    the new emeter

    "There are currently 20,000 of these white elephants sitting in the Bandini warehouse in Los Angeles, awaiting the day when DM decides to release them to the world".

    And I reckon after keeping them stashed for four to six years he will stand up at an event and tell everyone it is VITAL that they have one right now for training and students will not be permitted to use the old ones as "squirrel".

    If that isn't glee I don't know what is.

    He whopped my sorry ass too.

    But it wasn't personal.

    Besides, I rolled with the punch.

    He's just got some "My way or the highway" issues.

    I've been seeing a lot of that lately.

    I think that's such an important thing to realise. Take the theta personally, but don't take the entheta personally.

    "Pain is extremely perishable. Pleasure is recorded in bronze. (Not poetry here, science. Physical pain will delete with brief attention; a pleasant or even media-media experience is so solidly fixed in the mind that no treatment known to Dianetics will shake it and a great deal of effort has been leveled at pleasure recordings just to test them for permanence. They are permanent; physical pain is perishable.)"

    Hubbard

    You can't audit out the theta, you can't make it dissapear.

    Only the entheta.

    The theta posts and pleasure people found here will be remembered forever.

    The entheta disappears.

    If you really want to be unforgettable, cause pleasure.

    Edit buttons

    No responsibilty clause

    I have 30 minutes time machines now on editing a post.

    If I try to edit more than 30 minutes past my TM I get a box with a message in it saying my time is up.

    I guess I'm going to have step up to the plate and make final desicions about what I really want to say.

    I feel that "responsibility" is being forced on me.

    That means I have "consequences" to face up to.

    Justice has crept it's little toe in, leaving the door open just a smidget for punishment availability.

    I really tired of repeating myself as a poster.

    I have a policy now not to repeat anything.

    I am posting things without Federal Forum Administration Approval.

    Nothing here has been approved by the Federal Forum Administration .

    Please read at your own risk.

    Because an annoying few have changed the meaning of their posts after someone else has replied, the option only remains for 30 mins after posting.

    Emma did say that if there was significant reason to change something in a locked post, she would consider it.

    Maybe you should start a blog.

    OOOOOH! Changed the meaning!

    Well, I don't do that.

    I add on!

    Or take it off if it annoys someone.

    But changing meaning, that's not fair at all.

    Well thank you for explaining that.

    Now I think it's a good idea to have a TM on the editing.

    I think that's why I didn't get too bent out of shape on the OT3 incident.

    It never bothered me to wake up in a strange place and not remember how I got there.

    It's just details.

    I mean, as long as there was a coffee machine in the place.

    "Should" is an enforce word.

    "Maybe" is an escape word.

    This recommendation suggests liberty and entrapment at the same time, a little bit abbrakadabbra, but thanks. :witch:

    Leave the Org here and open my own mission?

    Gee, that sounds familiar.

    Naahhh, I'm not one of those "front lines" people.

    I like hanging out in the basement at Emma's place.

    Y'all have the whole rest of the building.

    Until I get an official notice from Emma to vacate I'll just carry on.

    Who said anything about leaving?

    Blogging is in addition to being here.

    Blogging is sort of like having your own private thread.

    "Privacy" isn't a button of mine. It's quite impossible. Another one of those "unattainable" goals set forth to frustrate and torment people.

    Neither "OWN". You can only own the particles you create and if you can call them back to you, otherwise it's recycled and borrowed and shared.

    Frankly, at this late date, I think "I" is a continuous lie.

    So Is "YOU", it's always "Y'all".

    It's always "WE".

    Life is one big time share.

    Again, we thanks y'all for the generous support and encouragement though towards us.

    Nah, I disagree.

    That gives you three words to work with.

    ooops, eleven,

    aaaaaaw, thirteen

    enough!

    By the way, did you get to Doc Cavalier's funeral?

    Did you check out the pack of cigarettes in his shirt pocket?

    He still looked hot as a pistol even as a dead man I would have liked three hours with that body.
