So fiction does not equal reality? Good to know.

Why indeed? Why does anyone bother doing anything that isn't real like work, family and life? Maybe people want to pass their time doing something fun once in a while...

I never understood why someone would watch sports events on the TV for hours on end, it's not like he has any chance to determine what happens there either. But maybe he thinks it's fun to see others compete, or feels good if his team or countryman wins.

Discussing your favorite TV series, book series, movie series... why not? Some like to think up theories behind these fictional events, others like to support or shoot them down with quotes from the source material.

Why not shoot the breeze and discuss things like star wars, or firefly or any other sci fi show or movie?

Beats the hell out of talking about how depressing real life is and how it's slowly degenerating into a cesspool of crap.

We are expected to accept that small starfighters can tank sustained fire from massive star destroyers and tie fighters (Ep V), the Empire's troops are inept at aiming and their armor is useless against sticks and stones (ewoks), and the universe's elite fighters, the jedi, are so, despite going into battle unarmored with a simple lightsaber and could be defeated by a shotgun or simply being shot by three opponents at once (a line cannot intersect three non-collinear points). There's no point in discussing Star Wars, because nothing stands up to scrutiny. Everything happened the way it did, because the writers said so.
Lol! I feel the same way about sports! You don't even play the game, why spend hours studying stats that you don't have any influence over, and then watch hours of it when you could just go outside and play with all the other nerds that spends hours studying football.
But hey, to each his own. If they find fun doing whatever stupid thing they wanna do (which, taken into whatever perspective you choose: is everything in life), they'll do it.
