May The Fourth: Star Wars By The Numbers

May 4 might be a cheesy and hacky way to talk about Star Wars (ya know, May the Fourth… may the force….), but we aren’t too proud to take a deeper dive into the nerdy world of Star Wars. After all, we are all a little bit nerdy at our core, right?

0 The amount of money actress Carrie Fisher received after the franchise created Princess Leia action figures based off her likeness.

1 – The number of stormtroopers who were considered traitors to the Empire. The stormtrooper was named “Finn,” and he made his first appearance in “Rouge One: A Star Wars Story.”

2 – The number of characters that are in every single installment of the “Star Wars” saga. Can you guess who they are? (spoiler: it’s C-3PO and R2-D2.)

4 – The amount in billions that Disney paid to George Lucas for the rights to “Star Wars.” That’s basically like being an undergrad at Ohio State for 444,444 years.

5.1 – The number in billions that makes up George Lucas’s net worth.

6 – The number in millions that make up the amount of different languages C-3PO knows. (and you thought Spanish 3 was hard…)

12 – The amount of minutes that Darth Vader appeared on-screen in the original film “Star Wars IV: A New Hope.”

80 – The amount in inches that make up the total height of Darth Vader. That translates to 6-foot-8-inches. Strangely enough, Anakin Skywalker is only 6-foot-1-inch. Bonus stats!

114 – The amount in feet that makes up the total length of Han Solo’s iconic Millennium Falcon.

250,000 – The total number of people who claim to be members of the Church of Jediism. Actually, that number is 250,001….if you are feeling this force.

The Giveaway

The redhead in the Michigan State sweatshirt I sat across from in Thompson today (2/14). If you don’t already have one, I’d love to be your Valentine.

I hate the people that loudly chew their food or smack their gum in the middle of class, I literally hope you get a terrible sunburn, a million paper cuts, and then dunked in a pool of lemon juice

Where are all the cute redheads at?

NOT people who open containers of tree nuts in open places. Seriously, people are DEATHLY allergic to them. Not just if they eat them, but also if they have contact with their oils or she’ll them. If your hungry, open a bag of potato chips. Don’t put a whole population at risk.
