By my estimate, Star Wars is nearly as popular now as it was when it came out, I'm sure many of your students could get that.  It's less of a generational question and more of a Star Wars thing IMO.

I once read an account of people searching for someone who hadn't heard of Star Wars. They almost found one in the remote mountains of Afghanistan, but further questioning showed he'd seen a picture of an X-wing.

If so it's because we doomed them. Not because of bad movies. 


"Here's my favorite little fact. If anyone is ever described to you as a nutritionist, just be slightly wary, right? What they're saying may be perfectly true, but "nutritionist" isn't a protected term. Anyone can call themselves a nutritionist. "Dietician" is the legally protected term. "Dietician" is like "dentist", and "nutritionist" is like "tooth-i-ologist." - Dara O'Briain

:think: It would be another clear sign of the degeneration of our weakening moral standing and fading creative energies.




Yeah, let's do it.
