this is the real first page of a real book by a real Fox News host
my biggest question tho is WHAT PASSAGE OF THE BIBLE IS HE TALKING ABOUT I SRSLY WANT TO KNOW
A quick PSA, because working in a New Age store I realize a lot of people don’t know this. Keep in mind this is the simple version.
The fella on the left-hand side, that’s Gautama Buddha, the Buddha, the central figure in Buddhism. Note that he is not considered a god, but a teacher and spiritual leader, the first to attain Enlightenment in his era. Note also how thin he is. This is because the Buddha fasted a lot. He was born Siddhartha Gautama. Buddha is a title, and not actually his name.
The fella on the right-hand side is not Buddha. This is a common misconception in the West. That is Hotai (or Budai or Hotei depending on the language), a Buddhist monk from China and folkloric hero. Hotai is thought by many to be a Buddha, but he is not the Buddha. Unlike Buddha, Hotai actually is revered as a god in Chinese folklore, although not in Buddhist practice.
This post is based on things I’ve been taught by my Buddhist coworker but if I forgot or mixed up something important and you are Buddhist and you notice, please let me know.
This has been an informational post. Have a nice day.
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD EVERYONE READ THIS. READ IT. LEARN IT. PREACH IT.
I AM SO TIRED OF EVERYONE BELIEVING THIS MISCONCEPTION.

i wonder how fine evolved as a synonym for hot like i imagine some girl asking her boyfriend how she looked and him distractedly answering “fine” and her being like “…FINE? WELL FINE NO BLOWJOBS FOR YOU. FINE.” and him being like BABE NO it means like…. really hot…. yeah you look fine you look damn fine and her side-eyeing him and him hurriedly texting all his bros they gotta play along so they all started using fine that way too until eventually it just kinda caught on
this fucked me up
“It’s worth the risk, if I can be with you.”
This is literally a Tumblr classroom.
Okay I know the time frame totally doesn’t work but- Imagine Draco Malfoy getting all puffed up and arrogant and starting to say “I don’t think my father-” and Harry slyly interjecting “-the inventor of toaster strudel-” “-would be too happy to-” and then stopping in confusion when Harry, Hermione, and every other Muggleborn in earshot start practically crying with laughter.
IT ACTUALLY DOES WORK. Toaster Strudels were released in 1985!
