Jabba the Hut
 
Is Data strong enough to pick up Jabba over his head and chuck him?

In the beginning of "Return of the Jedi," Jabba grabs some live thing and eats it. If, instead, he wanted to eat Chewbacca or Boba Fett, would they be in deep manure, or could they extricate themselves from the situation?

Are you talking about the fictional android, or the TrekBBS poster?

The fictional android. I doubt any ten TrekBBS posters could pick up Jabba and chuck him!

While Data was able to snap several Borg necks in First Contact, it did seem like he had slight difficulty. So he'd probably have trouble lifting Jabba up, though I'm sure he'd be able to at least slow him down.

More likely, Data would grab Jabba by the tail and swing him in a few circles through the air before flinging him away that way.

Jabba gained a lot of weight between New Hope and Jedi. If he was human, I would think it was water weight, but perhaps mr The Hutt just woke up from hibernation, where %80 of his mass was extremely buoyant fart because he hadn't unfastened his butt-plug yet.... How Hibernation works. Look it up.

Re: Jabba the Hut
 
I wonder how much Jabba weighs. Must be at least 900 pounds, I imagine. How about the second question?

Data was commonly said to have the strength of ten men...I think ten men might be able to carry Jabba around, but it wouldn't be easy or pleasant....and Data, being only one being, would have more of a leverage issue with all that flabby bulk....

Re: Jabba the Hut
 
Ten strong men, like Hulk Hogan in his prime, perhaps. Ten men like me, I doubt it. But it all depends on how much Jabba weighs, of course.

1,358 kilograms, or just under 3000 pounds, according to Wookiepedia.

It's not so much Jabba's weight, but the fact he's a bulbous, fat slug. Data would only be able to lift part of Jabba, while the other parts would sag & droop and probably envelop Data. Luckily Data doesn't need to breath, nor would he be offended by the stench.

Now, if Popeye ate his spinach, he could grab Jabba by the tail, spin around and throw him.

Re: Jabba the Hut
 
Hmmm. If true, I think it would take more than ten strong men to lift him. I don't even know if Data could lift 3,000 pounds.

Your fascination with Data is endlessly fascinating in itself, McBain. Is there anything you won't wonder about Data?

It depends on how long they're stuck in there before they get out. If it's right away they might be ok. If they stay in there any longer Jabba's stomach acids might eat them up...in that case Fett has the advantage here with his armor while Chewie is basically nude.

Are they packing?
