This theme was touched upon in another thread and I wanted to discuss it further.

That is a pretty judgemental statement, don't you think?


So do you tell these people who spend all their time watching TV or twiddling their thumbs all day what you think of them?


Did you grow up volunteering? Did your parents and siblings volunteer?

That was quite rude to tell someone that their hobby is not meaningful. Do you have a hobby? How would you feel if someone told you they felt it had no meaning?

I just did.

Yes


Did your parents and siblings volunteer?
Parents, no, not *officially*... Don't know about siblings.

Oh, you cold-hearted wench you. BTW, I do get what you are saying. I still think people can do whatever they wanna do, but I don't think it is healthy or happy to lead an empty life. OTOH, you can work somewhere and still lead an empty life.

I did not mean just on a debate board. I also meant in your real life.


Do you have a hobby? What is it and how would you feel if someone told you that it was meaningless?

Life is full, vibrant, full of passion. I embrace life daily. I love life. It is awesome.


There is no empty.
