On the anniversary of President Donald Trump’s first year in office, men and women across the country took to the streets to protest. And if their protest signs are anything to go by, they carried The Force — yes, the Jedi Force — with them.

The government shutdown, the protection of Dreamers, the #MeToo movement, and the upcoming midterm elections were all serious issues that inspired protestors to get out and march, and for some protestors, the language and images of the Star Wars resistance fit in perfectly to sum up their real-world resistance.

Perhaps this is no surprise, given the feminist undertones of The Last Jedi, the film’s unprecedented inclusivity of characters of color that are as complex as white counterparts, as well as the late Carrie Fisher’s status as a feminist icon. With all of that as background, “A woman’s place is in the resistance!” and #RebelScum became battle-cries at this year’s march.

Sometimes, it was a direct quote from the film that inspired protestors: “That’s how we’re gonna win. Not fighting what we hate, but saving what we love.”

At other times, it was Princess Leia herself that protestors looked up to, with her image serving as a symbol of strength:

While others reminded marchers that the princess also got involved in politics to effect change (referring, perhaps, to the record number of women that have run for office since Trump’s election?)

In real life, as in the beloved Star Wars franchise, the exciting moments of action - whether it’s space battles with the empire or protests in the streets - need to be sustained by continued action.

At the end of The Last Jedi, there is a moment when, aboard the Millennium Falcon after another escape, Rey asks Leia, “How do we build the rebellion from this?”

Leia responds with a loving smile and conviction: “We have everything we need.”

The turnout and the energy at the Women’s March 2018 shows that the resistance, in real life, also has everything that it needs.

The most fun thing about betting on sports — besides winning in the final seconds — is placing a prop bet. There’s nothing a weird and wild wager to take the edge off a more serious, analytical prediction. Regular gambling enthusiasts will often describe prop bets as having “juiced” odds, in that they are long — too long, some say — to be worth it. Sure, proposition bets have longer odds, but the payouts are higher, making them enticing to both bettors and bookies.

Netflix is going all-in on spooky shows and movies this October with “Netflix and Chills,” and it’ll include both its own original programming and tons of horror, new and old.

Our carefully curated list focuses on the absolute best films that’ll be available, with a heavy focus on zombies, ghosts, demons, and even a few brand new monsters. You’ll also get a mix of modern stories, along with some set in centuries past. (Also, this is just movies, but stay tuned for a Halloween TV special guide coming later this month from Inverse.)

Sous Vide cooking is intimidating: It involves high-tech equipment, often requires at least one other type of cooking in order to prepare an edible meal, and, worst of all, it has a fancypants french name that, for all I know, could mean “rat poop buffet”. Anyway, it’s great.

The idea behind sous vide cooking is this: You put whatever you want to cook (steak, fish, vegetables, you name it) into a sealed bag in a pan full of water set to a desperately precise temperature, thus cooking the food evenly and entirely, and not a minute too long or a degree too hot or cold.

The internet loves certain things without question: dogs, yodeling kids and memes. But perhaps the most cherished internet fodder are unsolved mysteries. Long after police and private investigators shelve cold cases, real-life murder cases live online for decades, meticulously pored over by Redditors and Facebook-moms alike.

They become especially popular if some curious conspiracy theorist is able to upload photo “evidence” or eyewitness accounts. Sometimes evidence that a jury might take as sufficient cause to convict a killer doesn’t quite satisfy online researchers, and conspiracy theorists will hold tight to creepy, unexplained details, falling deeper down a rabbit hole of independent investigation.
