Secret to a Happy Existence

Accepting That You Don’t Matter

(originally published on Xanga January 17, 2011)


We live on a planet that is eventually going to be swallowed by the sun and nothing you’ve ever said, thought, done, or achieved will matter. If the life work of our greatest scientists and intellectuals will mean nothing, then what makes you think your silly thoughts are worth an ounce of cow piss? Put down the razor, take the needle off the Joy Division record, and go enjoy your meaningless life instead of demanding tolerance and compassion from the rest of us.

Fuck you all, everybody.


grrrrrrrrrr!  oh yeah

Oooooooh, I see.  You’re a “nihilist.”

See, I enjoy being ignorant of my own utter worthlessness.

I’m more happy that way.  But feel free to borrow my 1911 if you’re in the mood to off yourself.

That was really comforting…but why do we need to stop listening to Joy Division if none of it matters anyway?

but people could also say “well, if the world is going to end, then what we do is the only thing that matters. so why prepare for a future that will lead nowhere?” and then chaos ensues.

Going by what you posted, since you wrote that the sun’s gonna eat our planet alive, the only thing that matters is to hail to the sun god > Ra.

Ra! Ra! Uh uh uh, Rum-a Rum-a-a!…lol

If it’s all so pointless, why bother trying to enjoy yourself?

I mean, there’s inevitably going to be some pretty crappy experiences. You need to eat in order to have the energy to enjoy yourself properly, but food costs money or some other equitable good. That means you’re going to have to work, which means you will inevitably stress. In order to relieve stress, you’re going to need a place to relax, which means renting or owning suitable shelter. Then there’s possessions and bills and taxes and politics and all the other things that come with being a participant in modern society.

Seems like enjoying yourself is an awful lot of work. All that work… for nothing. We should all just give up and sit in a corner somewhere until it’s over.

You first, big guy.

@asleepinblue – Then don’t. It’s just a suggestion. Joy Division is to cutting what Barry White is to fucking. If you wish to wring any sort of happiness from your meaningless existence, avoiding sunlight and slicing yourself just doesn’t seem like the best way to go about it.  I’m just saying.
