So, it is down to you. And it is down to me. If you wish her dead, by all means keep moving forward. Let me explain… There’s nothing to explain. You’re trying to kidnap what I’ve rightfully stolen. Perhaps an arrangement can be reached. There will be no arrangement and you’re killing her! But if there can be no arrangement, then we are at an impasse. I’m afraid so — I can’t compete with you physically. And you’re no match for my brains. You’re that smart? Let me put it this way: have you ever heard of Plato, Aristotle, Socrates? Yes. Morons. Really? In that case, I challenge you to a battle of wits. For the Princess? To the death? I accept. Good. Then pour the wine. Inhale this, but do not touch. I smell nothing. What you do not smell is called Iocaine powder. It is odorless, tasteless, dissolves instantly in liquid, and is among the more deadlier poisons known to man. All right: where is the poison? The battle of wits has begun. It ends when you decide and we both drink, and find out who is right and who is dead. But it’s so simple. All I have to do is divine from what I know of you. Are you the sort of man who would put the poison into his own goblet, or his enemy’s? Now, a clever man would put the poison into his own goblet, because he would know that only a great fool would reach for what he was given. I’m not a great fool, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But you must have known I was not a great fool; you would have counted on it, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me. You’ve made your decision then? Not remotely. Because iocaine comes from Australia, as everyone knows. And Australia is entirely peopled with criminals. And criminals are used to having people not trust them, as you are not trusted by me. So I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. Truly, you have a dizzying intellect. Wait till I get going! Where was I? Australia. Yes — Australia, and you must have suspected I would have known the powder’s origin, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me. You’re just stalling now. You’d like to think that, wouldn’t you? You’ve beaten my giant, which means you’re exceptionally strong. So, you could have put the poison in your own goblet, trusting on your strength to save you. So I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But, you’ve also bested my Spaniard which means you must have studied. And in studying, you must have learned that man is mortal so you would have put the poison as far from yourself as possible, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me. You’re trying to trick me into giving away something — it won’t work — It has worked — you’ve given everything away — I know where the poison is! Then make your choice. I will! And I choose — what in the world can that be? What? Where? I don’t see anything. Oh, well, I-I could have sworn I saw something. No matter. What’s so funny? I’ll tell you in a minute. First, let’s drink — me from my glass, and you from yours. You guessed wrong. You only think I guessed wrong… that’s what’s so funny! I switched glasses when your back was turned. Ha-ha, you fool. You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is “Never get involved in a land war in Asia.” But only slightly less well known is this: “Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!Ahahahaha, ahahahaha, ahahaha– thud* Who are you? I am no one to be trifled with, that is all you ever need know. To think — all that time it was your cup that was poisoned. They were both poisoned. I spent the last few years building up an immunity to Iocaine powder. -Cade F.

Y’all got on this boat for different reasons, but y’all come to the same place. So now I’m asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything, I know this – they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, ten? They’ll swing back to the belief that they can make people…better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin’. I aim to misbehave.- Jamie Q.

Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you. It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life… He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself. – Ethan P.
