Male penises? Aren't they all male?
You should meet the people I hung out with in university....

They'd call you 'problematic' for saying that. Maybe there is a reason I don't hang out with them anymore.

I get called that a lot. :cry:

This resolves the question definitively. Yay.
Rory keeps claiming, erroneously, that I do not accept the idea that buddhahood can be attained in female form.

Re: Jim Carrey does a no-self bit

Just watched Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond - Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton, which I found very interesting. I think it sheds a lot of light on what's going on with him and is definitely related to the topic of this thread.

Re: Importance of Memory in Dharma

Rebirth is the flying spaghetti monster of Buddhism.

Personally, I would say that karma vipaka is the true flying spaghetti monster of Buddhism.

OK, the text is called "kun tu bzang po'i dgongs nyams" and this appears to be the Wylie transliteration: http://rywiki.tsadra.org/index.php/kun_tu_bzang_po'i_dgongs_nyams There's another translation in Van Schaik's "Approaching The Great Perfection", as well as the Wylie.

Re: The Only Capitol of Israel

Thankful to all for pointing out flaws regarding this thread (and my other personal failings).
