But I got distracted by a squirrel or something shiny and didn’t click on the link. I remember resolving to do so if I ever saw the link again, because damn.
And now, some days later, it turns out there was … sort of … a black stormtrooper controversy. Except that there wasn’t. Or something. Or so it says here.
What we have here is a prime example of a fascinating Internet phenomenon: the preemptive denunciation of a controversy that doesn’t exist.
So that was worth getting my full power back, just to learn that. I think.
But as with all such things, what’s really funny is that it seemed perfectly plausible to me that somebody would be outraged over something having to do with the black stormtrooper. Assuming, you know, that he’s actually a stormtrooper and not this episode’s take on Luke Skywalker. Which in turn would probably outrage somebody, because Luke was kind of a schlemiel.
