Recently I saw a post on Blastr that made me laugh out loud. Someone had gone to the trouble of adding Star Wars-style lightsaber effects to a badminton match. And you know what? It made the sport a whole lot more interesting!
My very last course in college was PE, due mostly to my irritation in having to take a PE class for a Business degree. But once I started it, I enjoyed it. After hearing the badminton shuttlecock (the thing they hit around) was one of the fastest “balls” in sports, I decided to investigate via a term paper. And yes, it’s true. The feathers slow it down almost immediately, but the shuttlecock is in the top three in the fastest category. Stump friends and family with that one!
Anyway, back to lightsabers. Seeing this video made me wonder what other offerings youtube might have on the subject and a wasted evening later, here’s a list of some of the most interesting…
Pirates of the Caribbean
Lord of the Rings
Some crazy old men fighting over the right-of-way on a single lane street.
The Lost finale
Monty Python (PG for language)
And the list keeps growing!
