While at the gym, the mind wanders, and today was no different for me. Unfortunately, no great discovery will ever come from the soft mass of mush between my ears. But as I was pounding out useless miles on the treadmill, I've got to think about something, so why not Star Wars and E.T.?
That's right, E.T.: Extra Terrestrial. Not sure why I was thinking about him (or her?), maybe I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and the comparison between a doughy, wrinkled and blue-eyed weirdo and that loveable character were too similar at the moment, but I got to thinking, "ET could do some cool stuff.
He/she could: make stuff float, heal people, put him/herself into a lower state of metabolism, similar to death, and then come out refreshed.
ET lived in the world of Star Wars, as seen in the Galactic Senate in Phantom Menace.
ET was a Jedi Knight!
Sure, he/she didn't have a robe or a lightsaber, but ET didn't need it. ET was awesome just as ET.
And now you know, too.
