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".

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!
