Aug 6 Word of the Day
A term coined by Terrson to represent a form of Jenga where one removes an article of clothing whenever the tower falls.
It was a fearsome sight indeed after the tower fell for the last time, after that, strip jenga was forever banned in the lounge.

<Terrson> My name shall not go down in history as the guy who codified Strip Jenga.
Guess again, Terrson.

The Jedi are a fictitious order of warrior monks who play an important role in the 'Star Wars' movie series by George Lucas. They were responsible for the maintenance of peace and order in the Galactic Republic, and were skilled in various mental disciplines from domination to psychokinesis. In addition to these powers, a Jedi novice was expected to construct his or her own lightsaber in order to qualify as a fully-fledged Jedi Knight.

The Jedi were most likely based on one of the real world's eastern religious traditions. Much of their symbolism has parallels in certain branches of Buddhism.

Trivia: Contrary to popular mythology, there is no officially-recognised Jedi religion. An Internet prank at the time of the 2001 UK Census informed citizens that if enough Census forms were received giving 'Jedi' as the religion, it would have to be recognised by the state. However, this was never the case, and the Jedi 'religion' remains entirely fictitious.
Singular: A Jedi, or a Jedi Knight.
Plural: A group of Jedi, or the Jedi Order as a whole.

A Jedi is a warrior in the Star Wars saga. They are people with exceptional skill, they can sense things that are happening/will happen, can move thing with their minds and have the ability to sometimes use 'mind tricks' on people to trick them. They wield light sabers, which are very light and elegant to use, unlike blasters.
Jedi are keepers of the peace, which means keeping the Force in balance. Before becoming a Master Jedi, they are trained as Padawan Learners, and then are taken as an apprentice by another Jedi. They learn from a young age and have rules to abide by.

A Jedi is the one who is on his path to understand the ways The Force. It is a one that rejects his emotions and follows only his mind. Jedis try to reach absolute balance with the world that surround them - they focus on understanding the ways of all things and use that knowledge to bring pease to those, who suffer. The Jedis understand, that true happiness is only possible when one completely controls his emotions and is sure that what he does or does not is exacly what he want and is suppose to do. A Jedi knows not hasitation or doubt, as his training gives him the skill to avoid mistakes in all forms of actions, be it combat, diplomacy, bartering, repairs or driving/piloting. But the truly important thing to remember abuot the Jedi is that what they do is learn all about the world surrounding them. Their power comes strictly from UNDERSTANDING, both the inanimate world and all the living creatures. They bieleive there is a way of all things to be, and their duty is to make all things go that way.
The Jedis form an Order of The Jedi. Young gifted children are taken into the Temple, where their training in the ways of the Froce begins. younglings are prepared to the role of Padawans. A Padawan is the student of the Force assigned to a mature Jedi Knight, which from now on is the Padawan's Master. The Padawan follows his master everywhere, and helps him on his tasks. This builds a strong relationship beetween the Master and the Student. During the journeys with his Master the Padawan takes several ritual tests - The test of courage, proving the Padawan can control his fear and act to the will of the Force even under stressful conditions, another tast that proves he can beat any opponent in combat, and the mst difficult - the test of Spirit, allowing the Padawan to look into himself and confront the worst of his own fears. Even after these test a Padawan is not automatically promoted to a Knight - the final decision is always in the hands of the Jedi Council. The Master can report whether he liked or disliked the way his young Apperentice passed through the tests, but it is the Council that decides. After the Council promotes a Padawan to a knight, the head of the council cuts the Padawan's hair (each padawan has a tail of hair behind his left ear). A Jedi knight then takes direct orders from the counsil and is trusted to perform missions. A Jedi Knight is a true Jedi. Most jedis met in the Galaxy are Jedi Knights.
The council may grant a Jedi knight another rank - the rank of a Jedi Master. This is done in respect to whatever the Jedi did in his career, or the promotion is simply proposed by the Force itself (or so the coucil says). A Jedi Master automatically becomes the member of the Jedi Council and from this day on his decicions affect the whole Order.
