Ethereal, time-lapse photos of sleeping couples I recently stumbled onto.
I wanted to love this article, so I was disappointed when I didn’t. The author makes the wonderful point that the current frenzy for meditation as competitive edge is anathema to the Buddha’s intention. Then he goes on to ask, does meditation do what it’s supposed to do? Does it end suffering? He cites an empathy exercise he did in his own lab to demonstrate that yes, meditation increases empathy. And therefore lessens suffering for all! The end! Maybe it’s the lady who can suffer from boundary issues in me, but I’m not buying the easy correlation. What do you think?
LOVE Amanda Palmer’s song to the Daily Mail’s obnoxious lady-parts-focused review of her concert.
Religious scholar Reza Aslan is brilliant with this befuddled newscaster who cannot seem to get over the fact that he’s a MUSLIM writing about JESUS. The nerve! But it’s Fox. C’mon, ya gotta know this is what you’re in for, and at least TRY to bridge out of it with your actual talking points. Comms 101.
The 14-year-old who wrote the sign saying “Jesus Isn’t A Dick So Keep Him Out of My Vagina” responds to Internet attacks. BADASS.
