Post: How do lightsabers work?

I've been to the links posted here, and I still wonder about how a lightsaber is turned on and off. I realize there's a button that is pressed (I used to believe that a person had to use the force to...

That is my belief. As I have stated, since Anakin wasn't about to turn, and in fact even came close to fighting Darth Sidious, I believe that without the dream, he wouldn't have worried so much about...

It also doesn't answer my question about how a dream of the future can occur when the future it predicts is not immenent. I say a false future, being a lie, is of necessity an invention of a liar, an...

Alright then folks, let's explore this theory a little, and see if maybe I can see where you are finding the logic in it. Let's all consider what would have happened had Anakin not had the dreams. W...

I'm missing the connection involving the Jedis' awareness of Anakin's relationship with Padme. And I would add that Obi Wan was well aware that Anakin was smitten by her, even if he didn't realize th...

I always imagined them lookin like frogs. But rodents makes more sense given their whispering mode of speech. A frog would be more of a gut-like bellow or croaking noise.

That is what I thought, and I've heard that before too, but I still wonder why Palpatine didn't age that way on other occasions in which he used force lightning, like on Yoda or Luke.
