    That was just a Hindu twist... :duh:

    Yeah, I know.

    Speaking of Indian twists, I just obtained a cook book for Nepal cooking.

    For a while when I was working for Save The Children Foundation, I sponsored a fellow from Nepal to come stay in the U.S. for a while. In exchange he used to cook for me the most divine food ever. He also introduced me to Indian Pickles.

    Anyway, I just can't wait to get in the kitchen with my new cook book and start up some of these divine recipies.

    Your wife must keep you very happy from the kitchen.

    Oh, yes! I am very happy.

    By the way, we came back from Galapagos yesterday. I am trying to get over my sunburn and aching muscles from all that hiking and horse riding.

    I and the world are gratefull for the brightness you bring to us.

    Wow! Dunno how I do that.

    I do not acknowledge that you need a defence.

    You who have given so much grace and theta comm to
    the world.

    I am honoured that you say such about me.

    Fire and broth or a hair comb,
    I collected the comforts well fair.
    Careful only to have them
    keeping the cupboards bare.

    I walked to the rivers
    for bathing.
    Until I saw you appear.
    If there is a folly to comfort,
    now I simply don't care.

    the scientological onion thread

    Excerpt from Madman or Massiah:

    "Here lie the secrets of L. Ron Hubbard: his bad health, bad habits, undistinguished military service, flunked physics and mathematics classes".

    No secret now is it?

    Somehow everything is still the same in my mind though.

    Maybe because his health habits etc etc especially flunked classes never came up in my auditing?

    I've been thinking about this, why everything else is the same for me although Hubbard had a life.

    Funny, I never really thought his personal life had anything to do with my life.

    I still had my life in Scientology and he wasn't even in it.

    My life happened like it did all the same.

    Hubbard's habit's didn't discredit my life.

    But somehow I think people think it was supposed to.

    My auditing happened even though Hubbard flunked mathematics.

    Maybe later up the line when he figured out where symbols was it didn't even matter to him.

    Anyway, Hubbard was never a symbol to me.

    I surpassed the school in mathematics, but I didn't explore phsycometry.

    Which by the Claude Bristol was doing in the 1940's.

    I guess the book is all about how one should view the symbol.

    It's funny that if Hubbard did flunk mathematics, he turned into a symbol.

    I'm not much interested in participating in your Glee thread, but since you took one line from an essay, here's the context.

    Stating that Hubbard had "flunked physics," etc., is an accurate observation, an observation made in one sentence.

    And, by the way, as you may recall, he did represent himself as a "nuclear physicist."

    Oh, he's got crimes.

    He's guilty alright.

    And guess what Veda?

    His biggest most obnoxious crime he hasn't been found guilty of yet, I happen to know.

    It has not been revealed yet anywhere.

    I may the only person who knows about it.

    So lean in towards your monitor closer now and hold your breath, because I am going to tell you first.

    That son of a bitch had the nerve not to copy anybody else!

    I'm not trying to pull you away from the ethereal Hubbardian teat, not in the least.

    So, please, relax.

    I'll try to relax.

    This neighborhood of the forum I hoped to be the looney bin.

    The prosecutors, comm eves, witness' , justice architects, and reporters are back on the top floor.

    Removing myself from this message board

    "I will now ask Emma, to remove me from this message board totally".

    Is Emma running ambulance service now? Can't we leave without Emma removing us? Don't tell me I'm locked in here?

    "I registered here, with the hope of finding people who because of what they've experienced in Scientology, had grown up,.... "

    Well, I take full responsibility for that dissappointment.

    "Growning up" for me = "Avoid pain".

    I was deeply effected by Peter Pan at an early age.

    This has been a disappointment for many people.

    But Emma I think is getting mixed messages.

    The title says, "Removing myself myself from this board" then he asks Emma to do it for him.

    Go figure?

    Even I don't know what he wants.

    That was nothing. Sten went onto bigger & better feats of assholery after that little tantrum.

    Now he complains that I block his IP from reading the board.

    Go figure.

    I'll do. :(

    You do for me. :mad:

    Neither of us can do. :confused2:

    Gone. :bigcry:

    Emma's Original

    What Sten got upset about, I think, is that he came here expecting a copy or duplicate of some other forum. Probably ARS or Clambake or whatever.

    Why do XScientologists have to be packaged and catagorized?

    Emma hasn't copied anybody else's list or forum and that's why this one is so wildly popular.

    The way I see, the people that come here and protest or complain are all upset about the same thing.

    This forum was not a copy of another forum.

    It seem's XScientologists are going through a 60's period.

    I liken this forum to the Haight Ashbury or the East Villiage.

    Is that the penalty of public disavowal of ESMB? ;)

    So.. Are you in fact blocking Sten Arnes IP from reading this site Emma? - It can be done. On a home PC the file named lmhosts.sam in the system directory. A (good) firewall can do it too.

    Sten protested a lot about what he "expected to see...

    Is it just because I've slept around a lot that I can wake up in a new place totally foriegn to myself and not feel that my identity has been assaulted?
