That's an interesting point I've theorized about some of the force precognition. It's not just that Jedi sense attacks coming, I think they only sense lethal attacks. In the prequel trilogy (yeah yeah, I know) Kenobi kicked tons of ass, he killed Maul, he beat hundreds of droids and mercenaries, he beat Grevious like… » 11/25/14 10:24pm Tuesday 10:24pm

Even if they can still be abused, they can still have a beneficial effect, and outfitting a police force with cameras is cheaper than outfitting them with a tank and rocket launchers.

Lucifer in Supernatural, while he doesn't really have a point per se, I always found it odd that while the Host of Heaven was all "Rar rar Lucifer is the great betrayer!" In the absence of God, they all acted EXACTLY LIKE HIM. With the exception of Castiel, they all hate and resent humanity, think they should be in… » 11/21/14 2:43pm 11/21/14 2:43pm
