Why are we here, what is the purpose of life, what is the purpose of ANYTHING? I don't want to hear life is what you make of it, I don't want to hear just do what makes you happy, I don't want to hear any of the sappy bull$hit, it's fake.
Life is a facade, it's crap, it's a measly existence and a futile struggle for money until we die.
Why do we work during the prime of our lives (18-65) only to live a lesser existence before and after those prime years? Why is everything about money? Why is the entire construct of humanity and modern civilization so pathetic? Why are the scumbags of the Earth wealthy and why do horrible things only happen to good people? WHY IS EVERYTHING ABOUT FRIGGIN MONEY???
Get a job I actually enjoy? I don't enjoy rotting away in an office or doing anything else that's ultimately useless.
Just do things that make me happy? Nothing makes me happy anymore because everything's fake, and besides you still need money to do anything at all. Hell you need money just to live, breathe, and eat.
Why am I so jaded? Because at the bottom line the world isn't fair, it's just one big circus, a giant cluster F*(@. Stupid people get wealthy, good people get poor, and worse.
If your mentality is that life isn't fair, and that I should deal with it, then please don't bother responding, I really don't care to read what you have to say.

I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success... Such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything.

There's so much "noise" out there it's unbelievable. The TV and radio are filled with so many other opinions that I start losing track of what MY opinion of things is. I refuse to fall into the "off-the-shelf" life, you know what I mean:
2. mainstream education;
3. jobs / career;
4. mortgage and other debt to tie me down;
5. retirement and finally getting to see the world when I can't control my toilet time anymore;
