I'm pretty sure fireballs stop at solid barriers, including but not limited to the earth. It's a ball of fire, not an explosion. You wouldn't need to earth glide farther away than under the ground. Retracting your arm should be sufficient.
Though Imbicatus' points are all valid and would need to be overcome for this to work.
Yes. I know. I accidentally used a game term. I meant it initially as in what it means in the English language, now what it means in pathfinder language.
As stated. You are still correct. I made an err.
If memory serves you get to roll all knowledge checks (limited by what's appropriate for sake of speed) one time when you encounter a new situation. All rolls are free actions. This represents what the character already knows. Not any kind of time consuming analysis or research.
Effectively its one of every knowledge check per encounter. Though DM is smart to tell the player which one(s) to roll.

He has a point. Well, as much of a point as anyone talking about theoretical physics in a fantasy/sci-fi setting with quasi-religion/magic has.
Edit: Plus he called them/some of you nerfherders, which is awesome.

Basically this. Stick with something simple. Ranged weapons as primary with a melee backup. Dont be a hero and don't go first. Plus I'd assume there is no money or happy ending if you "win." I'd play along while looking for an actual exit.
Edit: Now if the "racial gear" was actually something to give me an edge such as "darkvision" being a pair of night vision goggles, then I'd do that.
Getting to space in a world of magic is easy.
Any shmuck with boots of levitate and an amulet of adaptation and a lot of free time can get to space. Re-entry might be more difficult though. There are obviously better ways to get to space, but when one can tell physics to sit down and shut up it's much easier than in our physics-heavy reality.

I'm going to go on a limb and say that he's never actually been in battle with a broadsword as his main weapon. Also, he's probably not a force wielding jedi with a plasma sword. The force part being a major game changer.
Edit: minor correction.
I can read. Also I said a couple of times that you'd need to use things without line of effect. Careful with the caps lock. Wouldn't want to break the community guidelines.
Edit: interacting with the outside world would require some creativity. As stated.
Edit2: Spell intent and spells as written are not the same thing. Clearly this is an attempt to bypass intent and work with as written.
You're not inside a jar. You're inside a hedged prison. the binding spells are there to confine an entity, not enable it to interact with the outside world. Spells, nor speech, can cross it. Nor can it be "opened" unless broken first.
There are different ways you can use this spell. One of them is a hedge prison and another is minimus containment. You might want to reread the spell description. Linked above by VRMH.
Minimus Containment: The subject is shrunk to a height of 1 inch or less and held within some gem, jar, or similar object. The binding is permanent. The subject does not need to breathe, eat, or drink while contained, nor does it age. Reduce the save DC by 4.
Basically you're 1 inch tall and inside a jar. I can see a lot of ways one could continue to interact with the world. SLA's not being least among them. Just nothing that requires line of effect.
SOrcerer casts unseen servant to carry him around. Summons creatures, telekinesis, etc. Just cant use anything that requires LOE or material components.
Edit: Do you think you could open the jar and drop things inside?

If they get too uppity I'm sure a deity would step in with a quick dispel.

I have the same problem. I'm completely oblivious when I'm being hit on. One basically just has to say it to my face.
That being said it's fortunate that I'm a gay dude. When it comes to sex we're not known for subtly.
Funny thing is I've been happily and monogamously married for almost ten years. As you might imagine he's the direct type also.
Basically i'm "safe" now in that people can tell me things without worrying that I'll try to get into their pants or let them in mine. Anyhow, with this safety I've had more than one person tell me that they used to hit on me hard and I never seemed interested. Truth be told once upon a time I totally would have slept with them, but I didn't realize they were hitting on me.
Oblivious. Party of 1.
You're right. Oops. My bad. Well, you'll have to get creative with the timeless trait then.
