Now witness the firepower of this fully armed and operational battle station!

OH NOI’d like to take this as a hopeful sign that geekitude and good humor trump everything. The following petition on the official White House web site surpassed 25,000 “signatures” and, as such, now requires an official response:

We petition the Obama administration to:
Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016.

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.


Death Star

Tidings of comfort and joySadly, I could probably rake in some pretty decent money by running an over-or-under betting pool on how quickly someone turns this into a batshit crazy conspiracy theory.

Ah well, it was good for a chuckle.
