    It's when you dream who you'd like to be...that, or since the letter 's' is next to 'd' on a keyboard, me-thinks it's a typo.

    Seriously, the American dream isn't dead--anybody who has a good or novel idea can make money. Great example: the guy who "invented" the Pet Rock back in the 1970s--he made millions off of people buying rocks. (If that isn't truly American I don't know what is.) In fact, it's now being offered in a USB version: http://www.thinkgeek.com/geektoys/cubegoodies/c208/

    id. Human psyche.

    Basically the OP is about what makes you... Well, you or the view of your place in the eyes of others.
