# I call it "The Beast", Luke.
*EDIT* Interesting 'fact':

Revered b3tan Professor Kenny Martin once told us that Black & Decker drills have a built-in 'design life' of one hour. ie, it'll drill for an hour before dying.
For most users, this won't be a problem. But it's a pain in the arse if you're drilling all day every day. So pros use De Walt drills.
He once worked in a shop that sold such stuff, he said.

# Luke, pull your pants down!
Edit: Damn you B&D. You're so entry level.

Edit2: Drill pictured is a Porter Cable 9977. Not a clue if this is suitable for professional users, or Jedis.

# Not likely, you dirty old man.
If you want these pants down, you'll have to use force.

# Oh, great. Now the bloody Sith know.
They've got agents everywhere.

Remember that next time you talk idly in the aisles of B&Q.

# Haha I think we're safe from the dark side.
That's not the actual drill that Obi Wan uses. I used photograph manipulation software to superimpose the drill into his hand. Dunno if you can tell?

# Oh, shit.
This must mean the original film was actually true.

Oh well. At least it all happened a long time ago in a galaxy far away.
Today's drills would probably baffle even the Sith. One would hope.

# Hmmm not sure
Jedis construct their own light sabres. Surely they don't just use soldering irons and allen keys.

# I think you're right. No matter how noble and refined a Jedi might seem
I bet they'd sort someone out with a hammer if the situation called for it.

It's why most of the Star Wars universe looks like a pile of
shit welded to other shit by a brainless automation.

edit: This should be on greedydave's post now that I look at the thread.

I was listening to your I Love Horses Calypso Spacker Mix yesterday.

# Take it up with the Prof!
Anecdote about the first prototype Amstrad combined record/radio/tape/CD players:

Alan Sugar listened to a record, and then the same album on CD. Couldn't hear any difference. So he directed his R&D doods to make the record player sound worse.

Always looking forwards, these business types.
