The PC that did the Kessel Run in less than 12 Parsecs

Get a load of this: a running PC made from the Millenium Falcon. There's one motivated geek. Of course, you and I know that the whole Kessel Run thing doesn't make sense because, after all, the parsec is a unit of distance (3.08568025 × 1016m), not time. I'm sure George "It's-Titanic-in-space" Lucas would have us believe that this is just a case of Han shooting off his mouth without knowing what he's talking about, but just like this guy, I'm not buying into some retcon.

George addresses this on the commentary for A New Hope. I forget exactly what his reasoning was, but I'll check it if you want me to. But George claims he knew this when he wrote the line, and then made some explanation of his choice which I can't recall at the moment 'cause I'm high.
