The past is gone and misremembered. The future is a projection of your imagination. The present is all that is real. Be depressed there.

Jokes on you. I'm depressed in/because of all three!

The funniest thing about this is that you could use the same reasons to not be depressed. Radical acceptance!

My EXACT thought when I saw this was that this is why so many therapies (including Dialectal Behavior Therapy) teach mindfulness / awareness and participation in the present moment. It literally makes you feel less depressed and more empowered.

Booooooooo. Doomerism is dumb. You're dumb.

⚠️ Caution Sharp Edges ⚠️Why be depressed when you can just kill yourself?

Sir, the possibility of successfully navigating an asteroid field is approximately 3,720 to 1!

Humanity has never seen problems like climate change or the adverse effects of poor application of tech to communications. I've little clue if humanity can recover from whatever the fuck mess we've made. I think no one really knows what's going to happen.

...there is at least the possibility, if not the probability, of changing intolerable conditions. This possibility is important, because much in human existence is based upon hope without any real understanding of the odds.

I choose to believe there's a chance because, for me individually, the alternative very reasonably concludes in my prompt non-existence.

I think no one really knows what’s going to happen.

Agreed. There's no historical precedent for this. I do think that humanity dying out completely is very unlikely unless everywhere on the entire planet is rendered completely uninhabitable. Humans are very adaptable. Our civilizations falling and becoming a Mad Max-style world, though? Quite plausible. Us getting our shit together and avoiding that? Also plausible, but the odds look bleaker by the day. You should stick around as long as possible regardless, though. Even if we fuck it all up, someday we might be able to come back from it! We already almost went extinct once.

You admit our ignorance. You then recommended I make a blind decision, likely to help yourself feel better about yours.

No. I value my freedom to choose, particularly considering what we face.

Memes that are too meirl for /c/meirl.


  1. Respect the community. If you're not into self-deprecating/dark/suicidal humor then this place isn't for you. Kindly just block and move on. This is just how some of us cope.

  2. Respect one another.

  3. All titles must begin with 2meirl4meirl. This is for multiple reasons. One is just so you can be lazy with titles but another is so people who aren't into this kind of humor can avoid it.

  4. Otherwise just the general no bigotry, no dickishness, no spam, no malice, etc stuff.

Sidebar will be updated when I feel like and considering I'm Sadboi extraordinaire we'll see when that will be.
