    I find it most saddening that

    so many people will convince themselves that things like vampires, Druids, and lucky socks exist. But those same people scoff when you mention God. I ask them why, and the surprisingly ironic response is always "he's just make believe" or "that's just a story forcefield to...

    Prayers are always answered.
