RE: Hopping Hadrosaurs
It is possible, as some Star Wars appologists have claimed, that the Kessel
Run is not a run of distance, but of time. Making the Kessel Run in a given
distance -- of parsecs -- means that it could be done in a longer distance,
"flying" _through_ a nebula or some other phenomenon instead of around it, that
sort of thing.
