Joshu, a Chinese Zen master, asked a cow:
"Do you have Buddha-nature or not?"
The cow answered: "Moo."

May be... while other people spend money arranging the garden in order to have a super big €uro symbol, there are some other that have no resources to "seal" disasters... is the world! :(

I found another secret place. Well, it´s at a main street, and it looks like a miniature version of the castle of evil, and to make sure it says in big letters above the door what it is - so it´s not totally secret, I guess.

In Google maps search for: 498 Santa Fe Ave, Alamosa, CO

then see the Street view of this. :)

And why do you like it? Personally, I don't like it at all: very bad remembrances...

They're not all that secretive about their locations, just about what happens inside. You can find the location of their headquarters in Langley on Wikipedia.

Yep, seen Langley too, but it´s only visible as a satellite view. This, however, is easy enough - it´s about as big as a small town. :wink:

It was quite suspicious that my browser crashed just as it was loading the nearest street view I could get...
