22. Left handed. Cancer researcher. 'Artist.' Pervert. Glutton. Omnisexual. Sylph of Space. INTP. Wicked gay. I love life and sometimes it loves me too. I obsess over everything <3 Especially Invader Zim and Homestuck. I play a lot of video games, I suck a lot of dick, and I eat a lot of good food. Mmmm life.

BTW this blog isn't super safe for work. Some boobs and buttz here and there.
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.
Remember that one time bro attempted to whip a baby off the top of a 20+story high building but the baby was like “nah”
Note the ! above his head.
He didn’t expect Dave to do that.
It was literally, “This is probably gonna kill the kid but hey who knows.” *chucks baby*

Yes! This matchup was always just so perfect to you. Why can’t anyone else see it? WHY CAN’T THEY SEE??? It’s hard being a shipper. It’s hard, and no one understands.
i hate these cookies
Go fuck yourself, you piece of shit. You’re the reason society is crumbling. In 20 years, New York is going to be a pile of ash and dust because people like you exist. This is why I fucking hate tubmlr.
