White House uses the force of logic to destroy the Death Star1/12/2013
To those hoping for America's intergalactic dominance, your dreams have gone up in smoke. The White House responded to a petition calling for the government to build a Death Star. An official statement from Paul Shawcross, the White House’s chief of science and space, explains quite humorously why that won't happen. The statement, titled "This Isn't the Petition Response You're Looking For," points out: It’s freaking expensive (more than $850 quadrillion), the White House isn't down with blowing up planets, the structure has a well-known weakness ("a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship"), and anyway, we already have a pretty rad operational space station. For his part, Darth Vader tweeted, "A serious mistake, Mr. President. You can never have enough planet-sized lasers." [Source]
