Maybe it turns out that who the teacher was and which book was correct really didn't matter because in the end, all the books taught practically the same things and they were attempts to make the students better people, but obviously failed because they started arguing.

I feel that would require all the books not to contradict one another. Otherwise there are lies in the books and if the teacher uses lies to teach truths then he's a rather poor teacher.

...one again, totally something a student might say and this writer has no control over or affiliation with said student

and then, other students started writing their own textbooks and studying them scientists because there were no teachers giving curriculums which caused a ruckus from the popular textbook readers. the ones that didn't feel the popular textbooks had enough information were then crucified and burned for no apparent reason

Well the only rebels on endor were the 23 or so members of the strike team against an entire legion, 9000ish, stormtroopers. Yes the stormtroopers broke rank and went after the groups of ewoks, playing into the guerilla tactics of the ewoks, but I still think it is clear the armor did little good in this situation.

I think the best argument for the use of stormtrooper armor is that it is more of a pressure suit for use in a variety of atmospheres. Sure they put some plastoid plates on it, but that is as much for intimidation as actual combat effectiveness. I guess the armor in the lore is good against lower tech blasters and projectile weapons, but as seen in the movies it seems fairly useless.

Well think about this. You never actually see those storm troopers die. The camera cuts away during it so we kind of just assume they do, but what if they don't? You would be just as justified in saying that after you see those storm troopers that are shooting at the heroes turn around because they are getting attacked by a group of Ewoks, they manage to kick the Ewoks back, having been unhurt by the rocks that hit their armor, and then shot the Ewoks at close range. At the range, even their 90 percent miss rate would be enough to hit. And when you see the Ewoks pelt the troopers with rocks, perhaps the ones that fall over simply get up and stagger through the brush to get far enough away to turn and shoot without having their gun knocked out of their hand?

The only clones you see die are the ones who are on the speeders that get roped and smash into a tree.

It's obvious that they camera didn't like showing Ewoks dying. The only one you see die has his own little sad moment. I think if you could see the bigger picture, you would see that it was a bunch of Ewoks trying to fight against troopers and only not dying in droves because they had the element of surprise but can't really take out the clones.

but the armor didnt help against the ewoks and their weapons literally couldnt have been more primitive. the little fuzzy bears destroyed them.

I think the point stands. If most of the time you are facing blasters, then you dont bother protecting against sticks. If you are worried about sticks, you dont wear armor that is so easily defeated by them. There are primitive societies all over the world, but you dont see the us military wearing plate armor.
User avatar #71 - Vandeekree (01/24/2014) [-]
I'm not sure what movie you watched but they definitely didn't destroy the clones. In the movie you see them launch a volley of arrow and one storm trooper gets hit in the shoulder between armor plates. The only time you see the Ewoks really win is when the troopers get taken by surprise and swarmed, tackled and beaten with rocks. No armor is good enough if you can't move under the weight of several midgets in costumes and slowly have your helmet cracked with a rock. You also see a group of clones get pelted by large rock throne by 10 or so Ewoks but it looks like it just makes them stumble from the hit and hobble away through the brush.
The reason the clones lost was because they were outnumberd, ambushed, and were fighting both Ewoks(who did relatively little) and the rebel troops at the same time. So I would disagree that the armor didn't help. It made it so the Ewok's only good tactic was to tackle the troopers before they got shot.

The walkers, however, are another story, those things literally trip on a log, fall over, and catch fire.

It's also possible that said knights are passing through this town, or that armor is just a bitch and a half to remove.

But they are at the table with helmets on. So they are
a. taking their helmets off, sipping, then putting them back on
b. awkwardly pouring the drink through some opening in the helmet
c. sitting there holding drinks they are not drinking

I guess you could if you had a flat sheet of extremely high purity silicon crystals. Then you would dope it, add a thin layer of material, etch a design, etc.

If the hair was made from silicon
User avatar #13 - Einsty (01/17/2014) [-]
From almost pure silicon.
And wide enough to fit in the machine. They use layers cut from approximately 0.5m cylindrical ingots.

Also, the silicon is used only for the transistors, you also need a lot of copper wiring on top, else it would be just a heap of useless silicon grids.

Do you not have morals? Like seriously do you not have any? You claim that you only do as the bible instructs every time someone asks you about morals, but do you not know right from wrong without religion?

If so perhaps you should learn it. I'm an agnostic and I still know what's right from wrong without a higher entity instructing me on it. If the only thing keeping you from being a moral-less prick is religion then you are probably a psychopath.

Now I strongly disagree that more studies need to be done in order to come to a consensus. All of the leading bodies which have done research on the subject have found no reason to indicate that gays are naturally more likely through their expression of sexuality to have any types of adverse effects. The only people I have heard calling for more research are the same people claiming that climate change is not a thing or that natural selection doesnt happen. There is a consensus in the scientific community and it is people who are not a part of the community who claim that they cant make conclusions (because they dont like the ones made)
