    See, Paul, I knew it. You're the reason we all blew.

    There's one tape I heard one time where he stated that he traded saying pro cess instead of prah cess so that the Brits would say en gram instead of eng rum.

    Well, I don't think I ever heard any Brits say eng rum, but Hubbard had nothing to do with it in my opinion. Tomayto tomarto - let's call the whole thing off. :biggrin:

    I once took over from the course sup while he left the room for a few minutes. I immediately spotted a student who was just staring blankly into space. When I went over to him I found he was stuck on the reason why HCOBs were in red ink and HCOPLs were in green ink. He knew they were different colours because they were different types of document but he wanted to know "why red and green?".

    This highlighted another problem with the rules in scientology - I wasn't allowed to discuss this problem with him because of "no verbal tech". I also had no idea why they were red and green but I considered the colouring scheme to be irrelevant so I showed him some reference on the relative importance of data. I can't remember what it was but I was basically trying to show him that this wasn't important so he should just get on with his studies.

    Unfortunately he wouldn't budge but I was saved by the course supervisor returning and he took over the handling. A few minutes later I noticed the sup asking the student for the definition of a word and before he could answer the sup's eyes flickered then closed and he fell asleep. I gave him a nudge to wake him up and I wrote a KR on him and when I later spoke to his boss, the OES, he said "Not again?".

    Just another brief look into the crazy world of scientology.

    There is another photo online, very similar to this, except the needle is at near Set. One could see that Hubbard moved the tone arm to make it look like there had been a fall. Fake as always.

    Well, let's hope that he went by the tech book and sent the tomato to the examiner after the session.

    No, this would be American...

    In the US "met" tends to have an assumed "for the first time," as "I met the president;" very different from (to) "I met with the president."

    Currently in the US, instead of saying "the president met with his cabinet", we say "the president watched TV".

    You know that you've really traveled when you have used a turkish toilet.

    I had to Google it but that clearly shows why companies and Western locations have had to put in signage like this.

    Stories abound of Muslims crapping in showers and such because of the design of the Turkish toilet!!

    Makes sense now.
