The Krishna stuff is from a Hindu religious website, he's copying & pasting from. He left a link but I didn't check it.

He copied the fake Telsla quote from an advertisement for Tesla pink Mouse-mats.
:D

I can't see gorgeous' posts without clicking on them, and I don't wanna do that if my answers aren't in there.

Don't bother. It's not even defined as a quote. It's just a sales pitch. In court it would be called "a mere puff" or hyperbole.

No, I don't need a car, just a beer.

Zeuzzz died. I don'r really know the exact circumstances but he died in his sleep. I'm suspicious he was smoking DMT as he said he did and blocked the oxygen take up in his brain. I hate to say it....but it was probably a good thing he died rather than survived with severe damage.

That's so tragic. He really did believe the idea he was promoting and it seems that in the end that's what took his life. It's in times like these that we really can see the answer to the age-old question of "what's the harm?". RIP, zeuzzz. We rarely saw eye to eye, but I respected your enthusiasm and perseverance, even if they were ultimately misplaced.
