=v= That's not karma, that's a westernized misunderstanding
of the concept. Karma is something that accumulates with
negativity, Schadenfreude included.
=v= John Lennon's "Instant Karma" is actually closer to the
original concept, for those who ponder the lyrics. But who
ponders lyrics? "Instant karma's gonna get you" gives way
to "Epic Fail!"
