Anybody who doesn't blow his brains out is nuts. I mean, what's the point other than fulfilling nature's will-to-live ploy?

That's one of argument for not procreating, but not for blowing one's brains out.

Give me a single good reason why anybody should want to live other than the motivation built into his DNA through billions of evolutionary years. You're no different than a bug trying to escape a rolled-up newspaper, but at least a bug has the excuse that its brain doesn't have a cerebral cortex.

Why haven't you blown your brains out then, Bob? Not that I'm counselling, but shouldn't one have the strength of their convictions?

Yup, just like that little bug.
