That's a rather bleak and cynical outlook, I must say. I know that I don't know what happens to me after I die, but apart from this _scio ut nescio_ I firmly believe that we are here with a purpose, namely to make the world a better and more beautiful place. And that means that we *should* care about the rest of the world, even beyond our own lifespans. ... brought to you by the Weeping Elf
