In the “weird tech news” category, Obama will now be forced to respond to the rather insane petition to create a Death Star of our own by 2016, now that said petition has received the required 25,000 signatures needed for an office reply. What started out as a joke (at least it seemed like a joke!) will now require the United States President to take make an official reply to the petitioners. Will Obama consider the request? That remains to be seen!
