Hmmm

So why is it "a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away?" Is the world of Jedis and Sith lords part of the universe's past? Is Earth just a backwater planet whose humanoids have yet to achieve serious full-fledged spaceflight?

Why are hairstyles so different in the future (or the futuristic past)? But whether it's Princess Leia or Queen Amidala sporting cinnabuns, this is a significant improvement over the hairspray plastered big hair (complete with poufy high-rise bangs) that middle school and high school girls used to sport. They probably still do, somewhere out there.

Addendum: I never had big hair. I couldn't be bothered with all the effort. My sisters, on the other hand....

Take any exit off the NJ Turnpike, pull into any strip mall and you can find the "cobra bangs" (that is what my best friend and I snidely called them in school) alive and well. Aquanet was the hairspay of choice I seem to remember...

For a milisecond, you sounded fairly Shandean. Let me try and get my act together and let this look like an in-topic comment ;) Have you heard about an upcoming film version of 'Tristram Shandy' for 2005? There are rumours out there...but no facts it seems.

Seems that bangs-and-ponytail is quite hip here this year, however they do without hairspray, and it looks okay, slighty grungy. No pouf. No chick looks. Haleluyah.
