Ever decided to take on a completely pointless project or challenge?

Asked by RareDenver (13089 points ) January 11th, 2013

I’m really not sure why but I decided to attempt to take an instagram picture every day for the whole of 2013. I’m sure there will arise a situation in the year that results in a fail but what the hell, why not try at least? A year in the life of me.

What pointless projects or challenges have you set yourself for no good reason?

here’s how I’m doing

Here I thought you were asking if I had ever been married.

A few years ago, I made a New Year’s resolution to have marital relations every day of the upcoming 365. Dumb! The idea might be nice in theory, but it’s dreadful in practice. Try to imagine lovemaking as a daily obligation. All the spontaneity is gone, and it’s just one more item on the to-do list.

Oh yeah. For a few months, I was fighting for equal rights for women. Then I fought big oil for a year. Then I fought nuclear proliferation. Then for clean water. Finally for single payer health care reform in the US.

These challenges were all pointless in that we had no chance of winning, and indeed, none of them ever have been won.

After a while, I got tired of pointless challenges. Then I got fired. Now I’ve got another challenge: trying to help students do research. That, at least, seems doable.

@elbanditoroso My first marriage was like that. Trying to make it work was extremely futile.
A few other relationships were just as doomed. The current one is close to two decades in duration. We’re either doing something right or are resigned to what’s what, quite likely both.

@Blackberry Me too. Plus I get trophies from the PlayStation Network for having no life. I can even prove that I have no life. XD

@Blondesjon Is that pointless ?
