    Should I ask the obvious question?

    I was detained by the KGB twice. Firearms were not involved either time.

    My nephew is married to a Moscow girl. Her mother tells of how careful she must be in what she writes about cultural events in Moscow for the paper she works for.

    Udarnik are you Russian and did you leave? Or still live there? If you don't mind personal questions.

    My older sister was a well known Mathematician. Her field was Topology.

    I was going to ask if you were in the KGB but this answer could go into a whole new thread. Unless, of course, it is too touchy or still a hot item.

    I was just a bit curious as I have found that when I have 'flight at night dreams' which is not that often recently, I wake up very refreshed and cheerful.

    Side stepping back into the topic of this thread I am dreaming of more flight with each success of Mosey in her court case. :yes:

    I'm about as 'Murrican as they come. My mom's side has been in the country for over 400 years, one ancestor fought in the Revolution. My daughter can join the DAR though that. I would love to see their faces when they read her whole name out on her application, including the Chinese part. :biggrin:

    My dad's side emigrated here from Prussia and Pomerania between 1860 and 1880.

    I was in the USSR from 1989 - 1991. The latter half of that was in Lithuania. I lived through this, even though State told me to get my ass outta dodge.

    The firearm dreams are usually me in a firefight with no bullets or bullets that hit and bounce off. I have an idea they stem from watching the events of those days with no way to defend myself.

    No. I'm a never-in, so I don't have that emotional connection.

    I don't have flight dreams but I do have skiing dreams, and the motion is close to flying. What is odd is how many of them are night skiing. They usually involve going up the lifts, sometimes on steep moguly slopes, other times with grass poking through the wet snow. But many times it's just flying down the slopes with lots of long swooping turns.

    I skied a lot as a kid growing up, and try to get in a few days of skiing each year. The last time I went I got hit on my first run, two times by snowboarders. It took weeks to recover from the second hit. He ran into me from behind and I fell on him and his upturned knee hit my low back at my kidney. It was his first time out and he, in his mid twenties, had no idea how to stop or turn.

    The skiing sounds like fun but it is true you have to watch out for those Chair men of the boards. Especially if they are carrying an 8 pointed cross and claim immunity from depositions. Pure idiots recklessly heading downhill faster everyday.

    Hope you recovered completely.

    Re: Rathbun v Miscavige -- Mandamus Petition (Appeal) -- Hearing Soon - Yay!

    Just wanted to let everyone know that our own LoneStar (<----:clap:) has posted that there will be 4 (or more) extra sets of eyes/ears in the Austin courtroom for the hearing on Wednesday, April 9, 2014 @ 1:30 p.m.

    The appellate panel is tasked with deciding whether Judge Waldrip's Order to have Captain David Miscavige (nee Miskiewicz) narrowly deposed is an abuse of his (Waldrip's) discretion.

    TeamRTC+DM is also expected to argue* that neither RTC nor DM are legally required to remain as named parties in this lawsuit because they are beyond the legal jurisdiction of Judge Waldrip's court.
    In their filed papers, TeamRTC+DM attorneys referred to their clients as Special Appearance Defendants ("SAD"). <-----:yes:LOL.

    Musing about the hearing itself, I can't wait to hear how the TeamRTC+DM attorney explains that, on the one hand, DM should not be deposed because he's a "pope" but, on the other hand, he's already been deposed in another civil litigation. That explanation requires tap shoes, folks.

    This Petition was filed on Valentine's Day and roughly 7 weeks later it's set for a hearing.
    That's relatively quick...but then, there's nothing in the Rules that says the appellate panel has to issue their ruling by a certain date.
    Still, I think this ruling will come before June 15, 2014.
    And I think they will rule against TeamRTC+DM.

    Popcorn @ the ready,

    JB

    ETA *They're going to try to argue this point even though it's not 'technically' ripe for this hearing.

    Captain David Miscavige (nee Miskiewicz)

    Rathbun v Miscavige - Mandamus Appeal Re: Order to Depose Miscavige

    Yes...according to his father's new book which was the subject of yesterday's story @ The Underground Bunker.
    (Years ago, lots of people newly-arrived to America changed their surnames, but today?
    Miskiewicz looks/sounds more "American" than Miscavige.)

    WHAT? A few years ago, I made a joke here on ESMB, saying that I'd prefer the Czech spelling: "Dawitch Miczciewicz". I can't believe that I unintentionally got so close to the truth. :faint:

    Bravo, MrNobody!

    FunFact: The word 'miscavige' means 'terrified of deposition' (aka 'scaredy-pants depositionphobe'). :yes:
