Nope, I'm just saying it was caused by the government's response to the failure of the free market's ability to regulate itself. A response that was sought by the perpetrators, looking out for their self-interest at the expense of everyone else. The fault and blame lies with the free market, this is undeniable. Even if the government had allowed the collapse of major investment banks, the fault would still be with the banks but the fallout would have been far worse.I'm not...
The devaluing of currency would affect the people at the top as well as the people at the bottom and let's not forget that the problems were initially caused by the under-regulation in the finance sector, any subsequent action by the government was to repair damage caused by the private sector. There's a news reporter here venting about the recent market rigging by multiple banks:The banks were asking not to be regulated nor have their actions made criminal offences and...
Yeah I'm sure 12 year old boys are now devastated by the explanation, the Force itself didn't change at all. Midi-chlorians aren't used as a means to determine force power just potential. What you have thought about the originals was wrong all this time. What did you think Luke Skywalker meant when he said 'the Force runs strong in my family'? That was in the original trilogy. There was no instant destruction of anything, it was an explanation of the entire story. Without...
Quicktime 7 is reported to work in Yosemite. You can try it for free:http://store.apple.com/us/product/D3380Z/A/quicktime-7-pro-for-mac-os-xThe Pro version needs to be unlocked but that's for import/export. After installing Perian, once Quicktime 7 is relaunched, it should play all older formats like before. VLC is good for playback as you can set custom keys for skip as well as subtitles, audio sync in real-time and other things. Quicktime Pro is useful as you can take an...
It was in the link above:http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Midi-chlorian#Originswhich links to this book:http://www.amazon.com/Making-Star-Wars-Definitive-Original/dp/0345494768and here:http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=z7GbBAAAQBAJ&pg=PT73"If you dig deep enough into the Lucasfilm archives, you'll find Lucas talking about midi-chlorians as early as August 1977... he said it during a role-playing exercise designed to help him flesh out Star Wars concepts after the original...
Or figure out how to distribute it more evenly so that it's not all weighted towards a tiny minority. The top 10% of people in the US own 75% of all the assets. If they owned 30% and 45% of the assets went to the other 90% of people, the assets of the other 90% would go up nearly 3x. Not that the distribution would be even but increasing the market doesn't really help if the distribution is way off because it stays way off.It's destructive because without it they would...
1-3. Not quite, you still need a connection to it. A blood transfusion also doesn't transfer the higher count to the rest of the body's parts - they are in every living cell, not just blood cells. It might not be possible to clone midi-chlorians safely.4. Yes, a blood test is how they test for it:http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Midi-chlorian"Midi-chlorian counts were measured through a blood test; the Jedi used this method to locate Force-sensitive children before their...
Vainglory, they showed it off at one of their events:
I think it did the opposite. Without it being genetic, anyone could become a powerful Jedi or Sith. This way, it makes it like royalty where it would follow the bloodline.Sure it would make people feel better that if they just tried hard enough they could become the most powerful Jedi/Sith but what kind of lie is that to tell young children?It's used as an explanation for the life-force. Nobody knows what causes life to happen. Give any biologist in the world a dead body...
I thought the trailer was pretty boring. If it's not going to reveal much about what's going on then at least make it interesting to watch. These fan-made ones are better:
