The Meaning of Life

Like most of us, I haven’t quite figured out the meaning of life just yet. But thanks to Google, the answers may be here.

Or you could check the FAQ. Then again, there’s a FAQ on tool belts… so maybe the web isn’t the best place to find the meaning of life.

What’s it to you? -pm

There is no meaning to life. Life is just mean.

Instead of figuring out the meaning of life for myself, I’ve stolen my personal definition from eighties pop culture. In the last episode of Family Ties Mallory Keaton stated that the meaning of life is: Be happy, try not to hurt anyone, and hope to fall in love. I’ve been enlightened ever since.

I also agree with anything Justine Bateman says, in character or otherwise.

I took a poop this morning and I felt better afterwards. Then, for breakfast, I ate some leftover food from a cooking class -- Sundried Tomato, Carmelized Onion and Roasted Mushroom Bruschetta and Roasted Pork Bruschetta with Apple Slaw.

Patrick: so your meaning of life is using the bathroom, eating breakfast, and posting a pointless comment to the Ping?

Pointless? I didn't see it that way. Still don't.

I was thinking it was more of a Zen-like approach to the meaning of life. Yeah, umm, sure...thats what it was.

I consider pointless Ping comments a way of life (but not much of a life).

I always forget if it's 42 or 47. Even if someone pipes up with the correct answer, I'll immediately forget. In other words, I know life has a meaning, I just can never remember it.

Cat -- I'm pretty sure it was 47.

Paul -- Patrick is proud of his poop. That's the meaning of his life. Though, knowing him, I admit that I am surprised. Perhaps he meant to post to this Ping or this Ping.

Ryan -- 42 for sure!

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
