    Someone posted a link to this video earlier today and I've been laughing all day. I can't find the post now, so I'll give it it's own thread. It's hilarious. James Spader is quickly becoming my favorite actor.

    Great scene.

    The Boston Legal writers and producers deserve a little credit, too. :coolwink:

    Watching that video clip could save some people half a million dollars or more. How awesome!

    One might also note that when it was originally broadcast, there wasn't a sudden outbreak of deadly pneumonia. The logical cognition from this is that L Ron Hubbard was a damn liar. Again.

    I actually saw this when it first aired. Great episode, and LOVE James Spader. Very funny show, never missed an episode. Great cast with William Shatner, Candace Bergen, and others. I wish they would run the whole series again. James Spader's rants were always priceless.

    But what was with the farting reference? Is there an LRH reference to back that up??? LOL!!

    That was from October 2006.. the 'Whose God Is It Anyway?' episode.

    James Spader's character is defending an attorney who fired another attorney in his firm because the latter is a Scientologist. Actor Chris Diamantopoulos portrayed the Scientologist.

    The farting thing... and the manifestations of getting rid of engrams is kind of a mis-u on their part but so funny anyway.. since people do such things in session so I'm told

    I thought it was a reference to the bronze dog or whatever the fuck that thing is. Eaten up and shat out.

    Of course. The radioactive souls of these poor, vaporized alien creatures continue to enter into our bodies, implanting these engrams of which we have to purge themselves.

    When one releases an engram, it's accompanied by yawns, tears, sweat, body odor, panting, urine, vomiting and other excreta. In other words, every time we piss, puke, fart or crap, we're a step closer to immortality. :biggrin:

    At first I thought the video was a fictitious or altered TV scene created by anonymous. (I never heard of Boston Legal until now).

    I gathered that the lawyer was making a point about the absurdity of scio by taking the absurdity further and making up the farting/vomiting/urinating reference.

    I've seen that clip before but it never gets old :biggrin:

    And yes James Spader is a wonderful actor, even when he played the villain dirtbag Steff in Pretty in Pink I thought he was talented.
    I can't believe he is 53 where does the time go? :omg:

    Enjoyed that one heheh...

    Also noticed at the top of that video was an ad from Scientology.... "Truth about Scientology" LOL

    Couldn't imagine a high degree of hits on that one.

    You know that David Spade and James Spader are different actors...?

    I remember when that first came out, it was ....:hysterical:

    I love the part where the Scientologist on the stand says "And Christians believe Jesus Christ will come back? Are they nuts?" Spader response "Most"

    Obviously no one here has undergone the new fart-tech superpower rundown. :thumbsup: If you fart hard enough, you're able to leave your body.:hifive: Of course, anyone near you has also left their body to avoid you.:yes:

    Should you hear/smell a loud near sonic one, that could be LRH on his way back.:omg: Duck and cover (and hold your nose)!:wasntme:

    But then, again, it could just be Kirstie Alley!:whistling:
