Greetings twelph,

I'll let you into a little secret...
The two smileys are clinking glasses of carrot-juice spiders!
kind regards,

Ben

in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

If you see any unskillful speech (or other action) from me let me know, so I can learn from it.

Buddhist-Politically correct translations of similies:

:toast: = non-alcoholic beer
:stirthepot: = vegan stew
:woohoo: = mudita, not exhuberance
:hug: = karuna
:heart: = metta
:smile: = upekkha
:computerproblem: = technical difficulties, no actual anger involved
:guns: = Olympic target shooting, not the bad guns
:zzz: = meditating during sleep (as opposed to the other way around)
:pig: = got hungry and ate dinner

:mrgreen:
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

Would be nice to have smilies representing 3 symbolic Buddhist offering of flower, candle, and incense.
