YOLO [2]

interjection; acronym
Acronym for "you only live once", signifying that hedonistic actions should be taken due to one's mortality. Used generally as a justification for poor decision making. Similar to the phrase "carpe diem", but with a more negative connotation.
 
I have an exam on Monday but I want to spend this weekend partying. Oh well, YOLO.
Etymology : You from Old English eow, form of þu, from West Germanic *iuwiz, from PIE *ju. Only from Old English ænlic "only, unique, solitary", from an"one" + -lic "-like". Live from Old English lifian "to be, to live, have life", from Proto-Germanic *liben, from PIE root *leip- "to remain, continue". Once from Old Enlish æne.
