Re: Adderal & its effects?

. The first example is anorexia in China, and how the disorder was extremely rare there until China started to consume US media. I don't think it's fair to blame USA for everything.

Re: What would you do with your life if you were FI and had no ties with anybody?

I don't think anyone wakes up in the morning on day one thinking today Imma start a cult. Just like militaries, it depends on from among whom they're recruiting, what types of people they're attracting, what is the motivation for joining for the people attracted to it. Kṛṣṇa says 4 types of pious pe...

Re: Supreme Court ruling on Trump Financial Records

Pardon me for not betting but anyone wanting to contest any election here has to publicize income-tax returns for the last 5 years of self, spouse and dependents. This is done via an affidavit, so the judiciary is involved, which includes the asset allocation (domestic & intl), education and crimina...

Re: deviant financial strategies and a greenhouse

@Alphaville I've heard only good things about the Israeli model for efficient farming methods but didn't know there was a name for it. I read kibbutzim as kibbutism but cursory search showed it is actually the plural form. Other thing I admire about Israel is how the language was revived. How preval...

Interesting because the Parsee way of returning to the soil is laying the corpse to sundry while vultures devour the carcass. If they can give up on their proper funeral rites in other countries interfaith marriage should've been no big deal.
