Romanians open Jedi Academy

Or 'Academiei Jedi' as it's known locally

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Count Dracula had better watch his back - the Romanians have opened a Jedi Academy and it can only be a matter of time before graduates are working their way through Transylvania at weekends, smiting the undead with their light sabres, between bouts of trading collectibles and arguing as to whether The Phantom Menace was merely the worst Star Wars film or actually the worst film ever made.

The academy is apparently the brainchild of Adrian Pavel, one of the founders of Romania's Star Wars Club — which now numbers 1,000 members and encompasses journalists, doctors, management, academics, lawyers and even politicians.

We say apparently, because this announcement is from Romanian tabloid Libertatea which is printed in, well, Romanian - as is the local custom.

We're pretty certain, though, that wannabe Jedis have to complete a 100-poser questionnaire in 24 hours in order to gain entry to the academy. Readers who fancy brushing upon their Romanian, flexing their Star Wars trivia muscles and then proving themselves in the eternal struggle between good and evil can register here. ®
