Rob Ford didn’t choose the thug life, the thug life chose him.
So, I was thinking about Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope.
*Spoiler Warning* - for anyone that’s never heard of Star Wars, I guess.
The rebels get a hold of the plans for the Death Star and they discover that there’s a weak point, that’s accessible from the exterior of the station.
So, they come up with a plan to send in small fighters to fly along the trench, fire into a little tiny target to blow up the station.
Now I’m not sure how many pilots fly in, but like two make it out.
So this got me thinking, what could they have done to make this easier on themselves?
It dawned on me: Send troops to the surface of the Death Star.
Get people down on the surface and deliver the ordinance manually, I think this would have been much easier than flying down a trench, then shooting into a 2 meter hole in the wall.
It’s almost too simple and it bothers me that no one in the Rebel Alliance put a little more thought into improving their odds.
