Don't matter, bro

Nothing matters: The idea of nihilism has always interested me. I don't believe in it, but some people do.
(from the Latin nihil, nothing) is the philosophical doctrine suggesting that values do not exist but rather are falsely invented. Most commonly, nihilism is presented in the form of existential nihilism which argues that life[1] is without meaning, purpose, or intrinsic value.
Keeping records: I just got a press release saying that so-and-so just set a new record at Somewhere Speedway. All newsmen cringe when they hear that. You can't set an old record; it has to be a new one.

Dialogue: I'm editing a book that doesn't have dialogue. The book reads pretty well otherwise. But it's easier to read a book with dialogue, whether it's fiction or non-fiction.
