Learn lightsaber safety tips with Star Wars parody video

A lightsaber is an elegant weapon for a more civilized age, but it's a dangerous tool if you don't know how to use it. This fan video offers some handy tips, so you can actually keep your hand.

When training to be a Jedi, one of the most important skills to master involves wielding a lightsaber. One wrong twirl and you could end up slicing and dicing your own arm off.

Luckily for us, a new video posted by YouTuber Nukazooka gives pointers on lightsaber safety.

For example, when pruning trees using a lightsaber, don't hold branches in place with your hand or you could lose an appendage.

The video also offers suggestions on using smaller lightsabers for lighting cigarettes and shaving. Just don't use these minisabers for battling bullies, or you could be in for a very short duel.

When all else fails, use your Force choking powers instead. After all, losing a hand might be a Skywalker family trait, but that doesn't mean you should follow in their footsteps.
