well, of course to yourself life is the longest thing you'll experience because it's well..your life. but it's short in the grand scale of things. trees live longer than us. rock metamorphism takes way longer than we live. we're pretty much a speck in geological time scale.

I wasnt going to say anything but a lot ofthings about this highdea rub me wrong... First, the whole calling people "the dumbest asshole ever". Come on, really?

Second, Idioms arent meant to be taken literally. They always have deeper meaning that you must look for. This one for example, represents a statement that is suppose to help you realize that your overall time on this earth is not very long at all. It is suppose to make you think harder about certain things.

To me personally, people who oversimplify idioms like you have done are "dumb assholes". Just sayinnnnnn'

Lol, every rock you ever pick up is older than your whole family tree. Humans are just a blimp on the radar of the earth. We'll be gone in a hundred-million years, then we will either have evolved or just gone extinct. Life is short and trust me when you're 45 with three kids you'll go "where did the time go?"... Plus calm down man, the guy isn't a dumb asshole, he just made an observation that became popular.

Death. That will last a whole heck of a lot longer. In fact, being dead is our primary occupation.

it's not about life being short its about the legacy your leaving behind. bob marleys life was short but he will never be forgotten.

How do you know that? What if there's an afterlife, or we get reincarnated. You can't prove me wrong.
