What have you achieved in your life?



It's not any successes that define my life but my main failure which was to become an enlightened being in one lifetime, and I have indeed failed at that when I should not have. That's life I suppose, no matter how well your intentions there are just so many distractions along the way. How much easier it would have been to live in a cave in the Himalayas like in times gone by.
The fact that you recognise that you're not enlightened puts you halfway down the path to enlightenment ;)

A famous quote from Socrates went something like 'I am the wisest man on Earth because I know one thing. That a know nothing'.

Is it not along the lines of unwise men think they know everything, but a wise man knows he does not?

I think there are loads of slightly different versions of the same quote since he never wrote anything down himself and what came from others was in Ancient Greek, which wouldn't have a word for word translation.

Like the vast majority, fuck all. And like the vast majority will soon be dead and within a couple of generations forgotten, and might as well have never lived.
You're just pissed off you couldn't win the X Factor, come on there's no need for the envy. :lol:

Good job you are in the minority then mate isn’t it 😀
I was on the referendum day, yes, perhaps not since then. We'll never know unfortunately. The Leavers ran a good and incredibly well funded campaign. When you give the vote to the masses.....

I'd still feel ashamed. What a classy PM we have eh? Hiding in a fridge to bottle being interviewed. Hiding from the press conferences in a time of crisis and throwing Grant Shapps (or whatever name he uses now) under the bus. People who voted for the Tories must feel so proud. Absolutely dreadful.

Much easier to just not bother watching anything I've found, try it.
