Hipster Hitler Wampa "The kid ran into something, and it wasn't just the cold." Wampa ice creatures were carnivorous predatory reptomammals indigenous to the remote Outer Rim Territories ice planet Hoth. The bipedal beasts stood over two meters in height with shaggy white fur constantly stained by the blood and guts of slaughtered prey. Wampas were armed with jagged yellow teeth and deadly claws. While rarely seen away from their remote homeworld, wampas were known to have participated in illegal gladiatorial combat venues. Biology and appearance Edit "You're talking about a predator two and a half meters tall, sometimes weighing two hundred kilograms or more, with razor-sharp teeth and claws. ―Vesto Slipher, InterGalactic Banking Clan[src] Covered with shaggy white fur, standing at heights of up to three meters, and weighing an average of 150 kilograms, Hoth's wampa ice creatures were lethal predatory beasts.

Youtube to MP4 Converter Online Books : "The Essential Psychedelic Guide" - Psilocybin INTENSITY: 3 to 7 for most experiences. MATERIAL: There are dozens of species of mushrooms which contain the psychoactive alkaloids psilocybin/psilocin in active amounts. 99% of the psilocybin mushrooms I've seen sold on the underground market are the variety known as Psilocybe cubensis (also called Stropharia cubensis), and dosage levels discussed below pertain to this variety. Some species of psilocybin mushrooms contain up to 10 times as much psilocybin by weight as cubensis, producing an equivalent experience at a much lower dose. HISTORY: The use of psilocybin mushrooms can be traced back thousands of years. Terence McKenna suggests that hallucinogenic mushroom use may be much older than 3000 years, with the mushrooms being consumed and worshipped by early forms of humankind. DOSAGE: Although some users eat just one gram of "shrooms," dried weight, I find this produces little more than threshold effects. Psilocybin can also be combined with LSD, DMT, or Nitrous Oxide.
Bantha Banthas were sturdy and easily domesticated beasts of burden that were found all over the galaxy. Anatomy Edit The bantha was one of the most adaptable herbivorous creatures in the galaxy and could be found on several worlds. Bulls tended to be larger than the cows and both genders grew a pair of spiral horns. The distinctive spiral horns of the bantha grew at the rate of a knob each year. Banthas used their dexterous, sensitive tongue, as a sort of hand used in pulling up grass and shrubs from the ground. Banthas traveled in herds of up to twenty-five individuals, led by the oldest, strongest female. Female banthas produced blue milk from mammary glands that was consumed by sentients as a drink. Banthas had three-nailed hooves that were typically trimmed by their owners. Banthas were harvested for their meat by workers or were put in animal nurseries for long-term sustained harvesting on multiple worlds. Subspecies Swamp banthas were brought to Ohma-D'un to help colonize the moon. Edit
Symbols OK, in addition to the alt codes I listed in an earlier post, I finally found a website that listed some of the more elusive alt codes that can be used in your Twitter posts. So far, I’m finding that many of them below are not showing up properly when typed directly into Twitter anymore. If that is the case for you, you can simply copy and paste them from below. ♥ Now, something I’ve just tried out is posting to Twitter using an email from Outlook to my ping.fm account (then ping sends to Twitter). The alt-codes below work this way, but ping.fm also sends an extra post to twitter saying “This is a multi-part message in MIME format.”. I located a little toolbar tool called TwitterKeys that helps with the copy/paste process. A special thanks to this site where I found them, As an extra bit of fun and coolness, I located a website that has something called “Twitter Art“. OK, I’m done wasting time on this now… back to work. Like this:

Think you know it all about medical marijuana? Advertisement Midi-chlorian "Without the midi-chlorians, life could not exist, and we would have no knowledge of the Force. They continually speak to us, telling us the will of the Force. When you learn to quiet your mind, you'll hear them speaking to you." ―Qui-Gon Jinn, to Anakin Skywalker[src] Midi-chlorians were intelligent microscopic life forms that lived symbiotically inside the cells of all living things. Midi-chlorian counts were measured through a blood test; the Jedi used this method to locate Force-sensitive children before their Order was purged by the Galactic Empire. When not forbidden, studies of midi-chlorians occurred among those who could master the Force and those who could not. Biology "They live inside me?" ―Anakin Skywalker[src] The Sith virus known as the Sickness could alter the midi-chlorians within an infected individual. Plagueis' work with midi-chlorians was directly rooted in what was traditionally considered the Living Force, or those energies attached to the anima and the pneuma.
