As of today, the White House will have to take the petition to build a Death Star (somewhat) more seriously. According to the White House's policy, petitions that "reach 25,000 signatures within 30 days" require a response. The Death Star petition was opened Nov. 14, 2012 and passed 25,000 signatures today, just making the cut off.

If we do get our Death Star, then perhaps Americans will wage an intergalactic war with the hundreds of thousands of Jedi still using the Force in England.
