"You Only Live Once"

Many people associate "yolo" in today's culture. Many of them believe that Drake is SO awesome for coming up with this saying. No. Suicide Silence did; their song "You Only Live Once" was released before Drake's "Motto". There ya go kids, you dumb fucks.

Also, the term "yolo" does not mean to go party hard every night and fuck every damn object you see while you're wasted. And please, go do something with your life that actually pertains to "yolo".
"YOLO!"

Drake: "You only live once: that's the motto, n**ga, YOLO"

Suicide Silence: "You only live once, so just go f**king nuts!"

The fourth type of rhetorical persuasion, aside from logos, pathos, and ethos. Posited by Aristotle in Ancient Greece and revived by college students in the 21st century.

An argument in this style generally takes the form of yelling "YOLO" at your buds until they give into doing whatever unwise decision you're recommending.
Student #1: "Mark won't come out tonight, what should I tell him?"

Student #2: "Use the yolos method to get him over here."
