    So when are the men in white coats coming to take you back to the happy house? No just playing, HEED THE WARNING!!!!!!

  2. TheTinFoilHatKeepsOutTheGovernment says:

    It’s obviously a sign from extraterrestrials telling us that there is grave danger coming in 2012 and that we must obey. It’s so obvious and we would be foolish not to heed this warning.
