If the distance from the earth to the sun is measured as an Astronomical Unit (AU) and the distance from our solar system to the nearest star is called a Parsec (3.26 Light Years), then what is your favourite colour ~ Red or Purple...?

Red, of course, I don't like purple in the least. Once we had a sparkly purple t2000 2nd ugliest truck in the history of ugly trucks...

And why would they have measured the time to complete the Kessel Run in parsecs?

A parsec is the distance to an object for it to have a PARallax of one arcSECond (3.26 light years).

These things are ugly. Cool in a weird way, but still ugly.
