YOLO = you only life once.

Therefore, when reflecting on the fact that you only live once, one would think you should proceed to exercise extreme caution in terms of safeguarding your life, and behaving rationally to maximize your long term happiness/success.

But no, YOLO is used to justify the exact opposite of what it should logically entail: reckless, dangerous, instinctive, irrational behavior. I seriously don't get it! The kind of behavior that YOLO is used to justify would be more appropriately justified by something like "don't worry, you live a sh!t ton of times, do whatever insane sh!t you feel like doing."

It's reflective of the notion that the goal of life is to maximize happiness and pleasure, and thereby individuals should seek to perform activities that maximize happiness and pleasure. Incidentally, for most people, these actives include getting drunk, getting laid, and performing stupid and dangerous stunts.
