The idea that a Buddhist is some Vietnamese guy with saffron robes and a shaved head chanting "Ommm" all day is not quite in touch with reality. I am not directing this at you personally but at your posts blasé answer: I have found in my conversations that the majority of people who voice any opinion about Buddhism have gleaned their learning from pop culture and suffer greatly from the root cause of samsara: ignorance.

Actually, I've spent considerable time in northern Thailand, and the image of a "Guy with saffron robes and a shaved head chanting 'Ommm' all day" is surprisingly accurate.
