    Are there any normal users here? How would you even know?

    Because what-ever creator you might believe in has a sense of humor and needs a good laugh now and then. ;)

    No, that is specifically the answer to life the universe and everything. Templarseeker's question was slightly different. Good try though.

    Given that "everything" is what it answers, 42 is an appropriate answer for any question. Including "Why?" for which I was sorely disappointed to not find it among the direct answers.

    Whoever that creator is. He has a sick sense of humor and I really want to give him a piece of my mind!
    I want to file a complain to God and tell him to go screw himself... More or less...


    Hmm... So life is a "Joke" then.... Never expected that...

    Why are we even alive in this malevolent world filled with sorrow and despair... :rolleyes:

    In the beginning there was only the Word...
    And the Word was "Ooops!"
    followed shortly by "bugger"
    and a bit later by "Oh sod it."
    Which I believe explains quit a bit about life, the universe, and God.
    (paraphrased from somebody's Usenet sig back in the '90s. I can't recall their handle.)

    Personally I believe we're all just a bunch of AI, created by some teenage alien technology geek, to entertain itself and avoid having to clean the rocket garage.

    Of course not, we're simulations of a centuries old Mind AI from an alien Culture.

    This is all just a reality show to entertain somebody.

    The thing is; that ultimately we only have ourselves to blame. We insist on making the same mistakes over and over with the belief that next time something different will result. It's that running gag that happens so often you start to get bored with it and it's not funny anymore at all.

    There is a supposedly false quote attributed to Einstein that goes "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result." There was somebody else who said "the only thing we learn from history; is we don't learn anything from history." It's a human foible that we keep doing the same thing over and over again believing that eventually we'll get it right. On the other hand it's a survival trait us humans have had to learn. Most of us guys would never get girlfriends or wives if we only tried romancing a girl once; failed; and gave up. We need to keep sticking our heart into that meat-grinder over and over until we find the right girl. Or at least the one who is dumb enough to fall for our lines. Girls on the other hand give up too quickly; they too often end up falling for guys that are just wrong for them. ;)
