The Jedi Council are def compromised and comfortable like centrist Dems. Qui-Gon is a Bernie surrogate, tear the whole thing down and let the impoverished share in the Force.

Joking aside, pretty sure Nute Gunray and Lott Dodd were named after Newt Gingrich and Trent Lott.

Well I hope this settles the whole Last Jedi hyperspace suicide debate:

"nobody thought of it before just because" and "you just have a bad imagination" are both terrible arguments.

and i never once said that it always had to be a suicide mission like that guy seems to think. droid-piloted ships would do just as well, or even just large slugs fired out of a hyperspace cannon mounted on a capital ship.

basically my largest problem with that scene is that nobody seems to have even thought of the concept of a kinetic weapon at all in the star wars galaxy until several millenia after they developed practical FTL travel .

I agree, that thread didn't really change my mind at all.

That scene never bothered me at all. Like, I don't understand why people get so worked up about it.

I just chalk it up to, under absolutely desperate circumstances, you might resort to something you'd never do otherwise.

if they had presented that as some sort of inspiration from a forgotten obsolete piece of technology (sort of like we might find current rifles and bullets obsolete if we invented laser rifles that have unlimited ammo), rather than a light bulb moment like the apple hitting isaac newton in the head, i would have had very little to complain about. all they would have had to do is have a character come across an old broken artillery piece somewhere for 5 seconds and take a brief moment to think about it.

My problem is only that it's now an option all the time, but I doubt they'll ever use it again.
