We have it a thousand times better than our predecessors and we still complain and wonder if it is right to bring children into this horrible world of ours.

Fuck it. It doesn't get better than this.


:roll: I'm thinking about the global scale here. Why don't you go and ask somebody who doesn't have any clean water or food to drink whether they think that they're living in a utopia?

A Utopia would be pretty fucking boring. Not saying we shouldn't try, the chaos we are currently in is not sustainable, the fun has to end one day or it will be ended for us.

I was being tongue-in-cheek, but they would probably say the same thing. Life stinks.
