He actually looks afghani in that photo.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”

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

I had always suspected he had Taliban roots. Family quarrels are the worst, they say! On the other hand there is the reptilian hypothesis, which is equally compelling.

Now I'll go back to being dour.

The reptilian hypothesis?

The Onion rules!!! :)
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.'

David Icke beleives that reptiles from another dimension are controlling human society. Lots on youtube and still not as scary as someone like bush having been elected president by a presumably mostly sane population.

He managed to ask Donald Rumsfeld if he ever ate mexican babies in a way that Rumsfeld couldn't explode in (lizard) anger.

Louis CK is the man!
