    The White House has responded to the petition to build a Death Star. Approximately 34,000 people signed the petition.

    Some of the reasons given for not building a Death Star:

    • 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?

    Of course, the weakness to exploit would mean that someone has already built a one-man space fighter. [face_nail_biting]

    But, yes, this article still cracked me up.

    While the US may have said no, there still is hope. Time to petition the UK!
