Units by Balakov Units by Balakov
Units are very important.

Due to a small problem with the plans the original Death Star was built 100,000 times too small. Although, technically, a fully operational battle station, the scaled down power of the superlaser only enabled this first version to destroy small to medium-sized fruit.

Unfortunately the Empire's first attempt at a planet-obliterating superweapon was destroyed when the cleaning lady accidentally knocked it over while vacuuming.

Brilliant. Sometimes things happen where you can't understand how this even is possible to happen. :jawdrop:

I normally do. It's just a bit of clone stamping though, nothing too hard :)

And that is why math is very important in life. One decimal point place DOES make a difference. Especially if your making a machine of doom. For the record, math is also the most difficult subject for me.
