But this guy has me beat. Although, with the state of the Star Wars franchise these days (“Phantom Menace” anyone? Thought not), I’m not sure I would do this. Maybe for “The Empire Strikes Back”. Now that was a kick-ass movie.

And, regarding the deadly train wreck Wednesday here in LA (Glendale to be precise), the LA Times reports that the way that southbound commuter train was configured — a locomotive pushing passenger cars from the back, instead of pulling from the front — may have made matters worse. Not all engineers agree on this, however.

And, the Navy has posted some photos of the USS San Francisco, the submarine that went aground in the South Pacific where one sailor was killed. Amazing photos. Here’s a little background on the story as well.
