    For any of us in glee that want to post totally non sequitiare un seriousness bull shit and pull ourselves off the regular forums so as not to be held accountable for any unseriousness I now position this thread. Nothing will be held against you to poke fun at life here. This is for people who find relief from the comedy of this whole fucking arena called Scientology. There are no rules. Anyone coming here does so with the understanding that this is all for comedy. If you get too serious, just stop clicking on the threads.

    Crazy
    (seal) 1990

    In a church,by the face,
    He talks about the people going under.

    Only child know...

    A man decides after seventy years,
    That what he goes there for, is to unlock the door.
    While those around him criticize and sleep...
    And through a fractal on a breaking wall,
    I see you my friend, and touch your face again.
    Miracles will happen as we trip.

    But we're never gonna survive, unless...
    We get a little crazy
    No we're never gonna survive, unless...
    We are a little...

    Crazy...crazy...crazy...

    ...crazy yellow people walking through my head.
    One of them's got a gun, to shoot the other one.
    And yet together they were friends at school
    Ohh, get it, get it, get it, get it no no!

    If all were there when we first took the pill,
    Then maybe, then maybe, then maybe, then maybe...
    Miracles will happen as we speak.

    But we're never gonna survive unless...
    We get a little crazy.
    No we're never gonna survive unless...
    We are a little...
    Crazy...
    No no, never survive, unless we get a little... bit...

    Oh, a little bit...
    Oh, a little bit...

    Oh...
    Oh...

    Amanda decides to go along after seventeen years...

    Oh darlin...
    In a sky full of people, only some want to fly,
    Isn't that crazy?
    In a world full of people, only some want to fly,
    Isn't that crazy?
    Crazy...
    In a heaven of people there's only some want to fly,
    Ain't that crazy?
    Oh babe... oh darlin...
    In a world full of people there's only some want to fly,
    Isn't that crazy?
    Isn't that crazy... isn't that crazy... isn't that crazy...

    Ohh...
    But we're never gonna survive unless, we get a little crazy.. crazy..
    No we're never gonna to survive unless we are a little... crazy..
    But we're never gonna survive unless, we get a little crazy.. crazy..
    No we're never gonna to survive unless, we are a little.. crazy..
    No no, never survive unless, we get a little bit...

    And then you see things
    The size
    Of which you've never known before

    They'll break it

    Someday...

    Only child know....

    Them things
    The size
    Of which you've never known before

    Someday...
    Someway...
    Someday...
    Someway...
    Someday...
    Someway...
    Someday...

    Hey PG,

    We've been around for a long time.

    There is a rocket man inside of me too, that needs to laugh.

    Let's just pull me off the forums of regular people and see if we can laugh about it all.

    Because, this whole thing was designed to make people laugh.

    And I think I am with the original idea.

    But I suspect my comedy relief is actually violting some so I am off here on the side in a corner now.

    I found this corner on my own thanks to Emma's real estate transactions on the net.

    And Emma has been very generous and I do not think she will blast me for setting up this little squeeze of a place to laugh.

    I simply cannot take any of this seriously anymore.

    So.....that is trully the whole scene.

    This thread is only for fucking silliness.

    I'd say you are off to a good start.

    Some people make things shappen.

    Some people wonder what happened.

    You know, it's the people who dare to wonder what happened that really make a difference in this world.

    Be this only #5...
    I've been lurking a long time... here and there...

    The subject can be a little "fascinating", "obsessive", time consuming, combative... etc...

    Even for those never involved with the CofS.

    I agree. It's time for some sillyness :)

    "I'm picking up a part of Wieber's post from an OCMB thread where they're talking about the PTS/SP course.

    "Wieber apparently did the GAT version of the course.

    The pages are a heavy card stock and may be laminated. Before you are allowed to touch one of those books you have to study and star rate a set of instructions on how to handle them. When you get the book it comes in a clean towel and as much as you are able you are not to let the book touch a table top or anything like that.

    Is it just me, or is this completely and utterly insane?

    Is this true of all the GAT courses, or just the PTS/SP Course?

    Does anyone have an explanation for this"?



    Sure. I have an explanation. they are supposed to worship books.

    I mean, that is only natural to worship the books.

    Someone had to plant a seed, or a seed had to fall without help.

    Then a tree had to grow.

    This might have taken ten to twenty years.

    Then some suppressive tree cutter came and chopped the tree down.

    So, now, just get this.

    Everytime you pick up a book realize it had been suppressed and is probably still in the middle of a hot little engram.

    The tree had to be hauled to a paper factory and cut into thin strips.

    Then ink and all sorts of madness had to happen to put that book out for people to read.

    Do people have any idea the number of people involved to publish and produce a book?

    So, it gets down to not what is the knowledge in the book.

    The book itself because of the stamp and volume of contribution becomes a holy matter.

    It gets dressed up in a book cover and pimped out on book shelves.

    And that is why in the church, they handle the books with towels.

    I think that's only respectful.

    Animals probably shit on the roots of that tree.

    Animals that ate other animals to make that shit.

    Some being gave their life for those books in all reality.

    In all reality, when you lift a book, chances are it is full of shit and dead body.

    I see perfectly well why those books should be handled with towels.

    Maybe they will start worshipping towels as well.
    There is a new post "Holy Towels In Charge", to make sure that useful purpose of towels in protecting KSW point 1 will never get lost.

    But seriously, if live leans to heavy on you, one could buy shoes that are too small. You won't think about anything else than the pain in your feet.

    And at the end of the day, when you put your shoes off, you will feel so enlightened.

    What about an online GAT?

    might make it a little easier to disseminate.
    Easier to update,
    Less able to damage by sliding across a table.
    Does not requiring "dusting". Allowing an auditor, C/S to spend more time being productive in doing what they should be doing.

    And it removes the worship-like-ness of the book.
    It's the data that should be important. Not they book-mest-ness.

    You're the little Newbie who could!

    Keep chugging and plugging and huffing and puffing on the Hamster wheel. You'll make it little Newbie.

    All the way!

    Yes, there should be holy towels. Once a towel has touched a ring binder it is infused with *Power!*

    The Ethics Officer shall use them to snap the hindmost.

    Now that's the seed of a very good idea to get Courseroom stats up - "Devil take the hindmost". The person with the lowest student points at Thursday 2pm gets declared. :D

    Sorting out the "DO SOMETHING" Myth

    I'm getting awfully annoyed these days at people being nagged to DO SOMETHING or GET SOMETHING DONE. Some of you gals out there in a marriage probably know just what I'm talking about.

    Here's this quote that is quite innocent upon first glance:

    "There are people who make things happen,
    There are people who watch things happen,
    And there are people who wonder what happened.
    To be successful, you need to be a person
    who makes things happen."

    James Lovell
    Astonaut

    This kind of inval onto inquiring minds is being pushed around in the public school systems.

    Do you know how easy it is to make something happen?

    It is often difficult to watch what happened. That takes some confront. People have to digest these matters.

    Only the people who stepped back and took the time to wonder what happened can enlighten the rest of us.

    So, if you are sitting around watching, pat yourself on the back for being up to interest, and your courage.

    If you are still sitting around wondering what happened, thank you very much.

    When you figure out some answers please share with the rest of us.

    And NEVER invalid your wonder and inquiring mind.

    When you wonder, you question, you are making something happen.

    Wonder is a doingness.

    I can't believe they let this Astronaut go into space with his type of confusions.

    If Hubbard hadn't wondered what happened, I still wouldn't know how I got here.

    And beware of opinion leaders warning you against wonder.
