This thread gave me a real chuckle. Can't get past the title however. Superfluous Selam just sounds like something ones body needs to get rid of when sick.

Selam

Or rather:
Selam. Selam. Just to make it superfluous.

Fanfic I want to see: the worlds of Person of Interest and X-Files collide, with Mulder becoming good (if antagonistic) friends with Finch, and Dana Scully having a fling with Root. Skinner is co-opted by the government, but at the last second he redeems himself by holding off the evil government forces and sacrifices his life so that the good guys can get away.

Buddhism was never big in India except when military conquerors promoted it. It's an East Asian thing. For India, quite satisfied religiously, it was a solution in search of a problem.

This is really pretty nonsensical. All the East Asian Buddhisms were dependent for centuries on the flourishing schools in India. Likewise prominent Hindu schools (e.g. Advaita Vedanta) arose in response to Buddhism, so it could hardly be called a solution in search of a problem.

The Samkhya and the Yoga, possibly. But the Vedanta? If we're denigrating Hinduism as reactive, perhaps at most we could say the Vedanta were a reaction to Christianity. But if you're one of those posters that can't seem to differentiate between Christianity and Buddhism, this could explain your claim.

I'm with the camp of 13 million Americans that believe politicians are, or are controlled by, Reptilians. I think only monks can solve this problem. It doesn't seem right that they prefer to ignore it.

My dog barks some. Mentally, you picture my dog, but I have not told you the type of dog which I have. Perhaps you might even picture Toto from The Wizard of Oz, but I can tell you my dog is always with me...Selam!!!
