If there’s one thing Star Wars fans do, it’s argue. Who could win in a fight, Darth Vader or Darth Maul? Who’s stronger, Boba Fett or IG-88? Who wore it better, Princess Leia or R2-D2?
They could go on and on across the galaxy — and by galaxy, we mean internet.
But there’s one argument that needs to be put to rest: Are Daisy Ridley from Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Felicity Jones from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story the same person?
Appearing MTV After Hours, Felicity Jones shot a quick PSA as to why these two brown-haired, British women are not the same person, despite what you may have heard. She also throws out a pretty solid spoiler for any annoying fan conspiracy theorists out there.

Look, it's been proven time and time agan: Listen to your girlfriends. It's really easy. If you listen to them, gross things won't happen. If you don't listen to them a bunch of gross stuff explodes in your face and she writes about it on Twitter.
No one wants that
That’s the story of Twitter user Sarah Gailey, who politely asked her boyfriend not to touch a small plastic egg. What was the outcome? Well, they broke up, she wrote about it on Twitter, and he’s embarrassed. Don't be that guy. Listen to your girlfriends.

Game of the Day: Lebron James and the Cavs Got Tired of Winning So They Started Flipping Bottles
We’ve all been there. When you’re being paid a couple million dollars to play a ball game, but you’re winning so hard that you get bored and start flipping bottles.
Well, maybe that’s just a LeBron James thing.
Last night, while the Cleveland Cavaliers were blowing out the New York Knicks, Lebron James got tired of watching his team destroy and started flipping bottles with his teammates on the sidelines. Sure, this may not have been the appropriate time, and, hey, it might’ve been totally disrespectful to the other team and their fans and his fans and basketball and sportsmanship, but whatever flipping bottles is fun.
Twitter loved it, by the way, as its kind of hard not to. Check out the best reactions.
“Wow. What an awful year 2016 has been," says everyone always. Everyone except the celebrities, YouTube Stars, and living memes of YouTube’s 2016 Rewind.
This is a packed event filled with references to everything that happened this year, except the really, really bad stuff. Well, there's a reference to Bowie passing, but that's it. It's all good times from here on out. Let’s see what we’ve got here:
Look if your video went viral last year and you’re not in this thing, it’s time to get a new agent. Yeah, I’m talking to you, Misha. Where you at? 45-million views. WHERE YOU AT?
Like everything on YouTube, it’s a real mix of things that are annoying, entertaining, ridiculously cheery, and downright confusing. But that’s what the internet is about, and honestly, it’s better than the other half of the internet, which is startlingly depressing.
Silent night. Holy night. Artificial Intelligence, right? Sort of.
Look, we all know that eventually artificial intelligence will replace humanity. There’s nothing we can do to stop that. But it would seem that researchers at the University of Toronto are looking to speed things along.
Inverse reports that in a test to see how well A.I. could master the feeling the of holiday cheer and yuletide sentiment, the researchers forced a computer program to look at a picture of a Christmas tree and write a song about it. Not only are they proving that A.I. can write songs — which explains Coldplay — but also that it can capture the feelings associated with the holidays, decidedly human feelings.
Well sort of. The lyrics don’t instill a lot of faith in our new A.I. overlords:
“Lots to decorate the room/The Christmas tree is filled with flowers.
I swear it is Christmas Eve/I hope that is what you say.
The Best Christmas present in the world is a blessing/
I’ve always been there for the rest of our lives.
A hundred and a half hour ago/ I’m glad to meet you.
I can hear the music coming from the hall/ A fair tale
A Christmas tree. There are lots and lots and lots of flowers.”
Of course this could be code, which we will only decipher until after it’s too late, especially the cryptic line “I’ve always been there for the rest of our lives.” In fact, what we’re probably hearing here is not a Christmas song, but some sort of National Anthem for the United States of Artificial Intelligence.
We are in so much trouble.
With less than 20 days until Christmas, people are flooding 5th Avenue in New York to get a glimpse at their legendary holiday window displays.
It happens every year, and every year you have to push through a warm tourists screaming at each other. It's as if these families don't actually want to come to this thing because they spend the whole time screaming at each other. It's very unpleasant. Thankfully, like most things, technology is here to save us from spending time with other people.
You don’t want this to happen again, do you?
Of course not, which is why Google came up with Window Wonderland.
With Window Wonderland, Google allows you to take a virtual tour through the window displays. Finally, you have the chance to actually enjoy the streets of New York without getting splashed with mud by a passing cab. You can choose the experience, either let your mouse do the walking or put your phone three inches from your face and enjoy the VR experience. You can check out the South Park characters at Barney's or the dolls over at the American Girl store. It's really however you like celebrating the holidays.
