What's up with everyone liking pirates now?

For the longest time, people didn't. And now, pirates are cool. Possibly due to Johnny Depp's involvement. Now all of us who liked pirates to begin with, are left out in the cold.

There's always vikings.

Funny, I never got the pirate fever. Wonder why. Star Wars fever, now...that's a different story. ;) It was the first movie I ever saw in the theatre - I was 3 1/2 - or possibly ever. My father clearly wished I was a boy. The Empire forever, man. So how cool do you think I thought it was to learn Darth Vader would be played by fellow Thornhill-dweller, Hayden Christensen? His sister (same grade) and I roomed together during the Grade 8 trip to Ottawa. Long live the Dark Side.

Pirates? Not so much. Gimme a clueless Stormtrooper and cheesy dialogue any day, though. :)

You may very well be my new favorite person on Earth having said that.

Lady, you're talking to a guy who has Yoda hanging from his rear view mirror so that the force will always guide his car.

If I ever have a son, I really want to name him Boba Fett.

Ain't nothing wrong with Star Wars.

And in an attempt to match your rooming with Darth's sister story, I must say that I got high with Obi Wan a long time ago.
