Default To tendstoinfinity: thanks

for your attention, but I see no reason to change any title. It was intended as a very mildly ironic description of this old man, sitting outside his house, doing nothing but fingering his rosary, wearing a slightly weird smile. I am sure he wasn't doing any military service, and as a devout Buddhist he was most likely antimaterialistic, possibly purposeless. Anyway, the combination of the words Tibetan+slacker seemed to me absurd enough not to be taken too seriously.
Have a nice day,
Gert
