The White House is quadrupling the number of signatures required for online petitions, after a Colorado man’s proposal to build a Death Star hit the previous threshold.
“John D” from Longmont posted a petition on the White House website for the government to “begin construction of a Death Star by 2016.”
The fictional Death Star, a moon-sized super-weapon capable of destroying a populated planet with its super-laser, debuted in the first Star Wars movie in 1977.
The petition got 32,000 signatures.
Earlier this week, the government shot down the Death Star proposal, in an official response entitled “This isn’t the petition response you’re looking for.”
The White House outlined a few reasons why the construction of a Death Star isn’t going to fly, including the estimated cost of $850 quadrillion.
