If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him.
I don’t know what that means.
I’ll ask Wikipedia/Google.
Dad: you know, people are using Google more and more to answer all kind of big life questions now..
like, “what should I wear today?”, “what should I do this weekend?”
At least Google probably gives better answers than a Magic 8 Ball.
But people have always used all kinds of devices to answer questions like that: Some people use the bible and go with whatever passage they randomly open to; some use the i-ching.
And now we have Google.
Dad: What color shall I wear today? Yahoo has answers.
WikiAnswers — what should you wear today?
Back to the koan.. Google indeed has the answers. This one’s pretty solid.
Another koan (apparently):
What is the sound of one hand clapping?
Koans are trick questions, asked by taciturn men in robes or sarongs, or taciturn men who’d rather be wearing robes or sarongs.
