Star Wars: Y-Wing Beats X-Wing, Gold Squadron Finally Kicks Ass – Gizmodo

There are so many rich references to Star Wars in this title and post – everyone should watch this.  For those of you who pretend not to care about Star Wars – last weekend a number of people build 1/2 scale models of various ships, added rocket engines to them, and launched them.  It defies awesomeness.  The best quote of the post:

Let’s face it together, Star Wars nerds—as much as it gives us a giant collective nerd-boner to imagine real, flying Star Wars vehicles, buzzing the air traffic controllers at JFK Intl’ airport, these things were designed by Lucas’s film masters, not aerospace engineers

Nerd-boner.  That is my new favorite phrase.
