“It's not my fault!”
Hey guys. It's me. The guy who put the exhaust ports on the Death Star.
I know, I know—
“What a stupid design flaw!”
“You are singlehandedly responsible for the destruction of our ultimate weapon and battlestation!”
“How could anyone have made such a huge mistake?!”
Over the past week, I've gotten a lot of guff from people I considered to be friends and colleagues about how my “shoddy” design would be the downfall of our entire government. Not only that, but I've been forced-choked (and regular-choked) by more superiors than I can count (and Human Resources have been very relunctant to respond to my complaints about being invisibly strangled by a cyborg space wizard). But I have one response to all of you who blame for the destruction of the Death Star:
Via Flutterby, An Open Letter From a Death Star Architect - Dorkly Article
And yes, you'll have to read it to find out what the Death Star architect's response was. And yes, the architect has a point—it's not like anyone could have forseen such events.
I mean, what are the chances?
