(The Boy and I are watching Star Wars Episode I on DVD. Darth Maul has just been pushed off the edge of a...ventilator shaft? Or something? I dunno.)
Me: What is with all these bottomless pits in the middle of everybody's workspace? Didn't practically every Star Wars movie have someone falling into a pit?
Boy [thinking]: Most of them, yeah.
Me: That's a huge insurance risk, you know.
Me: Well, it's a big liability issue. I'm sure most insurance company guidelines would require at least a guard rail around a bottomless pit. Maybe even a chain link fence with a lockable gate. The Empire would have a hell of a time trying to get coverage.
Me: WELL IT'S AN IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION!
