From the author: The responses to the question “If we all end up dying, what’s the purpose of living?” on Quora inspired me to write this comic. The consensus was that at the end, to the universe we’re no more important than a rock. We’re so tiny that trying to find a meaning for our lives seems even arrogant, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy it. You eat a donut (or a cake, like Quora suggested), and enjoy it without worrying that you’ll finish it in a few bites.
HEY KIDDO. EVERYTHING OK? WHAT'9 THE POINT OF ALU THIS? WHY LIVE IF WE'RE gonna die anyway? 0 DO YOU LIKE DONUTS? MMM... L YEAH, SO? № DO YOU EVER THINK, 'GEE, WHY EAT A DONUT IF I'LL FINISH IT IN A FEW BITES?' WOULD YOU SAY NO TO A DONUT UNLESS IT WAS A NEVER ending donut? v NO, RIGHT? YOU WOULDN’T © MAYBE YOU WOULD GET A BIT SAD WHEN YOU REALIZE YOU’RE ABOUT TO FINISH IT. V © BUT KNOWING IT'S GONNA END SOON MAKES YOU ENJOY IT EVEN MORE. STOP TALKING TO ME LIKE I’M A KID. LIFE IS NOT THAT SIMPLE. WHAT'S THE MEANING OF IT ALL? DO YOU WANT THE TRUTH? ^ YOU’RE NOT GONNA LIKE IT I I TELL ME! THE! i A !E'S NO MEANING AT ALL. Bk r WE'VE BEEN IN THIS WORLD for Only a couple hundred thousand years WHILE THE STARS AND EVERYTHING ABOVE US HAVE EXISTED FOR BILLIONS. DO you really THINK THE UNIVERSE HAS A PLAN FOR YOU Or ME? O' OFCOL WE’RE Jl MAN ACC I RSE NOT! jst One Of Y TINY DENTS! )- / THAT DOESN'T MEAN WE SHOULD JUST GIVE EVERYTHING UP, THOUGH.

THAT'S JUST HOW IT works. THAT DONUT is NOT FOREVER BUT... J) WE ARE GIVEN THE CHANCE TO SAVOR EVERY BITE OF IT. •K ' —W So, YEAH, Our lives are MEANINGLESS, THE UNIVERSE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT US AND AT SOME POINT WE'LL ALL BE FORGOTTEN... BIG WHOOP!
