In case you're unlucky enough to have never heard him speak before:

Huh, it's weird I had never even heard of him: he seems (Seemed? What's the proper grammar when talking about recently deceased?) like someone I wanna be if I ever decide to grow up. Well, it's either that or becoming The Benevolent Leader of North Europe, although I'm not sure if I can ever be arsed with politics...

EDIT: Just ordered God is not Great from Ebay. Would've preferred a Finnish version but since every major bookstore is out of them I guess I'll just have to learn some English... :(

There's nothing wrong with being a nihilist. Trying to be the biggest nihilist possible gives meaning to my life!! :eek: :P

Meh, I'm just an atheist, not a nihilist. My life - and life in general - does serve a purpose, even if it's just ensuring that life continues to exist.

Besides, nihilists can be such downers sometimes, unlike me, who - in my godless, realistic and pragmatic ways - can be quite the social butterfly! :P
(although people keep telling me otherwise... but what do they know anyway...)

Why would anyone troll the Zen? I will remove access for anyone who can't handle it!
