Story via Laughing Squid; Bad news folks, it’s not going to happen. Check out the White House response to why they will not build a planet burning metal moon.
The Administration shares your desire for job creation and a strong national defense, but a Death Star isn’t on the horizon. Here are a few reasons:
– 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.
– The Administration does not support blowing up planets.
– Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?
Bummer. Oh well, maybe we should aim lower and try and get a few speeder bikes.
