Revenge of the Sith

I found out today that the name of the new Star Wars movie that's coming out next year will be "Revenge of the Sith"...just like I predicted years ago!  I always thought that that name would be a nice parallel to the OTHER third movie in the OTHER Star Wars trilogy, "Return of the Jedi."  Not long ago, there was a rumor that "Revenge of the Sith" would be the name of the new movie, but I had already thought of the name years ago.  And to prove it, check out my second post on the following thread at, which was posted two years ago:  (My user name is penzargrat.)  I'm not sure when I thought of the title, but it was even before that thread.

When I was kid, I remember writing down on a sheet of paper the names of all six Star Wars movies...of course, I had to leave the names of one through three blank.  But now, twenty or so years later, if I still had that sheet of paper, I could finally fill in all six blanks!

Splitsville for the Lake Show

Shaq's probably going to Miami? I don't even care if Kobe goes or stays, now, the Lake Show is FINISHED. And Phil Jackson isn't going to take that job that the Lakers offered him, either. Turns out Buss offered him a position as a vice president. I'm glad that Jackson isn't going to have ANYTHING to do with the Lakers any more.

The REAL Lord of the Rings

Cassini entered orbit around Saturn last night and has been sending back cool pictures of the planet's rings! And when they colorize the pictures they'll be even cooler!

Sea-Monkey Business

I just birthed me some Sea-Monkeys! I've had Sea-Monkeys a lot of different times before, but this is the first time I've had any in a while. I got these Saturday while I was at Ripley's Believe It or Not. I would have gotten them a long time ago, but I was waiting until I found the "Plasma II" packet included with them, cause it's supposed to help them grow bigger, or have more of the eggs hatch, or something. But this set had "Plasma III," so I said, "Even better!" So anyway, I just dumped the "Instant Live Eggs" pack in the tank, and voila: itty-bitty baby Sea-Monkeys squiggling around!

Included in the box is a little catalog that shows two cool Sea-Monkey tanks that are available: "Space Shuttle Expedition," shaped like the Discovery, and "On Mars," which has a Martiany landscape in it. I wish I had known about those before I bought my tank, cause I would've gotten one of those two instead. But I got the "Ghostly Galleon," which has a sunken ship in it. Oh well, it still looks pretty cool.
