    This is some cross country skiers going up my street. We had a snow storm last night and everything has been closed: schools, my girlfriends work, and my tutoring at the library all closed.

    @Jeffrey , did you mean to post that in 'Funny Stuff'... or was it meant for 'general banter'...?

  • JeffreyJeffrey Veteran Veteran

    @federica I meant Funny Stuff because I find it funny that day after snowstorm people are skiing up the road

    To us in the UK, that would bring the whole country to a halt. 1" of snow is critical. 3" would be life-threatening. 6"...? "The End is Nigh!!"

    Meditative concentration or just old age?

    I’d guess old age... my stepfather is nearly at this stage, he often forgets things.

    Meditative Old Age.... ;)

    “More than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other, to total extinction. Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.”

    Once there was a monk who was an expert on the Diamond Sutra, and as books were very valuable in his day, he carried the only copy in his part of the world on his back. He was widely sought after for his readings and insight into the Diamond Sutra, and very successful at propounding its profundities to not only monks and masters but to the lay people as well.

    Thus the people of that region came to know of the Diamond Sutra, and as the monk was traveling on a mountain road, he came upon an old woman selling tea and cakes. The hungry monk would have loved to refresh himself, but alas, he had no money. He told the old woman, "I have upon my back a treasure beyond knowing -- the Diamond Sutra. If you will give me some tea and cakes, I will tell you of this great treasure of knowledge."

    The old woman knew something of the Diamond Sutra herself, and proposed her own bargain. She said, "Oh learned monk, if you will answer a simple question, I will give you tea and cakes." To this the monk readily agreed. The woman then said, "When you eat these cakes, are you eating with the mind of the past, the mind of the present or the mind of the future?"

    No answer occurred to the monk, so he took the pack from his back and got out the text of the Diamond Sutra, hoping he could find the answer. As he studied and pondered, the day grew late and the old woman packed up her things to go home for the day.

    "You are a foolish monk indeed," said the old woman as she left the hungry monk in his quandary. "You eat the tea and cakes with your mouth."

    Brings to mind that debate between the Tibetan Lama and the Zen Monk...

    "Doesn't he know what an orange is?"

    My husband was running an errand for me last night:

    "salad, fries, milk. salad, fries, milk. salad, fries, milk. salad, fries, milk. salad, fries, milk. salad, fries, milk."

    Do you want me to write it down?

    No, it's only fries, milk..... and what else....?

    His mind went blank.

    Pro tip saying for when you are trading insults with someone:

    I’m manufactured from Hevea brasiliensis you’re manufactured from Cyanoacralate and your admonition elastically rebounds off of me and adheres to you!

    My H always says "The bovine scatology has been in collision with the variable-speed 3-blade rotating ventilator"... To which I replied, "Oscillation optional...?"

    "Oh, mandatory" he would retort, with a wise professor-look on his face...

    Much the same thing...
