An explanation of the "Jedi pit theory," for The Mollett...

This came about due to a highly philosophical conversation at a fine dining establishment... *cough*... okay, so we were really just wasting time and eating at Burger King... anyways, it started out that Gabe was complaining about Boba Fett dying as a result of some cheap slapstick... or, in Gabe's words, "Boba F*CKING Fett"... ;) I can explain this more later, if necessary... :)

Anyways, this evolved into a discussion of how, in all of the Star Wars movies, if a multiple number of Jedis enter a room with / near a pit, only one can emerge. Examples (with advance apologies for spelling):

Episode 1: Darth Maul, Qui-Gon Jinn, and Obi-Wan Kenobi enter a room with a pit. Qui-Gon dies, Darth Maul goes down the pit. Obi-Wan emerges.

Episode 4: Darth Vader and Obi-Wan duke it out near a pit. Obi-Wan dies; Darth Vader emerges.

Episode 6: Darth Vader, The Emperor, and Luke Skywalker in a room with a pit. The Emperor is hurled into the pit, Darth Vader lives long enough to get out of the room and take his mask off, then dies. Like emerges.

Compare these with Luke's assorted escapes from pits (including the example from Episode 6, above): Luke gets out of the pit with the Rancor, doesn't fall into the Sarlak pit, AND falls down a pit/hole in Cloud City, but only loses his hand (which, mind you, is in a battle with another Jedi...). So, since Luke is immune to the ill effects of pits on Jedis, he is the savior... :)

The end. :)
