    Academia is the most depressing. When you find out What is really going on by reading fine academic Texts you see how things are and as a result it can depress the life out of you; unless you engage in acts of stupid levity. On the other hand Academia is most cheering, cos if you know what's what you can look to negotiate the challenges of this particularly depressing Landscape. Factoring many factors ie Bankers Crisis, Eurozone Bailouts , suicides of Benefits clamants and Bankers and FTSE CEO getting richer and richer. Indeed the fact that English Rich List wealth has increased by £60bn last year is enough to make you sad enough to hit the bottle etc whatever is your poison.

    Hope both offerings were sufficiently depressing. I could add Alcoholism and multiple drug use, vulnerabilites of users,to add to depressing pile.

    Here I sit in a pile of spit licking crumbs from my hand. I do not know when I'll next see daylight, For I'm a forlorn contraband not exactly sure what that was... my own little contribution to the pile of spit :)

    Are we just gonna sink into [depressing] Voltairian Relativistic Fantasy here. Suffering is suffering. But if we are gonna produce suffering to order for our Wizard friend then at least we must make our most nightmarish efforts. :)

    There was once a man in- I believe it was Virginia. He was a good man; no, in fact, outstanding. An amazing husband to his wife and father to his two daughters and son. He did everything a good christian man should, followed the Bible as well as he kid, and had been awarded with several promotions as a police officer. May have even been chief of police. I can't quite remember... Well, anyways, one day his daughters left for bible camp. It was an ordinary experience, at first- that is, until one of the preachers running the camp convinced them to come up and admit all the horrible things their father had done to them. Got them to admit the rape, molestation, and abuse. When the girls went home, they confronted their father. Reported him. And he was arrested. It wasn't too long until the outstanding 'interrogation techniques' of the local police force had his wife and son accusing him of the same things. Now, the father had his family, coworkers, friends, the members of his community, the people he went to church with every Sunday, staring horrified at all the things he had done. And then, when put under the tactics and pressure of his colleagues, he cracked. He confessed it all; even admitted to Satanic rituals, slaughtering infants, and abducting young girls (none of which had ever been reported as crimes, by the way). He was locked up. For a long, long time. It wasn't until too late that the force's psychologist caught on to something- the fact that this all fit perfectly under the qualifications of cult brainwashing. See, the 'preacher' at bible camp had been very good at what he convincing people, just not of God's love. And the police officers? Well, they're also extremely good at convincing people of what they want to hear. So, through the combined efforts of our good ol' police force and a manipulative cult leader, this innocent man spent a good twenty years in prison; it wasn't easy to get him out, you see. This memory manipulation happens, and it happens all too frequently. People admit to crimes because they're convinced they did it, an entire community will turn against a good, innocent man. Because these people know how fragile and uncertain a memory really is, and just how easily it is to plant one in your head. It could happen to any one of us, and likely, we would never know. That thought depressing enough?:D

    First three stanzas of a sestina I wrote. The next three lessen the depressing force of it so I'm only posting the first three. Dinner time Time and time only turns the clock Day after day I sit on this chair Hoping someone would come to the door. The food I've prepared lying on the table To be untouched and to be put away. To be taken away from the light. I however remain exposed in the light Viewing the hands on the clock A sight that I can't put away Looking at an empty chair Looking at an empty table Because no one is at the door. And as I look through the door, At a far off house I see a light With a family gathered at a table All ignoring the clock Each filling a chair None of them turning away.

    @Free, tl;dr It's depressing that an English major won't take the time to read your post.

    @Free the unseemingly unlimited explorations of Evil: what should be good is bad and rotten to the core. I also believe GOOD follows a similar path. Man and Mankind can be unbelievably good. Important to look for and preferably build on if possible to counter assaults of bad.

    seriously sacsquatch- I'm pro-choice- but aborted babies are not hilarious. Really sad, even if some are neccesary, it's still tragic.

    @sacsquatch What's more hilarious than an aborted baby? A kid with down syndrome next to an aborted baby.

    @gandalfwhiz I sense this is a deep philosophical investigation in which case Relativatism will only sink arguments. All suffering is bad but more important is it recognised and acted upon? surely representation and suffering is a better argument depressing wise?

    Some people have accused my humor of being contorted but I truly believe life to be a farce. Everything should and will be laughed at. Does that mean I have no empathy? Maybe to some. I don't really care. Obviously 123goldie also finds humor in dark places, but I would not assume that 123goldie lacks empathy. That being said I do think jokes about Anne Frank, Helen Keller, and dead babies to be humor at its finest. Life is farcical, so treat it accordingly.

    life is a laugh, but life should also be taken seriously and responsibly. discipline yourself on how much joking you do, but when things get solemn, you know also when to be solemn or not

    "Humor is perhaps a sense of intellectual perspective: an awareness that some things are really important, others not; and that the two kinds are most oddly jumbled in everyday affairs." -Christopher Morley Part of the reason I believe that laughter is valid anytime. Value and importance are huge sources of humor for me.
