Absolutely right, Tim.
Spoken like a true Mando'ade. Which is no surprise at all.
Thank you, Grand Master.
And no problem, Bones. I was thinking the same thing.
Consider me registered (as Bones), Bosslady. Also, I fear that my rural Mandalorian upbringing is showing. Should I revert to proper titles when addressing everybody?
That is not required, no. Just keep it in mind.
@MandoBones. I take it MandoJoe is also you?
He changed his name.
Yep. Both me. I think I initially registered when I first came to the board.
Gottcha. Well, you can only have one, so...
Bones works just fine, bosslady. I don't plan on changing it any time soon.
Never change Bones I like you just the way you are!
Of course you do. He is a Mandalorian after all.
Yer not so bad yerself, Gopher. Despite what these other folks say about ya when you're not around.
All right, done.
Runner, I'm sure you all ready know better than to listen to stuff like that.
Here's a question for you all: Say a person has four hands (as they are from a certain species which does) and in that species, each individual has only one main hand but is still capable of using their others semi-independently, would it be wise for them to have more than one lightsaber? Please give answers that are more than just 'yes' or 'no'.
Yes. Because two is one and one is none.
EDIT: By that I mean that the second one is a spare. You never said they had to use them both at the same time. I think all Jedi would be wise to carry a spare jetti'kad in case they lose one or it becomes damaged.
Yes, and double-bladed lightsabers at that...
I have the Lego minifigure of that guy.
My thoughts exactly, Bard'ika! I love backups, and even backups of the backups!
I agree with Bard'ika. You should always have a backup.
As far as wielding them, though, I would say no, simply because of the danger level involved. It takes lots of training to become proficient with a lightsaber. Becoming proficient with both hands (basically becoming ambidextrous) would require even more training. One would have to strengthen the off hand(s) and also retrain the body's instincts to let the off hand(s) act as independently as the dominant hand. If the time is there to devote to such training, it wouldn't be a bad idea, but just deciding to wield two potentially self harming weapons is too dangerous to attempt.
I'm still trying to figure out what Falcon thought I was going to do with an exercise DVD aside from exercise. Was this discussed while I was out?
Why you need so many backups
Bones makes a good point I am ambidextrous in RL. I never know what hand/arm to use when swinging a bat or tennis racket or whatever so I keep switching up and never really excel at either. That's why I prefer running and swimming.
Ah, the Besalisk species. Interesting choice. I wonder if they'd all be able to do that? I know that irl, a lot of power tool injuries happen to people who are left-handed and are forced to use their right hands because almost ALL (if not all) power tools are made for right-handers. Would it not be possible, even likely for someone using their off hand to wield a lightsaber to injure themselves? Which brings us back to my question of whether or not it's wise for someone with four hands to use multiple lightsabers? (I mean at once, Bardan)
Well, Shiny Jedi Lovelies, I'm out for the evening. I'll see yall tomorrow.
Well if you are going to limit it to using them at the same time I would agree with Bones.
EDIT: G'nite Bones.
