I was watching a show on the technology of Star Wars today. Yes, I'm a nerd.
At one point in the show, they were discussing the technology of Darth Vader, it's uses, functions, etc. And what was one of the experts' lines?? (along the lines of:) ...measures the sugar in his blood... manages his glucose. Technically, doesn't that make Darth Vader diabetic?? If the lava took out his pancreas? And he uses one ginormous pump?? Cool!!
If anyone can find a video clip of this, you'll be awesome forever! I didn't manage to track one down on YouTube, which was disappointing :( But I got all phsyced up to post this. It's disappointing that no one told me Darth Vader is technically diabetic! Figured I could prevent the same sort of heart break for all the other nerds :D It's comforting, isn't it? To know one of the greatest villains goes through, basically, the same things we do? (Excluding the fact that he basically lives in/wears one giant insulin pump...)
