his spirit (which he duly did) the advantages in letting Maul win are numerous and being wise, it seems plausible that Qui-Gon would have realised them.

-Qui-Gon knew Obi-Wan had the potential to beat Maul and in doing so would prove he is a worthy Jedi, capable of both completing the trials and training Anakin afterwards.
-By dying, Qui-Gon became a martyr in that he died for the cause of Anakin. In death he convinced the Jedi Council to allow Anakin to be trained, which was Qui-Gon's greatest wish at time of death.
-He allowed Darth Maul into a false sense of security by dying so "easily" which meant he became more arrogant and therefore failed to noticed Obi-Wan reaching for Qui-Gon's lightsaber to kill Maul. Qui-Gon realised Maul would be easier to defeat if his views were clouded by arrogance.
-Obi-Wan learnt to clear his mind of emotions such as anger and rage after his master had died. This was a lesson Qui-Gon wanted Obi-Wan to learn, so he put Obi-Wan in a situation where it was essentially "Forget all the rage that you feel due to Qui-Gon dying, or you will die yourself"

Also, Qui-Gon does seem to pause before he is kicked and then killed.

And now Humorbot is much more embarassed by these.
That said, this seems to have become so buried under stuff I had trouble finding this thread.

I think since youtube got bought by google video, google video has pretty much died. These films are all on youtube though.

Pre-suit Vader was pretty weak. If he had never been put into a suit, yeah by the time it was A New Hope he'd be able to give Bane a run for his money. Unfortunately he was put into the suit which made him considerably weaker. As a result I'm certain Bane would destroy him and then destroy him again, then go back in time and kill him twice. Without taking a breath.

It died for me when I realised they'd do anything to squeeze another buck from the already penniless fan.
I might start reading the New Jedi Order series again though. Seems like a good idea for some yuks.

Last thing I read that was Star Wars was the second Bane book. Pretty good, not nearly as good as the first.

Now after the facetious joke that I couldn't help but make, here's mine:

1, Boba Fett
2, Darth Bane
3, Darth Vader
4, Darth Maul
5, Exar Kun
6, Ulic Qel-Droma (Like Anakin or Luke, only without the crap acting or the whininess)
7, Grand Admiral Thrawn
8, Han Solo
9, Kyle Katarn
10, Kir Kanos

Not definitive so don't be surprised if I change it.

Darth Maul can go. I don't like him at all anymore.

1, Darth Bane
2, Boba Fett
3, Darth Vader
4, Exar Kun
5, Ulic Qel-Droma
6, Quinlan Vos
7, Han Solo
8, Kir Kanos
9, Atton... was his last name Rand? I forget his last name.
10, Kyle Katarn (All those terrible Chuck Norris jokes ruined him, the whole "Under Kyle Katarn's beard is ANOTHER LIGHTSABER" I mean for good ness sake have some dignity...)

So yes, I'm surprised one of my old threads is still going, I guess my legacy lives on...to an extent.
Thank you everyone.

Lot of characters are pretty bad.
C-3PO is pretty high on my hate list.
Jar-Jar > C-3PO
There's an absolutely awesome Jar-Jar story in Star wars Tales Volume 5.
C-3PO always stinks.
