Glow Sticks (5, Interesting)

Rolyat69 (838367) | more than 9 years ago | (#12623510)

Why oh why didn't they just use Glow Sticks? [howstuffworks.com] Here is a nice article on how they work. Crack them, cut them open, and dump into some sort of clear plastic tubing and seal. From what I understand, Glow Sticks are nontoxic and come in nifty colors! I guess the force just isn't that strong with them. :)

Why not just pack the tubes with radioactive material and heavy water? Or Radium and Zinc Sulfide for that retro-look Undark [roger-russell.com] glow? (Risk doesn't seem to be a problem for them.)

Obsession with All Things "Star Wars" (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 9 years ago | (#12623756)

The obsession with "Star Wars" is a good sign for Western society because it indicates our current moral compass. What does this obsession indicate?

We are still committed to moral clarity [phrusa.org] . We support democracy. We believe in protecting the weak and the downtrodden. These themes appear across the entire "Star Wars" saga.

In other parts of the globe, "Star Wars" is popular for different reasons. For example, in Hong Kong, many people enjoy watching "Star Wars" primarily because the fights in the film are intense. The blood and the gore appeals to the Chinese audience. The theme of compassion is lost among the Hong-Kong supporters of the Chinese occupation of Tibet.

The other day I was talking to someone that couldn't tell me whether the end on what ended up being his ethernet cord was metal or plastic.

Even after he told me he could see the wires inside - He still thought it looked like a metal end to him.

LIGHT-SABRE DUEL PUTS TWO IN HOSPITAL TWO Star Wars fans are in a critical condition in hospital after duelling with lightsabres made by filling fluorescent light tubes with petrol. The pair - a man aged 20 and a girl of 17 - are believed to have been filming a mock fight when one of the devices exploded in woodland on Sunday. They were rushed to West Herts Hospital before being transferred to the specialist burns unit at Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford, in Essex. Police say a third person present at the incident was questioned.

Talk about doing it the hard way! (5, Interesting)

BandwidthHog (257320) | more than 9 years ago | (#12623550)

The bitch of it is that in my high school electronics class, when we covered Tesla Coils and Van de Graff Generators, our teacher showed us how to have a light saber fight by holding a flourescent tube in one hand and the center tap of a Tesla Coil in the other. Sure, you've gotta be careful not to break the thin glass tube, but at least the results aren't quite so nasty if you do. Probably looks more convincing as well.

And if you work it right, it also gives you the ability to do the ever popular Jedi trick of throwing someone across the room with the open palm of your hand.

High voltage beats high temperature any day of the week.

Re:Talk about doing it the hard way! (2, Interesting)

Fluorescent light tubes?! (5, Funny)

TomorrowPlusX (571956) | more than 9 years ago | (#12623612)

OK, sure, I've had some fun with pyrotechnics. My father -- being a machinist -- had welding equipment, so he and I would fill balloons with mapp gas and oxygen and would shoot them with burning bolts from a home-made crossbow. Good times. Not to mention my blacksmith uncle who would, on the fourth of july, take a special anvil he'd hollowed out the bottom of and fill the hollow with gunpowder. You can imagine the fun. Again, good times.

But, come on. Fluorescent light tubes?! You would have to be some sort of catastrophically stupid person to not realize how fragile those tubes are. I mean, for christ's sake! Filling a fragile glass tube with a burning liquid and then hitting things with it! Oh my god. If you *have* to do this, and obviously, you do because it's cool and fun, at least put some thought behind the mechanics.

The only thing I can really think about all this is that, somewhere, modern culture isn't teaching people important, basic, rules about material properties.

On a side note, I previously associated this kind of behavior with my fellow Americans. We're a stupid, raucous bunch. I'm glad to open my arms to the UK, I welcome you to our stupid bosom. May you whittle your gene pool alongside us.
