Remember a few weeks back when Rob posted about how Star Wars fans could get a replica of themselves in carbonite at Walt Disney World? Here’s a video detailing the experience. In his novel The Book of Laughter and Forgetting, Milan Kundera discusses an old Czech word called listost that describes the “state of agony and torment created by the sudden sight of one’s own misery.” That about sums up how I felt after watching this and realizing I don’t have one of these things in my life.
