The Buddha asked a Shramana, "How long is the human life span?"
He replied, "A few days."
The Buddha said, "You have not yet understood the Way."

He asked another Shramana, "How long is the human life span?"
The reply was, "The space of a meal."
The Buddha said, "You have not yet understood the Way."

He asked another Shramana, "How long is the human life span?"
He replied, "The length of a single breath."
The Buddha said, "Excellent. You have understood the Way."

Every two years, more Americans die on the road than were killed in the entire Vietnam war.

A video like the one above, if it gave 10 seconds to each person killed in a year on American roads, would last about 100 hours.
