A Jedi craves not these things...

"It sure is boring around Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire today," whines Girl, age 17.

"Yes it is," sighs Boy, age 20.

"I wish we were Jedi Knights then we'd have exciting stuff to do all the time," says Girl wistfully.

"I know. Let's fill fluorescent light tubes with petrol, light it up and video ourselves having a light sabre duel," suggests Boy excitely, hoping to impress Girl with Star Wars-related adventure.

"Oh yes! Let's!" responds Girl, all aflutter with anticipation and love for inventive Boy.

Unfortunately, a very serious mishap befell our young hero and heroine in their quest for adventure and excitement. “Adventure – heh. Excitement – heh. A Jedi craves not these things,” warned Yoda.

"Two Star Wars fans are in a critical condition in hospital after apparently trying to make light sabres by filling fluorescent light tubes with petrol. A man, aged 20, and a girl of 17 are believed to have been filming a mock duel when they poured fuel into two glass tubes and lit it.

The pair were rushed to hospital after one of the devices exploded in woodland at Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire."
