It's not a joke, people

When I saw that eSutra had linked to a YouTube video on Yogic Flying, I was sure that it was a joke. You know, a typical YouTube spoof. Since eSutra tends to be pretty serious, I thought to myself that perhaps someone had simply missed the sarcasm, it being hard to tell the difference at times in this mainly visual media.

But no. Some minor web sleuthing on my part revealed that at the Maharishi University of Management way out there in the middle of America (Fairfield, Missouri, to be exact), these crazy kids in business suits are practicing Transcendental Meditation, and if they are really really spiritually inclined (and with hips that tell no gruesome tales of a life lacking in floor-sitting), then they may also be folding their legs into lotus and jumping up and down and all around using their butt cheeks (and their spirituality) as springs.

I repeat, this is not a joke.
