    Oh. It depends on who is posting there, on a "tech discussions" thread.:D

    I think it's a perfect place for people to promote the cult (which Terrill doesn't do), just for the entertainment value. You still need to differentiate between people who are out of the Cof$ but don't agree with you 100% vs. people who are in the Cof$.

    Yeah, okay but. . .

    I spent 9 years actively protesting (you promoting Freezone Scientology on ESMB, lol).

    Adopt a pet, get another guardian angel. Can't have too many of those. And after they die, they reincarnate and come find you. And if you're one of the super smart people on this board, you don't recognize them when they do, because you're so damn smart.

    It seems to me that if someone has discovered the secrets of life then they should, at the very least, live a long and happy life themselves and when they finally decide to leave the body it should be in relatively good condition.

    Elephant in the room:

    L Ron Hubbard died aged 74 after several physical problems and was reportedly insane.

    "Captain" Bill Robertson, who apparently continued Hubbard's work and expanded upon it died aged 55 from cancer.

    Alan Walter, who pointed out where Hubbard had gone wrong and then developed his own system of self-improvement died aged 73 from cancer.

    I think anyone looking for a guru should perhaps look elsewhere.

    You're lucky. All the cats I've ever had the pleasure of hosting under my roof couldn't give a a toss about me as long as they got fed regularly. Now dogs, they're on a different level altogether as far as unconditional love is concerned IMO.

    As Fat Freddy's Cat was fond of saying - 'Call me what you like, just don't call me late for dinner'.

    ETA: It's interesting to note that the so-called 'big cats' show much more affection for humans that have befriended them than domestic cats who have been living with us for thousands of years do. Some of the vids on YouTube of lions, tigers and other big cats who have been reunited with old human friends is absolutely mind-blowing. When have you ever seen a domestic moggie show the unconfined joy displayed by their much larger cousins? Yes, they might make a big thing of scent-marking your legs to show that you are their property, but to want to embrace you? Not a chance.

    I think nearly all wild baby animals show unlimited affection, trust and loyalty when they are saved from death or a terrifying experience. Domestic animals often have no idea how tough their lives might have been.

    That does not include, of course, animals saved from shelters where they are provided lots of fresh air and running time as a pack, fresh meat, couches for sleeping, temperature control, dry and clean conditions and lots of affection. An animal "saved" from such a shelter who is then put on canned dog food, left outside and not allowed on furniture might feel pretty cheated and angry about it. ;)

    Kona kisses me on the face. She shows me more affection than any one else ever has. It is mutual.
    I have had other cats. Joie loved only me, and she loved being in my lap. I loved Shorty, and he loved me. Regina didn't give a toss.
    I've been privileged with many cats.
    Kona is special. She has lived with us for 21 years in July. We have grown old together. We grok each other.

    Is there an ARC break?:zombi:

    It sounds like your Kona really loves you. It's quite remarkable how strong a bond can exist between a human and an animal. 21 years is a hell of a long time to have lived together, I'm sure you really do grok each other.

    In answer to your other post - no, I don't have an ARC break. :biggrin:

    I'm not all that sure that the denigration of critical thinking actually validates magical thinking.

    Interesting. But I have been using the tech since 1951 ran out my engrams and am in good health at 88!
    Still, cancer shouldn't be a criterion. One in three people die from cancer, and Scientology was NEVER meant to cure cancer. And I don't know how this forum got that picture since I didn't give it to them.

    Phenomenon hasn't seen her daughter for many years...

    So...

    I'm raising seed money for D Sea Enterprises, my tech start-up. I got a killer app and a new gadget. Both are HOT!!!

    A $!00 short term loan (repaid with 10% interest NLT 21 October 2119) gets (a promissory note) for ten shares delivered at IPO.

    Now this might sound like a crazy old hippie's pipe dream but the people who pony up the seed money on SUCESSFUL start ups make BIG bucks, e.g. Warren Buffet. If you gave him $100 bucks of seed money and just let it ride you would today have stock and paid dividends in excess of four million dollars. The prognosis for ten year return on $100 seed money in D Sea is more than $10,000 and perhaps more than $100,000. The gadget is big time hot. I have a new way to make a black and white printer much smaller than can be made with a laser. Imagine a tablet with a 3/4 inch extension on one side the same thickness as the tablet with an eight and one half inch slit for the insertion of a blank eight and one half by eleven piece of paper which comes out the other side printed.

    No one who is anyone wants to be seen in the wifi coffehouse with yesterday's tablet now, do they?

    Don't all crowd around at once, everyone's bid for exclusive liscencing rights will be heard.

    So...

    I'm giving 50 shares to Phenomenon's daughter and sending them to Phenomenon. I'm sure any properly informed CoS Chaplain will be most solicitous in seeing the "ARCX" gets handled.

    Anyone interested in doing something similar for someone still in is referred to the thread "America is broken..."
