UK University Offering the Following Course: “Feel the Force: How to Train in the Jedi Way”

September 12, 2008

The UK’s first Jedi course teaching personal development through a Star Wars syllabus will open to students at Queen’s University in Belfast from November.

According to its publicity material, the course, Feel the Force: How to Train in the Jedi Way, teaches the real-life psychological techniques behind Jedi mind tricks.

It also claims to examine the wider issues behind the Star Wars universe, like balance, destiny, dualism, fatherhood and fascism.

The university says it hopes to attract young Star Wars fans and introduce them to education through open learning.

No prior qualifications are required and the blurb informs students that light sabres are not provided.

Girl highschool basketball player dominates

June 24, 2008

I know this is a few months, old, but a reader just brought this to my attention. Brittney Griner, a Houston junior has already committed to Baylor University. Here are her stats from the game in question.

2 dunks
29 points
11 blocks
13 rebounds
9 assist

Now, here’s an interview with Brittney and her coach. Ok, it’s great she has skills. My question is this: does anyone else think her testosterone level might just be a wee bit elevated? I mean, when they finally did a one on one interview with her a certain Austin Powers scene came to memory. Are there any former East German athletic coaches that have emigrated to the Houston area? Seriously, what’s the medical explanation for her masculine voice/features?
