The Beeb has the following charming tale of wit and insight:
Apparently two youths of great wisdom decided to film a fan-flick based on Star Wars.
Not all that unusual in this day-and-age, but to add the well-known and quite distinctive light-saber effects, they decided to fill fluorescent tubes with petrol and then light it. Said light-sabers — most obviously — promptly exploded. Something I’m fairly certain a well-designed light-saber should never do.
Must have made a hell of a scene, though. Hope somebody remembered to keep the film going. The show must go on, and all that, old chap.
Damn fools. Apparently never heard of Industrial Light & Magic, the people who create the “Special Effects” (aka. Not petrol in tubes) after the filming of the movies are done.
And then the Yanks say that Darwin’s theories were were bunk?
Hello, people. Wake up: this is Evolution in action…
