I happened to hear the news this morning and they mentioned that they still have not found the missing Malaysian jet liner, but are trying some new thing or another. Two things come to mind every time I hear about this story, the first is this- why doesn’t some terrorist organization just take credit for it? Seriously, do us all a favor. You get to sound like big shots, the Navy can stop looking, everybody wins. The second is this- as the years go by and technology advances more and more sci-fi stories from the past seem absurd and outdated. This missing airplane…that the entire world has been looking for with sonar, subs, robot, satellites and every other damn thing just makes Boba Fett all the more absurd to me. Of all the jobs in science fiction his had to be the most ridiculous. an INTERGALACTIC bounty hunter…are you kidding me?
Jabba the Hut- yeah, I got this guy I want you to hunt down, he’s in his late twenties, white with dark hair…wears a black vest…he’s somewhere in the UNIVERSE. Here’s a Polaroid of him, it might help y’knw…show it around see if anyone has seen him.
Fett- “thanks. I’d better get started, I’m going to grab some road beers and load up my Ipod for my bizzillion light year road trip to I don’t know where. How long ago did he leave? doesn’t matter..if I veer off his course by half a smurfs hair I’ll be three solar systems away after 30 minutes at light speed…assuming I don’t hit anything…at light speed.
Oh yeah, and I believe Einstein postulated that speed of light travel and it’s effects on time means that even though only a few weeks would have passed for Han Solo and myself while traveling back and forth to another universe at light speed…a couple hundred years will have passed for you, so can I get an advance or are you going to leave a note for your great great grand-kids of what?”
An intergalactic bounty hunter…oy.
