Recently I found an article online about "Everything that's wrong with the Death Star trash compactor". I love reading articles like that because every so often it's nice to have a good laugh at some of the pretty obvious ridiculous things in the Star Wars universe. I even love how the writer of the article defended the placement of the trash compactor and how it would be actually useful in it's placement in the Death Star cell blocks. It's an interesting perspective on something you might now have thought of, so check it out!
