so have I accomplished what I set out to do? not exactly:)... but it was fun looking at these things; I just got a bit too negative at the end for no good reason... so I'm ending this blog with a somewhat unrelated existential song, that I found in the most unlikely place: Romanian rap! "[Life is a] bad joke!" by Parazitii/The parasites (the lyrics are just horrendous but... the message redeems the song for me... although I wouldn't listen to this song more than once:) --> great message!
P.S. a reminder to self that I should be spending more time on my existential blog. D.
