Mad Guardian columnist claims skiing “better than Millenium Falcon”

BONKERS. I have been in the ACTUAL Millennium Falcon on-set at Pinewood (Empire Strikes Back set). I have also been skiing quite a lot.

I can vouch for the fact that the Falcon wins, hands down. It wins by light years. It was one of the best and most memorable things that has ever happened to me. Also, it was more rickety than you’d have ever believed possible, and was actually quite a lot more frightening than skiing, as the whole thing was pretty high off the ground and sponged up and down furiously as you moved about. Plus I was eight.
