Buddha Boy of Nepal Actually Just Really Stoned

So, the Buddha Boy of Nepal has returned after 9 months wandering the wilderness.

Earlier, the Inquirer mentioned this in their Human Oddity Issue at my urging, and in the post, I had alluded to how I had hoped Ram Bahadur Bamjon had reached Nirvana and was having lunch with Jesus and Ghandi -- and would return in a few years or so to impart great wisdom to our fractured world.

Turns out he was just doing what all of us did when we were fifteen: getting stoned, listening to Bob (Dylan if you were white, Marley if you weren‘t), and of course reading waaaaaay too much Herman Hesse.
