Re: Jabba the Hut

No he is not strong enough to pick him over his head and chuck him. He could probably shove him along the floor but this is assuming Jabba doesn't push back.

In Sumo the smaller combatant will often use the larger combatant's weight against them, to unbalance them. I wonder how helpless Jabba is if he throws himself forward and falls over, if he can right himself easily or not.

^ Again, as more of a blob, I'm not sure his weight could be used against him that effectively. Not sure he could get that much momentum.

Re: Jabba the Hut

If Spot was underneath Jabba I'm sure Data would roll him away..

Is Jabba fighting back in the OP's scenario?

Re: Jabba the Hut

How strong would one have to be to dribble Jabba like a basketball?

He wouldn't bounce, he'd be like a splat ball.

Re: Jabba the Hut

He doesn't look like his species is capable of having upper body strength focussed on those tiny little arms, but a stern regime of Kegels could do wonders for other parts of his body.

Re: Jabba the Hut

Actually I'm wondering if he's a worm? Although those massive eyes would be useless underground, which means possibly his natural environment is aquatic? Unless he comes from a planet with a much, much lower gravity and bounce like tiggers?

Although is he's supposed to be an under water monster, surely someone would have been spritzing him?

Although no one spritzed Jarjar.

Just to note, worms are all hermaphrodites.

So he's only has half the pussy you thought I said he has.

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?
A skinny woman was able to choke him to death with a chain and her weight. Chewbacca would probably have been able to kill him with his bare hands.

^ Chewbacca would have to shave his hands to be able to kill anything bare-handed.

Re: Jabba the Hut

Chewbacca isn't that threatening.

The TSA stopped and tried to search Peter Mayhew's bum because his lightsabre walking stick looked like it might be a high tech bomb.

My theory is that he has very important blood vessels on the surface of his skin and that is how he died under such pressure. These blood vessels can't be buried within him because the fat would crush them.

Re: Jabba the Hut

Or she subconsciously used the force. Vader's daughter... With training Leia should be able to juggle elephants. Without training, now and then, she can choke a bitch she shouldn't have the strength to realistically choke.

Jabba was role playing a fetish and wasn't actually dead.

If the Hutt are more like worms than lizards, then they have no skeletons. And if they're more like slugs than worms, then Leia should have been able to cut Jaba in half with that chain.

If a Hutts genitals are in their neck, I imagine that the bulk of their neck is a scrotal collar just under the dermal surface, and a penis pops out of thier mouth like a second tounge, or that erection set of teeth that potrude from the xenomorphs from Aliens.

Re: Jabba the Hut

What I don't get about the FORCE if it's so super wonderful you can lift space ships with it why don't they just use the force to stop a person's heart? Is there something woowoo about the heart, that it is the life pump and the force cannot prevail against it? Vader can choke people, for the theater of it. But if he didn't need theater could he just squeeze their heart with the force and BOOM heart attack? That way you don't even have to work against the LIFE PUMP, you just squish it a little and biology freaks out and the person dies.
