    I'm not a NASCAR fan, but Richard Petty's dad won the Daytona 500 once, so I guess Richard Petty would count.
  2. Do I get points for having been in the same room as Jakob Dylan and Sean Lennon? I was talking to Eddie Vedder at the time.

    Not George W. Bush, and not George H.W. Bush for that matter. Ol' Prescott got away with doing business with the Nazis, for crying out loud.

    I know there was no mention of midichlorians in the original triology. So I was wondering if they were tested in any of the books. Then again, after Obi-Wan and Yoda died, did anyone else know what midichlorians were?

    Good question E Street. I never read any of the books, but Phantom Menace was the first tie I'd heard them mentioned. Maybe they died with the olf-school Jedi.

    And it is a given Jakob Dylan aint better than old Bobby Zimmerman, Julian Lennon is a hell of a lot better than Sean Lennon. His first album was good. Sean Lennon has too much of his mother's non-talent to be any good.

    Whacky threadjack here. No idea if they were tested in the books. I've read maybe 10 of them...but there are a LOT more than that. Just to take a guess...Anakin was a "virgin birth" ... the prevailing theories were that either the midichlorians impregnated his mother somehow or Palpatine made it happen. That's why he was the chosen one....which would make Luke and Leah more watered-down versions, at least in terms of power.

    Yes....I'm sick in the head...I admit it...

    Hey, people keep asking questions....but yes there is....any further midichlorian debates should go on the running geek thread.
