has anyone in the world got it yet?

this is supposed to help:

A Buddist monk would come down from his cave in the hill every day to preach the people in the village, people would gather around him and, he would always put one finger in the air while he was talking. A mischievous child would mock him by copying him behind his back, this made the crowd laugh and this made the monk's teaching difficult.
One the day the monk came down from the hill, and the crowd gathered, when the people stopped moving the monk raised his finger and began to form his first word, suddenly he spun round and grabbed the child's hand and cut of his finger. At this point the child became enlightened.

this didn't help me really, it was just funny

Ah, gratuitous violence and child abuse.

The great sources of humour and entertainment.
