A song from long ago

Great green gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts
Mutilated monkey meat
Hairy pickled piggy feet
French fried eyeballs floating in some kerosene


Great green gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts
Scab sandwich, puss on top
Vulture vomit, camel snot
Deep dish boogers soaking in a bowl of fat

Great green gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts
Parrot eyeballs dipped in glue
Petrified porpoise puss
Flaming ear wax bobbing in a bowl of barf

Great green gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts
Dessicated dinosaur dung
Percollated pelican poop
Tortoise turd balls with the little flies inside

Wouldn't you have to have the option of +karma and -karma.

And of course it does have a religious context also. Should I start looking for my saffron robes?

Thank You is pretty clear.

I liked karma better than "thanks". It had more specialness to it. Actually I always appreciate getting thanks or karma, although "rivets" are already given for posting. Maybe there should be more rivets for number of posts—6 for 1,000, 7 for 2,500, 8 for 5,000. After that you get a message to get a life or see a therapist. I agree the follow up message is dumb.

If someone wants to give negative karma, they should get 10 points of negative karma themselves.

The last time this was debated it was made clear that the Bhuddhist concept of kharma was different than the popular American concept of karma. It seemed to be that you can earn it, but no one can give it. I think some people were offended by the popular version. I don't know how many. I am not a big fan of political correctness since it soon becomes censorship, but don't have a clue how to resolve the feelings of the offended. The term "karma" is used all the time in the popular sense that it seems the door is wide open and has been for decades.

I love American chop suey, and for the most the traditions we hold dear in America especially at the holiday season were parts of ancient rituals and by gone religions.

I wish I could view past karma though. It was given and then taken away. The comments were neat to read once in awhile.

No bander on the battle of the sexes I see. Too much turkey dinner, I think. LOL

Negative karma had a 50:1 cost benefit ratio. It was taken as an extremely hostile comment and was rarely constructive. It's been gone ... a couple years? And good riddance. A politic and understated PM can accomplish so much more.

Rivets. I say, Rivets.
Pull rivets for a "that was good", and bucked rivets for a "WOW! THANKS!"

I don't really know what that means, but it's so durned fun to say.

I was viewing the "Thanks" left for me on my usercp last night. I know it has been awhile, but when did the site stop showing who left you the "Thanks"? I find it silly that I can't see who left me a nice note.

Religion is for people afraid of going to hell.
Spirituality is for those who have been there.

Out of over 25,000 people on this forum only a couple (or possibly fewer) have expressed a dislike of karma. Many many many more have expressed that they would like karma back. Should the rest of us suffer for the very small minority who objected?

Look - the (good) karma system that was here was warm and fuzzy. The thanks system is pretty shallow and trite. Why not just bring back the karma system and be done with it once and for all???
