    But Orcs ARE scrawny, short little things.

    Zinj's thinking of the other creatures...Uruk-Hai,

    THEY ARE beefy Warrior types with long hair...(with the white hand painted onto their faces).

    Pic of an Orc (You won't even have to paste DM's face on it, it already looks like him in the morning, I bet :p )

    Nobody test me...I KNOW my LOTR shit (Movies, anyways). :p

    Okay you ASKED for it

    You really don't even have to photoshop anything. These guys are just naturally creepy and absurd. I suppose the little guy at the end could be DM.

    DM video game style......

    In the same vein, anyone ever play Resident Evil 4? It's about this cult run by an egotisical, shrieking, vertically-challenged evil dude given to self-indulgent pontifications about himself and his cult; said cult consisting of mindless folks who are infested with parasites that control them. Sound familiar? Dead serious--see below for a picture of this crazy uniformed leader backed by a couple of his OSA, I mean loyal henchmen (same difference?). :D

    Now that you point it out, the similarities are way, way, uncanny. DM = salazar (thassisname in the game, right?)

    So, to all the exes here: how'd you get the parasite out of your body? Did you have to use one of those cool zappy machines?

    Dan is assuredly not gay although he has a certin kind of writerish sensibility. I knew him when in. He is a brilliant writer, hilarious, and very very bright. Much smarter than the people he's dealing with on a daily basis. Last I heard he was in the Hole. I also knew Manot, who was wonderful. French Canadian. I can only imagine how her death must have impacted him... I miss him and have thoughts @ breaking him out.

    I'm sick of the American cliché that if you're sensitive and not macho then you're gay.
    Dan is nice and I didn't know his wife had died. She was the one who taught me that LRH had been married three times. She also pointed that there were many things in LRH history that weren't known. I guess Dan talked too much.
    Of course Dan spends more time writing for COB than writing the biography.
    The main challenge in writing that biography is that it has to match Hubbard's lies in his lectures while also dead agenting his actual life.
    Such as "Hubbard was in Jack Parsons' circle" but that was as a spy for the US! Was fleeing with his money also for the US?
    Anyway, one of the most incredible piece of creative writing was the briefing that explained that if Hubbard had two different accounts in his navy records (actually he has only one but Hubbard tells a different story), it was because one was a fake account created to deceive enemy spies!

    I always wondered about something: there are all these people in LRH briefings (March 13th events) who make testimonies about knowing Ron and how fantastic he was. In Gold they were called "talents" and that made me wonder if they were actors rather than real witnesses.
