  • Re: Fake Science

    Terrifying, for sure!

    I used to think my doctor was annoying because he would never prescribe me something unless I absolutely needed it and even then a minimal dose, making me have to go back again and again, if need be. I used to think it was because this way he could charge the government for my repeat visits. Maybe that's true or maybe he's on to something.

    Geez, can't we believe anything anymore? I clicked on "insightful" because "run for your lives" wasn't an option.

    Do most Buddhists then believe that happiness is not a positive state? That it is the absence of pain, ataraxia, a la Epicurus? Cuz that would be fascinating.

    It would be pretty interesting though....if it were true

    It's gonna take a while for the poll results to come in :lol:

    I was recently in a dilemma. I wanted to cut hair from long to baldy. However I look very scary to some people. More skinhead than ascetic. So I cut to reasonably short.

    I know what you mean @lobster, if I shaved my head I look scary too (or sick) so I try and avoid it. I think when you start balding is a good time to look at shaving your head because it looks better IMO. I know the point of this conversation is the fact that you don't need to shave your head to be Buddhist but lobsters comment made me think of how I look bald....you don't want to see that :lol:
