Stephen Colbert Comes To The Defense Of The Crossguard Lightsaber
Amateur hour is over. With people losing their hands left and right in the Star Wars films, it only makes sense that the sequels would make some strives forward in wrist protection. However, since the introduction of the crossguard lightsaber in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser, there's been strong debate about the impractical nature of the design. I even weighed in against it. Now, the world's longest fan of Star Wars, Stephen Colbert is coming to its defense. His reasoning should shut down this argument. However, I posit that three laser beams are unwieldy and increase your chance of accidental injury. Prove me wrong.
