    But this was gay.

    'Is the meaning of life found or made'? Why the dichotomy? I'd argue it's both.

    Really, i'm a mixture of Artistotle, Thucydides, Heraclitus + a few other Pre-Socratics.

    I agree, I wanted to answer "both" on a lot of questions, sometimes "other" or "none of the above" ^^

    i agree. didn't care for the questions. for instance the happiness vs suffering one. almost seems like a glass half full/glass half empty kind of deal.

    Not convinced he's for you? Learn about the other philosophy-gurus of antiquity!
