Darn tootin!

I am so tired of the Buddhist Absolutist approach! So I followed your hyperlink. Many thanks, because I discovered your Vampire Way, which is clearly so SUPERIOR to Buddhist Absolutism! Now I can stop all this pointless sitting and extend my lifespan, control other people, and all sorts of other cool Vampire things.
