Since they have a fundamentally different body chemistry to any other life form, they have some way of transforming matter into energy and vice versa alarmingly efficiently.
Matter into energy and then back into matter again at a rate of well over 100% if they can grow into 8-foot beings without actually ingesting anything more than a single 6-foot human being.

One of the things that makes me sad about Aliens is that its view of the future military was almost 100% taken from Heinlein's Starship Troopers which basically made any film version of Starship Troopers impossible to make without seeming like a rip-off of Aliens. I know, I know, that was the least of the problems the actualStarship Troopers movie had, but still...

Getting back to the original Star Wars theme, I assume everyone here is familiar with the Chad Vader series, but I only recently came across Chad's attempt to create a Vlog which I found highly amusing. Enjoy.

I really want "Belms" to be a real word.

It is. I mean, I dunno if it's in the OED, but there's no better definition of belming other than... 'belming'. Although Toro's definition of the word may be different.

It's that thing kids do where they stick their tongue under their front lip and moan, pretending to be retarded.

That's an English term for it, I think it's (marginally) more agreeable than the Irish equivalent "Christying". As in My Left Foot's Christy Brown...
