let's be real. at this rate we're not lasting until 2075.

The rest of the world may build a wall around the US in 2075.

Geeez, I just read a story about a liberal satire Facebook page that would publish absolutely outlandish, ridiculous made-up conservative propaganda, stuff so absurd nobody with half a brain could take it seriously... and conservatives are taking it at face value.

Oh don't make me go talk to Peter Dutton. My week has been painful enough as it is...

he cant leave quarantine until he talks to the king of the potato people

@  Pennpenn : (18 November 2018 - 01:03 AM)

Debateable. It's a sunday anyway. Wonder if I'll still feel up and ready to go tomorrow. Don't want to take too many days off leading up to the end of the year.

@  MEDdMI : (18 November 2018 - 12:01 AM)

@Pennpenn hooray! Now you can leave quarantine.

Welp, good morning so far. My brother helped me get my sister in law's christmas gift, and reminded me I still had to get my mom's calendar for next year.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2018 - 08:22 AM)

Oh yeah, feeling feverish. What fun.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 November 2018 - 10:07 PM)

My father used to ask his boss that question. Then he STOPPED asking, and got used to twiddling his thumbs. Made things so much easier, and didn't actually change how his bosses thought of him.

@  Nevermore : (16 November 2018 - 07:31 PM)

So of course you wait until the end of your shift like everyone else, THEN you walk up to the manager on duty and ask him what you're supposed to do during the requested overtime.

@  Nevermore : (16 November 2018 - 07:30 PM)

Fun: The employer allows (paid) voluntary overtime, cannot backtrack on the permit, and before the regular end of your shift, you notice you're rapidly running out of work.

@  Paladin : (16 November 2018 - 12:34 PM)

settle a bet: is "drama queen" a gender-neutral description?

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 November 2018 - 08:38 PM)

Sounds like management is the same everywhere :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2018 - 08:12 PM)

My bosses are too busy trying to see if they can have their heads up their own asses while still being able to kiss the asses of everyone above them. It'd be amusing to watch if I wasn't one of the ones trying to get everything done to cover for it.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:05 PM)

He's living by the standard "bow to those below you; kick at those above you. You got more people below you than above you."

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:04 PM)

Whenever we go on strike, he's there with us. He told me that this is the only completely legal way for him to show his own bosses the finger,

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:03 PM)

Well, this guy has been getting flak from above, it's just that he doesn't care. He's doing what he thinks is right. He's easily the smartest of my superiors, and also the one with the biggest balls.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2018 - 05:24 PM)

Must be nice, having a boss that cares.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 November 2018 - 01:03 PM)

Indeed.

@  Echowarrior : (15 November 2018 - 11:58 AM)

That's a good superior.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:21 AM)

Arguing in my favor that I was working under sub-par conditions, there were problems with sudden halts of the conveyor and other issues that affected my productivity, and besides, why was this guy giving a feedback to one of HIS subordinates, wich was his job?

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:19 AM)

Also, yesterday he stood up for me when a superior from the department I was sent to was giving me a productivity feedback.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:19 AM)

So this week all of my superiors save one guy are absent, and I'm not noticing a difference. Which says a lot about this guy.

@  Waspinator : (15 November 2018 - 03:28 AM)

That's hateriffic.

@  MEDdMI : (14 November 2018 - 11:48 PM)

1/4 of duck is 1/4 of the turd in turducken

@  Paladin : (14 November 2018 - 12:18 PM)

not really. duck meat is fowl.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2018 - 12:01 PM)

Couldn't we just cook the duck? I mean, it would be tastier...

First thought: I guess the title refers to Luke or Rey

Second thought: What about Finn?

Third thought: What if they start a new force tradition for the good guys?

Fourth thought: "Jedi" is also plural. Luke, Rey, Finn, and Kylo may, as a group, be "The Last Jedi".

Or it could just be that Luke is the last official Jedi.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

So this is Episode 8, which comes out this December, right? The movie timeline is already starting to get fuzzy for me, with everyone talking about Rogue One because it made a billion dollars, about Han Solo because casting is underway, about Episode 9 because they have to figure out Leia, about the next anthology movie.... it's hard to keep up.  

