    Important insight:

    In assessing this option, it’s worth bearing in mind that the dead Obi-Wan did not, in fact, become more powerful than Darth Vader could possibly imagine. His new powers seemed limited to appearing as an apparition offering inscrutable advice to Luke Skywalker, whereas the previous, alive version featured the power to slice people’s arms off with a light saber.

    • dmoas Mar 30,2012 10:58 am || Up

      “Obi-Wan was quoted as saying afterward, ‘I really felt there was an opportunity to get Darth Vader to kill himself. But I also figured I wasn’t going to win that fight anyway, so I figured, why not try to get inside his helmet a little? It’s really unfortunate that the camera didn’t catch me cupping his balls afterward while I told Luke to run.'”

    • 5Aces 5Aces Mar 30,2012 11:06 am || Up

      Let me get my full dork on: Vader could not imagine that anyone could appear from the other side. Qui-gon learned how to do this and taught Obi-Wan and Yoda. And actually , if he had known there was a way it may have changed everything-the fear of “losing” those he loved being what drove Skywalker to join with the Emperor. (Did I really just dive into the the plot of the prequel trilogy? I will no go take a boiling shower to wash Ep 1-3 stink off…)

          but he hadnt died to be able to learn it. At the end of ep 3, Yoda tells this to Obi-Wan..he is to learn how to do it from Qui-Gon while he is hiding out.

        Because they are so good that busting ass 100% of the time is pointless. Constant pressure and hope for a missed touch or a misplayed pass is really the only hope, with the occasional burst to try and make a tackle.

    I know we didn’t need to acquire him, but I’m starting to love him:

    Gomes made an eye-popping purchase: a suit of chain-mail samurai armor, including full headpiece, that is 170 years old. “The price is in the eye of the beholder,” said Gomes, who said he spent six figures in yen. “To me, it’s priceless.”

      Six figures in yen?

      That’s less than $10,000. For a 170-year old armor suit, that actually sounds like an incredible bargain.

      While I was over there, I went to a kimono exhibition. The fanciest of the lot– admittedly, it had been made by hand over the course of years– retailed at well over $120,000. For a piece of clothing.

                  Probably even more than that, since besides the Dodgers sale price point, multiple well-financed parties have been outed as having an active current interest in buying into MLB.

                  thank you for your answer.

                  My guess is that if the Forbes report came out next week rather than last week, the A’s would be worth at least $475m, and be the ONLY franchise valued beneath 500m.

                  Even that alone probably wouldn’t do it, though.

                  That McCourt and the Wilpons haven’t done it speaks well of the robust market and the shrewd fiscal stewardship of Bud.

            I actually heard that Buffet somewhat nonchalantly scoffs and tells people to FK off when they ask him for advice — but I assume that’s just people going “DOOD HOW CAN I GET HELLA RICH TOO?!?!?” and not people who have an enormous sum of money coming to them and want to not FK up.

        I would think it would present a unique arbitrage opportunity for those doing the fixing. While it’s clearly unethical and illegal for a pro athlete to throw a match (or even shave points) in order to help a gambler win a large bet, I’m not sure that would apply in an event where one side or the other is going to throw the match regardless.
        Maybe the answer is in that stories last paragraph, where they say most books limit the wagers to small amounts.

          It was – Kirby Cove has an amazing view, especially when a big container ship is going under the bridge.

      So looking at the play-by-play Valentine basically rotated his entire infield around at the start of each inning for the first 7 innings. Way to give the guys a chance to get into a comfort zone at a position.

      I’m thinking Andrew Bailey is going to be actively wishing for this guy’s firing by the middle of May.

        That’s Valentine’s pattern, right? His players ultimately come to loathe him?

      It is.

      I was joking in another thread that the Northern Peninsula of Michigan is the exploitable level-up quirk, like that one funky misprogrammed square in Final Fantasy.
