comment If there are only two Siths, why aren't they easily defeated?
I suspect that the two thing was added in to the story when the prequels were written. They are objectively terrible and horribly written, so it doesn't have to make sense. It's probably just stupid, like everything else in the prequels.

Fixing a coaster brake isn't hard. Just take it apart, clean everything, put in a light oil, and put it all back in reverse order.

comment Why did Red Squadron give their call signs in random order?
This is the perfect answer for most star wars related questions, and variants of it could cover questions about minutiae in various other fantasy works.

comment How big is the Death Star compared to the Executor
@Zibbobz nah. The alderon thing literally knocked kenobi on his ass and he was nowhere nearby. You're just making wild rationalizations. But that's 90% of the purpose of this site.

If obi wan shuddered when the alderon blew up a jillion light years away, why didn't a room full jedis on the death star flinch when all these people died?

That's kind of a bull shit suggestion. It is not PSR-0 compliant.

Tuvix was an awful episode. It shouldn't count as "cannon".

comment How can I find the version of the Fedora I use?
It doesn't really matter which site it is on. Everyone uses google not the sites. It's an aribitrary distinction.

@octi please don't use the term retarded like that. This isn't an episode of Shameless and you aren't William H. Macy.

comment Why did Jango Fett jump into the arena to engage Master Windu?
The whole prequel trilogy was terribly written. Looking for meaningful reasons for stuff like this is futile and an exercise in making up a plausible-sounding reason. The real reason is that the writers and director thought it would look cool and play well with the audience. Fans loved Boba Fett in the old movies, so they built in a new character that plays off that popularity, and of course they have him show down against the strongest jedi around, just like in the old film. It's pure calculated plot-making, there is nothing more significant to it.

comment What should I do straight after installing Ubuntu?
It's hardly a stretch to call it amazon spyware, and disabling it should be done straight after a new install. It serves to purpose. "I wanted to start chrome, but maybe I'll buy this book about chrome instead" said no one ever.

comment Are flip saddle posts available
Fitting a child seat won't be easy or even possible on every frame. Above all else they are designed to maximize safety, not ease of installation. Consider getting a bike trailer instead. They are arguably a safer option anyway, and what limited statistics exist on the topic bear that out. And bike trailers fit on more bikes than child seats do.
