No offence but I really hope you are never in the armed forces.

No, Donny, these men are nihilists, there's nothing to be afraid of.

Post Re: The Goal of Life
I was originally thinking of getting married with a smart and interesting girl and having kids, but after some thinking, I'm really not sure about the kids.
I do want to make a living off something I'm genuinely interested in. Preferably something computer-related.

I can't really think of anything fancy to say here. I mean, I don't have any grand dreams.
Maybe I could strive to research a way to preserve someone as an AI after death? I dunno, it'd be cool. Or not. Depends on who you ask.

Post Re: The Goal of Life
fine here's my goals in life put in a less violent form

Graduate from high school

On the ASVAB get a good score and get at least 135 in general technical.

Go to a Warrant Officer academy.

Join U.S.A.F as Warrant Officer.

Serve for 25 years.

Retire.

Die.

(Getting a family would be kind of hard while serving for 25 years so that's a secondary goal)

Because, Non, being old is awesome.
I will already be filthy rich from my career as a successful game developer, I get to spend the rest of my days reclining with a laptop and nobody expects me to do anything productive for the rest of my life.
I get all the good parts of looking after kids with my kids' kids and none of the bad ones, I can take them to do cool things and then give them back to their parents when they are getting tired and cranky and start coming down from the rush of all the sugar I fed them and get headaches and throw up.

Old people have a permit to be backwards, lazy, eccentric and angry all the time. I can shout at teenagers, animals and anyone who happens to be walking by my house and they'll dismiss it as the product of being old. What could possibly be more desirable?
My body might be shutting down but hopefully medical science will have advanced far enough that I won't forget my own name or piss myself, and it's not like I run marathons at the moment. And stairlifts are cool! I was always envious of my grandad's one when I was a kid, why would I not want one now?

Plus if I'm old it means I didn't die when I was young.

I'm as confused as non, do you all really think getting a good girl and growing old together is that much fun?

Personally, I just want to go to university and get my design degree and make all sorts of awesome things while doing whatever the ♥♥♥♥ I want to do with my life.

Those things aren't mutually exclusive?
University takes 3-5 years, and I've almost finished my course already!
I'm going to make awesome things and have children and a fulfilling family life, I don't know why you think that's impossible.

Oh, almost forgot. Also got to kill Dauss. Slowly. Painfully. Very, very, slow and painfully. I'll do my best to not kill him, but make him feel pain. A LOT. Of. Pain.
But that's not very important, so I'll keep it as a secondary goal.
