The Writing On Poe Dameron's Vest In Star Wars: The Force Awakens Has Been Decoded


Because fans on the Internet can do pretty much anything, the writing on Poe Dameron's vest in Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been decoded.

The writing, seen above, was deciphered by a curious Tumblr user who goes by @youneedapilot -- and while it could be the secrets to the universe, the true identity of Rey or Aunt Beru's perfect barbecue recipe, it in fact is pretty (awesomely) mundane.

"Pull to inflate," it says, as you might find on the life vests in any commercial aircraft.

The writing was in Aurebesh, a common written language in the Star Wars universe, and only took this long to decode because it was upside down and angled in such a way that it could be read by, say, a pilot bailing out in distress.

Not that Poe would know anything about that.

Thanks to CinemaBlend for finding this gem.
