YOLO stands for You Only Live Once.  It is the philosophy that the life we are now living is the only we will ever have so we should make the best use of it by doing those things which bring us the greatest amount of pleasure now.  Like any other philosophy it needs to be tested by comparing it with what the Bible teaches.
