...Why are we here..?
I'm sure you have noticed how people seem compelled to ask why we are here, when contemplating a moonless sky on a Starry Starry Night. Perhaps you yourself have asked that very same question, on such a twinkling occasion!
Well, to answer that question: I'd say you're here looking up at the sky, because you want to be here looking up at the sky. Right? (What, you wanna go home..?! We just got here!)
...oh, you had a larger scope in mind, asking that question...
No no no NO! That's not what you mean, AT ALL..! ...WHY ... are
we here...! Is what you want to know.

For motivation, you see, you need a person. And the Universe, I think
you'll agree, is not a person.
So next time when you look up at the stars, don't go asking silly silly
questions, and instead just make up your mind what purpose you're gonna
give to your own life, because the Universe itself certainly has none
for you by default.
Bor & Stampy are
brought to you on an irregular basis, and in two parts (with the second
part added to the first part), on account of the artist keeping up with
his own life too.
