I think I'd be happy being a monk if it weren't for the gender issues. Monks have a way better deal than nuns do. And I'm not a sports fan, so I wouldn't have to worry about that aspect of it.

I remember a tv programme some years ago about the 1994 world cup final. The makers set up cameras in loads of places around the world, watching from the screen back at the people in the room, at the beach, or, in the monastery.

The monks in the monastery were rather constrained. They showed their appreciation or excitement (wasn't sure which) by rubbing their hands together.

We need a monk to comment here, but I don't know any! Vasta, I had a good chuckle from it and no, I don't mind - think it's great you liked the link.
