Think about it.

I’m no longer subscribing to the belief that Mother Nature exists. No, I believe she’s been horribly & painfully killed and replaced by a Cardassian (not Kardashian).

In light of this discovery, I will be combatting the forces of the Dominion with homemade turkey & bean chili. Take THAT, evildoers!

Yes, I’m a bit of a nerd.
