    I thought Nookie was slang for sex.

    It's used as an earlier form of "pussy". It's kinda both.

    what was that one book Gabe read about life on the Death Star? the people who operated it, opened Cantinas on it, all the logistics of operating it basically?

    It's called Death Star, shocking I know, and it's goddamned terrible.

    Have you heard of the song "I did it all for the Nookie?"

    Nookie is old-timey slang for vagina.

    "Nook" is a word for vagina.

    Kids these days.

    OHHh I get it.

    I never thought of it that way. I just thought of a Nook like... a small space in a room.

    It wasn't that bad, as Star Wars books go, I mean it wasn't Barbara Hambly bad or anything. More like Kevin J. Anderson bad.

    The worst part was how space-whatever they got. Nothing could just be a thing, it had to be a space-thing, so you didn't forget you were in space.

    No, it would be more like "a hot vibroblade through Kuati seal butter" or something.

    I swear to god, there's one part where instead of saying "rose-tinted glasses," they say "rose-tinted drop-tacs."
    1. The fuck is a drop-tac?
    2. You couldn't say "rose-tinted goggles?" Pretty sure there's goggles in Star Wars.
    3. You can't have glasses, but you can have roses? Shouldn't it be "Tatooine desert rose-tinted drop-tacs?"

    I mean with Star Wars literature you have to accept a certain level of hokeyness to begin with, and this doesn't go much past that.

    And it's kind of interesting how all that death star stuff works.

    But my point is that Death Star was especially bad about it. Usually they'll just avoid American English idioms, but in Death Star, it was like someone just wrote the book like they were all characters from modern-day Earth, and did a find-and-replace.

    Like the rose-tinted drop-tacs thing. Most Star Wars books would just drop the phrase altogether and say 'nostalgia' or something.

    To be fair, that name originates from the original X-Wing game, when I was like eleven. I don't think anyone really expected the best out of those writers.

    I have a Lego A-Wing starfighter, and the control panel in the cockpit is just one of those sloped pieces with something printed on it, like they use, you know? The thing printed on it is a little targeting computer with a wireframe Star Destroyer bridge with a crosshair on there. I swear to god, it's like "Crash here."

    Appropriately creepy comic then. Unboxing sounds like a euphemism for something in the first place, something intimate

    Failing that it sounds like the opposite of a certain pugilist activity, and god knows how that'd work in practise

    People start with brain damage and, over the length of their career, end up with none! Sadly, many decide to enter the boxing ring afterwards, and bring it full circle.
