The goddamned George Lucas! Now we have to feel bad when we curse him for making Han shoot first!

That George Lucas sure is a dick. He edits the original Star Wars movies whenever he gets a chance and refuses to release the unedited original trilogy on Blu Ray. He made the prequels. He created midichlorians. And Jar Jar Binks. He made Indiana Jones 4. With Shia LaDouche.
Except... he's also a pretty cool dude. I mean, he created Star Wars and Indiana Jones in the first place, which is pretty cool. And then, after selling it and his company, Lucasfilm, to Disney for $4 billion, he pledged to donate all of the profits to charity. The donation continues a pledge made by Lucas in 2010, which said:
I am dedicating the majority of my wealth to improving education. It is the key to the survival of the human race. We have to plan for our collective future—and the first step begins with social, emotional, and intellectual tools we provide to our children. As humans, our greatest tool for survival is our ability to think and to adapt—as educators, storytellers, and communicators our responsibility is to continue to do so.
Is Lucas dying? Is he just so rich that it doesn't matter? Is he thinking about his legacy? Or does he just really, honestly care about people and want to help the country and the human race?
Nah. Remember Jar Jar Binks. Never forget!
