    What would it be like to not cast a shadow? Hold your hand up over your face to block the sun. Can you still see the light source? If so, how do you see through your hand? If not, how is the skin immediately around your eyes illuminated? I mean, magic, sure. But how?

Train robberies are a staple of adventure stories. Think back to Indiana Jones, or Firefly. They’ve got so much going for them: A tiny, isolated arena without a chance of backup; immediate innocents and threat of collateral damage; abstract valuables, allowing for generic baddies; and atmosphere that everyone can imagine in their heads. You could easily scope out a feature-length movie set entirely within a train robbery.

Same thing with hijackings. Go watch Air Force One. It’s fantastic.
