I still can't wrap my head around anyone supporting Beto O'Rourke. That has got to be the most vapid and vain campaign. My cynical guess is they are not very bright grown up alterna-chicks who like a man who can wear a dress and silly millennials.
Did I miss Beto in a dress???

Some very interesting results from this early-days-yet poll. Looks like the Bernie Bros. may make some strange choices (points #1-4).

Nothing in this and other worlds is everlasting. :namaste:
True. But, just as with the Bamiyan Buddhas, it is still sad to see something very old that brings beauty to the world and joy to many people destroyed.

Re: Dealing with stress

When feeling stress such as you mention, I've always found it helpful to take a walk or jog, as physical activity can lower adrenaline levels in the body. Get out of your head, as it were. And as amanitamusic said, if you flunk, you can try again. The second time around is usually easier because you...

Is this the style of prostrations you are doing? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3sTpXDY_xss If so, the you will need to work primarily on thighs, glutes (butt), and abs.

Re: Readability of Usernames

Maybe the difference is that the "East Asian" languages use characters rather than letters. It's much easier for a native English speaker to try to parse a transliteration than the characters, which tell a non-East Asian speaker nothing at all - what the sounds are, the meaning, nada. So for example...

Re: time traveling?

Religion is politics, most likely Dharamsala has made secret agreements with european and american governments and churches about what they will say to the naive and unsuspecting western and worldwide buddhist audiences.

Sounds good, but I don't think it'll play nearly as well in the red states, some of which have to go blue or we're stuck with the current occupant of the WH again.
