There are few people more dedicated and forgiving than Star Wars fans. No matter how bad the movies get or how much money they waste, the fans always return to Degobah to continue to their training.
Meet Kevin Hill, an artist Rotherham, England, who in 2006 decided to build a scale model of Han Solo’s ship, the Millennium Falcon, from scratch. The process would take 10 years to complete, but get this, he decided to do this after the prequels had been released.
Hill made the model for a friends sci-fi convention, thinking at the time that the last Star Wars movie would be Revenge of the Sith, and yet, he persevered. After all, no one knew that their were more movies coming at the time.

The model is 1:18 scale model, which is 6-feet long and 4-feet wide, and weighs 168 pounds. Started when he was 35, the model took a decade to finish, meaning a 35-year-old may have seen the three prequels and still went ahead with the project.
To his credit, he doesn’t even care that much about Star Wars, so the fact that the prequels are terrible probably didn’t even matter much to him.
“I'm not a massive Star War fan — I don't collect anything — but I just love Sci-fi movies,” he said.

According to The Daily Mail, “The surface detail mainly comprises model-kit parts, space toy parts and other random salvaged items. The larger structural details such as cockpit and radar dish are vacuum formed using MDF moulds and he has used LED lights for the cockpit and thruster lights. Such is the level of detail he has added scars to the paintwork to demonstrate weathering.”
The model is quite impressive, almost as impressive as his desire to complete in spite of the world’s reaction to the prequel trilogy. Hill’s Millennium Falcon is set to sell at auction for about $7,600 to a world ready to love Star Wars again.
Check out the model below. It’s even more impressive knowing that this man may have seen the prequels and still went through with this:
In many ways, everyone on the planet would like to never hear the name Harambe again. We get it, ok? Dudes on Reddit think the gorilla getting shot is very funny. The joke is played.
But almost by divine providence, if you will, someone found a new way into the joke.
Reddit user agc4 is now the founder and first member of the Church of Latter Day Harambe, a new holy community that just received approval from the IRS.
As of now, we only have a letter addressed to the founder and not much more information on how to join the church because apparently the founder "lost" the letter. Not a great sign for the new religion.
Everyone agrees: The most important part of the wedding is the hashtag.
You could have the right dress, cake, and DJ, but if your hashtag fails to inspire and delight your guests, guess what, no one had a good time. The hashtag lives on long after the music ends and leaves an indelible print on your pictures. It’s the first thing that guests ask for and the last thing they forget.
So why would you leave the hashtag up to the amateurs?
Gunning for the title of most millennial job of 2016, Marielle Wakim, a Los Angeles-based magazine editor, is offering personalized wedding for a low, low price. “Happily Ever #Hashtagged,” Wakim’s business offers hashtags, charging $40 for one and $115 for three options. She’s also willing to tag bachelor and bachelorette parties.
Recently, Wakim’s wedding hashtags were featured on Good Morning America, where John Legend didn’t seem too impressed by them. Although, we’re in agreement, the one she wrote for George and Amal Clooney, “AmalYourGeorge,” was pretty solid.
For more on Wakim, check out her interview in Mashable or simply call her because you don’t want your special day to be ruined, do you?

We’re about a month out from the election and the transition into a country run by a billionaire reality TV game show host has not been, uh, smooth. When he’s not Tweeting about SNL, making casual calls to Taiwan, or lying about voter fraud, Trump has been disappointing some of his biggest supporters. For the majority of the country, over 65 million voters, who did not vote for Trump, this would be the chance to say “I told you so,” but we’re all in this together now, and, hoo, boy, we better start getting along.
Still, that doesn’t mean the popular voters can’t have a little fun. So in the spirt of “I told you so,” here comes Trumgrets, a running tumblr of people regretting their vote last month. Not much to it than that, but just like the buyer’s remorse here, you get what you paid for.
Every piece of technology seemingly promises the same thing: Live your life with greater ease and efficiency. However, technology can’t solve the problem of people standing in your way patiently waiting their turn to pay for something.
Or so we think.
Amazon is promising something big with their new product: The end of lines at the grocery store.
With Amazon Go, the shopping giant says that you’ll be able to create a digital list on your phone, scan your phone at the market, and just walk in, grab your items, and leave.
Of course, this type of thing raises a million questions, like ones about the company becoming another piece of the horrific dystopian nightmare that our future is rapidly turning.
Check out what people are saying about Amazon Go.
When you’re Shia LaBeouf, the provactive star of a bunch of movies with big fighting robots, you like to start beef.
Whether you’re wearing a bag on your head in the name of art or you’re ripping off a Daniel Clowes comic for your short film, if you’re Shia LaBeouf, you want to push buttons.
But some buttons should not be pushed, as the real Shia has recently learned.
According to Uproxx, “The rift between the two originates from a new freestyle by LaBeouf premiered on The Breakfast Club by Charlamagne Tha God. On the track, the Transformers star namechecks several different hip-hop figures ranging from Drake and Jean-Claude Van Damme to Lil Yachty and Peter Rosenberg, who LaBeouf rhymed with “frozen turd” in a stroke of genius.”
One person who did not find it to be a particular stroke of genius was Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy, who took to Instagram over the verse.
“Shia, you a b*tch *ss n****, you could never come to Atlanta, you could never come to the streets in the hood. You could never live my life, you need to stick to acting, real shit n****. This rap shit ain’t for you n****, for real have some n**** pull up on you, f*ck Shia LaBeouf n****, f*ck you talking about keep my name out your mouth, you don’t want no beef, on my mama. You better stick to acting n**** cause this sh*t get real.”
The message is clear, Shia: Stay out of Atlanta.
A good bed is hard to come by apparently.
While riding the Sling Shot ride Six Flags Mexico in Mexico City, 15-year-old Daniel Barron Melendez passed four times for up to three seconds at a clip. Get your sleep where you can.
In the video, you can see Daniel’s eyes glaze over and roll back into his head, while the other rider enjoys the ride. Daniel not only passes out during the ride, but in between cat naps, he looks like he’s in physical pain.
According to The Daily Mail, this might have been just another chance for Daniel to meet single ladies.
“Local media reports suggested the teenager may have been trying to impress his friend by going on the ride. Daniel has started getting dating requests on social media from female admirers after posting the video.”
We’ll keep you updated on whether or not Daniel gets a girlfriend through this as this story develops.
