If a tree falls in the middle of the forest, on a mime, and no one is around, does anybody care?

The mime's mime family.
They'll mourn silently.

The only difference between Hitler and the man next door who comes home and beats his kids every day is circumstance. The intent is the same-- to harm others.

These aren't really interesting philosophy questions, you should pose some deeper ones if you want a decent response. Something like causation, and is it necessary for the universe to have a first cause, or is there just an infinite regress?

Infinite regress, a cause has to be caused by something, right?

Depends on what it's filled with. It's half full if it's something I want. Half empty if I don't want whats in the glass.

I'm appreciative of what I'm given and what I'm not given. The things I want, I'll focus on what I've already been given (The glass is half full). What I do not not, I'll be thankful for what I've not been given (The glass is half empty).

Is this real life?

There's no such thing as regret. A regret means you are unhappy with the person you are now,
and if you're unhappy with the person you are, you change yourself. That
regret will no longer be a regret, because it will help to form the new,
better you. So really, a regret isn't a regret.
It's experience.

Succeeded, because you were trying to fail and you did.

Glass is half empty.

Tree still makes a sound.

You succeeded in your objective, therefore, it is a success.

But your success was failure, so you failed and succeeded

One or the other, and so far the most predominant answer has been success, therefore it was a success.

Bah. This philosophy is going nowhere. Here's a question that will really get your brains ticking:

What are the faults, if any, in Plato's Republic?

Is this real life?

What is real life?

I'm only throwing a few questions in here, if you'd like to suggest something that's completely fine.

This is just going to be a never ending cycle, so it's pointless to even try and choose.

You succeeded then you failed, you failed then succeeded. In the end you did absolutley nothing, you lazy stagnant [bleep].

From the little I know of it, it's too idealistic, and there wouldn't really be any way to decide who would rule.
