Lol at your sig line. It reminded me of something Ambrose Bierce wrote, I think in the Devil's Dictionary. He began by telling a story about a Greek philosopher:
"The philosopher lectured the entire day on the theme that life was no better than death. Finally one of his students put up his hand and asked the obvious question: if that were the case, why didn't the philosopher kill himself?
"Because, the philosopher replied, death is no better than life!"
