Perhaps you think of these people as "funny"-- but I say (verily, unto you) you must not be so quick to dismiss them as loser punchlines to a bad cult joke.
These are profoundly important people, deserving of far greater respect! Why? Because, it's not easy to save the entire planet whilst living in your mom's basement with nothing more than a dog-eared photo of Ron and the little perceptic wheel* from Self Analysis.
* Former Sea Org members reborn as "Indie Scientologists" carry a perceptic wheel with them at all times. In the event that they get "enturbulated" by wog "reality" that is "not real to them", they simply whip out their handy disc and recall pleasure moments from the good old theta days when insanity-free and criminality-free Ron was around and planetary clearing was happening pocketa-pocketa (on this planet) and so forth.
That lil wheel only has 12 perceptions, front & back.
Everybody march to the Super Power building to take advantage of 57 perceptions.
don't forget, it's BYOO (bring your own oil)
