Is a lightsaber incredibly useful for the common man? No. Do plan on battling any Sith lords in the coming years? No. Do I possess the ability to use the force? No. Do I still really, really want a lightsaber. Yes. Ever since I first watched Star Wars, having my own lightsaber has been a nerdy, lifetime dream of mine. It would help me protect myself or my family and friends from any and all dangers, and I’d make sure it was green because that’s my favorite color (plus it’s also like Luke’s in Return of the Jedi). I mean, imagine coming at a mugger or someone trying to break into your house with a lightsaber? They’d dropped their weapons out of pure shock.
