I have 40,000 ounces of gold I'll sell them for $110/ounce.

There's a couple of catches, of course:

They have to dig it up, and the minimum purchase is 20,000 ounces.

Does that mean he doesn't need those paper ass gaskets?

Last One Left, Bal Thackeray might be a fundamentalist ass, but it is better than being a pedophile like Sai Baba

my throne is porcelain and that suits me just fine.

Is that pic a pic of Sai Baba or Stephen Hawking?

Throne of gold? Like the Pope? Yes, asinine indeed. Do as we say, not as we do.
 
2006-08-24 12:11:15 AM
13 troy ounces to the pound x 550 = 7150 ounces x $440 per ounce = $3,146,000 for a nice throne to sit on.

No ass gaskets included.

That's the other guy. This one has been dead for decades, and was known for bringing Muslims and Hindus together.

Well, Sai Baba is Sai Baba, and his movements of devotees have been and will be around longer than most Hindu politicians. And its not like anyone in New Delhi is hacking down the Taj Mahal to feed the poor either.

All this proves is that Thackeray is not a fan of Sai Baba. Big surprise there.

I got a golden pope for my birthday. i don't really know what to do with it, so it just sits in a box in my closet.

Oh my goodness, I did not realize that it was Sai Baba of Shirdi. I thought it was the one that with the afro that claims to be the reincarnate Sai Baba.

Yeah. NOT the afro hair dude.

Sathya Sai Baba. I think he has a golden chair though.

As devotees are donating money specifically for this cause, I have no idea what Thackeray's (or submitter's) problem is.

Wait-wait-wait. Lemme be the first one to say it:

You fail at the interpretation of sarcasm.

Golden Pope. Hah. Dumbass.
 
2006-08-24 12:53:17 AM
Mmm...k.

Anyone else find it odd that a throne made of SOLID GOLD would only weigh 550 lbs?

/not a jeweler
//i'nt gold a wee bit heavier?

Teechur: Anyone else find it odd that a throne made of SOLID GOLD would only weigh 550 lbs?

Did you know that gold is so dense that every pound of it weighs over 12 pounds???
 
2006-08-24 01:05:04 AM
I'm pretty sure that Teechur thinks 550 lbs is a little on the light side for a "solid gold" throne.

Oznog:Did you know that gold is so dense that every pound of it weighs over 12 pounds???


How does a pound weigh more than a pound...without changing gravity?
 
2006-08-24 01:17:40 AM
ahahahahaha

If you farkers knew anything about Sai Baba you would also know that he can make Gold appear out of no where, so it's not going to cost much to make!

And here's what the dude looks like!

sheeeeeeeeeeeesh

For those who have studied Sai Baba in depth and witnessed His materializations first hand, there can be no doubt that the vast majority of them are bona fide miracles. I and many of my friends have seen numerous unquestionably-genuine miracles up close: necklaces and watches literally popping out of the air beneath Baba's hand, right before our eyes. And there are thousands of believable stories. My fiancé's parents know an American woman for whom Baba once materialized a gold bangle during an interview. When she tried to put it on it was too small, and wouldn't fit over her hand, so Baba took it back, held it up for all to see, and blew on it - and the bangle instantly expanded to a much larger size, which easily fit over her hand! But then she said, "Swami, now it's too big - it'll fall off!" So He bent over and blew on it again - and the bangle instantly shrank into a perfect fit around her wrist.

Thanks RoadRage...apparently my point was lost on Oznog.

Sigh, we've already covered this. The Sai Baba in question is the one who resided in Shirdi decades ago.
 
2006-08-24 02:11:54 AM
A temple that can actually build things. What will they think of next?
 
2006-08-24 02:23:58 AM

crap! now im dissapointed. i was just about to ask you to pass the shiat you were smoking :-)
 
2006-08-24 02:42:45 AM
Thackeray just hates Sai Baba because its peaceful and has a history of bringing Muslims and Hindus together. There's no place for pussy Hinduism according to him and his RSS allies. Balabhai has crores from corruption, so him biatching about this is moot.

If he's so great, why can't he get it right the first time, eh?

No, they're slowly corroding it away with acidic smog instead.

You see, that is a perfect example of Bush Deraignment Syndrome. OK so you hate Bush and don't like the war.

SO THE phark WHAT?
It has nothing to do with this thread.
Your hatred and anger will eat you up inside, let it go man.

I bet Bhagwan OSHO had even more wealth than the value of the golden throne. On last count, he had among other things 99 rolls royces.

I loved reading his jokes. They were rib tickling at the same time had lots of wisdom.

... And he was a proponent of free sex. ;-)

Here is a hilarious OSHO joke.

A Pope -- maybe this Polack Pope -- was going for a morning walk with a rabbi. The rabbi stumbled on a stone, hurt his foot, and said, "shiat!"
The Pope said, "This is not right, because God is everywhere and he must have heard you."
They walked a little further and again the rabbi stumbled and again he said, "shiat!"
The Pope said, "Enough is enough! God will punish you."
And the third time it happened suddenly there was great thunder in the clouds, lightning struck the Pope dead, and then somebody in the clouds shouted, "shiat! I missed!"
 
2006-08-24 09:25:21 AM
Oh boy, I am addicted to OSHO jokes :) Here is another one.

Danny discovered that his wife was cheating with another guy, so he went to the guy's wife and told her about it.
"I know what we will do!" she said. "Let us take revenge on them." So they went to a motel and had revenge on them.
She said, "Let us have more revenge."
So they kept having revenge and more revenge. Finally Danny said, "That's enough revenge. I don't have any more hard feelings."

4.8 million dolars in gold, huh? Anyone feel like going on a trip?
