i've been watching loads of movies lately, loads of heart-racing-without-being-action-thrillers, spill-your-guts-out-i-never-thought-you-had-it-in-you, if-i-never-knew-what-to-expect-i-dont-know-what-to-say-about-this, people-are-so-strange-my!-i-love-people-so-much kind of movies. mostly scandinavian, but not only.

and that's it. i've talked about my routines without having a point many times, and this time is no different. except that this time i'll end with a line from one of the movies. the we-seem-happy-together-omg-we-have-no-idea-who-we-are-who-are-we-is-this-who-we-are-it-really-doesnt-matter-just-live-pac-pac one.

"We're emotional illiterates. We've been taught about anatomy and farming methods in Africa. We've learned mathematical formulas by heart. But we haven't been taught a thing about our souls. We're tremendously ignorant about what makes people tick. "

And it made me wonder. But not like my "whoa, airplanes, how do they do it?" or "what's up with the dutch, anyway?" dilemmas. In a different way.
