By now you have probably already heard about how there was a petition made to the Whitehouse to build a Death Star, and they politely said no. However, it seems that there is no stopping these forces of evil, as they have taken to everyone’s favourite crowd funding website: Kickstarter!
They want the nice (BAD) people of the world to contribute a cool 20 million of their hard earned money so that they can use their forced to build one. Actually, they need a lot more, but the first 20 million will help them create the blue prints as well as get some chicken wire that will protect ‘THAT’ exhaust port. They imagine the actual project will cost about $850 zillion, and it will be all open source. The only risks that exist are that from the Force.
Not too far behind, are the rebel forces. They too need protection, and because the Senate has fallen into the evil hands of the Empire, they cannot ask out for help. They have had to put together the little sources they had and turn it into a project as well. Of course, the biggest strength they have is that of the Force, and the Jedis that come with it. They want to finance a prototype of an X-Wing and train a pilot. They ask for a lot less than the dark side, and they think they can make one in a cool 11 million!
While all in good humour, they are quite serious about how much of a joke this is. Don’t believe me? Give it a click!
