The monastery welcomes those with difficult mental conditions including our clearly troubled brother finddata/perlanswers/test1234/gpssana/chellasama/gopikavi. We hope he makes a full and swift recovery and learns the value of an SSCCE.

Formatting

Think back to when you were 6 or 7 and you may have received a set of coloured pens/pencils/crayons/chalks as a gift. On first opening you try all of them as is natural.
