Why So Serious?
If a solar flare wipes out all of our electronics tomorrow, then playing games won't be waste at all. It's like spending your last days on earth doing the things you like. And that sometimes means doing shit that is impractical and often a waist of your time. I cherish the moments when I lay on the couch in my underwear, netflix playing, a microwavable meal delight on the table in front of me and no care at all. One could say to me "I'll be ready when the time comes and you won't because your a lazy dumbass." I would respond by saying that "I am free to pursue happiness and life however I wish so long as it is not in conflict with others freedom to do so as well." I must clarify that couch loafing isn't the only thing I do. But I do contend that it is time well spent. I may be grossly unprepared but that doesn't necessarily mean that one who has prepared, has a greater survivability rate. In the end, each persons survival rate reaches zero.
Waist time doing things that do not make sense to others. Prepare all you can until the doomsday comes. Just remember that we don't have to "get serious" and abandon fun. When you hear the phrase "this is serious" or your environment gets "serious" remind yourself of these immortal words spoken by the Joker "Why so serious?"
