What is your philosophy?
Putting all religious beliefs aside, assume that when you die, it is the end of your existence. With this in mind, I ask you this question; would rather live in the moment, wherein you do not care of the consequences of your actions in terms of its affects on your life span, such as partying, drinking, smoking, doing dangerous stunts, etc., or would you rather live by playing it safe so as to live as long as possible before you cease to exist. Some may view this as a matter of quantity verse quality and choose to take bigger risks in life, commonly assured by the saying "you only have one life to live". On the other hand its still more than possible to live a meaningful life all the while being cautious.
I am simply curious to how the majority of people see this issue, so I put that question out to you RF members.
