    No, but I would probably die to prove a point.

    I wonder if anyone considers the children killed by the nazi on the rampage in Norway as having died for a cause?

    Right now, there is no cause I would want to die for.

    Hypothetically, there are definately potential causes I could aquire in the future that I would die for if needed. Thinking about @jenocyde's new little project, having and protecting ones own children would be one such cause I can think of.

    But I think I would exploit any and every possibility I can think of to avoid the dilemma alltogether.

    There was a quote I recall from the situationists, "Those who would die/fight for a cause are yet to make their own life a cause worth fighting for".

    Always made me think, while I dont think situationism was of any importance at all.

    I would die for some cube shaped objects with dots on them.

    Also for staining pigments.

    That's too broad of a definition. In that case, your "cause" of death could be cancer.

    As would I!

    *starts to feel poetic*
    As would I
    I would die
    for some die
    or some dye.

    Would you cry
    "Why oh why"
    if I dyed?

    Yes.

    If you dont stand for something you'll fall for anything.
