Trust the Force, Luke.

I saw Photonic Molecules open for the Mothers of Invention

Trying to figure out how to add this to my Amazon wishlist..

Never mind the electronics. If I'm driving in Florida, I want one of those huge Sandcrawlers. (In the left lane, with the blinker on.)

I read an article a few years ago about how terrible a lightsaber would be in real life. The slightest mistake and there goes your hand. You clash sabers with another idiot and the bounceback bisects both your heads.

Stick with the blasters. Any dime-store blaster can easily penetrate stormtrooper "armor."

I think the Harvard, MIT physics people who created the real lightsabre are the same people who can't make a car that runs more than 60 miles on anything but gasoline.

FredKey: A blaster is the weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or random as a blaster; an elegant weapon for a more civilized age. For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times... before the Empire.

This, and still no flying car.

I'm with Clankie on this one.

Flying cars are overrated. Take a look at the traffic reports during the commuting hours next week, and think about all of those clowns flying over your house. I'm ok with not having flying cars.

But... they promised.


MwWAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

FredKey, I think the idea in Star Wars is that anyone could use a lightsaber but it's only those trained in the use of The Force who could avoid self-dismemberment.

I mentioned this way back on Friday...

Well I did...
