Philosophy is really simple. If one has no excess energy one can do nothing. If one has any excess energy one can do one of five things with any external or internal thing.
1. Interact with it in the here and now.
2. Put it aside for potential future interaction.
3. Recycle it.
4. "Dispose" of it.
5. "Ignore it."
This is all there is to anything.
Philosophy is simply anything one can imagine or do, and one can only do one of the above five things.

The love for knowladge. The longing for it.
Socrotes brought it into homes of men and ignorance and self destruction drove it out. The perfection of human nature. The ability to take any event and look at it with a rational and open minded point of view without being subjective. Remaining calm threw any tragedy and appreciating beauty in everything.
Shane: Wow stop and look at the clouds and the sky and the pure innocence of nature.
Dave: {laughing} Thats so funny.
Shane: It hurts how much you dont know but it is just philosophy helping me appreciate life.
Dave: What?

The love of wisdom, in so far as the pursuit of happiness. As practiced by the ancient Greeks, philosophy informed one's whole way of life, much akin to modern day Eastern religions such as Buddhism and Taoism.

Hate and attacked by ugly emu chicks and guys with small penises.
Inbred Bush-supporter:
"Philosophy majors, fuck them. Nevermind that our whole system of society, science, and government would collapse without the love of wisdom, everybody should be staring at my tiny penis even if they need a microscope. Oh, and worshipping Jesus, cause' my stupid religion involves 100% no knowledge. Can't have philosophy without knowledge."

Me:
"Why sir, the rising tide of anti-intellectua examplified in your retarded rhetoric is the reaon why we have intelligent desing in the schools and Bush in the whitehouse."

Inbred Bush supporter:
"Whatever, just make sure I can get my budweiser and a junker to get me to church every Sunday, brainiac."
