why do they call them tie fighters

Some were destroyed before entering the caves and the remainder during the cave-chase sequence. When the Falcon leaves the battlefield it's noted that every single TIE-fighter went with them. Poe: She drew 'em off. All of them!! A few seconds later we see at least 9 (of the remaining 14(ish) TIE-fighters that were seen a few minutes ago) chasing the Falcon. Rey splashes at least one with the cannon and there's the sound of a second explosion. They then enter the cave. One TIE hits an outcropping, another hits a stalagmite, two more hit the cave walls as they narrow and the final two that were chasing them aren't seen emerging from the cave wall that the Falcon broke through. The cannon appears to be broken so at this point (sparking and non-functional) so it's a reasonable guess that all

 why do people fight and hurt each other

why do people fight and hurt each other

The one thing I just don't get about people is why they will sometimes go out of their way to hurt one another. Spending your time, energy, and money to make someone else uncomfortable is just plain sadistic, as well as a waste of the most valuable thing you have-the precious minutes of your life. Unfortunately, we see this a lot in broken relationships. Some people make going after their ex for anything and everything a passionate hobby. I cannot count the number of people who have, years later, regretted this behavior. And there is good reason. In many cases, this kind of negative energy pushes away other people, including children if they are involved. When children (adult children as well) see one parent trying to hurt the other, they not only get protective of the person under

 why should we not change the new zealand flag

why should we not change the new zealand flag

Whether we like it or not, the flag referendum is now upon us, forcing us to rank the five shortlisted alternatives from best-of-a-bad-bunch to worst. A distracting non-issue that has overstayed its welcome, the flag debate wonБt be over until March 2016 when the second referendum has been completed. Approximately 27 million dollars later. IБm quite obviously opposed to changing our flag. My favouring of the traditional Union Jack and Southern Cross hybrid wasnБt a consciously made decision, but a gut instinct strongly felt from the moment the question was raised. БShall we change the New Zealand flag? Б the Prime Minister asked. БNo,Б my heart said, loudly, before my brain had a chance to interfere. As it turned out, my mind and my emotions agreed. Why would we change the very fabric

 why do soccer goalies wear different uniforms

why do soccer goalies wear different uniforms

Goalkeepers are the only players on the soccer field who get to use their hands without incurring a penalty. They even wear different uniforms than the rest of the players. This enables them to stand out to other players and officials and to protect themselves from injuries. The requirements for soccer uniforms are set by FIFA, the governing body of the sport. FIFA's Laws of the Game require all players, including goalies, to wear a jersey or shirt, shorts, socks, shin guards and footwear. Players are allowed to wear undershirts and undershorts, but they must be the same color as the outer garments. In addition to the basic uniform rules, goalkeepers must wear a jersey with colors that are different and distinguishable from those worn by both teams and the referees. This rule allows

 why does the circulatory system need the respiratory system

why does the circulatory system need the respiratory system

By Nick C. and Kelsey F. Q: How does the Respiratory System relate to other systems in the human body? A: All of the other 5 major systems help the respiratory system work at its best. The systems include the digestive system, skeletal system, circulatory system, muscular system, and finally the nervous system. The well-known digestive system has a basic but important function. First, food goes down to the throat, and leads to the digestive system. What makes this path is the epiglottis, which opens when air comes through, and closes when food comes down. The digestive system breaks down food into simpler substances that the body can use including proteins. This helps the respiratory system because the lungs need nutrients. The respiratory system helps the digestive system by giving

On September 21, 1780, Revolutionary War hero Benedict Arnold turned his back on his country in a secret meeting with a top British official.

 why do my underarms stink so bad

why do my underarms stink so bad

This kind of helped me. First it's good to have a change in diet. Cutting out dairy and meat as much as possible. Next incorporating more vegetables helped some. I then tried a product from Renew Life, called Intestinew powder (and pills). I tried the powder. I didn't notice a great change when I did all these but it was a start. I tried not stressing, (which can be difficult, and I also prayed). Watching things on tv/internet that make you laugh is a positive in healing your insides I think. Then I tried several things including lemon juice, baking soda, garlic and organic apple cider vinegar (not all at once). I tried baking soda with lemon juice (1 spoonful in water each, about 15-30 min. apart) first and I didn't notice any great results. I then tried, smashing/cutting 1 good size
