And now showing almost 54'000 views!

I hate to think what Hoofseun's email inbox looks like... Fan/spam mail galore!

I do not think that dying is a good idea.
Living doing something that you love is a good idea.
Living until you die is a good idea. If living happens to kill you it means you made a mistake, but we are human, and humans make mistakes, so go for it, enjoy it, live until you die, rather than not living for your whole life.
