If you’re planning on visiting Australia (aka the Land of Nopes) anytime soon, then you might want to consider taking a suit of Imperial Stormtrooper armor to help keep you safe from all those poisonous snakes. Let me explain: Australian Scott Loxley is currently walking across Australia dressed up in a suit of Stormtrooper armor to help raise money for charity. In a recent video, he notes that he was walking across north Queensland when he stumbled upon what he thought was a dead snake lying near the road. Unfortunately, the snake (which Loxley thinks was a King Brown Snake) was alive, and it tried to bite his leg.
“The good news is, the armour…he bit me in the shin, and the armour actually protected me and stopped the bite,” says Loxley. “I could feel the teeth on the plastic scraping, but the armour actually stopped something! So all those people who rag on stormtroopers, saying the armour doesn’t do this or doesn’t do that, it stopped a snake bite and probably saved my life.”
