Gotta watch yourself when near those sci-fi fans; they’re a rough bunch.

In fact, it’s better not to mess with ‘em unless you’re packing serious heat; a laser blaster at a minimum - better yet, a pocket photon torpedo launcher.

Thing I’d be most concerned about with this group is them hacking your PC and stealing your personal info and then using it to launch an ICBM........ IN YOUR NAME!

It is unwise for people who travel by phonebooth to pick a fight with people who build/destroy Deathstars, or those who can think you dead.( or at least the fans thereof)

Why would Star Wars fans (which I am) hate Shatner? His ‘get a life’ skit did more damage than all the Empire. If the Emperor ever dies, Shatner will be his replacement.

...those who can think you dead.

Don't worry - they're not insane. Their mothers had them tested.
