* TheNihilist: Cracked author Mark Hill admits that he was this in [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/4-surprising-things-you-learn-after-considering-suicide/ the depths of depression]], wondering why he should do anything if it's all going to be forgotten. However, after he got (mostly) through considering suicide he became an AntiNihilist, and has this to say to all nihilists who think about why they even bother:
--> '''Mark:''' And a million years from now, no one will know or care what you did. But you're here ''now, goddammit''. And I want you to stay here, to tell your friend a dumb joke, to make something you can be proud of while you still can. Because if we don't have each other, if we don't have ''you'', then we don't have anything.
