    Room For All

    I used to eat it every morning for breakfast and never got tired of it. Nowadays, I eat cereal for breakfast but I use peanut butter as a dip for crackers for snacking.

    Room For All

    You and me both, though I'm picky. I want the all-natural kind that only has ground peanuts, no additives.

    Raptors Rapture

    And have ever since the days of "bread and circuses". It's not new and it's not unique to our society. The perspective of history is that this is "same old same old".

    Raptors Rapture

    Like it or not, pro sports is valued pretty highly in North America. I'm with you up to a point, but it doesn't shock or surprise me that the Raptors win got the attention it did. Just think what it will be like if the Leafs ever win a Cup again:rolleyes:.

    We'll take it if you don't want it. Still fairly cool here as the solstice looms. In some ways, as someone who's heat averse, I don't mind but it feels a bit weird. We still haven't switched over to AC yet this year and I'm sure that in past summers we've had it on at least once by now.

    Raptors Rapture

    Never, I don't think. Our demonstrations tend to be fairly small scale. And, I think, because it's rare that the stakes here are ever as high as they are with Hong Kong and its rather precarious relationship with Beijing. And I wasn't suggesting that the Raptors rally was as important, just...

    The fate of the bucket of molasses. Not pretty.

    Raptors Rapture

    Which is, just for comparison, about the same number out for the demonstration in Hong Kong, a much bigger city, on the weekend. IOW, wow!

    Mindful meditation may be keeping humanity stuck...

    So I am thinking this may be my final post on the matter. The problem with Western society is people being inward-looking and self-centred. Mindfulness didn't cause that, though Western practice of mindfulness has certainly been affected by it (I'll give you that much). As I suggested upthread...

    Raptors Rapture

    You can't blame the Raptors or basketball for what happened. My guess, based on past history, is gang activity but we'll see what the Toronto cops have to say as the investigation unfolds.

    Iran

    From a geek standpoint,. it's interesting that it's those two. Wonder what happened to Google. Though they are number three after those two so perhaps they bid and just naturally fell off. I would go MS if I was the Pentagon. I am honestly not sure about Amazon's long-term prospects or ability...

    Mindful meditation may be keeping humanity stuck...

    And do we have any actual evidence of this? Because my anecdotal experience is not this. It assumes everyone doing it is the same and learning the same way and that just is not reality. And, honestly, is it doing any more harm than corporate Christianity which likely makes far more money and has...
