Death Star petition demands a response from the White HouseMonday, December 17, 2012
“Don’t be too proud of this technological terror you’ve constructed.” – Darth Vader
Last week a petition to build a Death Star by 2016 gained more than 25,000 signatures on We the People, a White House website. According to the website’s regulations it’s enough to merit a response from President Obama’s administration.
The petition reads, “By focusing our defense resources into a space-superiority platform and weapon system such as a Death Star, the government can spur job creation in the fields of construction, engineering, space exploration, and more, and strengthen our national defense.”
Folks at the economics blog Centives claim this project will cost 13,000 times the world’s GDP.
Is it too big to fail? Do you find their lack of faith disturbing?
