Hey, Buddy, Can You Spare $15,602,022,489,829,821,422,840,226.94?   2 comments

A very oversimplified cost estimate for the Death Star over at Gizmodo.

Of course, this is ridiculous.  If you were building a Death Star, you certainly wouldn’t bother trying to schlep the raw materials up out of the gravity well of the Earth.  You immediately cut $12.79 septillion out of your cost estimate if you just start mining asteroids.  That’s an almost 82% reduction out of this budget, right there.

Come on, Gizmodo.  You can’t give a guy huge nerd points when they miss such a blatantly obvious scrounging opportunity.

  1. I love you Pat. In a purely platonic, sisterly way. But oh, I love you.

  2. I take it you’re assuming the death star is not being built by GM?
