    – It's illegal to have a gas can(or a propane tank) inside a vehicle. I've seen police camp out at store parking lots and catch people as they leave with them in the car.

    – I agree about Boba Fett. We saw nothing in the original trilogy that would indicate he was anything more than lucky. He didn't even capture anybody, he just called in to the Imperial equivalent of Crime Stoppers when he figured out that the good guys had gone to Bespin. Then he gets killed by a stumbling, blind Han Solo in Jedi.

      I spent a few minutes trying to find any validity to the legality of a gas can or propane tank inside a car and came up empty (no pun intended). I doubt this law is real because too many people have to mow their lawn (or grill) and only own a car, but if you find something to prove me wrong, please let me know. However, there may be restrictions on the amount you can carry inside the vehicle and what container can be used, the closest I could find was this statement, “440 lbs of gasoline in containers of less than 8 gallons (30L)”

      How is one to swap out gas bottles at CVS or haul gas to the casa mower?

      I think your statement on the illegality may be false.

    I am really pumped up about the new "Anthology" Star Wars movies. The first one is supposed to be about the Rebel Mission to steal the death star plans… and that sounds really, really good to me. I would be interested in the story of Boba Fett as well.

    Re: The Fry Machine… I keep looking at that Pic and wonder/hope if that machine is real.

    Gotta concur with previous posters – Boba Fett is boring to me, and I was annoyed he got as much backstory in the prequels as he did. Given that, why does he need ANOTHER standalone film?

    But man, am I ever pumped up about the first standalone film they've announced. I would be perfectly happy if they would operate under the Marvel Cinematic Universe strategy of having individual films that all dovetail into larger-scale epics.

    Throw in today's confirmation of a new Indy film, and the 13-yr-old version of me is pretty excited. I think we can all collectively agree to ignore the Crystal Skull disaster, pretend like it never happened, and hope for a revitalization of that franchise. USA was running all four movies this past Sunday (in reverse order, inexplicably), and the first three hold up so well that I think there's room for more.

      Jango Fett was the one with all the back story, really, which was necessary because of the clone army. I was more offended by Obi-Wan's terrible acting than anything else.

      You'll have to forget more than the Crystal Skull where Lucas is concerned. Ewoks, Jar Jar and the Cajun/black frog people, little Anikin and the little Greedo friends, etc. Lucas has jumped the shark, although little kids love that stuff and he turns them into life-long fans. Too bad he can't do it with a single Wookie and a princess in a bikini like he used to.

      • Ben W. says:

        True – I just felt like the Jango Fett story was concocted as a response to fan infatuation with Boba Fett.

        Thankfully, Lucas is not involved in the production of the new Star Wars films, so he can't screw them up. I think the same holds true for any future Indy films, but I could be wrong on that.

        • Mr. Mike Honcho says:

          What is this 5th Indy film everyone is talking about? Crystal Skull? What the heck is that?

  4. thanks for the link.
