LOLing: Death Star conspiracy revealed

Ok, even I think this is a little geeky but it's a story that has to be told.

There are simply too many unanswered questions about the destruction of the Death Star and the "established facts" of the case. (This is a Star Wars thing, for my less sci-fi enamoured friends out there).

This website - Websurdity - lifts the lid on a range of issues that must be told.

5) Why did Lord Vader decide to break all protocols and personally pilot a lightly armored TIE Fighter? Conveniently, this placed Lord Vader outside of the Death Star when it was destroyed, where he was also conveniently able to escape from a large-sized rebel fleet that had just routed the Imperial forces. Why would Lord Vader, one of the highest ranking members of the Imperial Government, suddenly decide to fly away from the Death Star in the middle of a battle? Did he know something that the rest of the Imperial Navy didn’t?

There are also a range of very funny (and admittedly some disturbingly geeky) comments about this site here on Digg.com
