If your life was only a joke and utterly inconsequential in the end, would you react with a laugh or sigh?

Nah, but I can see the connection.
Just a bit philosophy inspired. The laughing thing is just my approach to life. It's an absurdism/taoism thing -- to live in spite of anything else -- in rebellion of.
You feel?

Another Daiost? Brother!!

Yes. The "don't sweat the small things, and they're all small things" philosophy has served me well.

Sweet. I don't consider myself a proper taoist, but, it's definitely something EVERYONE should draw some wisdom from.

I know it well. "That's how it's supposed to taste.." Found Daoism (the T is slightly swallowed) 30 years ago when looking for God. Found her/Him/It through Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land: We all are. We just don't know it. But everything is.
