    If you were to create...

    A set of goals and desires which would define how people live, what types of goals and desires/values would you set for people?

    Sort of like...creating your own philosophy so to speak....

    Educate yourself.

    That's my philosophy.

    1. Happiness
    2. Learning/Exploring

    guess that's all that matters

    Find a selfless cause and stand up for it and don't just think about. Do one act everyday and don't look for rewards. An actual working philosophy.

    Look at my current unlikely hero Manny Pacquiao. Human trafficking.

    Rule #1: Do everything you can to please the great and mighty Bergtau.





    Then I would fall into a serious depression and kill myself a few years later due to everybody constantly trying to please me.

    Bergtau's Law: As an online discussion grows longer, the probability that somebody will mention Godwin's Law approaches 1.
    Hitler wasn't all bad, I mean, he DID kill Hitler.
    An accident is something that you did not mean to do at all. A mistake is something that you regret doing.

    Gandhi did mine for me:

    "Live like it is your last day on earth, learn like you're going to live forever." Or something to that effect.
    If you add me on Steam, Skype or whatever program/client I share my info for, please write something to identify you in the "Dude/gal wants to join your club"-message. Just so I know that an actual human is on the other end :P

    If I had to codify a philosophy, I'd make sure to include a mandatory hatred for initially profound-sounding but empty-headed platitudes.

    Also probably make a point to oppose hero-worship, especially of insane people like Gandhi, who among his many achievements can list being an open racist, the probable rapes of pre-teen girls, and brilliant advice such as that the jews during WW2 should let themselves be exterminated. Being a pacifist is all well and good until you come across an opponent who has no qualms about killing you even if you're not resisting...

    Actually, now that I think about it, it may actually have already been codified as the philosophy, going a little something like 'being a cynical asshole'. I understand it's not the right philosophy for everyone, but it's the right one for me.
