  Chang-ch'o, an educated man, once asked the Chinese Ch'an master Chih-t'sang:
-Is there paradise or hell?
Chih-t'sang replied:
-No.
Chang-ch'o protested:
-That is not correct. When I was studying under the priest... continue...

A picture is worth a thousand words, but the Buddha tells us that a thousand words are not worth a shit stick. Plus it takes many moments to down your CGG. Is a picture a better delusion than a word? MU

vertical line I wonder if that sounds more profound in an eastern lanuguage.


(I remember a thing from M*A*S*H where Father Mulcahy would hear something offensive he would just translate it into latin "beacause everything sound noble in latin".)

vertical line I don't use a "shit-stick", do you? Dogen used one, meant a lot to him - better a clean shit-stick than dirty-bum. Plus, I think in pictures and sounds but not numbers, does that count?

"MU"

Piousness and the path of love
are two different roads.
Love is the fire that burns both belief
and non-belief.
Those who practice Love have neither
religion nor caste.

Shaikh Abu Saeed Abil Kheir

A Google search didn’t turn up anything useful for the CGG reference either. It doesn’t by any chance mean Canadian Grenadier Guards does it? Please let me know if id does, because then I’ll have to look up what Grenadier mean. Oh wait, I notice it spells correctly in my word processor… it means a soldier armed with grenades. They sure don’t fool around it Canada, apparently!

  • 1792: the Old Farmer's Almanac begins publication; there are several publications by the same name, as well as the Farmer's Almanac, which began publication in 1960. Pages from these publications were often ripped out and used as toilet paper, and later editions have holes punched in them so they could be hung from a hook in outhouses.
  • 1857: Joseph Gayetty sells first factory-made toilet paper (Gayetty's Medicated Paper) in the USA. These were loose, flat, sheets of paper, pre-moistened and medicated with aloe; each sheet has Gayetty's name printed on it.
  • 1877: The Albany Perforated Wrapping Paper Company of Albany, New York sells Perforated toilet paper ('The Standard'). It is sold 'by all the leading druggists' and is not medicated. It is marketed as being free of 'all deleterious substances' which includes printed materials and chemicals 'incident to the ordinary process of manufacture (which is) a cause of hemorrhoids.' In addition, medicated toilet paper which is 'heavily charged with ointment' was offered for 'sufferers of hemorrhoids.'
  • 1879: Scott Paper Company sells the first toilet paper on a roll, although initially they do not print their company name on the packaging. Toilet paper was sold under the name of various industrial customers, including the Waldorf Hotel, which led to the popular Waldorf brand of toilet paper.
  • late 19th century: rolls of perforated toilet paper available for the first time, replaces razor or knife on dispensers
  • 1890s: Sears catalogue first becomes available, commonly used in rural America (initial catalogs were only of watches and jewelry, but by 1895, the catalog was 532 pages in size).
  • 1900: plumbing improvements of the Victorian era have led to wide use of flushing toilet and (in Europe) the bidet
  • 1930s: Sears starts publishing its catalogue on less absorbent glossy paper
  • 1935: Northern Tissue advertises its toilet paper as "splinter-free"
  • 1942: first two-ply toilet paper from St. Andrew's Paper Mill in England; toilet paper becomes softer and more pliable. For most of the rest of the twentieth century, both 'hard' and 'soft' paper was common. Hard was cheaper, and was shiny on one side. Sometimes it had messages like 'GOVERNMENT PROPERTY', 'IZAL MEDICATED' or 'NOW WASH YOUR HANDS PLEASE' written on each sheet near the perforation. Eventually soft paper won out as the price differential between the two papers vanished. Hard paper is seldom seen these days in UK, but is still available.
  • 1943: novelty toilet paper printed with images of Hitler
  • 1973 December 19: comedian Johnny Carson causes a three week toilet paper shortage in the USA after a joke scares consumers into stockpiling supplies
  • 1980: the paperless toilet invented in Japan (combination toilet, bidet and drying element, see Japanese toilet)
  • 1990s: papers containing ingredients like aloe begin to be heavily marketed in the USA
  • 2000s: toilet

    That is okay if you don't want to hear what you don't want to hear. But, when someone speaks the truth, will you always twist thing around to sweeten them for your own taste? Or will you listen to the truth and transform your life??
