well if my world where 3 massive crafts from andromeda are coming are nothing more then a world of wild imagination I'll stay here. it sure as hell beats the current real world with all it's problems. I can accept being a dreamer, the world has allways been full of fools and dreamers so I guess I'm in pretty good company. How ever I do feel and it's a gut feeling that in December 2012 we will make full contact with crafts and aliens from another solar system.
