The second amendment was originally instituted in order ensure the right of southern militias to fetch escaped slaves.

i always thought it was a snub towards the British who outlawed civilians to have guns during the revolution.

I would secretly buy canisters of capsaicin based tear gas and snort it. The burn marks under my nostrils was a giveaway, so I had to come clean one day, admit my addiction and go into rehab.

Isn't it usually a bad idea to hang out with other junkies, though?

Re: World Bee Day

We had bees where i grew up. Very good to have honey. Wise persons food and one of the five pures. :sage: Since I have this space for some catharsis... I'll never forget the time my mother decided to make me a bee costume for a second grade project. Obviously she thought this was the cutest thing e...

Re: deadliest mass shooting in the U.S.

I dunno, Greg. I mean, it seems like countries with greater gun constraints also have more constraints on other things, too. Aussies have more constraints on both guns and on the internet, for example. I think that essentially equals less freedom. Children scared of being shot dead while trying to ...

Re: If you had to explain what Buddhahood is....

How long is a string? It seems to either stagnate or derail once i sense that it's coming. Very hard to explain. I agree about the dose being the poison. Did I say the dose was poison? Lol. "Good medicine tastes bitter," though I really have no idea of knowing what you've actually been doing. ...Ha...

Re: If you had to explain what Buddhahood is....

To enter ultimate reality and see things as they really are. Awakening to the infinite perfection of life. Never coming back to suffering again. But have you heard that samsara and nirvana are ultimately the same? Indeed. It's always been that way. But difficult to grasp in a storm of vasanas and a...

Re: Quote by ChNNR about Dzogchen and God - where is it from?

PS: not saying it has to be interpreted this way, I'm just saying those passages don't neccessarily have to be taken literally. And thus begins the program of interpreting sūtras and tantras according to what one wishes they said, instead of what they actually say and what authentic masters such as...

Re: deadliest mass shooting in the U.S.

One school shooting is already one school shooting too many as far as I am concerned. Some here may be happy to give some leeway and say that it is okay for one school shooting a month, for example, but I really fail to see the logic behind this thinking. And it is not just a case of instituting bu...
