    Also, I picked the wrong morning to start a flamewar. Was not my intention at all. Perhaps I should have stated my argument with more compassion for those so rapt in the suffering of unfulfilled expectations.

      @patrickrhone “Perhaps I should have stated my argument with more compassion for those so rapt in the suffering of unfulfilled expectations.” This just made me laugh out loud. Thanks Patrick :)

        @patrickrhone I love you. :) also, if I were interested in learning more about Buddhism, where’s a good place/book to start?
        patrickrhone
          @hcmarks Buddhism Plain and Simple by Steve Hagan. Shoot me an email to patrick@patrickrhone.com with your address and I'll gift you a copy.

                    @hcmarks @patrickrhone I think there should be a “feats of strength” contest before gifting the book :P

                      @patrickrhone @hcmarks Believe it or not, Buddhism for Dummies is good. I read it after Buddhism Plain and Simple and it filled in a lot of the history and terminology. Finishing a Meditation class on Sunday morning. Found a teacher. Interesting stuff.

                        @patrickrhone Many have tried the car-to-software analogy before, all have failed.

                            @patrickrhone That has been one of the books I’ve been considering for my own education… Needless to say its in my hands right now.
