You: Quick! What's the meaning of life?!
Stranger: love
You: Neat!
Stranger: yep
Stranger: what do YOU think is the meaning?
You: that's actually pretty close to my own response. :)
Stranger: haha
Stranger: what did you say?
You: happiness or 42 would be the first two words coming to mind.
Stranger: whats 42?
You: The answer in the book The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Connecting to server...
You’re now chatting with a random stranger. Say hi!

You: Quick! What's the meaning of life?!
Stranger: 42
You: Yes!
Stranger: I want to strangle myself now
You: ...um?
Stranger: Because that is so gay.
You: the response?
Stranger: Yes, only the worst nerds think that is funny.
You: ...and so far about 50% of the people I've asked. :)
You: The other leading response is drugs. Go figure.
Stranger: 50% answer correctly?
You: Do you have a non-funny response?
Stranger: DO you want one?
You: Sure.
Stranger: Because I just about to strangle myself with my mothers utherus for answering that question correctly.
You: so...
Stranger: 42 is a non funny response.
You: It is losing its novelty...
Stranger: Indeed it is.. I wonder if it could be because of people like you?
You: ...the meaning of life is thinly veiled hostility?
Stranger: There is not a common meaning of life, we all have different meanings to our lives, that is my approach to that question.
You: I like that one.
Stranger: I just made it.
Stranger: I am a wise stranger.
You: So what's your meaning?
Stranger: I am aware of my meaning, but I rather not say it to tell you the truth.
You: Fair enough.
Stranger: Even though this is strictly anonymous, I don’t feel comfortable sharing it. And what do you believe is the meaning of life?
You: For the moment I'm leaning towards 'love' as a catch-all response.
Stranger: Ahh, love hehe, well I could see how that could be a popular answer.
You: Not as much as you might think.
Stranger: Oh?
Stranger: Well maybe not on omegle
You: Yes, this is a somewhat particular crowd.
Stranger: Then again, I doubt this is the best place to conduct such a test.
Stranger: Yes, you could say that.
Stranger: And why are you conducting such a test, if I may ask?
You: To see what would happen. :)
Stranger: Fair enough
Stranger: Are you really bored?
You: ...you'd think that would be an easy question.
You: ...not at the moment. :)
You: And why are you on Omegle?
Stranger: Taking a small break from some work I am doing, basically procrastinating.
You: Procrastination 4evah!
Stranger: Indeed...
Stranger: I am excellent at it, I might add.
You: that *was* a very tardy response.
Stranger: It probably was.
Stranger: All my chat's are different, I change personality in everyone.
Stranger: Just to make it more entertaining.
You: So how do I know you're who you say you are?
Stranger: I have not told you anything about myself, eitherway you could not know.
You: dun dun DUN.
Stranger: It was the butler.
(…and somehow I proceeded to have an hour long conversation with this fellow. We wound up threatening each other with trout. It was interesting!)

Stranger: um\\
Stranger: this
Stranger: Just Think.
What If...
Every day was treated like a new beginning?

Where grudges, bitterness, unforgiveness, and worries died the moment your head hit the pillow. And at the time you had awaken to a new morning your mind would be renewed, not lacking knowledge or wisdom from the past, but building on what has been made from prior situations and circumstances.

Each person you'd come into contact with you'd treat like it had been the first time you'd met them and your first impression persona was at the top of it's game. Being kind, loving, unconditional in terms of your friendship in how things are done to show thanks. What if, we did things without having presumptuous intentions of wanting to be thanked for what we had done.

What if, we shared our gifts just out of love and never had the expectations of wanting to be loved in return, because we had the reassurance of knowing we're already loved regardless of what we do.

What if, our confidence was placed in something bigger then ourselves so that our dreams weren't limited to our own fears and insecurities.

What if, believing was reality?
You: ...how did you have that on hand?
Stranger: im GOD
Stranger: child
Stranger: be gone
Stranger: this place is not fit for humans
Stranger: Dont let me get the cross boy
You: ...wow, a stunning turn around!

Stranger: now now now
Stranger: And Like that i will vanish

You: That's what I want to know!
Stranger: Why?
Stranger: can't you live your life, without knowing
You: Maybe.
Stranger: I do
You: You think it's better that way?
Stranger: If there is a meaning to life it would sure be better to know it. But, what if there no such a meaning. It would be chasing something that does not exist, like a mirage.
You: That's a well thought out response.
Stranger: thx
Stranger: Tell me about yourself. It is interesting that you start off with a total strange by asking about the meaning of life
You: I am seeking the meaning of life on the internet.

