"Only Imperial Stormtroopers are so precise." (Which is, presumably, not very.)
The probability of a bad guy hitting his target is equal to the inverse of all bad guys present plus the cube of the number of good guys present (+1) + the number of Jedi present (+1) to the 10th power. Formulated by Greg Ross of Futility Closet.
There is one thing you want to be sure of when you're facing down a bunch of Stormtroopers. Did your name roll at the beginning of the credits or the end? If at the beginning, you're just fine. You don't even have to dodge if you don't want to. If at the end, you may want to get some major medical insurance and review your will and power of attorney to ensure they're up to date.
Poor Stormtroopers. You know those uniforms aren't comfy or very protective, and then they get picked on by film critics and fans. Well, we won't be an exception. Here's the ThinkGeek List of Events You Don't Want To Invite Stormtroopers To:
- Birthday party involving a piñata
- Darts tournament
- Paintball game (well, you don't want them on YOUR team...)
