Existential Comics does Tweets


Cool. I just found out that the dude over at Existential Comics has a fantastic Twitter feed. Below are some choice tweets from the past couple of months.

     The thing I most admire about the Ancient Greeks is that they didn't bother with pants. That's how you know they were in a golden age.

    I heard that if you look in the mirror and say "Kierkegaard" three times, you'll realize that you are wasting your life on trivialities.

    Protip: not believing in God doesn't suddenly make you an expert on...anything.

    And then at the end of the movie the hot girl put on glasses, and everyone realized that she was smart the whole time.

    I thought I was gazing into the abyss, but it turned out that it was just a mirror.

    Self driving cars are cool, I guess, but is there some way that I can drive the car and the robot can do the rest of my life?

    Intelligence is being able to come up with witty tweets. Wisdom is knowing that you are wasting your life on twitter.

    "Why does philosophy matter?" "I don't know, why does science matter?" "Well because scie-" "Annnnnnnd you are doing philosophy."

    I gazed deeply, longingly into the abyss, and the abyss gazed also into me. It was love at first sight.

    "Why did you unfollow me?" "You tweet too much." "But how much is too much?" "It depends on the person, but for you I'd say one tweet."

    I only drink coffee on the days I really need it. Such as every day.

    Remember, you don't have to do anything that you don't want to. Except be free.

    What I don't understand about history is that there were apparently entire advanced civilizations that existed without coffee.

    After studying a bit of history, you start to wonder if humanity wouldn't be better off without itself.

    I should write a cookbook. Step 1: cook whatever. Step 2: realize that all pleasure is fleeting. Step 3: despair in the finitude of life.

    I took a personality test, it said I was the type who doesn't believe in personality tests. Those things are more accurate than I thought…

    They should put answer sheets in the back of philosophy books.

    Live life neurotically obsessed with whether or not you are living life to the fullest.

    Right, compared to STEM the humanities totally aren't important. I mean…unless you want to understand humanity, obviously. But that's dumb.

    [Man dying] Tell…my wife…to erase my hard drive.

    Sisyphus is actually a pretty cool guy, once you get around the whole "obsessed with boulders" thing.
