I understand, but I find my (our) position more pathetic than theirs. Not doing things to avoid say/do/act in a nosense/stupid way is pathetic. It is not pathetic to have fun, to do nosense/stupid/ridiculous stuff (which is being authentic in the end), and to assume them, correct them, and probably learn for it.
Their are more human in a way than us, and imho we are more pathetic than them. (Talking on taking drugs for fun from time to time, and of course obviating health issues and so).
So, I share how you act, but I don't agree with your opinions. Don't feel superior because in a way, we are the pathetics here.
