    What would make you turn?

    Anakin "allegedly" turns to the Darkside in order to save the life of his true love. We can look at that as a twist on the Crossroads story in which a guitar player sells his soul to the Devil in order to be the best.

    What would make YOU turn to the Darkside/sell your soul to the Devil? Everybody has a weakness. Everyone has a price. What's yours!?

    For me, I don't think it would be a situation where one minute I'm good and the next I'm evil. It would have to be a slow progression over weeks, months maybe even years. A situation where you've compromised one belief, then the another, and wake up one day and realize that you are living a life completely contrary to your core value system.

    So, I think the Dark Side could draw me in with pride. The idea that I'm the best at what I do and no one else can even compete. Basically, Palpatine would just keep complementing me and talking about how great and talented I am. That would keep me coming back, especially when living a virtuous life seemed to be producing no immediate rewards. We kind of saw Palpatine using this tactic with Anakin to some degree.

    Just my initial thoughts on the question.

    unlimited power.

    I'd turn in a second, but I'd like to naively think that I'd use the dark powers to try and do (at least some) good things. The moron driving 55 mph in the fast lane in front of me had better watch out though.

    I knew that was coming, but had no idea it would be so soon!

    I'd turn if they'd let me be Jessica Biel's underwear (the hot ones, not her "time o' the month" ones). I'd say, "if they'd grant me extra sexiness", but that's not possible.
    It's a blacked-out blur but I'm pretty sure it ruled.

    Wishing he was at SDCC. *sigh*
    Working for Wal-Mart has already turned me to the darkside. I see folks that I work with chatting with each other as I toil, and it makes me very angry. You know what anger did to ol' Anakin. Also, my son's mother. She was a 5 letter word that begins with B. The 4 years I dealt with her would be enough to turn any man to the "darkside".

    I don't have a price, I can't be bought. They can try but they will be severely unsuccessful.

    i don't see how selling your soul to the devil can be compared to joining the dark side. jedi seem more soulless than the sith. as for what would make me turn to the dark side, it would probably be for more power. not to mention, black robes are better than brown/tan ones.