You: I consider myself highly intelligent.
Stranger: FUCK.
You: This is disappointing?
Stranger: No.
Stranger: You're male, I assume....?
You: Nope!
You: Wait...
You: only males can be highly intelligent?
Stranger: Usually only males are cocky about it.
You: Heh heh. It's not cocky if you know you're right.
You: Are you conducting a survey, too?
Stranger: Of sorts.
You: What have you found?
Stranger: That women are ashamed of intelligence, in most cases.
You: Or trained to be modest?
Stranger: "LOL no i dont think so hehee =) r u a boy??"
You: *wince*
Stranger: That doesn't read as modesty.
You: Nope.
You: Society has issues.
You: I find writing resumes/CVs/applications to be very difficult.
Stranger: Particularly in the US, with gender roles like that.
Stranger: Where women are educated, but trained to act like idiots.
You: Probably true.
You: Are you male or female?
Stranger: What's your impression?
Stranger: What do you think I am?
You: Well, the fact that you are interested in the subject says 'female.' But my impression would be 'male.'
Stranger: Your impression is correct. I'm just observant, I suppose.
You: Have you read the book 'Self Made Man'?
Stranger: Never even heard of it.
You: It has an interesting look at gender roles...
You: ...a woman poses as a man in various situations and records her experiences.
Stranger: I'm only interested in them because I'm sick of stupid, stupid women.
You: Or stupid acting women?
Stranger: Both.

You: ...then drugs
You: love
Stranger: haha, I haven't gotten 42 once.
You: to live
You: lol
You: let's see...
You: boys
Stranger: probably because I'm phrasing it a different way
You: sex
You: Yeah, I set myself up for that one
Stranger: haha
You: oh, and one very confused '47'
You: also, burgers.
Stranger: that's another one of mine
Stranger: close behind love
Stranger: and the 47 is hilarious
You: :)
Stranger: so why do you think love is the most important thing?
You: I guess because it's a general statement about how you deal with other people and their importance in life.
You: You?
Stranger: I can't logically think of any other reason to live
Stranger: evolutionarily
Stranger: what else could we possibly been built for?
You: Sex?
You: j/k
Stranger: but really!
You: Yes
Stranger: viruses
Stranger: plants
Stranger: when it gets down to it, all any life does is reproduce
Stranger: or it isn't considered life
Stranger: what is love and sex but the manifestation of that principle in humankind?
You: True enough.
You: So you would lean primarily towards romantic love?
Stranger: not exactly a warm and fuzzy way to reach that answer
Stranger: yeah
Stranger: I'm not really a fuck and run kind of guy
Stranger: which goes against my whole evolutionary way of thinking about it
You: Well, as opposed to 'love thy neighbor'/ family/friends type love.
Stranger: but that's fine, I'm not really a cold hearted scientist anyway
Stranger: oh
Stranger: hmm
You: Though there's overlap.
Stranger: yeah
Stranger: I love my friends and family
Stranger: I want everybody to be happy and prosper in their own way
Stranger: why not?
Stranger: why bother wasting time with wars and conflict over property?
Stranger: or between countries or in the different systems we put up around ourselves?
You: Search me.
Stranger: Love surpasses all of that. You can be happy with love, no matter what situation you're in
Stranger: so I choose love.
Stranger: mhmm
You: It was nice talking with you!
Stranger: same
Stranger: have a good day
You: Good luck with your survey!

As a side note: When we were kids we had this (hilarious) practical joke in which you asked someone ‘Are you PT?’ If they said ‘yes’ you shouted, “Ha! You’re a pregnant teenager!” If they said ‘no’ you exclaimed, “You’re not potty-trained?!” It was all very entertaining.

You: Quick! What's the meaning of life?!
Stranger: sleep eat die
You: You think?
Stranger: no u jus put me on the spot
Stranger: lol
Stranger: wats ur answer
You: Maybe love?
Stranger: so without love there is no point of living?
You: Hmm...
You: I think there are no circumstances in which you are incapable of love.
Stranger: yea but wat if u jus never happen to come across love is ur life less meaninful than others
You: But that assumes only romantic love. There are many types of love.
Stranger: there are still some people in this worl who never experience love. they are few granted but still may exsit
You: Do you believe you have to experience love to be capable of loving others?
Stranger: maybe not
Stranger: it would be pretty sad to love some1 and never have know love itself. i feel sad for that person
