So we all know that the force can have a poweful effect on the weak-minded. Fine.
But yesterday I was contemplating how much simpler my life would be if I could change the batteries in my smoke detectors with The Force. Reach up, unclip the battery, send the new one up and BAM, no fuss no muss. What could be simpler?
But it occurs to me that we almost NEVER see any subtle physical manifestations of the force.
Yoda picks up the X-Wing
Vader throws large objects
Anakin floats a fruit
Everyone and their kid brother throws lightning
But all of those are gross manipulation of matter.
I was thinking that, even with The Force being strong in me, if I needed to get the smoke detector off the ceiling it would be a pain in the butt because I’d never seen anything like the ability to unscrew a screw or somesuch.
