  • Before the second prequel, I always assumed the "Boba" in Boba Fett was the female version of "Bob" in the same way that "Roberta" is the female version of "Robert". Related is Mark Hamil's excellent rejected idea for Boba Fett.
  • Noodles are 4000 years old, as least. The hidden lead is that the archaeological record suggests rice and millet were dominant in ancient northern China, whereas the oldest transmitted literature lists the five staple grains as broomcorn millet, foxtail millet, soybeans, wheat (but what kind?), and hemp.

The fact that those five were so often singled out probably reflects more that they could be grown in the north, even if rice was apparently quite common.
