  • Noodles are 4000 years old, as least.

Would you describe Star Wars as a "life-defining event" or in some way personally important to you? Have you watched the originals so many times that you've memorized all the dialogue, and don't experience any happiness watching them, besides the warm comfort of familiarity? Is Star Wars an unfeeling, unresponding, but safe and predictable surrogate mother to you?
