    Ha ha, I think a future Mrs. Bunks would figure you wouldn't mind the pain of having it redone with her name if you really love her.
    :grin:

    The other alternative is that she change her name to Angela - if she loves me enough she'll be willing I'm sure! =)

    Its on a knife edge ! Hung parliament? Coalition? We will have to wait and see.

    Great! You'll be in the same boat Australia has been for a decade.

    No laws get passed and the major parties compromise their principles to please the likes of Mr Fish Finger.....

    Good times!!

    Where do the Zen folk stand on rebirth?

    Moment to moment :)

    What about after the moment the physical heart stops beating?

    You might find this of interest @Bunks.... Alan Watts on "Rebirth" (however he uses the term reincarnation) It goes for around 15 minutes , if you don't want to listen to all, then start at 10 minutes into the video.... :)

    Thanks @Shoshin - I love it when he says "Just as the flame is the conversion of wax into gas, so you and I are the conversion of air, and water, and light, and beef steak, and milk into.......shit"

    :)

    Suck it up princess!! :)

    Na, just kidding. That looks scary.

    For all the fuss made about deadly creatures in Australia, when you live in the middle of suburbia (as most of the population do), the worst you can expect is the odd ant sting and maybe seeing a huntsman spider (harmless!) on the wall once in a while. It's not like we're dodging crocodiles on the way to work every day!
