the sun's increased gravitational pull destroyed the government's ability to holographically project the fake moon decades ago... that was the turning point... the drifting land masses, which were pretty much all of them now, slowly drew closer to the incineration point as the long gone elite monitored the planet's demise from the safety of their constructed sanctuary, the galaxtar... bastards!!
it's not like me to be neglectful in thanking you guys for your comments and hearts in particular, but this one got away from me! too many hearts to copy and paste in at this point, so please allow me to just say a sincere thanks for your praise, the feature, and yes, all the hearts!!
love you guys!
