I love Diogenes! Apparently, he would patrol around town with his lantern and when people asked what he was doing, he'd respond that he was looking for a decent human and he hasn't found one yet. Literally, the creator of Cynicism. School of Cynics!

It’s still weird seeing how words like troll and noob become mainstream pretty annoying too.

Also, supposedly lived in a giant wine barrel, or wore a wine barrel. Hence, whenever you see some crazy bastard in a barrel screaming the "end is coming" in a movie, it's a reference to him.

Best story about Diogenes was when he fucked with Alexander the Great. Alexander held Diogenes in high regard for choosing to live such a simplistic life, despite all the amenities that would be available to him as a scholar and philosopher (for those that don't know, Diogenes chose to live off the land and the donations of passer-bys, sleeping in a tipped-over barrel in an alleyway). The story goes that one day Alexander visited Diogenes in his ramshackle hovel to share his admirations to the philosopher, and offered Diogenes anything he might want or need. Diogenes replied (paraphrasing)"You could get out of my sunlight to start". Diogenes had to have the heaviest set of brass balls ever known.

He was also naked 95% of the time, and reportedly jerked off in front of high-level politicians and socialites on the regular.

Yes, he said if only it was as easy to quell hunger by rubbing one's stomach as it was to quell sexual desire by rubbing one out.

Wasn't that normal for poor people to be naked in Greece?

We won't know how much is myth and how much is real. But the short tales about Diogenes high jinx are legendary.

Same problem with Socrates. We can't even prove whether he existed or was made up by Plato.

When athens was preparing for war, he got out of his barrel (that he lived in) and started rolling it up and down the hill. When someone asked why he answered that everyone else was running around looking busy so he thought he should too.

He also masturbated in public, arguing that if he could get rid of hunger by scratching his belly he'd do that too.

Alexander the great visited his barrel and introduced himself. He asked the philosopher if there was anything he could do for him. Diogenes thought for a moment and asked him to step to one side as he was blocking the sun.

He wasn't just an asshole either, he said he did all those things because he believed it would help people understand their own shortcomings and arrogance.
