Satisfaction - I am convinced that I will get fully satisfied after my death. Will my theory confirm?
Energy - Coffee and cigarettes – that’s how I start my day.
Creator - It must be some higher power, but I am not precising it. It is something that moved the universe, and that is the thing that distinguishes it from the others.

Theory - I know it may sound depressing, but I know, that human will achieve complete happiness after death.
