    Me I can debunk his debunking. Think of an electrically activated patch that give the rolling surface "goosebumps" to provide traction...
     

  3. He does realize...

    So this exceptionally smart person DOES realize this a science FICTION movie and not a documentary, right?
    Debunking the technology on a Star Wars film is akin to pointing out how many times a revolver fires in a spaghetti western.

    So the imaginary science fiction movies are fake? Good thing there was a Mensa physicist around to point that out. Sure would have looked silly trying to book my next space flight to Tatooine.
