+ - Original Star Wars Script found in Canadian University Library

Beardo the Bearded writes: It's Episode I, Han shot first, and Luke's last name was Starkiller. An article over at the CBC reveals that a copy of the original Star Wars script from 1976 has just been discovered by a librarian who has spent the last four months digitizing their archives.

From TFA: "Deep in the archives of the University of New Brunswick's library in Saint John, a famous movie script sat forgotten and collecting dust. It tells the tales of a galaxy far, far away — and no one knows how it got there.

Since February, Kristian Brown, a librarian, has been sifting through the library's extensive science fiction collection."

The University is planning to put it on display.

Also, as a diver I have a dedicated dive computer. (A Shearwater Petrel) My daily-wear watch is a Movado. I happen to like the minimalist look and the thin profile.

I haven't seen a diver using a "dive watch" in ... ever. My backup timepiece is a Timex Ironman my dad got me when I was a teenager.

The A-10 "Warthog" is arguably the most heavily armoured plane in the world. From its wikipedia entry:

[The armour is] "made up of titanium plates with thicknesses from 0.5 to 1.5 inches (13 to 38 mm) determined by a study of likely trajectories and deflection angles. The armor makes up almost 6% of the aircraft's empty weight."

As a counter example, a woman once told me that she thought my foul mouth was awesome.

"Awww, fuck off, you asshole."

Blew her clothes right off her body. She was super smart and had the body of a 22-year-old stripper.
