How Do Stormtroopers Get Through Airport Security? http://chris.pirillo.com/2010/11/05/how-do-stormtroopers-get-through-airport-security/ Fri, 05 Nov 2010 19:45:44 +0000 http://782114787 Continue reading How Do Stormtroopers Get Through Airport Security? ]]>

Chat room visitor Benson wanted to know how difficult it is for a Stormtrooper to get through airport security while wearing all that armor. What do YOU think – seriously?

Let me tell ya – it’s a joke. They asked me to remove my watch. I don’t wear one – where the hell would I put it? They asked me to remove metal. Dude, come on! I can’t! If I’m not wearing my armor, I’m open to the elements. I can’t do it!

They tend to let me twist through, cuz they really don’t want to get shot. I’m not trying to downplay airport security, but they really don’t want to mess with a Stormtrooper. You don’t want me to even explain what happened when one of the security people tried to do a strip search on one of our guys. I still shudder every time I think about it.

We don’t encounter this too often, anyway. Stormtroopers usually prefer to use their own form of transportation.

What if the Empire had Beaten the Rebellion? http://chris.pirillo.com/2010/11/03/what-if-the-empire-had-beat-the-rebellion/ Wed, 03 Nov 2010 19:14:27 +0000 http://chris.pirillo.com/?p=23011 Continue reading What if the Empire had Beaten the Rebellion? ]]>

An unidentified person in the chat room asked our beloved Stormtrooper what the world would be like if the Empire had won. I want to make it very clear that the war isn’t over yet, young paladins. The Empire will never give up!

You win some and you lose some, but you haven’t seen the last of the Empire. We’re still around. You killed our Emporer, but the game is not over. These guys need to keep in mind that this is constantly moving forward.

There will be battles until the end of time. The universe wouldn’t be better if the Empire had won… because we haven’t LOST yet.

Can you believe FuggedabouditNL was able to do this in Microsoft Paint? I could barely draw a circle with the official circle-drawing tool. Guess it’s not about the tool, after all. He puts Photoshop artists to shame!

As you probably know, MS Paint is free software! This video once again proves that one doesn’t need expensive programs like Photoshop to create some nice 3D images!

This drawing was done in only five hours. Can you even believe he did this? Seriously? I’d like to see YOU try it!

Do Stormtroopers Listen to Music? http://chris.pirillo.com/2010/10/22/do-stormtroopers-listen-to-music/ Sat, 23 Oct 2010 00:32:19 +0000 http://chris.pirillo.com/?p=22835 Continue reading Do Stormtroopers Listen to Music? ]]>

What kind of music do you listen to? Well, that’s what was asked of the stormtrooper, so… here’s the answer, as recorded live – with questions being taken from Twitter.

This is a great question. Like all people, Stormtroopers have eclectic taste. I happen to love my Pandora stream and 8-bit music. It’s difficult to get a signal when you have to deal with another Empire in terms of your data plan. You want to talk about evil Empires… AT&T is the best of the best at that.

Every Stormtrooper has something different that they like to listen to, just as you humans do. We’re really not that different, after all.

Behind the Stormtrooper Mask is a LEGO Geek http://chris.pirillo.com/2010/10/20/behind-the-stormtrooper-mask-is-a-lego-geek/ Thu, 21 Oct 2010 03:25:55 +0000 http://chris.pirillo.com/behind-the-stormtrooper-mask-is-a-lego-geek/ Per the Minifig Me company, I have my own face on a LEGO minifig:

Behind the Stormtrooper Mask is a LEGO Geek

Granted, I’m sporting a Stormtrooper body… largely, because the head is peach-colored and most of my minifigure arms have yellow hands. I’m on the lookout for better options.

So, am I a little short for a stormtrooper? Quite honestly, I didn’t even want to dignify this question with a response. It’s really upsetting to be someone who has grown as much as he ever will be belittled on friendly nice web sites such as YouTube.

Oh, and if you threaten to unsubscribe, I’ll have to blast ya with Imperial precision.
