Nerd tsunami engulfs Indianapolis

This year’s Star Wars convention is underway, as evidenced by the fact that there are around 20,000 hotel rooms in Indianapolis that have had the nightstand bibles replaced with a photocopy of the room service breakfast order of George Lucas.

Yes, Lucas, the creator of the Star Wars series, is finally appearing at one of these conventions for the first time since 1987. This, coincidentally, is when some of these people started getting in line for “Episode III: Revenge of the Sith” which will be released in mid May this year.

Hopefully, for the environmentally conscious Indianapolis, those cheap plastic light sabers and Stormtrooper masks that will be left behind are recyclable.
