Pssh, Science. What has science ever done for us? Well, maybe it has done some good, but when it points out things that go against the platform of my "don't think, follow along with what we tell you" political party, well then I must draw the line.
Drill baby drill! Drill baby drill! Drill baby drill!....

I believe in Unicorns and pots of gold at the end of rainbows.
I believe that if we would just hug the world it would hug us back.
I believe that there is such a thing as something for nothing.
I believe in the "Yes we can", and the "Hope and Change".

How many pieces of string would it take to reach the moon?
One, it it was long enough.

Exactly steve, another Unicorn pipe dream...just like evolution and a woman's hidden ability to shut down her body and prevent impregnation during a legitimate rape. Science will NEVER help solve our energy issues. Drill Baby Drill! Drill Baby Drill!
