George W. Bush Returns To America After Spending 4 Years In The Himalayas

He actually looks afghani in that photo.
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

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.

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.
"When you meditate, don't send your mind outside. Don't fasten onto any knowledge at all. Whatever knowledge you've gained from books or teachers, don't bring it in to complicate things. Cut away all preoccupations, and then as you meditate let all your knowledge come from what's going on in the mind. When the mind is quiet, you'll know it for yourself. But you have to keep meditating a lot. When the time comes for things to develop, they'll develop on their own. Whatever you know, have it come from your own mind.

I thought there was precedence to this (one of the funniest things I ever heard; he owned Donald Rumsfeld):

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!
