    OK, quick. Give me the answer

    OK, yeah. That's what I was

    looking for. $20. discount coupon for you. I'll send one to MJ too. These are actual $20. off coupons, not the

    usual % discount, so you can use them on any size order (I think).

    Congrats,

    OK, here's a much tougher

    one.

    This scripture consists entirely of a conversation between a warrior

    and his teacher immediately before a huge battle.

    Wow! Correct. I didn't expect

    that to get answered so quickly. Are you of Indian decent? Or just familiar with Eastern religion?

    Anyway,

    check your PMs for a coupon code worth $30. on any order.

    I know, I was

    very impressed too.

    I'm starting to think, Bruce, that I might challenge you to try to come up with a question

    that no-one can answer. But it has to be a "general knowledge question". You cannot ask stuff like "What breed dog

    do I own" or something along those lines.

    That's great Bruce - thanks! I

    wasn't sure if it was right...and I finally grasp the jeopardy concept now, lol!

    I'm not of Indian descent, am

    Welsh in fact, but I was aware of the Mahabharata, and did a little bit of research! I enjoyed doing that, I have

    some exams coming up, so it was much more fun doing this than studying!!

    Thanks again!

    OK, you're on NG. Pretzel, you sit

    this one out. I think you might know this one too.

    World scriptures for $35.

    This plant is discussed

    in depth in one of the world's most ancient scriptures, and still worshipped as a God by many.

    No, though now I can think of at

    least one other plant that is sort of worshipped. Nothing like the one I'm thinking of in it's native land.

    Well, I know that the Peyote

    plant is also worshiped as a god in this country.

    I just did a Google to see if this

    could be dug up that way and found a lot of references to a plant called "Soma". This is a hallucinogenic plant

    that grows high in the himalayas and is apparently mentioned in the Rig Veda, and futhermore is referred to by some

    as the "God plant". I have some really hysterical stories about this stuff, but that is not the plant I am looking

    for. Soma is not really worshipped. Just some sadhus who live in the mountains do a lot of various drugs and say

    it will make you "see God".

    Yeah, peyote is also in that class;

    drugs that give visions. My plant is grown in India, with a history that goes back 5-6000 years I think. It is a

    healing herb, but for some reason it is believed to have some extraordinary spiritual properties.

    Peyote is the entity called

    Mescalito to some indians. Since they don't keep written records its hard to tell how long they've been using

    it.

    Yes! Tulsi it is. Worshipped as

    "Tulsi Devi" the godess all over India. Discussed at length in the Ayurveda scripture, and believed to have special

    powers to look after those who care for her.

    Sorry that wasn't a very good question because there were so

    many alternate answers with merit. But $35. coupon for thenoser. Where did you get the answer, BTW?

    remember seeing it listed on a menu as holy tulsi and took the opportunity to ask the cute waitress about it.

    apparently, it is a member of the basil family.

    great game. i have to remember to cruise the board more often on

    fridays.

    thanks bruce. and i was just mulling over what to order prior to checking the new posts.

    OK, no game.

    Oldies song

    lyrics for $20. Remember the correct response should be framed as a question. (eg "What is Tulsi?")

    We are

    advised by an old Neil Young song not to let these burning things get us down.

    Back to the original opening post

    question (sorry I didn't check this thread until recently), one translation also uses "charity."
    The opposite of love isn't hate.
    It's apathy

    Very generous of you. By all means,

    you can pose the "answer". Then just email your discount code by PM to the winner.

    Rbt,
    I've seen that

    translation too. Nowadays "charity" carries a rather strong meaning burden of "donation" of a material nature.

    Unfortunately for some "love" also has its negative conotations.
