Always wanted to be a nihilist, but never thought I was cool enough. Plus, I don't look good in form fitting black clothes.

Some food for thought........




For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

Maybe it's my wasted years being a preacher of "Good News," but it's tough listening to this guy talk about the pursuit of Pleasure when he has a big scowl on his face. Somebody needs to get out and have a little pleasure now and then. Big Grin

But I'm still giving it a go anyway.

It's more interesting if you click that little snowflake button on the YouTube Tool Bar.

Ah, but the berets, yes the berets!

RE: "What?" is the meaning of life.
I'd love to know but I don't think we ever will know. I'm quite happy just to enjoy life as much as humanly possible whilst I'm on this amazing planet for this miniscule amount of time. Laughing as much as I can and learning everything that I'm interested in. Ignoring arrogant, small minded people and seeking out like-minded people and giving them the respect they deserve. That's pretty much it. Smile

Humankind Dodgy (a total misnomer)

Sounds like pretty much enough.

Krishnamurti held some sway back in the day with Girly.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
