Prelude explaining what is a "marvinism". Like if anyone cares. The phenomenon starts with the Big Bang.
Bang! There. It started. Now it goes on.There is a mind-bloggingly amount of crap that is been said around the universe since its dawn, but few lives on it have been so miserable and self depressing as Marvin's. Having a brain capable of calculating the hidrogen's emission's of a cubic parsec, he is told to move stuff around and to wait millions of years in a parking lot with nothing to do. Here is what he has to say about "life" and other ghastly intolerable stuff.
"I ache, therefore I am."
"Do you want me to sit in a corner and rust or just fall apart where I'm standing?"
"Wearly I sit here, pain and misery my only companions."
"Pardon me for breathing, which I never do anyway so I don't know why I bother to say it, oh God, I'm so depressed. Here's another one of those self-satisfied doors. Life! Don't talk to me about life."
"Life," said Marvin dolefully, "loathe it or ignore it, you can't like it."
Marvin: "I am at a rough estimate thirty billion times more intelligent than you. Let me give you an example.
Think of a number, any number."
Zem: "Er, five."
Marvin: "Wrong. You see?"
"Why stop now just when I'm hating it?"
"What's up?" [asked Ford.]"I don't know," said Marvin, "I've never been there."
"Simple. I got very bored and depressed, so I went and plugged myself in to its external computer feed. I talked to the computer at great length and explained my view of the Universe to it," said Marvin."And what happened?" pressed Ford."It committed suicide," said Marvin and stalked off back to the Heart of Gold.
Zaphod: "Can it Trillian, I'm trying to die with dignity."Marvin: "I'm just trying to die."
"Why should I want to make anything up? Life's bad enough as it is without trying to invent any more of it"
"Life. Don't talk to me about life."
DISCLAIMER. I have written this to make me happy, not to get you down. I really find this not depressing, but hillarious.
Can't stop laughing.
(Don't worry if I get asfixiated in this laughing exercise. If life isn't good at me in this part, at least I know it won't last much longer. Thanks for worrying though. Or whatever.)

Short wasn't it? Here's another: Life's a bitch. And then you die.
Understanding these three posts. Well yeah, I'm doin a trilogy of very depressed stuff I found out not by accident, but because a spider crawled into my head and climbed up the walls of my skull, wretching my brain while trying to make a web inside me, which is in itself a very stupid move. Why would a spider try to make a web inside my own head, if not for a lack of a brain capable of understanding that flies won't enter my head to be caught by it? The other possibility maybe that the soup I ate was a bit cold. I can never distinguish between the two, excuse me. Like I care. Anyways, I was explaining these terrible posts. They are wretched, and worthless being read. They are depressing. That said, I can't imagine why are you still reading this. But
as you still are, well, here are the quotes I gathered, myself and the stupid spider inside my own head.
