Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
At a trivia night those who were the best at Star Wars trivia were those who worked in the IT field or those who are into tennis and particularly golf. A guess as to why both of these professions lead to Star Wars knowledge is not just having an interest in the story, but also because IT folks are on a computer a lot because of their work and tennis and golf fiends are always looking for great places to travel for a tennis or golf vacation. Or maybe these folks are just Star Wars freaks. I have a friend who loves to play tennis, so much so that he developed a swelling of the tendons that caused pain in his right elbow and arm. He did an online search for doctors that treated him in Las Vegas where he lives. The name Dr. Physio showed in the search. What a find! For over 25 years Dr. Physio has treated tennis elbow, elbow pain, wrist pain and shoulder pain in association with lateral epicondylitis and medial epicondylitis, known as golf elbow. After an initial appointment where my friend was given a thorough diagnostic examination, Dr Physio then created a rehabilitation program that utilized state – of – the – art technology. By following a specific set of exercises, joint mobilization, and stretching techniques, the pain and swelling from the lateral epicondylitis receded and finally disappeared. While my friend was doing his set of exercises he would watch Star Wars movies and have his wife ask him trivia questions. He was able to not only able to overcome the pain, muscle weakness, and joint restrictions, but at the same time indulge in learning more arcane information about Star Wars. I would not recommend getting injured and then doing rehab in order to stock up on some trivia for the next Star Wars bingo night, but at least my friend was able to turn his injury into something positive!
Who has never heard about “Star Wars” ? Whether you like it or not, nobody can ignore the fact that Star Wars is one of the most popular series of all times. And a lot of little boys have been dreaming of being trained to be the next Jedi who would save the world.
Except the story that we all know, there are a lot of interesting information about how these movies have been made by George Lucas. The difficult thing George Lucas had to overcome was the fact that, when he started his writing, the end of the story was already well – known by all fans of Star Wars. Three movies had been released in 1977, 1980 and 1983, and were already a world – wide pop culture phenomenon.
