    Probably scared of the bad PR. What you might call a chicken cultlet.

    There's no way this picture was taken in the 80s and/or 90s was it?? These uniforms are recent. As of the 2000s.

    The picture was not taken before the mid-90's.... have a look at the ""-sign. There was no internet in the 80's and early 90's.

    As are the haircuts and the picture quality.

    As Uncover pointed out, the first time I saw a ".com" on an ad in the real world (on a truck, IIRC), and knew that my kids would live in a different technological mindset from me, was in the early 2000s.

    You should really read more on the internet.

    Then you would have known that a far more logical conclusion would have been that someone that works for Penske (in 2016) time-traveled back--and that explains how they appeared in that decades-old photo.

    FYI: There is no mystery, speculation, pseudoscience or "woo" about this. Simply check Google and that will confirm that there are 87,600,000 results from just searching the words "time travel" alone. Case closed!

    In order to resolve such confusion about time matters
    I used my Oatee powers (even though unreal to people)
    to channel the ultimate truth of time, place, form or event.

    The shooting took place exactly
    on 14 march of 2006 at 11:05:15

    this was a digital image
    shot with a Canon PowerShot A700

    That one took much pink and blue rays out of the head:nervous:

    You summed it up really well. I too remember those happy days. Not that it had much to do with Scn itself or the tech, but there were always a lot of awesome people in Scn, people who wanted to help others and make a difference.

    Some one of the little messenger girls, in1971, stole all of my white shorts that I brought aboard. Also stole my underwear.

    Her expression fits your description.

    Hubbard looks like he's got a broom handle stuck up his butt.

    My such a happy gathering. Did someone just fart?

    Yeh, the guy on their left looks as though they just dug him up out of a grave! Or is it the guy who played Dracula in the movie?

    Such a smile . . .

    I have come across a few staff/SO (or more than a few?) who had an "entitlement mentality", where they justified the idea that they were entitled to stuff because they were so special and "clearing the planet".

    Yup. :yes: The world and everyone in it owed them meals, money, friendship, clothes, courtesy, to buy books or pay IAS donations for their support, or to even bring toilet paper to the org, but for some mysterious reason, the Church of Scientology, their multi-billion dollar employer that lavishes money on celebrities, limos, first class airfares and empty buildings was exempt. What a strange sort of logic in this "I am a hero for saving the planet" way of thinking.

  20. That's creepy. Good luck getting out of their grip.
