America Officially Rejects Death Star

Postby 666345345 » Sat Jan 12, 2013 7:07 pm

The United States officially responded to an online petition asking that government to build a death star. (yes the one from Star Wars)
While refusing on the grounds of the cost of the project (allegedly $850 quadrillion), the United States government stated that the United States of America is adamantly opposed to blowing up planets that have people on them.

How much would you like to bet the first Republican gets elected President will try to build a Death Star to spite Obama?
Crimes committed by Muslims will be a pan-Islamic plot and proof of Islam's inherent evil. On the other hand crimes committed by non-Muslims will merely be the acts of loners who do not represent their belief system at all.

If a political figure makes an accusation of wrongdoing without evidence, odds are probable that the accuser or an associate thereof has in fact committed the very same act, possibly to a worse degree.

Actually under Reagan this badass program called "Star Wars" was started (never finished FYBC) where the idea was to build a sattelite that shoots down a laser to destroy Soveit nukes upon being fired...

Fools! How dare they refuse access to UNLIMITED POWER! The Dark side beckons. We saw what happened to the Jedi...

Of course. The administration refuses to blow up planets, but drones can blow up people. In the galactic scheme of things, a Planet is just another person and the Death Star is a drone. Problem solved, now prepare the lasers to fire.

I had hopes they would accept the petition. I guess we'll just have to rely on a private group to build it, similar to how our space flights are now supplied by a private corporation.

Even though the United States doesn't have anything that can do the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, we've got two spacecraft leaving the Solar System and we're building a probe that will fly to the exterior layers of the Sun.


"The construction of the Death Star has been estimated to cost more than $850,000,000,000,000,000. We're working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it"

Clearly, wot wot, Obama does not have the national security interests of America in mind, wot wot.

*clears throat*

Sorry, what? Oh. Right. I thought the response from the White House was in excellent/humorous taste and I enjoyed it as much as I did the petition and the conversation surrounding it.

Great fun was had by all involved. Honestly, I think this is a bit of a PR win for the administration. Nothing too major, but it's nice to see them having fun like the rest of us.

tbf, the administration did not want to waste taxpayer money on building it with a the design flaw involving access to the reactor core.

What an silly proposal. This will never happen under current technology, and even if Star Wars was cool (I find it ridiculous, personally, so no offense to all you fans), what is the point of a Death Star? A Tesla death ray is perfectly fine, and they are less expensive. I believe in developing technologies to create a perpetually habitable space station, but a Death Star is not necessary. A small colony on the moon or Mars should be the first step. Besides, who in their right mind would spend 850 quadrillion dollars on some ugly space station that could be infiltrated by small objects. It honestly should not have come up in the first place. If this proposal was seriously accepted and thought about, it would be centuries before we could develop the technology and the resources to build something that huge. A wouldn't the sheer mass and gravity make the center, or core, of the Death Star melt, making most of it unlivable. The sheer firepower is silly. What is the point of destroying planets. We need Jupiter because it deflects many asteroids from the Kuiper Belt or Oort Cloud headed for Earth. A perfect thing to destroy would be Ceres, the dwarf planet in the asteroid belt. We do not need that little dwarf planet, and breaking it into smaller pieces could allow us to mine those smaller pieces and more resources, making the remains useful. A proposition such as this should never have been brought up, in my opinion. Let those Star Wars fans, revel in their lost dreams forever, I say.
