Again, some substance would be nice, instead of acting like some kind of hardasses. "Yo bro it's the same as before I was born, you know?" Doesn't cut it, and in any case it's not the same. Before you were born you didn't have to look forward to existing. The same now, death may not matter once it's happened -- but it's the waiting for it to happen that sucks.
I'll make sure I cite every post, as if I was plagiarizing ideas because I happen to share them.

Shouldn't you be posting this in High Things?

As far as living, I'll live on through those I directly effect and through my music which will hopefully survive like countless others have in the past thousand years.
