Other Collectibles / McDonald's Clone Wars Happy Meal Toys
« on: July 11, 2008, 02:42 PM »
Here is a picture of the new McDonalds Clone Wars toys. To me none of these make sense. Are the characters driving the ship or is there just a huge bobble head stuck to their antenna?

Watto's Junk Yard / Paranormal Tales
« on: May 12, 2008, 01:21 PM »
Here is a thread to post your paranormal stories. Anything the mods will allow.

Let me start it off with this one:

Freaky Phone Calls

Telephones, cordless phones, cell phones... These communication tools have become indispensable parts of our daily lives. With them we can connect with just about anyone anywhere from virtually anywhere. Voices, conversations and the business of every day moving at the speed of light along wires, through fiber optics, across the sky, under the ocean and sometimes into space and back. Is it possible, however, that these electronic gadgets that we've come to take for granted sometimes make connections beyond what can be logically explained?

Consider these true stories from people who have had unexplained, puzzling and sometimes downright unnerving experiences with their phones.

The Impossibly Cloned Call
Many years ago, when married to my first husband, I received a telephone call at about 4:20 a.m. It was my elder brother telling me he had just gotten married. The call woke up my husband and I spoke with my brother for about five minutes. I hung up and went back to sleep. About a week or so later, I was visiting at my mother's home and this same brother was there with his wife. I thanked him for calling me... and I got this odd stare and his mouth fell open. He told me he had called our mother, but he had never called me at all. I turned to my mother and she related the entire conversation she had had with him, and then I related the entire conversation I had had with him - and these conversations were literally identical and at the exact same time. - Barbara

The Phones That Called Each Other
This strange incident happened in our home at Christmas. My husband had his cell phone on our dining room table and it was turned off for the evening. My purse was in our library, where my husband was playing a computer game with our daughter. In my purse I had my cell phone turned on. As my husband and daughter were playing, my cell phone rang. My husband picked it up and it said the incoming call was coming in from his cell phone! He thought our son was playing a prank on him and ran into the room we were in and told our son to stop messing around with his cell phone. We laughed at him and asked him what he was talking about. He said, "Your phone just rang and it said the call was coming in from my phone!" This is where things get weird! My son and I were both in the same room together talking and neither one of us had left the room. We weren't even in the same room as my husband's cell phone at all. My husband checked his phone and sure enough it was off just as he had left it. We can't figure out how a call came into my phone from his phone when his phone was off and there was certainly no one in the room with his phone! Strange indeed. We were all pretty mystified over the whole incident for sure! - Janine T.

The Phone Call That Never Was
My mum usually picks me up from work and she doesn't work far from me. One Tuesday night, we were driving home when I asked her how my dad's computer classes were going. My dad usually attended the computer classes every Tuesday night. She said she didn't know as she hadn't spoken to him about it. She asked me why. I replied, "Well, when I was speaking to him he said he was having some trouble. They had been given three assignments to complete, but he couldn't finish assignment number two as the computer wouldn't 'save as.' I think he eventually managed to do them all though."

"Oh, right." she said. That night, with the conversation with my mum forgotten, I was sitting watching TV, when my dad knocked on my door. He said, "I was speaking to mum earlier about the conversation you had about my computer class. How did you know we had three assignments and I had trouble with the second one?"

Confused, I said, "You told me that on the phone."

"No, I didn't. There is no way you could have known that because I have just come from my computer class. You had the conversation with mum before I went, and what you told mum happened tonight. I couldn't have known we had three assignments as I missed last week's class."

We both just sat there looking at each other trying to figure out how I knew what was going to happen before it did. I was sure we had spoken on the phone about it, but how could we if it hadn't happened? The strange thing is, I can remember my dad telling me what happened on the phone, but I can't recall how, where and when. - Cian B.

Well of the Souls / What kind of displays are you seeing?
« on: May 2, 2008, 12:45 PM »
When the Transformers and Spiderman movies came out, there were large display banners and special sections for these movie's toys. Are you seeing something simular displays for Indiana Jones? As of today, I have not seen ANY Indiana Jones toys. I don't even see price tags or empty shelves or even a banner at my local Targets. Is Walmart or TRU doing something special (like they did for ROTS)?

Watto's Junk Yard / Doctor Who
« on: April 18, 2008, 04:09 PM »
I just finished watching the first episode of series 4 of Doctor Who. (Partners in Crime). I guess Voyage of the Damned (episode 0) premieres tonight on SciFi. This one is a pretty silly episode about weight loss pills that make the fat literally walk away. It reminds me of the first Sara Jane Adventure about the soda pop with secret ingredient Bane. Catherine Tate is back and seems to be much toned down from series 3's Christmas special even though her mom is really annoying. There is pretty funny moment when the Doctor sees Tate again. All I kept thinking was Run away Doctor! Run away! Big suprise at the ending that we kind of talked about in the Torchwood thread.

It's good to have the Doctor back.

This article is from the telegraph.co.uk.

A Star Wars fan got closer to his idols than he would perhaps have liked when he was attacked in his garden by Darth Vader.


Jedi Master Jonba Hehol - known to family and friends as Barney Jones, 36, of Holyhead - was giving a TV interview in his back garden for a documentary when a man, dressed in a black bin-bag and wearing Darth Vader's trademark shiny black helmet, leapt over his garden fence.

   
How the assailant may have looked
Wielding a metal crutch - his lightsaber presumably being in for repairs - the Sith Lord proceeded to lay about his opponent, whose Jedi powers proved inadequate for the task of defending himself.

After besting Master Hehol in single combat, Vader, who The Sun reports was under the influence of alcohol, went on to assault the camera crew and a hairdresser.

Master Hehol, a hairdresser, who founded the first-ever British Jedi Church in loving homage to the world-famous science fiction franchise with his brother Daniel, was unimpressed by the revenge of the Sith.

"This wasn't a joke. This was serious," he said.

Police are investigating a claim of assault.

The Jedi "religion" was born as a joke in the 2001 census, when almost 400,000 people claimed to believe in the Jedi faith.

advertisementBased on the teachings of Yoda, the crinkly green dwarf of the films, the "church" has a branch in Florida and plans to open another in the Philippines.

Watto's Junk Yard / The official shipping carriers suck thread
« on: March 4, 2008, 09:41 AM »
Here is your place to complain about the shipping carriers we all are faced to deal with.

My complaint today is about UPS. They have a package of mine that was loaded on the truck on 2/26 and is still out of delivery! It was originally scheduled for arrival on 2/27 but they keep pushing it back. Considering they loaded the truck about ten miles away from me why does it take more than a week for the truck to get to my house? Is the guy pushing the truck? Is he lost? Are they taking the most indirect delivery route known to man? Why does everything that goes thru UPS take more than a week to get here even if it is only across town? Even standard USPS is faster!

American Idol style!

We sooo need to make this guy his own Star Wars figure. Anyone up for a group project for this? We could also do the Star Wars girl too.
