Nepal to probe mystery ‘Buddha’ boy

Authorities in Nepal urged religious groups and scientists on Sunday to help solve the mystery of a meditating teenaged boy who some believe is an incarnation of Buddha.

At least 100,000 devotees from Nepal and neighbouring India have flocked in recent weeks to a dense forest in southeastern Nepal to see 15-year-old Ram Bahadur Bamjon, who, his associates say, has been meditating without food or water for six months.

Full story: Reuters.

He’s not the first persont to claim to not need food or water.

Giving thanks

I’ll spare you posting Burrough’s “Thanksgiving Prayer,” as I’m sure many others will do today. I’ll also spare you a rant on the brutal rape the Native Americans suffered (and continue to suffer, as we see as the Abramoff case unfolds). I’ll leave that to better informed people.

I just want to ask you to be thankful to everyone who had a part in bringing you food this year. The animals and plants, to the ranchers and farmers and hunters, everyone involved in food processing, canning, etc., everyone in involved with shipping food around the world and within your country, the grocery store and restaurant workers, your family and friends who prepared you meals, and anyone I may have forgotten. And, if you will, the gods and goddesses and other spirits that made it all possible, or just the awesome power of nature.

And everyone who has plenty might consider making a donation to America’s Second Harvest or the Mercy Corps .

Also, the Hunger Site a click a day sends food all over the world, at no cost to you.

As I prepare to leave town for the holiday, I wanted to share a few quick thoughts. I’ll spare you posting Burrough’s “Thanksgiving Prayer,” as I’m sure many others will do today or tomorrow. I’ll also spare you a rant on the brutal rape the Native Americans suffered (and continue to suffer, as we see as the Abramoff case unfolds). I’ll leave that to better informed people.

Wal-Mart: the High Cost of Low Prices

Rumor has it the managment at my local Wal-Mart was threatening to fire people who attended the local screening of this movie. I don’t know if there’s any truth to the rumor, but since Wyoming is an “at will” state, I’m not sure how much an employee fired for going to a movie could do about it. But if it’s true, it demonstrates just how afraid Wal-Mart really is of this movie. The screening was completely full. I RSVPed and showed up on time, but still couldn’t get a seat.

Buy for $7.99.

Hit Man: A Technical Manual for Independent Contractors

Thinking about the Turner Diaries reminded me of the banned booked Hit Man: A Technical Manual for Independent Contractors. So as long as I’m linking to morally questionable e-books, here it is:

Hit Man Online: A Technical Manual for Independent Contractors by Rex Feral.

The Turner Diaries e-book

This book has become sort of an obsession among my local circal of friends (not that they’re nazis, just curious). The rumor was: buy a copy, and you get added to a government watch list. The copies been around for months, but we’ve been seeing a lot more helicopters lately.

I haven’t read it yet, and I may never get around to it. But I have to confess a certain curiousity after reading this from Wikipedia:

At the time of his arrest, Timothy McVeigh, the man convicted for the Oklahoma City bombing, had a copy of The Turner Diaries in his possession. McVeigh’s bombing was similar to the event described in the book where the fictional terrorist group blows up FBI Headquarters.

The Order, an early 1980s white supremacist group involved in murder, robberies and counterfeiting, was named after the group in the book and motivated by the book’s scenarios for a race war. The group murdered Alan Berg, a controversial and outspoken Jewish talk show host, and engaged in other acts of violence in order to hasten the race war described in the book. The Order’s efforts later inspired another group, The New Order, which planned to commit similar crimes in an effort to start a race war that would lead to a violent revolution.

John William King was convicted for dragging James Byrd, an African-American, to his death in Jasper, Texas. As King shackled Byrd’s legs to the back of his truck he was reported to have said, “We’re going to start the Turner Diaries early.”

The suicide mission to bomb the Pentagon at the end of the book is eerily similar in some people’s minds to the suicide bombing of the Pentagon on September 11, 2001 by members of Muslim extremist group Al Qaeda. It has been suggested by some that the book only serves as a model of how a local grass-roots movement can overthrow a powerful and tyrannical central government, and that this has led to some groups that do not even agree with the white separatist/supremacist movement using it as a model or blueprint for revolution.
