Kierkegaard ... theistic existentialism
Sartre ... atheist existentialism


At my first semester anniversary at university my big brother bought me a book. Just what every over-sexed hyper boned teenage kid in a collage town wanted....."Existentialism... from Dostoyevsky to Sarte"...what the fuck?  A rather impressive book that I occasionally strifed through but mostly fanned the pages in effort to make it look read and left it about the living room to enhance my chances in my sole pursuit of pussy.

Do you ever just think...damn, natural selection sure is bad at it's job! It's supposed to weed out genes like mine. I shouldn't exist. I wish I didn't 99.9999999(infinitesimal 9s)% of the time.

I think if we hadn't become adapt at adapting the environment that adapts us through natural selection, 99% Of us would already have died by now.

Anyways, You may not be born lucky. But you are lucky to be born.

In the end, we are all standing in the dark,
trying to figure out why we are here.
But let us not choose one direction
without proof of where it is headed.

so we can observe and learn together
as fast friends and relative idiots.

Unfortunately, changing the environment to better adapt to us, creates a metastable situation ... if we lose our grip, the environment reverts to being the hostile bitch she is.

We are all just the sperm that got to the ova fastest and able to join it.  For every dumb-as-hell person, the next sperm might have been a winner.  Its sad to think sperm-speed controls so much...

Yeah, yeah, environment and epigenetics matter, but it starts and it greatly decided with the winning little squiggler.  A twitch and a change of thrust can be Einstein or the village idiot.

I wonder if an individual sperm experiences an orgasm when it reaches the egg first?

I don't think so. They don't have brains or a nervous system, so they shouldn't experience anything.

I would agree, that they won't be nervous about anything ;-)

But they act just like me and my friends going after that one hottie when we were in high school.  Of course, we didn't have brains or nervous systems either.

You had slightly more than a sperm.  A sperm is about as simple as it gets.  YOU were probably also thinking of cool cars, sports figures, and food at the same time.  That is at least 3x as complicated.  ;)

Silly gametes!  Half the sperm are girls.  The woman's egg is all girl.  Males are not (at the gamete level), we are bi-gendered.
