+ - Star Wars: Episode VII Cast Officially Announced->

Submitted by eldavojohn
eldavojohn (898314) writes "Word was leaking this week of some familiar faces in London hanging out together. Finally today an official cast listing was handed down from on high to us mere mortals (Google Cache and Onion AV recap available). From the short release, "Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film." Let's not bicker and argue about who shot first but instead come to an agreement on expected levels of almost certain disappointment. No, this will not feature the Expanded Universe (EU) — you can now refer to those tales as "Legends" which are not part of Star Wars canon. Instead prepare yourself for what will likely be the mother of all retcon films."

I don't know about the Mexico bit, but pretty much all homeless people I see by the side of the off ramps fit the bill described above. There was this one lady that always hung out in front of a shopping center near my friend's place giving the same story about trying to save up enough for a bus ride across town. We saw her for months, and I joked that she could have walked there by now. Well, my friend actually stopped to talk to her, let her know that we'd been given the same story by her for months, and actually asked her why she didn't just walk there. The lady looked embarrassed. We never saw her there again.

And yet these are exactly the kinds of bills that have been applauded in recent time. Even when anyone agrees that a great portion of a bill like this is beneficial, when they question even the smallest part of it or whether the entire bill was considered by everyone who voted for it, they are labeled a hater.

I don't think I could correctly participate in the experiment because I'd know if anything went wrong that it would all be over soon, and if anything really went wrong they would open it up and rescue me

Now if they told me I was going to fly to Mars and put me in a simulator that made me feel like I was actually lifting off and going into space (and I didn't know it was a simulation) I'd probably fall for it. Sounds like a better experiment to me. Actually, I think that's a J. G. Ballard short story already. Oh well.

The best way to avoid responsibility is to say, "I've got responsibilities."
