Photos: May the 4th be with you this Star Wars Day!

It's Star Wars Day, so May the 4th be with you -- and no, we're not lisping. We swear.

To celebrate this annual excuse to shift into hyperdrive, we've assembled a slew of photos from our friends on Flickr that capture the pervasive cultural influence the Star Wars films (at least the first three) have had over the past three decades-plus. Geek out below.
