    BS...or NOT ?!?!? A little theory of mine

    I was fortunate to visit Lucasfilm at the old Presidio grounds a couple of moons ago, and I got this photo of the front door of ILM's original effects lab. At the time (pre-episode IV) ILM was named The Kerner Company. Presumably named after Kern County in California. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Kerner_(company)



    Now.... we all know the little text on the Jepack that is actually an anagram for KERN (RKEN)



    Why my fascination with this little useless factoid ? My last name is Kern, and I have been infatuated with the text since I saw it. There you go. Could be me and some wild conspiracy, or not.....

    Call me crazy, but I see it too! Maybe the "t" looking character is supposed to be an "R" and then the "K" is backwards, and the three dashes is an "E" and the last part is a lower-case "n"! So it's KERN jumbled around?

    Sounds like a very reasonable explanation to me. I see it too.

    INDEED !!!!! There is also some sort of beacon flash under the word "research"......

    OK - so my strict regiment of drugs and alcohol in the 90's is finally showing its effects.

    Wow! Both "Kern" and "door" have 4 letters. . . and "Boba" and "Fett" have 4 letters, too!!!!




    Just messin' with ya. Sounds like a plausible explanation for the symbols on the jet pack. We all know there are all sorts of little Easter eggs throughout the films.
