I'm Not THIS Much of a Star Wars Geek

Egads!! Home-made light-sabers ain't like dustin' crops boy...oops, my apologies for that slip.

The Force--let alone common sense--was definitely not with them.

Two British Star Wars fans sustained critical injuries after constructing their own lightsabers from fluorescent light tubes filled with liquid fuel.

Great googily-moogily.

I hope these folks make a full and complete recovery, but even the suggestion of using flammable material in these home-made contraptions should have put one of the Jedi Knights on high alert.

To add insult to injury, the dynamic duo videotaped the light-saber clash for posterity. Do I sniff another "Star Wars Kid" in the making? Let's hope not, for everyone's sake.
