yodapicforic.jpgFancy yourself a Jedi? In the UK, long the home of pioneering Jedi religious beliefs since Welsh brothers founded an official Jedi church last year, now finally there’s a Jedi course at Queen’s University, Belfast to teach you all those handy Jedi mind tricks that will help you to win friends, influence people and convince storm troopers that those aren’t the droids they’re looking for:

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.” No prior qualifications are required and the blurb informs students that “light sabres are not provided”.

The article lacks additional details, but Idol Chatter heard that course fees may also include a Jedi robe, a blast shield, and tauntaun riding lessons, and that the instructor will be a small green Muppet who speaks backwards. After class bar nights to be held at Mos Eisley Spaceport, where you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy, but which apparently has awesome drink specials after 5pm.
Are you a Jedi student? Idol Chatter wants to hear from you: you can contact us via email, by commenting below, or via droid hologram.
