    Yeah, I don't want to spoil anything for you, but there's just a bit of light saber action in this film.

    Why is this forum, and the news, full of stupid British kids at the moment? Can't be because schools finished is it?

    Do these kinds of morons even go to school? :rolleyes:
    I blame post-election lack of news so journos are off looking for silly season stories early. This one has to be one of the most stupid yet although I think the Passion Pants in Asda is my current favourite of the silly stories.

    When I skim the AP odd news it seems that every other one is someone in central Pennsylvania.

    Two Hurt in Mock Lightsabre Battle

    Apparently the force nor common sense was with them. Or as Yoda would put it: Found stupidity you have I would say.

    Hemel Hempstead. Says it all, really... at least it was an original (if counterproductive) use of their time. If I lived there, I'd probably be looking toward hallucinogenic drugs to stem the consummate boredom.

    I agree that it was very stupid. Sometimes the young just don't think, but this happened to be a serious mistake with almost fatal consequences. My prayers are with 17-year-old girl and a 20-year-old man, may they have a full recovery. May the families and friends be comforted.

    one word: duhhhhh!

    i thought the reason tescos sells offical starwars toy lightsabers was to prevent that kind of stupidity!

    but i suppose if they had them, they would probably fill them with petrol too!

    ... pyromaniacs

    This should worry George Lucas. He could be looking at a multi-millionaire dollar lawsuit.
