As I was explaining (complaining?) to the older son about the odds of some particular favorable event happening, the younger son, who was playing a video game and didn’t even bother looking up from the computer, piped up with this little gem:

You know, he’s a smart kid.  If Han Solo hadn’t attempted to outrun the Empire, the most likely outcome would’ve been capture.  Of course, I suppose he didn’t see the getting encased in carbonite thing as a potential outcome.

Fortunately, I don’t anticipate that any outcome will result in carbonite encasement regardless of the success or failure of my attempts.

I now understand why we must live in a matriarchy: women are now becoming a significant part of the sci-fi demographic.

I guess it’s too long since I’ve been to a convention because my first thought was, “Really? Other women go to these things, too?” Guess so. Time to whip out the sewing machine…