 

From the title, I thought maybe this was the rumored movie with Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan between Episode III and IV...

Good title.  I imagine this is a reference to Luke.  Since this movie will likely be mostly about him (and others interactions or actions because of him.

 

I do wonder if his teachings will lead to a different order, neither Jedi or Sith.

I like it.  I'm not sure I like where my imagination is going with it, but I like it.
 
Was it confirmed that Finn had no connection to the Force? I always assume it'd be like Leia or Luke - not there until specifically trained. 
 
So I think we can assume that "The Last Jedi" is probably Luke, as he's the only one around at this point who specifically claimed the Jedi title.  I wonder what that means for Rey - will she be something else? Likewise for Ren, who I'm still pretty sure will be redeemed (it's Star Wars: Redemption & Family are what it does).

EDIT: Spoiler space? What spoiler space. *Jedi handwave* There was no spoiler space here. You never saw spoiler space. Nope. Not at all. You may go about your business. Move along.

We're two weeks out from the Super Bowl. I'm betting we get a teaser trailer there and then I'll see a full trailer in person this April at Celebration.

 

Also, like others have said, you must remember that Jedi is a plurale tantum, meaning that it is a plural noun as well as a singular. "One Jedi, many Jedi." So it could be referencing the students at the school, it could refer to Luke, to Rey, to Luke and Rey, or even to the Jedi in a Holocron that Luke is learning from. It could literally be anyone at anytime who was a Jedi.

There's a part of me that wonderes whether the name needed to be changed after Fisher's death - but the fact that Jedi can be plural would discount that anyway.

It's been said that the name of the movie was known way back during the first draft of the movie's script.

Only a Sith deals in absolutes.

 

It could be as Marduk speculated (again why the spoilers for something unconfirmed) and Rey follows her own path forward. We have ideas that other force traditions are in the galaxy. Zeb's people believing in the Ashla and the Bogan, Bendu himself, The Nightsisters, there's nothing stating that Rey has to follow the Jedi path. As far as official canon goes the Jedi are still the stand offish warrior trained monks and nothing in the current canon to my knowledge had Luke skew away from that philosophy. As far as we know Luke had no relationships like his Legends canon version did. If Anything Luke is the last Jedi so that Rey can restore the light without being held by the boundaries of the dogmatic ways of the Jedi and may indeed take his experience as the last Jedi to push her away from what he did.

On an island in an ocean though he's looking rather wry

Rey will stand off'ring saber to Luke the last Jedi

Wouldn't it be Last of the Jedi if more than one? I mean Yoda's wording in episode 6. Plus we've heard cases like "the Jedi", "a Jedi". Jedi alone doesn't mean multiple.

I will be kind of disappointed if Finn doesn't have latent force talent too. I liked the idea that his 'Force Awakening' is what broke the First Orders mental conditioning.

Good title. Not grest, but mysterious and intriguing. Please be good! :)

While anything is possible, I think Finn was always a red herring when it comes to Force sensitivity. I think it's just as powerful that he's a good guy by nature, who cast off the FO's training when he realized it was wrong. Not everyone in Star Wars that does something hard needs to have been helped by hidden Force abilities.

I think the title refers to Luke as the last Jedi Knight/Master, Rey will be his Padwan learner. As for Flin, I think he'll awaken from his coma in this film and evenly join Chew & Rey as the owners of the Falcon but time will tell. I expect Luke has been in deep mediation in regards to the disaster that bought about the destruction of his order and this film will likely see Rey learning the ways of a jedi and maybe play out a bit like Empire Strikes Back, where the First Order with Ren and Stoke come seeking revenge for the destruction of Star Killer Base, you can bet the Rebels would of changed bases after their celeberation of the destruction of Star Killer base because the First order are likely to come seeking revenge, that's pretty much I thoughts at the moment, I will see this film in cinemas on my Birthday, next January, just as I saw Rouge One on my birthday just gone.
