So John – who has the same birthday as me (only 5 years earlier); yay us! – found this video on Facebook and decided that sharing it and tagging the 3 most Star Wars-mad people he knew was a good idea.
The comment thread on his Fb wall ran like this…
Yuin: Ok, someone definitely had too much time on their hands. LOL
John: how can the shuttlecock not be sabered into half?
Yuin: More like, how did it not totally disintegrate the minute it made contact with a blade of blazing hot light?
The minute I hit the Enter button, geek mode set in and I had to add on – just for the heck of it. haha
Yuin: Ooh. Maybe it’s made of beskar – lightsaber-resistant iron. *geek mode*
John: i knew u had a better answer to star wars physics
Terry: like, but would have been better if Duel of The Fates was used as soundtrack. Beskar is so EU. Zillo beast armor more like it.
Jia Wern: You guys beat me to it. Commenting, I mean.
John: this is becoming too much. now regret
John should be glad I didn’t respond to Terry. I almost did, saying that EU is totally canon and beskar-gam is legitimate in the Star Wars universe. But I decided against it before I finished typing the sentence. I think that would’ve made him regret even more.
(I do, however, agree that the Duel of the Fates music should have been used instead. And the SFX should’ve been toned down a bit so the background music could actually be heard properly. haha).
