So, anyone heard of this?

YOLO or You Only Live Once is something i have being hearing quite commonly, especialy among the teenage culture that invented it.

So what do you think of it?

Personally, I think it is complete and utter garbage.

It's something that sounds kind of inspirational at first, but is quickly ruined by the type of people who go around saying it.

It's what people — usually hipsters — say when they're about to do something really stupid.

It's definitely better than Swag, but not by much.

Yet another device to make my generation look bad, if you ask me.

I read this recently:

"I am fairly certain that 'YOLO' is 'carpe diem' for stupid people."

I once looked at some pictures of a local YOLO-night in our country.

Not only are these people dumb, arrogant and fake as f**k, they're also really ugly, unhealthy and out of shape compared to the normal youth.

I saw a T-shirt that said this:

You
Only
Live
Once

Do it up.

Just something that is used to be stupid. I can just as easily say you only reach you global maximum in utility once. but it doesn't make a good acronym.

A kid in my class said YOLO today and I literally flinched. I had never heard anyone actually say it outside of the internet.
