Belfast College First in UK To Offer Jedi Course

Not really a gadget or technology but how could I resist posting this latest Star Wars related news?

Queen’s University, Belfast, Northern Ireland is offering a really real course in the Jedi way!

Read on for more details if you don’t believe me.

According to its publicity material, the course, Feel the Force: How to Train in the Jedi Way, teaches the real-life psychological techniques behind Jedi mind tricks.

It also claims to examine the wider issues behind the Star Wars universe, like balance, destiny, dualism, fatherhood and fascism.

The university says it hopes to attract young Star Wars fans and introduce them to education through open learning………so free iPods aren’t working then?

No prior qualifications are required and you have to provide your own lightsaber.

Sounds like a giggle to me and probably a more relevant qualification than anything gained at Art College!
