My general philosophy is if you're not finding fun in your life, then make some damn fun. Life is too short. Also, 64% of the population is, for lack of better words, crazy, so surround yourself with good people. You can't account for what makes people tick, but if you can make them laugh a bit, be a good spirit and friend, then that's not so bad, right?
