RE: Can you find it?

In the uk many comercial vehicles dont have mirrors, rear facing cameras are replacing them and they're small and hardly visible.

RE: What is the point of creating a thread …

Huh?

Anti women threads?

Bitter and frustrated?

What kind of response do you expect from women to anti women threads?

RE: What is the point of creating a thread …

You're making a joke there....aren't you?

Or maybe you didn't notice the irony.

The reflections of the headlight and in indicator are wrong.

RE: Don't get despondent.......

Just to put a trillion pounds into perspective...lets say you were to physically count out one trillion pound coins and it took on average one second to count each one (it actually would take much longer when you had reached the higher numbers, up to 17 seconds for each number.)
Now, if you were to count 24hours a day it would take a staggering 31,709.8 years to count one trillion pounds.
A trillion really is a big number.

RE: Don't get despondent.......

It would cost £70 trilion to give a million to 70 million, so 70 billion would be nowhere near enough.

RE: do you agree with slut shaming?

Slutty in the bedroom is good sometimes. Don't know what the male equivalent is though.

RE: Importance of science and spirituality in life.

I have spent quite some time with someone who had a spontaneous awakening. Sometimes 1 to 1 bit mainly in small groups. Sadly he passed away at the age of 96 having spent most of his life passing on his widom to anyone who turned up at his small house in Manchester.....

Not I, Not Other Than I. The life and teachings of Russel Williamd

"Russel Williams is one of the most remarkable enlightened spiritual teachers of our time. After an early life of extreme hardship—leaving school at the age of 11, and becoming an orphan shortly afterwards—he underwent a spiritual awakening at the age of 29. Since the late 1950s, he has been a spiritual teacher, and is still actively teaching now, at the age of 94. Previously, Russel has avoided publicity and never published any writings or transcripts of his talks, preferring to work quietly with small groups. This is the first time any details of his teachings or of his life have appeared in print. This book is partly a record of his teachings, and partly also the story of his extraordinary life. Working with well-known spiritual author Steve Taylor—who has attended Russel’s meetings regularly since the 1990s—Russel has created a profound text which will surely become known as a classic of spiritual literature."

RE: Importance of science and spirituality in life.

That depends what you mean by the divine. As most monotheist religions describe the Divine or God, you can only say that does not exist in Bhuddhism.
But there are forms of gods and demi gods in Buddhist teachings although the are regarded to be existing in different realms, praying to them would be pointless. A person coule practice Buddhism for a lifetime and never give these gods a single thought.
Then there are tantric deities which are reached through rituals, symbolism and yogic practices to evoke experiences that lead to enlightenment.
Another level of being which Bhuddist attempt to achieve through prayer and ritual is that of bodhisattva (enlightened being) through bodhi citta (enlightened mind)
It it totally accepted that none of these states can exist separate from ourselves as it's believed the true nature of things is no phenomenon can exist seaparate from any other. If there were a god, or gods they could not exist as a separate phenomenon......

**"Tantric meditational deities should not be confused with what different mythologies and religions might mean when they speak of gods and goddesses. Here, the deity we choose to identify with represents the essential qualities of the fully awakened experience latent within us. To use the language of psychology, such a deity is an archetype of our own deepest nature, our most profound level of consciousness. In tantra we focus our attention on such an archetypal image and identify with it in order to arouse the deepest, most profound aspects of our being and bring them into our present reality." (Introduction to Tantra: A Vision of Totality , p. 42)

RE: Football versus Soccer

Sometimes theres no time for strategy...wow

RE: Importance of science and spirituality in life.

It's interesting that out of all the religions only Buddhism concurs with many aspects of science. In fact with qiantum physics science is only just catching up with scientific knowledge taught over two thousand uear ago in Buddhism. Also, as in science, Buddhism does not support the idea of a creator.

RE: Importance of science and spirituality in life.

Especially the Catholic Church....

"The Catholic Church murdered and torched its way through entire continents in a way that modern Jihadists could only dream of."

RE: Importance of science and spirituality in life.

That doesnt make it true, it's just a belief held by a minority.

I saw Pulp do Common People at Glastonbury 1995. Considered to be one of the best performances of that decade at Glasto.

RE: Supplement 's

New research on omega 3 fish oils suggests it's not as beneficial as we have been lead to believe, particularly when it comes to heart disease. For years we've been told of the benefits of omega 3 fish oil and suplements have been many peoples way of taking omega 3. However as far as helping to prevent heart disease, there is now clear evidence that taking omega 3 suplements over a period of time does not reduce the chances of developing heart disease, or have any effect on cholesterol levels. In fact there is a suggestion that LDL cholesterol levels could increase by taking omega 3 suplements.....Not that the likes of Holland and Barrat are going to tell you that.

RE: Supplement 's

That's way more than your body needs. Anything over 100mg is mainly disposed of through the kidneys. Also you could, without realising, cross over the recommended daily limit for vitamin C by consuming large amounts of fruit as well.
But, the bottom line is, 100 mg per day is enough, anything above that is totally unnecessary.

"Vitamin C dissolves in water and is not stored in the body, so we do need a consistent supply to maintain adequate levels,” says registered dietitian Jillian Greaves. “The recommended daily intake is about 75 mg per day for women and 90 mg per day for men.” For women, you could get more than your daily requirement by eating one kiwi and men could have half a papaya and call it a day.

The real problem with taking more vitamin C than you need is that it all goes to waste. “Up to 100 mg a day of vitamin C will get almost completely absorbed, says Francesco-Maria Serino, MD, PhD. “Above 100 mg a day and the fraction of vitamin C absorbed is progressively smaller. If you take more than 1 gram (1000 mg) of vitamin C per day, less than 50% is actually absorbed and it’s eliminated by the kidneys.”

That literally means that a 500 mg vitamin C supplement mostly gets peed down the drain."

RE: religious beliefs about alcohol

What has that got to do with my post?

RE: something happened?

What happened is the forums have become overrun by word game threads and a daily forum flooder posting endlessly in his countless threads to which virtually nobody answers.

In a word....boring.

RE: religious beliefs about alcohol

Any amount of alcohol affects the mind, that's why it's advised against (not forbidden) in Buddhism. It would be rare for a practicing buddhist to take alcohol as this would be seen as potential to adversely affect clarity of mind.

RE: religious beliefs about alcohol

Nope....just a little (sarcasm) joke.

RE: religious beliefs about alcohol

Yes Knott End has a certain charm. Went along the coastal path to Pilling. Was in Glasson dock today, that's another sleepy backwater near you.

RE: religious beliefs about alcohol

I was on the Wyre ferry from Fleetwood to Knott End last week with my bike. Then had a nice cycle around the Fylde
