The New Question

Wand or Saber

Too much is made of Star Wars vs. Star Trek. That question, however, has been around for decades. Almost as long as The Professor has been professering. I think it’s time for a new question. One that moves us into the 21st century of sci-fi/fantasy. “Star Wars or Harry Potter? Wand or light saber?” Personally, I can’t choose.

    I prefer a poorly told story in a well constructed universe to a well told story in a poorly constructed universe.

    This is a question? Light saber. No contest.

  • Renchick

    I dunno – a light saber is a cutting tool only. The wand has a lot of potential.

    • Exactly. Try clearing a fogbank from the battlefield with one of those and see how far you get.

    The Question Remains , If a Chicken and a half Can Lay an Egg and a half In a day and a Half. How long does it take for a Bull frog with Wooden Leg to kick the seeds from a Dill Pickle?

      Related and often applies at work:
      "Just because getting a woman pregnant can get you a baby in 9 months,
      doesn't mean that getting 9 women pregnant will get you a baby in one month."

      I.e.: no, putting more people on this task will NOT speed it up, you dolts!

        Your work involves knocking up 9 women?

        I didn't realize any NBA players hung out here.

    Piss off; we're Artemis Fowl fans here.

    With a good wand you can make up all the light sabers you want.

  • My girlf has pointed out that a Hitachi Magic Wand is preferable by far to a Hitachi Light Saber. I haven't questioned her further on this point.

    Wand. It took some convincing to get me to read the first Harry Potter book, but once I started I couldn't wait for more. I read every book again before a new one came out, and watched all of the movies again last week.

    I've watched watched every Star Wars movie once. No desire to watch them again. I have played a few Star Wars games, though.

    • Didn't you used to have an avatar? A barnstorming era pilot or someone? Hugh Laurie in a ushanka?

      • Dean Bigglesworth

        ´twas James Bigglesworth, a pilot in a book series published from 1932 to 1968. Currently AWOL; Mr. Black Square kindly offered to stand in.

      Until your second paragraph, I thought you were my daughter. I believe she has all 7 books memorized.

      • Dean Bigglesworth

        Good thing I added the second paragraph then, otherwise this might have been awkward. I was around fourteen when i read the first book, about fourteen years ago.

        I had had the book for months and girl in my class didn't stop pestering me about it until I read it, so I eventually did. She later recommended i read Kerouac and some other authors, they also turned out to be excellent recommendations. Haven't seen her in over a decade, though.

  • A wand will get you your friend's sister. A light saber get you a crush on your own sister.

  • cruisintime

    Both a wand and a light saber. Also a toolbox and a shotgun,you cannot be too prepared.
