That just reminds me of one of my favorite comics: http://www.smbc-comics.com/?id=1543I had a friend in grad school who, whenever I was sick of being a grad student, would tell me "well, you should have made peace with the absurdity of human existence before we left the house!"
I love that comic. Maybe I should just go find a nice, frozen lake.
