    My Fiance

    My Fiance had this dream of an uber tall dark shadowy figure, ever since then he literally doesn't't dream. No its not that we don't remember our dreams, He just sees pitch black whenever he does sleep. Why and or How is this sh*t possible?

    Of course it must be stopped. Only a religious freak and right-wing nut would even question the need by this point, which says all there is to say.
