    Miller has not been involved with the VTP for some time now, and yes the "Times" article was posted on the Secrets forum, but quickly deleted.

    Health Ministry Warns Of Mormon Outbreak

    Yes, and there is a Mormon church in Bangkok. Do you suppose that it's filled with white boys from Utah or Thais?

    Zhuangzi on uselessness Now, a soaring imagination may be wild and wonderful, but it is extremely impractical and often altogether useless. Indeed, Huizi, Zhuangzi's friend and philosophical foil, chides him for this very reason. But Zhuangzi expresses disappointment in him: for his inability to sense the use of this kind of uselessness is a kind of blindness of the spirit. The useless has use, only not as seen on the ordinary level of practical affairs. It has a use in the cultivation and nurturing of the 'shen' (spirit), in protecting the ancestral and preserving one's life, so that one can last out one's natural years and live a flourishing life. Now, this notion of a flourishing life is not to be confused with a 'successful' life: Zhuangzi is not impressed by worldly success. A flourishing life may indeed look quite unappealing from a traditional point of view. One may give up social ambition and retire in relative poverty to tend to one's shen and cultivate one's xing (nature, or life potency). I like the life potency aspect, so I think I'll just xing-it :nahnah:

    Noble Chinese philosopher Zhuangzi said: "being useless has merit." Go in peace worthless one.
  14. Seems the anti-smoker brigade has some help: Quit it, billionaires encourage smokers By SARA KUGLER Microsoft founder Bill Gates and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg are pooling their piles of money to pour $375 million into a global effort to cut smoking. The billionaire philanthropists, who have a combined worth of more than $70 billion, said Wednesday that the money will help efforts in developing countries where tobacco use is highest. There are more than one billion smokers worldwide. The $250 million from Bloomberg and $125 million from Gates will support projects that raise tobacco taxes, help smokers quit, ban tobacco advertising and protect nonsmokers from exposure to smoke. It will also aid efforts to track tobacco use and better understand tobacco control strategies. ''Together we can make a clear, measurable difference -- not just for ourselves and our generation but for the generations that come after us,'' Bloomberg said. ...That money goes toward tobacco-fighting campaigns in low- and middle-income countries, most specifically China, India, Indonesia, Russia and Bangladesh. Bloomberg Philanthropies is also conducting a survey to better understand smoking in those countries. The Gates Foundation has until now focused most of its world health dollars on fighting malaria, AIDS and other diseases. The anti-tobacco campaign represents a new direction for the Seattle-based organization, which since 2006 has also been charged with giving away billions from investor Warren Buffett. Link
  15. Here's one for you frede: It seems that this is a movement whose time has come, because today the island nation of Niue has become the first country in the world to propose a complete smoking ban anywhere within its territory. Could Thailand be next? Behold Niue
