    Smile He lived a very wild life

    He lived a very wild life and ended up being killed by a couple of gangsters.



    Does the bolded part mean "He lived a very foolish, unreasonable, or undisciplined life?" Thanks.

    Undisciplined? Most probably...
    Unreasonable? Depends...
    Foolish? No way!

    But he ended by being killed - does that not perhaps imply that he was foolish in some way?

    Logically, yes. But I was just expressing a personal attitude. Perhaps it should matter more how much you enjoy life while it lasts and not so much how you die. Anyway, everyone's free to make their own choices.
