Star Wars!


Thank you for joining us for a special episode of Nerdy By Nature. We’re celebrating the Star Wars 40th anniversary by going boldly where (almost) no one has boldly gone before.

Amazing technology is always rather expensive – especially if you don’t have the ability to mass produce Star Wars technology (who knew?).

Hypothetically speaking, we call our local Death Star Salesperson and order the Death Star.

Death Star
Before we go to the Bank to get a small loan, you will first need to consider it’s size. Unfortunately the (pretend) Salesperson forgot to mention a small detail.  This galactic super weapon is, well, 100 kilometres in diameter (the spherical space station is included free of charge). So, you’ll need to get a bigger garage.




Now that you’ve invested in adequate storage, you’ll need to make sure you get your numbers straight. You see, this glorified laser beam costs a whopping 7.7 octillion Dollars for a twenty-four hour run time.  I mean, it’s not that bad, right? There are 7 octillion atoms in the human body.  Unfortunately, this amount of money is 30 trillion times more cash then we have on Earth.


Holy sh*t.


Imagine what taxes would be on that bad boy? In Canada, we have 13% sales tax. Not cool, Trudeau. Not cool.
Listen to us take a different angle on Star Wars, while we try to envision all or any practicality in this technology being used in 2017.
What Star Wars technology do you wish you had? Let us know on social media by searching @letusgetnerdy on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
