No such thing; we use Monks inclusively. You could say 'meditated' about other Monks of the gender, lack thereof, or genders you find worth said 'meditation'.

    Exactly. Their lack of existence makes them so unattainable that Monks (of the gentlemanly persuasion) are driven wild, with no choice but to seek solace in solitary contemplation.

    Just a something something...

      Perhaps the term should be Perlnones then? :P

      If that's what I MEANT, that's what I would have SAID...

        Yes, Nones are probably when most monks are likely to be engaged in such meditations. :-)

    Don't think about invisible pink elephants.
        Just finished a binge on Charles Stross novels, I'm still a bit bent ;)

[Corion]: holli: Ooof :)
[hippo]: Cut should beless than 20% after tax, though. :-)
[Corion]: hippo: Yeah, but at least two years ago, it still was close enough to 20% cut
[Corion]: But I have a very positive experience with a four day workweek and a three day weekend. I can't easily go back though to full money.
[Corion]: That is easy without having to pay for a house, a wife or children though. If I had any of these, or any two of these, the decision wouldn't be that easy.
[ambrus]: wait. I understand no wife and children, but how do you not have to pay for a house?
[hippo]: I had a low-paid job about 20 years ago and seriously considered going down to a 3-day week. Would have worked 60% of the time for about 80% of the cash.
[Corion]: ambrus: Well, I pay rent, but don't own a house with variable/ unforeseeable costs
