HowTo talk:Make Cheesy Sci-Fi
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
Han Solo was indeed paid for his services at the beginning of Episode V. Thus, please change the "Boring Laws of Economy You have to Ignore".

edit Must Haven'ts - Showers
The rule about "No showers" is patently not true. There have been shower scenes in "Starship Troopers" and "Star Trek: Voyager". As it happened, the scenes in question all featured young, good-looking female characters at their ablutions. Hmmm...

edit Boring Laws of Chemistry You Have To Ignore
I had to remove this altogether, for two reasons. First it inaccurately referred to the first law of thermodynamics as the second law. Secondly, the person who originally wrote this failed to grasp that both the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics are Boring Laws of Physics You Have To Ignore ! Sorry to be pedantic.

- Okay, now listen: it was originally the 'first law' but after it was edited by an IP and I tought it was my mistake. Second: it's debatable whether the laws of thermodynamics refer to phisics or chemistry. They have implacations on both fields of knowledge and I chosen chemistry just to add another section. Third: I'm reverting. If you want to edit it and make this more accurate, go ahead, but don't remove that section. It's very important as it's one of the laws of Science most violated by sci-fi. -- herr doktor needsAscalpel [scream!] 16:04, 14 February 2007 (UTC)
Must have: Flames for illumination, especially in a hyperdrive-equipped starship. None of those wimpish 21stC low-energy bulbs, a naked gas-flame is the only illumination-source for the serious interstellar traveller. Never mind the oxygen usage, we've got plenty extra cylinders. -- Lantash 17:12, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
Actually nuclear explosions are not fire, do not require oxygen and do occur in space. Not that that matters since this is an uncyclopedia article (and a pretty good one at that) but I just thought you'd like to know. -- The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kelpan
- Be my guest, Kelpan. We're really trying hard to be bad smartasses in this article. I just don't have a clue about how a nuke would appear in outer space. Certainly, no nuke mushroom. -- herr doktor needsAscalpel [scream!] 19:57, 23 February 2007 (UTC)
edit Boring Laws of Economy you heve to Ignore
Maybe add 'intgergalactic bounty hunter' to one of the jobs everybody has?
edit Sound does not propagate in a vacuum
mh, i dont know much about physics, but WHY?
The sound is a vibration of atoms or molecules, so it needs some material vehicle to propagate. It could be water, air or even solid elements, as a wall. The vacuum have some atoms, but too few for the sound to propagate. Light and radio, in other hand, are waves of particles emitted from the origin, so they have their own vehicle to propagate in vacuum. See, I'm such a smartass... hehehe. -- herr doktor needsAscalpel [scream!] 18:38, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
edit Must Haves for Dialogue - List of Examples with one fake item from the future
At some point in the story, one of the characters HAS TO give a list of examples to support his point in some discussion. When he does, he MUST include two very famous examples from real (Earth) history, followed by one from some galactic "future history". For example: "He was as brutal a dictator as there ever was, like Genghis Khan, or Adolf Hitler, or Rakblak of Andromeda." (feel free to modify or expound on this further and add it to the article if you think it's worthy) Dscharf 21:05, November 12, 2009 (UTC)
