    Here's a rule for you: Quit whining!

    QFFT!

    Success isn't to be found in playing by the rules, or in railing against them. It is in exploiting them: presenting a respectable appearance, but all the while doing your own damn thing.

    If most people wouldn't follow the rules, you propably wouldn't sit in your comfortable chair browsing TypoC, making sarcastic remarks about people who "waste" their lives following the rules.

    Unreasonable intellectual elitism is rarely funny.

    Go read Walden by Henry David Thoreau.
    It's inspiring.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    We need sheeple to follow the rules so we can exploit them.

    Seriously though, most revolutionaries broke the rules of their respective fields to bring us great innovations. Darwain challenged religion, Einstein science, Gates computers, Jobs did computers again. Also they all had day jobs.

    The opinion here is pretty mixed. some people say it rewards people who breaks the rules. some people say it punishes people who don't follow the rules, and there is no reward for following rules. And then some say it rewards people who breaks the rules and get away with it.

    There is reward for following the rules, in school , you get rewarded with good grades if you follow the teacher's instruction, in society you get rewarded with money from your boss. The chances are it is far more likely to reward people who follow the rules than those who doesn't.

    I never said I was special. And yes I am pretty unremarkable and stupid.

    Come in here, Dear boy, have a cigar.
    You're gonna go far,
    You're gonna fly high,
    You're never gonna die,
    You're gonna make it, if you try;
    They're gonna love you.
    Well I've always had a deep respect,
    And I mean that most sincere.
    The band is just fantastic,
    that is really what I think.
    Oh by the way, which one's Pink?

    And did we tell you the name of the game, boy?
    We call it Riding the Gravy Train.

    Okay, then.

    What else is there to do? Or am I just supposed to do nothing?

    That is NOT breaking the rules, that is being a selfish, immature person. I quit cutting in line when I was 7. Think about it. You don't take a shat on your fellow man while you are trying to find some unknown truth. Ethics are mandatory--or at least a basic code of conduct--when questionning authority and the status quo, otherwise what do you really have in the end? You end up a scrooge.
