      Not sure on that, but I do know they hold the largest percentage of the Earth's
      fresh water. Somewher in the 10 to 15% range, I think.

      Lucas announced this AM that, the majority of the $4bil is going into a
      foundation to fund education.

      Especially since a Disney exec made it quite clear that the new movies won't
      come from any published book. Its not the first time, after "SW: A New Hope",
      Alan Dean Foster wrote a novel (Splinter of the Mind's Eye) that went best
      seller and sat on the NYT Bestseller list for almost 20 weeks, IRC. Then "SW:
      TESB" came out and basically blew away the whole book.

      Ford seems to be up for and still quite capable of action films. Indy was born
      in 1899 (that IS canon, from the Young Indy series), that means, if they stick
      to Indy being close to Ford's age, the film would be set in the late 1950s/early
