PS- I'd like to recommend youtubing George Carlin's take on this subject. It will be worth the trouble

I agree, Abe. We might not have Plato but BassDriver seems to be doing well at explaining hedonism as per French philosopher, whatsisname [check Wikipedia] Michel Onfray's views.
He defines hedonism "as an introspective attitude to life based on taking pleasure yourself and pleasuring others, without harming yourself or anyone else."
Works for me :) ... and cockroaches etc

Is George Carlin still alive? I heard he feel off the perch. Whatever, he was/is very funny!
