SW geekery  
Weird thought of the day, brought to you by a rambling Star Wars thread on the SM Stirling list colliding with the bits of Empire Strikes Back that shelleycat and i were watching on sunday.

There is a clear (though deranged) logical progression from Yoda's "do or do not, there is no try," to Darth Vader. An admiral in the Imperial fleet either succeeds in following whatever orders Darth Vader has given them, or they get force-choked on the spot, it doesn't matter how hard they did or didn't try to carry out the orders.

Which makes you wonder if Yoda ever told that bit of "wisdom" to Anakin back in the day? :) I don't _think_ the quote ever came up during the prequel movies...

(Yes, i know, the icon needs work =P)
