177: KilroyCafe: 2010-03-01: The irony of law enforcement is that it needs crime to justify its existence. It will scare the public to protect its budget.

184: KilroyCafe: 2009-12-16: "There should be tax breaks for couples with no children. Think of the carbon saved by not bringing new people into existence!"@SamPayne1701
185: KilroyCafe: 2009-11-07: The answer to the biggest questions of existence is simply, "We don't know." Why should that be so hard to accept?

195: KilroyCafe: 2009-08-27: No one is asking, "Why couldn't Michael Jackson sleep?" There were existential reasons. He was caught in his own emotional conundrums.

197: KilroyCafe: 2009-08-15: My list of Best Existential Films: http://bit.ly/RFrU9 (Sept. 08)
198: KilroyCafe: 2009-07-27: My definition for "holographic": something that exists for itself, on its own terms, without need for others. Compare to "holographic will".

204: KilroyCafe: 2009-06-11: If UFOs exist, you got to give them credit for obeying the Prime Directive. That's the most you can ask of any alien race.
205: KilroyCafe: 2009-06-10: Police owe their existence - and ego - to crime. If they don't find it they are nobody. Find it, and they become powerful.
206: KilroyCafe: 2009-06-09: Old age is not a physical problem but existential one. People get so trapped by their past investments that they can't change.
207: KilroyCafe: 2009-05-27: Atheists are boring. LA Times http://bit.ly/fRApW - "atheists are intent on proving that God not only doesn't exist but is evil to boot."
208: KilroyCafe: 2009-05-21: Under existentialism, no matter what circumstances you're in, you are going to look for choice. How can you improve things or limit damage?
209: KilroyCafe: 2009-05-21: Under existentialism, there's no giving up. Fortune or misfortune, you soldier on, because life is all you've got, and you have to use it.

214: KilroyCafe: 2009-05-21: Existentialism isn't an atheist philosophy but an agnostic one. We don't know what lies beyond this life. All we know is this one.
215: KilroyCafe: 2009-05-21: Existentialism suggests that no one knows more than you do about what life is all about. All priests and gurus are just as lost as you are.
216: KilroyCafe: 2009-05-21: Existentialism says everything you need to know about life is right in front of you. Life itself provides the data.
217: KilroyCafe: 2009-05-21: Existentialism is seen as a very lonely philosophy. There's no father looking after you, just you and your own choices.
218: KilroyCafe: 2009-05-21: You could argue the life is an illusion. Existentialism says, "So what?" It's the best illusion we have, so we have to respect it's rules.

222: KilroyCafe: 2009-05-15: James Bond, if he existed, would probably be a sociopath. Licensed to kill, to consume the chicks. No conscience. That's why it's so easy.
223: KilroyCafe: 2009-05-06: The pothead's lack of initiative is called "amotivational syndrome," which he insists doesn't exist. Know any potheads? You decide.
