So you think the Social Scientists (people who have PHD degree in Art’s social science discipline) “will get choked” because they think Taoism is backward just because Star Wars says so?

Oh my, no.  I'm just pointing out that these social scientists of yours share the opinion of an Imperial officer.  I wouldn't consider it a bad thing to be called "backwards" by such people.

I can't believe people can actually make a living being a "social scientist". It's nearly as bad as "waste disposal management".

Then you might as well legalize stem cell research then you can choose all the intelligent pretty people to be bred only. Then in a society, who will be the factory worker, who will be a rubbish bin collector?

Dwarves, obviously!

Hey, worked okay in Brace New World (except for the soul-sucking emptiness of it all).

Also, what the hell are you talking about?

Imp Officers are racist, arrogant tools, generally. David's pointing out that being considering backwards by such people isn't really something to be worried about.

Unless they have a large military industrial complex backing them up.

Oh.

I am responding to M0le's response about his view that jobs in the Social Science industries are bad. My post is right under M0le's not David's and I did not quote David's last post!

Nah, M0le's just making fun of social scientists.  He's right, too.  I know a ton of them in their pupal stage of "History and Poli majors."  My roommate was one.  Lazy bastards get to sit around and read all day while I slave over a hot compiler.

Also, mint, we're both exaggerating.  Every job is necessary, even if it is just to give people something to do.  Also, stem cell research has nothing to do with eugenics (the practice of selective breeding and termination of genetic "undesirables" to create a "superior" race,) as you seem to be suggesting.

I know what M0le is saying. What I am saying is social science may not be the best degree out there to receive the best jobs but it is necessary to have jobs of all kinds in a society.

For those of you who considered yourself to be in a better job , better degree, better looking …etc than others, you need to realise you can only be studying in a better degree or in a better job if there are degrees and jobs considered not as practical, useful, well paid than yours. For looks it’s the same theory.

When scientists first created a new technology, they said it was for the good. But once a technology is being created, the scientists will explore whatever else they can with the technology and used it as something else, even something bad. E.G. Nuclear technology.

It’s true that they said that is what stem cell research is for; you never know what else they can further explore with that technology. That’s why the government here prohibited the research. The local scientists are very pissed, that when other scientists from other countries will get the fame of inventing something that possibly could have been their invention.

Actually in the Star War movies the emperor has an army of clones. Cloning is related to Stem cell research. However this has nothing to do with my response to M0le's post. The reason of why I responded to his post has been answered to NOR.

If by that you mean they're both part of the field of microbiology, then sure.

I have an ontopic question for those of you who have played KOTORiginal.  Sith names are entirely aliases, right?  As in Sidious was named Palpatine at birth, Vader was named Anakin [Quick Spoiler] Traya was named Kreia [/Quick Spoiler]

So why are Revan and Malak called Darth Revan and Darth Malak?  I thought, from the context of your character's dreams and conversations with the Council, that those were their given names as well as their Sith names (though I could be mistaken.)

Also, when did the Darth title come into being?  Neither Exar Kun nor Ulic Qel-Droma used it, nor any of the ancient (as in buried on Korriban) Sith.

Having never played KOTOR but meaning to, I think I'm the perfect cantidate to answer your questions.
Maybe when Revan and Malak turned to the dark side, it was before the concept of Darth came about?

This is Star Wars, not real life.

The other ancient Sith Lords didn't have the Darth Title too, Naga Sadow for example or Marka Ragnos. Maybe it's a Naval Rank for the Sith Fleet?

Don't think so, then Sidious would be the same rank as Vader.

I remembered something else I was grateful to Sith for: the correct pronunciation of Kashyyk.

They did pronounce it differently from KotOR, right?  Or am I going crazier?

Maybe Revan and Malak thought their names were badass enough in the first place without having to change them.

I remember the fair Jennifer Hale pronounce the planet Kashik - I do remember playing SW Battlefront and they pronounce it Kasheeeeek.
Which would you say is correct - I haven't seen EP3 yet  hmpf

As for Revan and Malak - we only really know of them before their fall in the past tense, perhaps they became Darth Revan and Darth Malak - but were known as something else to begin with - just all the Jedi thought it was too confusing to keep flicking between names when explaining the someone's own history to him/her only without trying to allow said person to realise they are talking about him/her...

Zed: OMGSpoilers!  Really, if it weren't for the fact that I'm pretty sure the dudes in TSL came before them, I'd say they invented the "Darth" title, and later generations of Sith with less kickass names to start using pseudonyms for the second part of the name.

Can someone who's played KOTwOR confirm that Nihilus, Sion, and co. came before everyone's favorite amnesiac and the jawless wonder?

Nilhus and Sion were different cases compared with Malak, one of an entity of the dark side that fed on the force the other a long dead Sith Lord who's will and the force held his tattererd body apart.

They might have fought with Malak in the Mandolorian Wars, seeing they have huge groups of Sithtroopers at there command. They may have been lurking in the shadows waiting to strike the moment Malak showed weakness like true Sith.

Like the Empire after the death of the Emperor, the Sith Empire split up into warlords like Nilhus and Sion etc.

Anyway, pretty good movie. No, scratch that, it was a great movie, awesome in fact (but those who say it was better than ROTK report to the nearest insane asylum). Something more in-depth when I have fully digested this. Probably tomorrow.

ROtJ is awesome except the Ewoks, but if you focus more on Vader and Luke's dual, you'll forget about those little bastards so much.

I know what Anakin did to those younglings and how Dooku suffers, thanks to some idiots who can't post a topic marked SPOILERS on a different forum. Sign.

Probably a slip of the keyboard, but I agree nonetheless. Someone would have to be a complete mental case to suggest that Sith is better than Return of the King..

Meh, LOTR is cool too. I'm more of the Sci-Fi type.

Also, since Anakin killed all sorts then why didn't he bump off Jar Jar too? That would have been sweet. I gather Jar Jar is still alive. Dammit.

Oh, and the force.net has the best Star Wars fanfics I have ever read.

Pitt Clemens: I think Windu dies. A few minutes after his death, you see Yoda react by nearly collapsing. I'm not the best Star Wars buff, but if Yoda reacts like that, I'm inclined to believe that person is dead.
