I must say, some of the people on this forum are kings and queens of missing...

    Calling Somebody's Dojo A McDojo Is Offensive

    Calling somebody else's dojo a mcdojo, on this forum or anywhere else, I would like to point out that's very offensive.

    A Real Lightsaber

    So these people have perhaps come the closest, so far, in building a real lightsaber. I posted this here rather than in the sword folder because this is a fantasy sword and what they built would probably not function that well as a real sword. Still, I must say they did a really good job.
