Schopenhauer
Life is indeed meaningless, and full of pain, but Schopenhauer instructs us that our happiness comes from 3 sources:

What we think of ourselves,
What others think of us, and
The things we own.

Only one of them is under our control. So ignore the things and other people, and life becomes more bearable.

The New York Giants winning or losing is not under your control. Never was. They won last year, but this year they're stumbling around under some kind of post-Super Bowl malaise. Meaningless? Indeed. Painful? Only if you think it matters. And it shouldn't.

Schopenhauer must have been a Cowboys fan.

Hilarious.

In all likelihood, Schopenhauer wouldn't even be watching the NFL, other than in disgust at the fans' blind faith or loyalty, and condescend that the vicissitudes of the violent game merely confirms his philosophy.

Re: Schopenhauer
He's a football fan...his favorite team lost...is the deep psychoanalytical re-assurance really that necessary?

Own your sadness and anger George. Make it shine.
