Galactic Empire mocks Earth over U.S. decision to not build Death Star

Quote:
IMPERIAL CENTER, CORUSCANT – The overwhelming military superiority of the Galactic Empire has been confirmed once again by the recent announcement by the President of the United States that his nation would not attempt to build a Death Star, despite the bellicose demands of the people of his tiny, aggressive planet. “It is doubtless that such a technological terror in the hands of so primitive a world would be used to upset the peace and sanctity of the citizens of the Galactic Empire,“ said Governor Wilhuff Tarkin of the Outer Rim Territories. “Such destructive power can only be wielded to protect and defend by so enlightened a leader as Emperor Palpatine.”

Representatives on behalf of the nation-state leader from the unimaginatively named planet refused to acknowledge the obvious cowardice of their choice, preferring instead to attribute the decision to fiscal responsibility. “The costs of construction they cited were ridiculously overestimated, though I suppose we must keep in mind that this miniscule planet does not have our massive means of production,” added Admiral Conan Motti of the Imperial Starfleet.

Emissaries of the Emperor also caution any seditious elements within the Galactic Senate not to believe Earth’s exaggerated claims of there being a weakness in the Death Star design. “Any attacks made upon such a station — should one ever be built — would be a useless gesture,” added Motti.

White House in Disappointing Death Star Rebuff

The last bit of it:

....More to the point, however, no design is ever perfect. The real challenge – and benefit – in the Death Star project lies in the potential to find and solve existing problems, develop new technologies, and to invent and discover new and useful processes, machines, manufactures, and compositions of matter, along with new and useful improvements thereof. Because that is the kind of thinking that once made America great, and the kind of thinking that is needed to make America great once again!

DUTY!

So yes, Mr President, not only can you build a Death Star, it is your duty to do so as an American, and a citizen of Earth!

Help us, Barack Obama – you’re our only hope.

Looooong term project. By then we can probably transfere the population to the Death Star and mine water from other bodies in the solar system. We'd have time to get there and back again.

Man run over, killed, when dog jumps into car, pushes accelerator

Quote:
CANTONMENT, Fla. -
A man has died after a dog jumped into a van, stepped on the accelerator and struck him as he opened a gate outside a Florida Panhandle home, according to officials.

The Florida Highway Patrol says Iris Fortner, 56, and James Campbell, 68, were backing into their driveway at their home in Cantonment on Monday when Campbell got out of the passenger side of the vehicle to open the metal gates

Mouse released into wild snatched by hawk, ruins good deed (video):

"An unidentified cadet at West Point, no doubt an animal lover, was just trying to
do the right thing when his act of kindness went horribly wrong. Apparently, a
mouse had taken up residency in his barrack. He finally trapped the little guy he
called Whiskers and transported him via trash can to an open field. He then
released the critter, telling it "good luck." Unfortunately for the mouse, this
happened:"

Circle of life, right there. Perhaps the hawk was starving and would have died without his act?

Ohio ex-teacher sues, says she fears young kids

CINCINNATI (AP) -- A former high school teacher is accusing school district administrators of discriminating against her because of a rare phobia she says she has: a fear of young children.

Ah yes this story. So apparently the high-school teacher has a phobia of young children, despite her profession she willingly took up. So when the administration went ahead to assign her to middle-school teacher despite knowing her phobia and being vouched by several psychiatrists and doctors in court, she is claiming discrimination because of it.

Well to be fair, middle schooler (especially boys) tend to be considered inhuman by a lot of teachers (the beginning stages of puberty is rough).

Well if we keep the leashes off their male teachers, they wouldn't be considered so.

A good hard smack to the head for those stupid moments are totally worth it.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.
