Hello, what have we here?

Based on the approximately ten billion emails we’ve received about this into tips@abovethelaw.com in the last few hours, it seems a lot of you already know that the “Star Wars kid” has decided to attend law school. We think the first Kamino-like flood of emails linked to the story on TechCrunch:

It was eight years ago that Ghyslain Raza slashed his way into our hearts with his Star Wars Kid video. Sadly, Raza suffered from severe bullying and abuse for his video and eventually ended up in a psychiatric ward for children…

He and his family sued the kids who leaked the video for $250,000, settled, and that seemed to be the end of it. Now, however, Ghyslain just became the president of the Patrimoine Trois-Rivières, a heritage society dedicated to conserving his hometown in Quebec. He’s also working on law degree at McGill in Montreal.

I have a bad feeling about this. But clearly escape from McGill is not his plan. Raza must face his demons, alone.

In case you don’t remember Star Wars kid: A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away….

…. a kid made a Jedi training video of himself that went viral on YouTube:

My own counsel will I keep on who is to be legally trained. But, search your feelings, what advice would you give to Raza? I sense pain, terrible pain, for young Raza; credit from his settlement won’t work for paying off law school debts, only money.

But you never know — with his background, Raza could become so powerful that the only thing he’s afraid of is losing his power. From a certain point of view, Raza cannot escape his destiny.

P.S. Yes, I hit all six movies in this post. You all stand witness to the power of this fully operational battle station.
