    I disagree :)don't really think there's anything else I should live for.

    So if you were to write an autobiography about yourself, you would write about how you enjoyed your life.

    To me, the only thing that matters in life is happiness.

    So I'm with Fang on this one.

    If you got no pleasure from what you're doing then you wouldn't do it... unless you're going to get pleasure from it in the future.

    I mostly think of myself a a FPS connoisseur and a lover of military history these days... Basically I'm too much of a nerd. And I'm pathetically weak.

    The video has nothing to do with you, just another fake reason for me to live, or the actual reason is for me to play all FPS games and perhaps start a collective journal of them for history.

    Why are you assuming life has a purpose?

    Because it does have one.

    You may not recognize it though, that's a different story.

    How do you know it has one?

    As a philosopher of sorts, I think it's absurd for people to assign a purpose to something like life itself. Life is just what you make of it. I don't think there is something like an all-encompassing purpose.
