How you doin', Dolly Llama
Was in the midst of a geek quorum at work today, and we got onto the topic of the infamous Buddhist Monk who set himself on fire to protest the Vietnam war (and subsequently end up on a "Rage Against the Machine" album cover).
The youngest, single guy of the group wondered, "How does someone manage to do that? To set themselves on fire and sit there not moving?"
So we kinda gang opined about monks of various religions being able to teach themselves to detach from pain and even release endorphins at will.
And then someone said, "Yeah, they can even teach themselves to talk to girls."
