‘Mayans were right, world is ending’ - Julia Gillard

“The end of world is coming. It wasn’t Y2K, it wasn’t even the carbon price,” said Gillard firmly. “It turns out that the Mayan calendar is true.” More here
Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

Yes, proof that the world is coming to an end; the fact that this is the most popular music video on the planet:

Even worse....Madonna and Psy perform together, off key and without any noticeable coordination !

Thanks, David. I quite enjoyed that! :twothumbsup: I'm not even being cheeky (well, maybe a bit).

A couple of weeks ago my two kids, 5, and 6, came across that video on youtube. My daughter loved it then, and watched it over, and over and over again. Then she would go "whoop-whoop-gangnamstyle" randomly through out the day. :jumping: She did that for more than a week.

Certainly the world is going to implode in on itself due to this "music" video with over 1,000,000 views. It made both myself and this chap appreciate a Justin Beiber music video. And that just shouldn't happen, EVER!

fortunately someone did fix the out of tune talking (how is that possible)
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
