Star Wars Fails Engineering

This is awesome:

Sure, he's cute, but the flaws in his design are obvious the first time he approaches anything but the shallowest of stairs. Also: He has jets, a periscope, a taser and oil canisters to make enforcer droids fall about in slapsticky fashion -- and no voice synthesizer. Imagine that design conversation: "Yes, we can afford slapstick oil and tasers, but we'll never get a 30-cent voice chip past accounting. That's just madness."

Even more awesome, though, is the fanboy responses on Slashdot which fail even more miserably at having any kind of sense of humor about their dear fictional universe.
