Via Slate: Star Wars bloopers

Postby notxkcd » Tue Oct 29, 2013 1:14 am UTC

Anyone seen them as yet: http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2013/10/28/star_wars_blooper_reel_online_watch_original_movies_outtakes_video.html

Sigh. A reminder that these were just movies and not real life, but then again, the Universe is a big place. Actually, if you had a choice to make one movie, or movie franchise real, what would it be?

My top 3 (no particular order, not much thought given)

Star Wars (sans EP1, 2 and 3, LOL).
Back to The Future.
LoTR.

Star Wars happened for real exactly as portrayed in the movies (given an infinite multiverse).

In this Universe I forgot about the Multiverse (but in another Universe, I remembered!). :-)

Even a Level II would be sufficient. Level I would not on account of needing different physical constants.

Elysium. Because they have immortality tech and space travel, yet are sufficiently stupid that I should easily be able to seize control.

Ok. Let's say that somewhere in the infinite multiverse, there's a species of immortals who developed a tech that allows them to visit all times and places of all other universes. They went on to do just so, and spent their infinite lives to visit the infinite multiverse, so that eventually, ever planet, in every time in every universe where sentient life exists, gets visited. Why haven't we seen them yet?

Quantums are hard to diagnose and fix.
If you have a good shade tree quantum mechanic, keep it happy.
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.

We are all in The Gutter.
Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.
by mr. Oscar Wilde.

Those that want to Know; Know.
Those that do not Know; Don't tell them.
They do terrible things to people that Tell Them.
