    He looks like an old naturalist’s sketch from the 19th c come to life. Beautiful eyes.

    *BAM!*

    Asian fox as Asian eyes.

    I wonder how endangered it is? Chinese probably grind it up and rink it like everything else. I guess having itty bitty peeners makes you do some crazy shit?

    I saw one of these last summer near a place called Menshi is southwest Tibet. Very freaky looking; like his head is twice too big for his body…

    AKircher

    Interesting, Jazzy…thanks for that.

    Well it was still worth typing that for the one time a typo has worked in my favour.

    I meant drink. I typed rink.

    😀 Hilarity! 😀

    What was Tibet like, AKircher?

    Hopefully Chinese medicine believes eating ground up big headed fox will make your head enormous, Magnus.

    @ Brevity, Tibet is a beautiful, beautiful place with wonderful, kind, generous people whose culture is sadly being decimated by an ever-increasing invasion of ethnic Chinese.

    Brevity Truta

    Mm AKircher. You are lucky to have been there. Even onscreen, or listening to the monk’s chants, or reading about the sky burial, sand painting, and the Potala, Tibet’s always fascinated me in a way of it being good to know that there are mysterious, spiritual, isolated places left in the world. (Well, there were, dammnit). I know the old Tibetan system wasn’t ideal, but it’s a tragedy for humankind to lose something so finely evolved in a world that’s increasingly less spiritual, and diverse. And for what? It’s such a shame. I like the Dalai Lama’s approach not to… Read more »

    WHY SO SERIOUS?!

    AKircher

    @Brevity: Agreed about being lucky. The final death knell, of course, sounded in summer 2006 when the rail link from lowland China was completed all the way to Lhasa, effectively opening the floodgates to unrestricted Chinese colonization. We can only hope that the Beijing Olympics will refocus world attention on the plight of the Tibetan people and their culture…

    Because serious fox is serious business. Because without serious to ring true, frivolity rings hollow.

    Srsly :U

    Brevity Truta

    Ah, must have been replying as you replied, AKircher. That must have been some construction project, just because they can, not because the people will have better opportunities moving to the Roof of the World :/

    It’s certainly shaping up to be a very political Olympics.

    AKircher

    Yes, Brevity…let’s just hope the results are more effective than Moscow ’80 or Los Angeles ’84…

    Here’s the basics on that god-awful railway, fyi: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tibet_railway

    Brevity Truta

    Yes. I’m having a romantic daydream of a Tibetan leading the men’s Marathon, cruising along because he lives usually at such a high altitude, fuelled by his passion for spreading the message of his people’s plight, and stopping at the end, right before the line and just standing there, proud.

    I guess no Tibetans are in the Chinese team.

    That railway is surreal, ugly, and depressing.

    Speak of the devil I was just reading this:

    Also, brevity, tell me what you think of my reviews I don’t know any pro writers nemoar:

    “The Buddha’s job—and therefore that of his most prominent contemporary student—was not just to be clear-sighted and compassionate but also to show how compassionate and clear-sighted any one of us can be.” That’s why the Dalai Lama’s so inspiring, in essence. From the article. Skimmed the article, I’ll read it properly in a bit, for sure. *Smiles* Of course I will, Caio. I just had a peek, and see there’s a lot of work you’ve been doing – nice one! – it will be a pleasure to read, and yes I’ll tell you what I think of them. Overall, individually,… Read more »

    Sent you a pm on that site =)

    @ Brevity, re: #16, I like the way you think!
    @ Caio: I like the way you write; nice work!
