Was it as dare? Or some sort of Situationist art stunt?

It also reminded me of a South Park episode!

I have to hand it to the Hells Angels club members for not "going off the deep end" with the disturbed young man.
kind regards

Sorry, guys, I don't watch "southpark", so I don't know why this is reminding you of it...but I know this:

He first showed his naked butt to the Hell's angel, usually a gesture of contempt and mockery. He then hurled the puppy at them, which remained unharmed. Nothing like the puppy throw in Iraq.

What is interesting to know is that the 2 motorcycles clubs in Germany "Hell's angels" and "Bandidos" made an unexpected peace with each other in May, after rumors spread, they would both get forbidden, if their hostilities continued.

Some think their peace is just lip service, but the clubs both signal they are serious about it.

I've a feeling the student wanted to demonstrate his disbelief in their peace agreement, after he wasn't numbed by medication anymore.

Perhaps he had encounters with them before, but this is all speculation, so let's not.

In any case, he is getting help now.

Metta,

Anna

It remains vague what exactly are you referring to with :quote: here :quote: , Dukkhanirodha,- to Southpark, the puppy, depression, or what...? :alien:

He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'

South Park is one of the greatest things on television. It's always funny and it's frequently brilliant social commentary.

Thanks for the link, Modus, I wasn't aware of it!

Just a warning, Anna... the South Park show is pretty crude. :tongue: I used to enjoy it when I was younger, (I thought it was hilarious) but now not anymore really. I don't know if it was my sense of humor that changed or not... but the quality seems much cruder now than it was in the beginning.

I noticed my preferences changed as well. I often look at things with my Buddhist glasses on. 8-)

Well, I thought Southpark was funny for about an hour and a half. LOL Then it got old. Then I met the creators at a convention and they were the worst sort of people, and I my dislike for the series became cemented. But, as everyone knows, I am a fop and easily offended by crudeness. I become overcome by the vapors.

Of course there are people who still watch the Simpson and find it fresh. :P So who am I to speculate? Just an effete old geezer.
