I got a T-shirt showing Deadpool sitting on The Iron Throne.

You explain to me your shirt's message and I'll explain to you mine.

Camus undertakes the task of answering what he considers to be the only question of philosophy that matters: Does the realization of the meaninglessness and absurdity of life necessarily require suicide?


Personally I never could relate to people who get all depressed over the realization that the universe is nihilistic and meaningless. Are these people simply more prone to depression than average?

Couldn't agree more. Which is why I'm a fan of absurdism. Camus argues that when you realize the meaninglessness of life you have three reactions:
1. Mental Suicide - taking up a religious faith
2. Physical Suicide - killing yourslef
3. Embrace the absurd and meaningless nature of things for what it is.

I choose option 3. Amor Fati
