1. This just sounds retarded. Why the mariannas trench? because spooky?
2. That sounds like some ******** someone made up to get attention after Cobain's death
3. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reversal_of_Fortune_%282005_film%29 It's actually a good example of what happens when you win the lottery.
4. Her name is Eleanor
5. As others have stated, he died of unknown causes
6. see pic

The Mariannas Trench is the deepest point in the ocean. The idea is to place a time capsule there for future civilisations to discover should they ever look down there (hence why it is a sculpture, to stand out.)

The reason it's in such an impractical place is because theoretically, any alien race that would go so deep into the ocean is likely looking for something (most likely signs of life) and then they find a really big sculpture down there filled with DNA to revive species from. It's also because it is a last resort. If the entire surface of the planet is raved to the point that no DNA has survived then it's logical to have a backup stored as far away from the surface as possible.

It's a 'just in case' measure. Just in case everything else fails.

Also. Ashoka is best apprentice. I expect she'll be making a return in Rebels.

It sound silly, and ridiculously expensive. You'd need a hell of a strong structure that will
A. preserve the DNA
B. not get destroyed outright by the pressure.

I agree, it sounds really expensive but it also sounds like a really good idea. We've seen quite recently how close to death we came with how close that meteor came to us (even if it missed by a long-shot it was still close in space-terms) and really, we could be ended by any number of disasters.

Making a failsafe in possibly the safest place imaginable doesn't sound too far-fetched when you consider the destructive force that would be necessary in order to make it necessary for something like that to exist in the first place.

Still, it's not the fore-front of science, rather it's the back-foot of science. I'm happy we have failsafes like that but it's not as interesting as what other thing happen to be going on recently.

Also, what are your views on Rebels?

Which rebels

and if the the trench collapses on itself, its not a great spot anymore...

Well, that's pretty much a given. But it's not the only capsule.

And Rebels is the series that's set to replace Clone Wars. Since Clone Wars is owned by Cartoon Network, Disney only allowed a few final episodes to be finished before shifting production to a new series, Rebels, that takes place after the rise of the Empire.

The same production team and animation style are going into it but It, sadly, means we won't be getting any more Clone Wars but I imagine we'll be seeing loose ends tied up nicely and maybe some flashbacks to the events that happened between the series.

I've got a lot of faith in the series now, though, since Disney has more money than Cartoon Network to throw at the already successful team who worked on Clone Wars.

I'm not too happy about all the crap disney is doing. They are definitely getting their money's worth out of the deal

What do you mean, all the crap? Consider how Lucas treated the Star Wars films. Continual re-releases in HD and then 3D and Imax over and over again, editing needless CGI into the original films. A slew of terrible Star Wars games (though there are some fantastic ones in there too.)

Lucas Arts was no more money-grubbing than Disney and Disney have barely done anything bad with the series at all so far. Angry Birds Star Wars was a cash-in created back when Lucas owned the rights so you can't say that Disney are whoring the franchise compared to that and Yoda appearing in mobile phone adverts.

Personally, I think Disney have been really respectful to both the fans and the series. Giving the exclusive game rights to EA who own fantastic video-gaming companies like Bioware and Dice (Dice are already working on a new Star Wars Battlefront game) means that the games can afford to take more risks and be more clever. Cut less corners. EA are a huge company that can pour money into games and Star Wars is a franchise that is destined to bring revenue either way, meaning we'll probably see more experimentation that we saw from Lucas Arts.

Also, Rebels seems like a good idea to me. Clone Wars was bogged down every now and then with really stupid and pointless episodes that didn't focus on the character we cared about. The setting in the Empire period implies a much more strained experience where our heroes don't have the resources they used to have. They're fighting an enemy larger than ever before and doing so whilst low on every resource imaginable. It seems like a masterstroke to me.

So, what exactly do you think Disney have done wrong in this deal? I get the feeling I must be missing something because all they've done thusfar seems to be decent enough to me.

Well, yeah, it just looked like you were trying to pose as an anon looking retarded, then correcting the anon/yourself to gain thumbs. However, as I have no evidence to support this claim, I have to accept your statement, my apologies.
