I'm not exactly what one would label a "Star Wars Fan." However, I am positively obsessed with learning how to work the Jedi Mind Trick. Imagine how much more interesting life would be if you could change the whims of those around you.
A beautiful day in July could easily be made better by waving your hand before your boss' face and saying "you want to let us all go home early."
No more would long lines plague you at the local mini-mart or movie theater - a simple flick of the wrist and all those in front would suddenly decide to take up a new hobby or water sport.
And this power would certainly come in handy when arguing with one's spouse. *a gentle wave* "You yearn to buy me diamonds. Big ones. Oh! And a Rolex... and a tennis bracelet and..."
Then again - this could be considered an abuse of the Jedi ways and we all know that "Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering."
Then again, again - the dark side IS tempting and black is VERY slimming...
