Re: Revisiting Kiva

I'm sure you're right, David, but I think you missed my point so I have bolded it. I could put it another way, too: Amazon is trying to buy a social licence to continue operating the way it always has, i.e., unethically. I don't want to play along with that if there's a better option. I understood ...

Re: Revisiting Kiva

What's wrong with that connection is that Amazon is profoundly unethical in what it does and how it does it, and any charity which works with it is legitimising Amazon and making it even more of a monster. Amazon works with over one million charities, that one can designate to receive a portion of ...

Re: Revisiting Kiva

What's wrong with that connection to Amazon? People purchase from Amazon and a small portion goes to the charity of their choice and some have chosen kiva. I have my Amazon purchases set up to donate the small portion to Bhikkhu Bodhi's Buddhist Global Relief. Virtually no charity is perfect, but I ...

Re: The Veggie Enthusiast Corner

I think certain vegetables like Brussels sprouts release some kind of sulfur or smell when they are cooked too much and this is probably the reason why so many don't like to eat them, associating them with the smell. If it's not cooked too much, it probably wouldn't have that smell.

Re: Ageism or common sense?

The world champion at chess was 23 when he won it. St 19 he was already rated #1 in the world. It's very hard to compete at the top level there after even 35 or so, I don't think any top 10 players are really very old. Wilhelm Steinitz was 58 years old when he lost the world chess championship to L...

Nas daily

Nas daily is a pretty cool youtube channel. And I'm not just saying that because he's a Palestinian-Israeli. :tongue: He has lots of interesting subjects and almost all of his videos are just one minute. He's a very successful youtuber. Here is his brief life story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y...

Re: Samsara (2001 film) last scene discussion

Typically that metaphor is used to describe a pantheism of entering Divine union, as in merging with Brahma (Hinduism) or Ik Onkar (Sikhism). The ocean representing universal consciousness and the drop is a soul entering that divine ocean. If it's in regard to love, then it could mean going from the...

Re: The Veggie Enthusiast Corner

You don't have to use processed foods. They tend to be expensive. For protein, you want to have both grains and legumes regularly in your diet. Legumes are the pea and bean families, including lentils, tofu and peanuts. You can pick up dried lentils and beans in most supermarkets for cheap, and get...
