Castor and Pollux are two bright stars in the constellation Gemini, the Twins.
So which one is Castor and which one is Pollux? You know what, I don't care. Does it really matter?
Uh-oh, I've been infected by the microspace bug... if the symptoms include fun, simple little builds like these, I guess I can live with it.
I've wanted to build twin fighters named Castor and Pollux for a while -- I just always thought they'd be minifig scale. Obviously that never materialized.
Fast, agile, huge guns. Just like me. (Yeah, right...)
I have nothing more to say about them, but we do still have space to fill. How about a joke? This was told to me once by some random guy old enough to be my grandfather. Stop me if you've heard it before.
"You have three girls in third grade: a blonde, a brunette, and a redhead. Which one is the sexiest?"
Now, if you're like me when I first heard this, you don't want to answer, because he said the girls are in third grade and saying that any of them might be "sexy" makes you kind of seem like a child molester.
But no, the old guy demands that you pick one. You have to give in if you want to hear the punch line. I don't know, the redhead, I say. The old guy cackles. "Ha, everybody says the redhead, but that's wrong. It's the blonde! You want to know why?"
All right, I give up. Why? "Because she's twenty-seven years old!" And he cackles delightedly again. I imagine he tells it to any stranger who'll stand in one place long enough to let him, and that he never tires of it. Heck, maybe he even made it up himself.
But I have to admit that I chuckled, and not just to be polite.
