    That's not really funny @swaroop.... that's actually anti-semitic and quite offensive...

    I'll give you a chance to reflect on how many compassionate, embracing and understanding people on here, you might be offending....

    Antisemitic? The cross and the Crescent are also there. I thought it was aimed at those people who believe in a creator God.

  • federicafederica seeker of the clear blue sky Moderator

    I don't need to pray.

    I'll just tell you.
    It's not funny, and it's not clever.

    Stop.

    Okay
    Sorry.

    I walked into the grocery store yesterday and realized there was no way I would get shopping done if I didn't use the restroom. I walked to the back of the store, and ran in the bathroom hoping I wasn't going to tinkle on myself. Swung the door open, and immediately thought "why the hell are there sinks on the wall"? I turned around and saw Adjua standing outside the door and she says " mommy...your in the mens room" :3. .... First time in my life I ever did that. Hahaha.

    I did something similar in London many years ago. Went to the local indoor swimming pool for a dip. Walked into the change rooms (which were empty thank god!), stripped completely naked and put my swimmers on. Carried my bag out and went for a swim.

    After my swim I went back to the change rooms but realised I'd gone into the Ladies earlier!!!

    I was just thankful no-one came in when I was in there initially.

    Maybe we can ask @SpinyNorman to bring some dromederian ice cream with a camel swirl.

    I don't think @SpinyNorman is coming...he's got the hump :winky:

    Our local sangha visited a cemetery recently to practice slow mindful walking, we got a couple of funny looks from passers-by who probably wondered if we were zombies or something. It would have been great if we'd all been wearing one of those hats. :p

    Cute hat! It looks like a popcorn stitch (in crochet) - my grandmother taught me to crochet, knit, embroider, needle work, crewel work, you name it. She made a gorgeous pink and gray afghan using a similar stitch.

    Oh. That wasn't funny? Well, how 'bout this?

    If nobody's taken you up on this, let me be the first. Seriously. Could be the NB equivalent of Tshirts!

    Does it come in black with gold ear lobes, with a hole for earrings, tassels etc?
    @Jayantha needs one as the Sangha stole his hair ...

    haha , I am a staunch buddha was bald kind of guy, so I'm already wearing the Buddha's hairstyle ;). And I also have plenty of winter clothing so I need nothing.

    I saw this on reddit about 5 days ago and made a joke " does it come in red", people actually started looking and I get a PM from someone saying his sister could knit me one if I wanted. Reactions I was not expecting from reddit.

    But the answer is yes, it comes in red, and other colors.

    As I have stated elsewhere, @Jayantha if you want one, I'll do one for you. At a bargain price... :tongue:

    Anyone interested in a rather unexpected Trump impression?

    I think it was very kind of him to not point out that his brain is also like that. Flapping and small...

    These are funny. I just want to mention that tonight is the 3rd annual Golden Goose awards for seemingly stupid science that led to breakthrough and scientific progress.

    http://www.goldengooseaward.org/history/

    Winners include studies on the effects of massage on infant rats and the sex life of the screwworm fly.
