    Well, I imagine holding your sword would be a bit difficult, and touching anything would be a problem... and I'm pretty sure falling through the planet's crust to the core would be a bit impractical too.

    But hey, at least nobody else can kill you!

    Paint them red (Cuz red makes them go fastah), Make them shoot even more missiles, add a hundred rockets, make it a nuclear weapon, shoot it out of the most powerful cannon in the world, make them make that high-pitched noise, and emblazon them with Kamina's glasses.

    My brother and I once played around with imaginary lightsaber gloves. It seemed okay, then I managed to wound him, so he grabbed his wound, which is an efficient amputation.

    It would be an entertaining boxing match.

    ......you know what I find hilarious about the internet? I can suggest something perfectly reasonable, possibly innovative and sensible in comparison to lightsabers.....

    and a page later, we end up with this nonsense. Its like....

    I was so disappointed to find out it was just a laser. Like, so very disappointed. For a moment there, a very brief moment, I thought we were soon to have lightsabers, like in those Starwars movies with which I fell in love.*

    As for the topic of lightsaber variants and not the Internet being silly, I don't know enough about tonfa fighting to say Ms. Brood's lightsabers are not a good, but I am pretty sure it is so, and am pretty sure she'd be a lot better off with a pair of regular lightsabers. That reminds me, shouldn't Jedi duel-wield? Why don't they? Too expensive?

    Also, why no light-knives? Lightsabers do negate many of the benefits of knives (small and concealable), but come on, lightwhips. We're clearly not being practical at this point, so why not knives? At least they have some realistic application. Here's my idea: a lightflail. It would be downright silly, but come on: A lightflail.

    *The Starwars movies I am referring to are, of course, of the awesome trilogy: The prequel trilogy. The original movies were very good movies in their own right, but they failed to enchant me the way these prequels did. Someone had to like them, right?

    The only truly sensible lightsabre I've seen is the variant in the Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie:

    It makes toast!


    Lightsabres aren't about being sensible, however.

    (The most combat-useful would probably be the old lightsabre clone in the Ulysses animated series that did double-duty as a blaster).
