As I often do I was pondering the pointlessness of humanity, just how meaningless it is for our species to exist. We accomplish nothing, and there's no reason for us to be here! Human beings also meet every single biological parameter to be considered a 'parasitic infestation' upon the face of the Earth. We consume resources at an alarming rate, fowl and pollute the environment we live in with out regard to those consequences, and we eventually killed the host. Well not literally of course, once human beings finish extinguishing themselves the Earth, the planet, will go on spinning through space just fine without us. And what a sigh of relief it will make! Kind of like being cured of the crabs, it will be free of us and can begin the long slow process of eradicating any evidence that we were ever here. There was an interesting series on the History Channel about this very subject, and how the Earth will begin breaking down everything we ever did after our species is extinct skyscrapers in New York City took an amazingly long time to go away, but who cares once we are out of the picture, there will be all the time in the world for the process to take place.

We are here only because of the weather. Once the weather changes enough, we will be gone like so many other creatures before us.

Thing is, while we are here, would be a good idea to make the best of it.

If it's pointless to exist... have you considered the alternative of not existing? Just sayin'.

Actually, I kind of agree with you on this one. We are pretty pointless, if you can disregard the damage we cause to the environment, that is.

...and I kinda agree with you as well.
Who are we as humans on this earth? We are just a part of the living organisms that CURRENTLY exist. We are neither above or below any other living thing. We are a mere footprint on this planet, just like any other animal.

Ever since we crawled out of the ocean and stood upright on land
There are some things that we just don't understand:
Relieve all pain and suffering and lift us out of the dark
Turn us all into Methuselah-
But where are we gonna park?

The secrets of eternity-
We've found the lock and turned the key
We're shakin' up those building blocks
Going deeper into that box-(Pandora wouldn't like it)

Infinity is a pretty long time.
We can choose what to worry about at any given time.

Because of my contrarian nature, I must point out that polar fleece is made from plastic and that stuff is pretty soft. Plastic toilet paper might be a great idea.
