The Death Star, undoubtedly a worthwhile undertaking but not on the Obama administration's radar, is now on Kickstarter if you want to help build one.
A recent White House Death Star petition was denied, citing Obama's “we don’t blow up planets” political stance and the potential fiscal nightmare.
Now, a new Kickstarter project wants to pick up those plans, using an open source design effort and trying to raise funding to help make it happen.
A LOT of funding.
The project has a $30,000,000 funding goal, which would be used to create “more detailed plans” than the initial design the team currently has.
Yes ... 30 million just to design the thing.
No one said it would be easy, or that the potential defense system is without flaws. As we know, a single X-Wing fighter can basically defeat the thing.
If the Kickstarter project reaches its long-term goal - $850,000,000,000,000,000 - plans will actually be put to use building a full-scale, working Death Star.
They hope to have the project up and running by December 2015. No word on whether it would be used to protect the whole world or just the U.S.
Something for sexy beast Kim Jong Un to ponder before his next failed missile test or scary / cheaply produced anti-American North Korea video.
