Ran across this while on reddit, thought it was kind of neat.  I'm not sure if this is a repost, but I thought I remembered seeing it posted before.  I searched the boards for anything census related and didn't see one.
Existence is a choice.   There is no chaos in the world, only complexity.   Knowledge of the complex is wisdom.   From wisdom of the world comes wisdom of the self.   Mastery of the self is mastery of the world. Loss of the self is the source of suffering.   Suffering is a choice, and we can refuse it.
It is in our power to create the world, or destroy it.
—An excerpt from The Qun, Canto 1

Its been posted on here a couple of times, once by me. Good to have it back, since there are new people here now.


That number has considerably grown since I last saw it.
I always wondered why having balls was equated with "strength".  Balls are sensitive and delicate, actually.   Better to grow a vagina.  Those things can take a pounding - and pop out a live human being the size of a watermelon.

In the time it took me to fill it out and validate, they census grew by 20.  :shock:


Gonna check that out. :)
Which means that to me the offer of certainty, the offer of complete security, the offer of an impermeable faith that can\'t give way, is the offer of something not worth having.
Take the risk of thinking for yourself. Much more happiness, truth, beauty & wisdom, will come to you that way.
