Spiwizzle  - My dad has been going Trick or treating all his life, and he's 45 now, why do you have to stop when you get older? - Nov 24 2016 - Like
SpacePioneer  - Okay lets break the Halloween thing down. Do it for the candy? Buy sone at fucking walmart. Do ot for the dressing up as something? Try cosplaying. (Which you can do more than one day of the year, too!) Sure, you can't have them together, but who cares? - Nov 17 2016 - Like

Melloluk  - 1. You forgot school. 2. You forgot school. 3. You forgot school, again. And also, who says you have to have a family, and some boring ass 9 to 5 job? 4. Then make new friends. 5. You just spent the majority of your life so far with your family. Maybe you want to get away? 6. Yeah, that's already happened. Beat you to it. 7. You have to do the same things now. 8. Okay. Fair. 9. Maybe watch a new TV show you enjoy? Who's making this list anyway? 10. Who says? Fuck, I'm going trick or treating as fucking Batman whether I'm 12 or 79. 11. Same thing as 10. 12. This just wreaks of stupidity. How much money do you actually have to spend, without a steady job? You have more money, and more things to do with it when you have a steady job. 13. Better than going to school and not getting paid for it. 14. Great thing about life, right? - Sep 27 2016 - Like

oscar-  - The last one isn't sad, it is great, we will always need to learn, to be better, as a person and humanity as a whole. The universe is there. We exist to learn about it. The meaning of life is to learn, I believe. - Aug 26 2016 - Like
