Where will they honeymoon I wonder ....

There's a Brad Pitt movie. From before he was a huge star .It's based on a true story ,about a man who goes to Tibet ,and ends up living with the monks ,and I think he builds them a school,or library ,and there's this scene of them excavating and digging,to build the foundation ,and the monks ffrrreeakkk out,not to kill any earth worms during the digging,as they too,are sentient beings .
They removed all the worms,alive,by hand .

I forget the name of the movie,but it certainly shows us how Tibet is terrorized,and how these people live,and truely believe ,all sentient beings,are equal .

Miss me?

It's called Seven Years in Tibet and I believe they were digging a well when they found the worms.
Life becomes quite complicated when one believes every single object around you have a sentient soul, one would have to hover around and never eat anything to avoid hurting anything.

Yea took the words out of my mouth!!!  But that would never happen here cause they are hermaphrodites and legally could not be married in this country.

What could possibly go wrong?

If they ever split up.... there'll be hundreds of them.  Like when you half them with a spade.  Wriggling all over the place but this time with a bitter, sad and cynical wriggle instead of the normal wtf wriggle. (only saying)

I was accused of being slightly racist for saying, at work, that the Far East is an insane land.  I stand by it.  They are nuts.

Apparently, the overwhelming majority of earthworms are "living in sin"...not to mention all of the other animal life here on Earth.

what a bunch of crap. There must be other ways to bring attention to their cause. Now it is just a butt of jokes.
