My nerdy mind has been blown.

While visiting Colorado last week, my little brother Ian informed me of something that BLEW my nerdy mind. How do most people ignorantly pronounce our last name when they first read it? "For-sith". There are two words in the pronunciation: "Force" and "Sith." Wait...that's nothing. It gets better.

My parents had only 4 sons. Their given first names are:
Jonathan
Eric
Daniel
Ian

J, E, D, I.

This is not a joke, nor, i believe a coincidence. My parents are sleeper Jedi...from Sith ancestry? Much to think about I have. Thank you master, Ian.

Thank you, Eric! I would have never realized what is so now plain and obvious. I always knew growing up that I had more medichlorians than my friends.
-Jonathan
