    I believe virtually all of society's rules exist mainly to instruct people who don't want to think for themselves.  Most people are followers, and prefer to be led by someone else.  People of average intelligence (most people) believe they should follow someone smarter than...

    You Only Have One Life.

    I don't let people/rules run my life for me.  I make my own decisions regardless and do me 100% of the time.  We only get one chance to make life worth it, and if we aren't enjoying ourselves what's the point?  Society wants us to conform but some people are just...
