1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    There is a scene in star wars IV near the cell block scene where a storm trooper hits his head on the top of the doorway. If they were all clones, they'd all be the same height, right?

    I remember watching this over and over on laserdisc.
    Also, no one ever said they were clones of only one person.

    In the beginning they were only one person-Jango fett but I guess the Empire thought otherwise after he got his head cut off.

    Yeah... if you take at least the best written of the EU into account, the Empire hasn't been using clones for years by the time Episode IV happens.

    I think in the KJAnderson trilogy about the formation of the New Jedi Order the one kid takes the Sun Crusher and destroys a system where the remnants of the Empire had their remaining Stormtrooper training facilities. Then he goes through a mental breakdown thinking about all the different people he killed(...? it's been a while) mainly young kids at the academies there.

    also, why the fuck do the Stormtroopers wear armor in the first place? when weapons like Han Solo's ghey little leg blaster (which looks like the galaxy far far away version of a .22) straight up kills them with a single shot from across a spaceship hangar??!

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaamen.

    And since when does size matter? Think the Noisy Cricket.


    Speaking of dumb stuff in films: humans in the transformers movies ruin transformers movies.
