On another forum we made a funny little joke about what nations would do if they tried to build the deathstar in relation to how their country normally does things.

If they tried to build the deathstar...

I said if the US tried, it would probably not finish it and it wouldnt work if they did
A UK guy said that "if the UK tried, it would be a fabulous piece of engineering but it would cost 10 times what it should and we'd be forced to sell it to the Germans."
Antarctica's deathstar will be made out of penguin skeletons


Insert your favorite country and how they would screw it up! That antarctica one wasnt in good taste as far as im concerned :grumpy:

If it was built in Finland, it would be filled with toilet paper.

If the French built the deathstar it would be highly fortified, but easily bypassed.

If the Indian built the deathstar it would smell like curry, even from space.

If the Chinese built the deathstar you could crack it open and see your fortune.

If Microsoft built the deathstar it would allow the rebel forces in without conflict.

If Micheal Jackson built the deathstar it would collapse on itself.

If it was built in:

California - it would be called high profile and biologically challenging. The energy ray would have to conform as a class C firework.

Texas - it would be a lot bigger but with nothing in it.

Florida - it would be filled with retired people.

Oregon - it would be an Indian Casino and spotted owl zapper.

Michigan -it would be, well, cold.

Montana -it would be Ted and Jane Turner's house

Arizona - it would be there but nobody would go there.

Idaho - it would be KKK headquarters

If China built it, it would be fully functional, exactly as specified, produced on time, on budget, with no engineering or financial difficulties encountered at all.

Oh no wait, we're supposed to be joking here.

If it were to be built in Norway, the whole project would have foundered due to a quarrel of whether the operation manual should be written in Standard Norwegian or New Norwegian

........ there isn't any left :confused: :rofl:

'Seriously', if it was built in Finland, national uproar would dictate it be taken to use as an orbiting moonshine boiler rather than the 'actual' purpose.

Good ones Ivan! I just wanted to make a couple of modifications:

Florida - it would be filled with retired people.
...and continuosly travel the solar system with it's left turn signal on.
Ivan Seeking said:
Michigan -it would be, well, cold.
...and take three times longer than planned because the United Deathstar Worker's Unions would renegotiate their contracts four times during the process.

Lets wait and see how the Three Rivers Dam project goes before we jump to that conclusion! :biggrin:

OH NO YOU DIH-INT!! You did NOT go there!

If it was built by Houstonians it would have the bestest air conditioning and the highest power bills....and it would smell like Stinkadena and all the inhabitants would have asthma. AND Ross Perot would claim credit for it.

If it was made in the U.S., Europeans would rave about how much deadlier it would be were it made in Europe. Canadians would insist that they could have made it if it wasn't for the Bush administration.

If built in Australia, we'd put on fake weapons to make it look really 'killer'.

Every deck would have a large pool with wave generator for surfing and a well stocked bar. :biggrin:

Then we would go exploring the universe for the ultimate wave. :biggrin:

If it was built in Belgium, there would be 3 languages spoken on it and no one would be able to speak more than 1 language except a small area where people would speak 2 of these languages and would fight to decide which languages to speak... :shy:

Ow, not funny ? Not easy to understand ? That's the same for me, but however that's what apparently happens in my country...

If women built the deathstar...uh...yeah, like they could build a deathstar :rofl:
 
If it were up to the Irish the designers would still be in the pub arguing about how to build it, the Catholics and the Protestants would be fighting over it, and the IRA would be devising a plan to blow London off the map.

Oh, we'd build it alright, but it would use a testosterone detector for targeting and would only work once a month. :tongue2:

And then it would break a week later. :rofl:

If the US built it, Bush would probably order it fired at Bin Laden's most likely location and end up blowing up the planet.

If men built it, we couldn't find anything we wanted to destroy, and we certainly won't ask for directions! Besides, we forgot to make a remote, and we'd be too lazy to get up and press the button if we got there.
