What Lawyers Do When They Get Bored

They write clauses into warranties, like this one for Asus computers.

There is damage caused by natural disaster, intentional or unintentional misuse, acts of war, space invasions, abuse, neglect, improper maintenance, or use under abnormal conditions.

I find this hilarious.  I’m also pretty sure if we ever do get invaded by space aliens, my computer warranty is going to be at the bottom of my list of concerns.

When family members of mine introduced me to the Star Wars movies, it changed my life. I became aware of science fiction, graphic novels, and video games all through one franchise. Star Wars has opened up so many doors for me, and I’ve seen it open up doors for other young people. As a lover of Star Wars, one of my greatest joys has been to cultivate the next generation of fans.

My first experience introducing ‘younglings’ to Star Wars was through babysitting. I brought my Star Wars: The Clone Wars movie DVD with me one night to watch with a 5-year-old boy whom I was taking care of. As soon as he saw it, he was hooked. He became enamored with Star Wars to the point where he had a Star Wars birthday that year, including a magician dressed as Obi-Wan Kenobi. This birthday party introduced the concept of Star Wars to all of the boy’s friends, and pretty soon his entire preschool was involved. Now, when I walk by his preschool, I can still see the Return of the Jedi movie poster they hung during the school’s (now annual) ‘Star Wars Day’. All the children at the preschool got to make their own light sabers and play ‘Jedi vs. Sith’ games for the day.
