    Default The Futility of Life

    Today I re-watched Troy. Not very good apart from fight scenes, but there was a line of dialogue that I found striking; when Achilles' mother says:
    "If you remain in Lorissa...you will have sons and daughters, and they will love you, and when you are gone they will remember you. But when your children are dead, and their children after them, your name will be lost."
    Maybe it's because it's a holiday, but that put me in a melancholy mood. Everyone dies eventually; but what's the purpose in life if no one will ever remember our existence in a few generations? Unless you're someone like Gandhi or Hitler(i.e. done something so great that you're name will be burnt into history forever) no one will ever know who you were and what you did, even if it's recorded in paperwork somewhere.
    I'M NO HERO, BELIEVE IT!

    Most things don't last forever. Have your fun now and don't worry about history.

    Wake up, take a shower, eat breakfast, go to work/school, eat lunch, socialise, go back home, take a shower, eat dinner, masturbate, go to sleep.

    Do that every day, with some minor variations. That shall be your purpose in life (i.e. nothing in particular).

    11 Shots a day? That's some serious dedication.

    See kids? That's how you wear it out.

    ...Why do people need to feel like they live for some sort of purpose? I seriously don't understand. What's so difficult to accept about these facts?
