    The letter turning down that petition was pretty epic, I must say.

    but, wouldn’t building the death star do some crazy things with our tides?

    The Death Star was built a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. It didn’t work out.
    Its power was abused, and it had to be destroyed. A second one was started, and it to was destroyed out of necessity. Did we learn nothing?

    I have a better idea. Universal healthcare, keeping wall street, the big banks and the big corporations on short leashes, restoring Glass Steagall with sharp teeth, restoring the 75% tax rates on the rich that were in effect during the 1960’s, closing most overseas military bases, employing our veterans and jobless in good union jobs rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure, hauling the thieves of wall street and the megabank CEO’s into court to be tried for their massive financial crimes.

    @Clark Kent

    Sadly those are less feasible than the death star.

    What I want to know is- did anyone at any time really think that it was a practical, sensible, or even POSSIBLE idea? Um, isn’t Star Wars a… well… Fantasy? We might as well just get to work on forging the One Ring.

    (With Tongue-in-cheek) The only way I could even see this begin to be “feasible” would be to build a few autonomous robots to be sent to the asteroid belt. There they could use the raw material to build at least the superstructure, 10% scale. Of course it would still take between 500 and a 1,000 years to do even that much. Well, then it would be probably be too big to move. Lacking any space alien’s home planets to blow up, (it could take a couple of shots at Ceres), instead of abandoning it in place, it could then be converted into a space hotel/resort on the edge of the asteroid belt… Or what’s left of it…

    Since when does practicality or common sense have anything to do with defense spending in this country? I’m sure some of the projects we’ve funded in the past or are currently funding are just as preposterous as a Death Star. We even have an official agency for this, DARPA.

    @phritzg

    Not surprising at all.

    It would be far more feasible and cost effective to put a full colony on Mars with terraforming. (probably be something close to sub desert terrain). The Death Star would have to be placed somewhere out around Pluto’s orbit. ….. And what would we be blowing up anyways?

    I hope in between all that inane sci fi chatter you guys noticed how awesomely this strip is drawn this week – and that dog in the middle! Priceless!

    @Burnside217

    Considering the technology of the Star Wars universe is both more advanced and fictional should start the conversation off. Then the fact they you resources from many planets not just one.

    @phritzg

    Defense spending has been offensive for some time. The USA is the Empire and it is mutually hated for what it has done.

    @Hunter7

    See the Star Trek episode. “The Doomsday Machine” for your answer.
