    You don't even know what karma is.

    Karma, as understood by Hindus, Buddhists, Jains and Sikhs, is *ritualistic* action exercised for the sake of gaining enlightenment. It includes benevolent works, religious ritual, meditation, etc.

    "Karma" as it has come to be understood by people in the West, is an erroneous interpretation of the Vedic/Dharmic doctrine. Karma isn't some kind of universal, metaphysical police force that doles out punishment and reward based on what one has done.

    You'll know if it's bad Karma when right after you kill an insect/arachnid, etc, a ceiling tile falls on your head (or any other sort of reparation). Until that happens, I don't think you need to worry about it.

    DON"T KILL ME, unless you want the flees of a thousand camels to infest your arm pits.

    The Jains think so. I don't, because karma is imaginary.
