Re: boring questions about losing weight

I managed to lose 30 lbs. over a period of months by cutting down on high calorie starches like potatoes and bread and cutting sugar out. It's really important to just drink water or unsweetened tea rather than juices or sugary drinks. That one vector alone can account for a huge amount of calories ...

Re: Dudjom Yangsi Dorje Drollö empowerment Toronto

Probably not Pema Sogthig. Probably the outer Drollo sadhana, both are mind treasures. Hmmmm... i wonder. He mentioned it was Dudjom Rinpoche's heart practice as well as his own. Are the root mantras the same? That would be one way to determine. Identical. I have received them both. Pema Sogthig is...

Re: Football World Cup.

Soccer is a great sport, but the dives and cheaters are bad for the sport, imo. There are far too many players doing fake dives; it is basically cheating, imo. It is dishonest from a Dharmic perspective, un-sportsmanlike and has no place in sport. In (ice) hockey it is rarely to almost never done, ...

I don't like football much but I was rooting for Croatia. Shame. :(
I am outraged at the result. There was a CLEAR referee error! After Brozovic megged Pogba with a backheel, they should have stopped play and awarded Croatia the trophy. How could they miss that?!

http://www.interglacial.com/pub/text/Umberto_Eco_-_Eternal_Fascism.html Here's an interesting article by Umberto Eco on what Fascism is.

Unfortunately, Mexico loses.

In the Belgium win, what a goal in the final seconds! The team literally sprinted down the field to score in the final seconds.
What a crazy second half! That Vertonghen header was redonculous.

I agree that a business should be able to refuse to provide services in the case of being asked to support things they do not (the Nazi example is apropos there), but in some of these cases that is not what happened at all. What happened was some gay people ordered a cake and got turned down solely...
