Who am I?

Words to scribble on the outhouse wall.

We have enough youth; how about a fountain of smart?

Artificial intelligence usually beats real stupidity.

Learn from your parent's mistakes...use birth control!

The gene pool could use a little chlorine.

Any Existentialists surfing around? Give us your take on the philosophy.

Sartre was the only self-declared existentialist among the major thinkers. For him the central idea of all existential thought is that existence precedes essence. For Sartre there is no God and therefore no fixed human nature that forces one to act. Man is totally free and entirely responsible for what he makes of himself. It is this freedom and responsibility that is the source of man's dread.
