The Self looks like the world. But this is just an illusion. The Self is everywhere. One. Still. Free. Perfect. The witness of all things, Awareness Without action, clinging or desire.
- Ashtavakra Gita 1:12
His attachments, his homes, can't be found. Through knowing he is unperplexed, has attained the plunge into deathlessness: he's what I call a brahmin. He has gone beyond attachment here for both merit & evil— sorrowless, dustless, & pure: he's what I call a brahmin.
- Dhammapada 411-412, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu

Our society is obsessed with sex – it’s too taboo to openly talk about, yet everyone has questions and curiosities. This manner of thinking leads to people coming to their own conclusions, and believing what they’re told without even the ability to ask someone who has the proper knowledge. There exist so many myths and misconceptions about every facet of human sexuality, it would be impossible to compile them all in one place. So let’s start with ten commonly believed links to the size of a man’s genitalia.
This is probably one of the most common methods people try to use to judge the measure of a man. Foot fetishism may play a role in the persistence of this belief, or it may just be the fact that shoe size is one of the most obvious personal measurements everyone knows offhand. Women (and men) come up with convoluted equations in an attempt to find a link between the size of a guy’s feet and the length of his penis. You can divide by 3, in half, or take away as many inches as you like, but in the end you’re no closer to solving the mystery. It’s only a myth, so don’t hang around Foot Locker looking for a pick-up.
On a wing and a prayer: The extraordinary hanging monasteries that cling to the sides of cliffs
When you're trying to connect with your god, it helps to find some peace and quiet, if you can.
But that was, indeed, no such problem for the architects of these impossibly built monasteries.
Constructed at dizzying heights on the sides of mountains, they ensured only the most devoted - and vertigo-free - followers would join them for prayer.
Gripping: This gravity-defying hanging monastery clings to the side of Mt Huashan in China and is only accessible via steep and dangerous paths
