  • It is incredibly difficult to break open a padlock with a handgun. With a smaller calibre gun, it’s near impossible to accomplish.

  • It’s impossible to pull the pin of a grenade with your teeth. All you’d be risking by doing so is a trip to the dentist.
  • Asteroid belts are not at all dense like we see in Star Wars. In reality, there are actually miles separating each asteroid.
