    on a cosmic level we are all insignificant, but that doesn't make our basic existence any less thrilling. plus, being known for some sort of atrocity isn't going instill some sort of great meaning into your life. it would just make you a jerk.

      You are right, we are all insignificant. So your idea of what a jerk is, is even less significant than your physical existence. So you can be average, I'll be eradicating endangered species in my Humvee wearing a coat made of bald eagle feathers.

      No matter what, we'd still be insignificant. Can anybody still remember the caveman who was the first murderer? Worst crime possible, and yet nobody remembers.

    I died in a terrible terrorist attack, after saving a thousand newborn kittens, their mothers, and saving 5 human babies. I had to kill 25 people to save them though. I died trying to rescue a group of school children who were trapped under a car, which exploded.

    Being remembered is all there is. I don't want to get married and have kids, and there's no way I'm going to be forgotten.

    I'm happy with my life, so long as I enjoyed it, I'm happy. However, if I were to go down in history for something bad, I'd probably be able to teach the world something, therefore bettering the future... tough choice really.

    For all the people that vote red. As of now you are living an average life and will be forgotten. So why haven't you done something terrible to be remembered? Because you would rather not do something terrible, therefore you would rather live an average life.

    Not to be a horrible person, but do you know how many people know who Hitler is, and joke about him over the Internet? I would rather be a god in history books.

    To be honest, it depends on what terrible thing I do, I would rather die than be an average person because in my opinion, living a life of just doing normal stuff and no special stuff isnt living. I think that doing no special stuff is like doing nothing. I dont like average people much and would probably like a bizarre person a lot more, not that I find anything wierd.
