Star Wars Debate...


Hubby and I were sitting here watching all day marathon of the Star Wars movies...

We're to the scene where Han and Leia are hiding from Imperials in a cave on an asteroid...

Me:  Correct me if I'm Wrong but Asteroids, by definition have no atmosphere's correct?

John: Yes.

Me: So How come They can go outside of the Faclon with only poxy face masks on?

John: Shut Up.

Me: How can those Minox things live in there with no Atmosphere?

John: Shut Up.

Me: How can that Worm Thing Live on that asteroid with no Atmosphere and no food or water source?

John: Shut Up! Star Wars is like Religion. "How Did all Those Animals survive for 40 days on an Arc with only 8 people let alone get all the millions of species on it?" The Answer a priest gives you is "Shut up, have faith." This is Star Wars... You're not supposed to be Steven Hawking, you're just supposed to Shut up. In Religion it's Shut Up, God Did it. In Star wars, It's shut up Lucas Did it. There I explained it.

My mother's answer when I do this is usually, "Because they wrote it that way...now shut up." LOL

I love doing this to him, I mean he KNOW all this stuff too, but I still love pointing it out and irritating him. ;)

God I'm such a dork...

Jsut because that's what an asteroid is, doesn't mean that han knows it's an asteroid. XD Uhm.. however I Thiiiink, the Asteroid was so big that it managed to hold a very thin atmosphere... enough to not cause peopel to implode. The space slug (aka "exogorth") is a silicone based life form that actually eats rocks an the occasional mynock. MOST Exogorths actually are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay smaller then that one.. They produce enough heat and gas, as to make the asteroid's interior somewhat habitable, at least for a few minutes. (plus, they'd just come off of hoth. hoth be COLD!) The Mynocks, are also silicon based critters that have no need to breath. They're actually allergic to Helium, making most species incapable of living in an atmosphere... They feed on energy (electrical, stellar and electromagnetic)... so power cables and stuff are yummy.

So.. short answer: Not every critter in star wars needs Food/water/oxygen to live. :3

Oh and tha'ts hilarious BTW, but I"m a dooooooooork and wanted to share WHY XD

:) It was funny while we were "debating" too. :)

Okay that makes NO SENSE. SPACE is infinitely colder than hoth. Absolute ZERO. Animals, living beings without a rotational orbit or a gravitation pull cannot create an atmosphere. (I can hear john now... SHUT UP!)

That's pretty much about it XD It's a movie, it's how it is XD

But, dorkdorkdork, they were inside the animal's digestive tract. And Even if you took us and put us in space, we'd still have whatever was inside us at the time XD

Pretty much, it requuires a bit of suspension of disbelief... but...

if you stare hard enough at


You'll see what people have come up with to try and explain away George Lucas' lack of space-knowledge XD All of that stuff should be book-canon, if not movie cannon. :) (movie canon and book canon are differnet things. One's a lot more complete XD)

Oh my god, I've so got to visit in some imaginary future - he could get it in stereo! (People hate watching things with me, I can't resist picking at plot holes.)

It was long ago in a galaxy far far away. Clearly that galaxy and time played by different rules. The universe wasn't as cold as it is now as it hadn't expanded as far. Also, you have no idea what technology is in those face masks! Obviously they are pressurised. Possibly by the same people who make chainmail bikinis.

Star Wars is totally about space wizards, like Penny Arcade says. If you don't know, just blame midiclorians.

There is an explanation, but only R2D2 knows what it is. And for the good of the universe, he's not telling. But he knows. Oh yes, he knows.
