If we are all going to die anyway, why do we continue to live our lives?

you are asking a question that i was asking myself Dec through Jan, Feb and March.

coz you don't have a choice. coz living is fun, and there is no guarantee that what comes after death is even remotely interesting. i am not sure if dead people get laid. so on and so forth

You might want to mention that to the terrorists, to give them time to think of something else to do with their six dozen virgins.

From Illusions, by Richard Bach:

Here is a test to find out if your purpose in life is fulfilled:

If you are alive, no.

Because it's not your choice. It has been decided when your life ends whether or not you are the one who ends it. Predestiny. D flows from C, which flows from B, which flows from A and so on.

I actually think B flows from D and A flows from D, and C sits around wishing they would stop all this gross flowing about.

Its starting to sound as if dying is almost as over-rated as living is.

of course it is!!!! when u were born, were you carried on a bed flower laden with a procession?

Not quite, but I wasn't burnt when I got home either, so I must say that in the end, I'm kinda glad at how it turned out. I can live without the flowers, literally.
