The meaning of life — 11 Comments

  1. Those tosspots dont know what a good time is – Jesus wept they think FF is a party for fucks sake
    Anyway, I for 1 plan to carry on the hedonistic lifestyle till I fall down – My guts wont be good for garters by the time I’m finished

  2. It doesn’t matter where on the planet you live Grandad .. politicians are all the same … its all about “control” & “power” and the exercising of them over those who don’t have any ..
    I’ve told my kids that when I snuff-it, I want to be buried at sea … so that all the arseholes & wankers whom I’ve upset along the way (for there be many) can come & dance on my grave ..
    Fuck ’em all ….   😉

  3. Went off the drink for June. Stupid idea. Felt worse, not better. Got no credit for it. Time lagged.
    July is different. Two breweries already. Various other establishments. Happiness is up.
    Anyway the two extra years offer you were talking about is an old con. You don’t actually live longer at all. It…
    (Wait for it.)
    It just feels that way.

  4. Research [HAH!] has shown that there is one single thing that can extend a lifespan by up to ten years – happiness.  Maybe that’s their plan?  Make us all miserable so we die younger?

  5. my doctor has asked me to quit drinking for a month so they can get a reading of my “liver function”. I’m in a dilemma here – I love drink, but I also love the idea that I might still be drinking in forty years.
    I’m going with the doctor’s plan for now (trying, anyway!), but if the end result is the doctor asking me to completely quit drinking, I think the answer has to be “no”. Living without enjoying it is not living at all.

  6. Drinking isn’t living. It’s an escape from living/reality to a drug  induced high.Or more often low.

  7. That also describes suburbia. They still passing out SSRI drugs to anyone who wants ’em in the states TT?
    All legal of course.

  8. @tt, yes, could be.
    For me, it’s not to a “low” – I never drink to the point that I’m drunk – what would be the point of that? waste of money – especially if you can’t remember it the next day.
    I guess for me it’s the same as other people with smoking, or with exercising, or reading a book – it makes me feel good, and is (yes) a temporary lift from the boredom of the day.
    I don’t care how other people get their little kicks, as long as no-one gets hurt. For me, its having a few pints while doing the cryptic (in the pub) or watching some anime (at home). I don’t like the idea of a doctor taking that away from me.

  9. Mr. Edward Carson, QC: Do you drink Champagne yourself? 

    Mr. Oscar Wilde: Yes; iced champagne is a favourite drink of mine, strongly against my doctor’s orders. 

    Mr. Edward Carson, QC: Never mind your doctor’s orders, sir! 

    Mr. Oscar Wilde: I never do.

  10. @tt – SSRIs are a kind of anti-depressant. very bloody annoying they are too – make your head fuzzy, and if you forget to take them, it feels like your eyes are wandering one way while your head wanders the other, making you dizzy and nauseous. I don’t like drugs.
