First things first. The Death Star is a gun. It’s an extremely large entirely fictional gun but it’s a gun nonetheless. Alright? Now, let’s take journey to a web site far, far away (petitions.whitehouse.gov). “Those who sign here petition the United States government to secure funding and resources, and begin construction on a Death Star by 2016. 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.” As of 14:15, the petition has [Jennifer] garnered 20,086 signatures; just 4,914 shy of the total needed to hit the 25k threshold needed, as Fox News reports, “for the government to take it seriously.” Seriously? A federal boondoggle the size of a planet? Talk about the dark side . . .
