Dec 3rd 2010 By: Andy Khouri The whimsical speech of Jedi Master Yoda may have progressed from endearingly eccentric to Jar-Jarringly annoying in recent years and in recent films, but the 900-year-old's memorable dialogue and that of other characters from the Star Wars saga has been somewhat redeemed by cartoonist Adam Watson with some inspiration from an unlikely source: Dr. Seuss , who really should have created a book about something called a Nerfherder. Acting on that anarchic artist impulse that we love so much about the Internet, Watson reimagined some famous Star Wars scenes and characters in the style of the legendary children's author, going so far as to create all-new rhymes in the Seussian tradition. The results are of course excellent, and like all the coolest things, make you wonder why nobody did this before. You can check out more of Watson's work after the jump.
The truth about Graduate School You might be a child of the 80's if... What engineers say, and what they really mean It was the best of puns, it was the worst of puns.... Interpreting Your Dissertation Defense
You might be a child of the 80's if... This timeline appropriately describes actual events in your life: STAR WARS opens, you are still in the single digit years, and you think the creatures are WAY cool. EMPIRE STRIKES BACK opens, you are now in early double digit years, and you are convinced that the special effects are much better, the characters are cool, and you want one of every collectible out there. RETURN OF THE JEDI hits the theaters...you are now a teenager, and you cannot get your eyes off Princess Leia's breasts or Han Solo's butt. You fantasize about it, and send off to join every fan club for them on the planet, hanging posters, photos, and "teen"-type magazine spreads all over your walls and lockers at school.
How to be a Successful Evil Overlord by Peter Anspach Being an Evil Overlord seems to be a good career choice. It pays well, there are all sorts of perks and you can set your own hours.

This Evil Overlord List grew out of the exchanges on what is now the Star Trek mailing list "firstname.lastname@example.org", beginning in 1994 (when it was still "email@example.com"). We were kicking around cliches that appeared on "Deep Space 9" at the time, and I started to compile a list of classic blunders they were making.
...A guy goes into a nice restaurant bar wearing a shirt open at the collar and is met by a bouncer who tells him he must wear a necktie to gain admission. So the guy goes out to his car and he looks around for a necktie and discovers that he just doesn't have one. He sees a set of jumper cables in his trunk. In desperation he ties these around his neck, manages to fashion a fairly acceptable looking knot and lets the ends dangle free. He goes back to the restaurant and the bouncer carefully looks him over for a few minutes and then says, "Well, OK, I guess you can come in -- just don't start anything."
