    The "Storm Area 51 Facebook group" has become a breeding ground for a particular subgenre of sh*tposting: depression memes. In this Vlog, we argue that depression memes are the most modern development of a philosophical and psychological sentiment immortalized over 150 years ago in what is considered one of the first existentialist stories: Fyodor Dostoevsky's novella Notes From Underground.

WUB A LUB A DUB DUB! What would be funny would be if the idiots storm Area 51, and the guards and scientists there have spent the advance warning time to build a fake UFO in Hangar 18 with a lemonade stand manned by actors in alien suits. Anything really secret will have been removed from the facility decades ago when it became a household name.

It seems like the modern trend on anything is just to whine about it and despair about the sorry state of their own existence (because God forbid they appreciate all of the incredible modern amenities that literally no other generation in human history would've had the luxury of appreciating). Just as there are two sides to every coin, there are two ways (or many, many more) to look at any given situation or circumstance. There is the "popular" way of looking at the modern world in the form of late-stage capitalism where "you are a cog in the machine that has no meaning whatsoever...and then you die" kind of outlook that fuels this "Storm Area 51" bullshit. But there is in equal measure (or at least there ought to be) another message that says that we decide the meaning in our otherwise meaningless existence. Anyone who even jokes about storming Area 51 has clearly surrendered to the inherent meaninglessness of the world and of their very existence, which I find pathetic. True, life is inherently devoid of meaning; and yes, it is true that we are all one day destined to die; but if I, like every one of us, am to eventually be as a cow to slaughter, I will go as the finest kobe beef: appreciative of the journey I have traveled, the luxuries I have enjoyed, and will spread my good tidings unto the future that they may positively enjoy the bounties of the very fact that I existed in the first place. The future stands upon the shoulders of the present, and if the shoulders of the present should falter, what then? … Food for thought.

Honestly, with all of the drama crap going on, people aren’t as much of fence-sitters as the underground man is at all. I think everyone’s just writing jokes they find funny. Edit: to clarify, I think we have a serious oversharing problem

Storming Area 51 is a really dumb idea. There is properly no aliens there but there is a base of highly armed US military servicemen who are guarding top secret next gen military aircrafts, so they will shot to kill people who try and storm it.

It is sad how much I relate to this. I even picked to study for a degree in technical IT so I would have the least amount of predestination as to what my job will be. Every time I think "This would be a cool carreer", the thought dies instantly when I weigh the cons. I feel like I am too conscious to decide anything.

I wonder what, under the safe assumption one exists, is the name for the philosophy that takes the cynicism of the underground man, but tries to coopt negative thing for positive sentiments, not so much an optimistic view but more a why the f*** not view, like if we're all going to die why not go out with a bang, I suspect it may be related to nihilism

The shitposter seems mainly interested in low effort culture jamming though their work is an attempt to thwart any possibility of progress and to selfishly carry off the trophy of disruption as the small gift to oneself that comes from having at least achieved some small thing instead of putting forth the kind of collective effort needed to accomplish something of great value. The shitposter seeks some level of interaction, but only controlled kind where they can be sure of what will come of it. In a world where we can count on any possible attack as a reward for sincerity, the defensive posture of the shitpost ensures that the majority of possible responses will only magnify the original message.

Me as Memer: posting memes, thought it's funny....😄 Wisecrack Guy: It's our contention that this phenomenon of people memes about their despair is an extension of philosophical and psychological sentiment immortalized by Fyodor Dostoevsky's Novella.

How can this analysis get any more wrong and irrelevant. This guy in the video is not a depressed shitposter he is just a douchebag. He goes out to dinner with friends and then ruins the evening. Imagine having friends to go out to dinner with.

Lol as someone who has served in the army I can tell you that this storming area 51 won't go down like anyone wants it to go down. It's going to be be stupid. The airmen who will see the most action will be the medics who have to treat the dumb hippies who got heat stroke outside the gate. Then likely there will be a detail go out and provide these non planning fools some water. Later the crowd will leave after some pointless partying and maybe some police intervention due to illegal activity such as drugs or the two or three people drunk enough to try to actually rush area 51. Then they will leave. There will be a number of lawsuits against the police, and the military even though both parties did more good for the partying hippies than they did harm. Yes very anticlimactic I know but that's how real life is. Which is why instant karma videos are so popular.

True depression is when you have empathy for others because that is the trigger... millions suffering every day. If you only care when something negative happens to you, you're just selfish. Consciousness must learn to care for others, or it will destroy itself. Evil never gives up its power. If they win, the suffering will never end. Luckily for them, being a dictator is the best job in the land of the ignorant. Endless corruption.

Yeah you got it right. We think about the future don't respecting ourselves in the present. It's good and unique to do that. You need to accept that. Living in the present is for people who want happiness but don't understand that they have to constantly evolve to be truly happy
