    I've got one that tops the lot. I mean this one is just WILD!

    I've done all of the bridge myself and I think it was great! I loved it!

    Now just how perverse is that?

    You're right, Leon.

    Lamest thing I ever heard.

    I met some guy when I was in CofS, can't remember his name, anyway, I did not get along with him as he was way too party line for me. My (now former) good friend intro'd J and me to the guy and later told me that the guy had done the SHSBC twice. (most here know, I'm sure, how time consuming and expensive a course that is.) I said to him "Didn't he get it the first time?" My humor was not appreciated.

    Being new on staff and being ordered to give up art modelling as a moonlight job because it was "out-ethics". Being told that I'd just have to accept a probable 70% reduction of an hourly wage rate and being told that bar work was fine :duh: Yep, real fine! No "responsible service of alcohol" in those days. Somehow helping the intoxicated get fuckin blind was fine, but contributing to art (and getting paid well for it), was not.

    Hey, if you who gave me that order, see this post - no hard feelings - it opened my eyes to some of the think around the place. That did me a favour. I often thought about you since you left/were declared (about a year later) and in the last 10 years I've often thought about how you are doing. Would love to hear from you.

    You'll never meet a New OT8 who will actually claim to be cause over matter, energy, space and time etc (you may see CofS propaganda to that effect). If you do, you're listening to someone who either didn't do New OT8 or didn't spot the actual Truth Revealed.
    Don't be too surprised at New OT8s acting like ratty assholes, how would you feel if you spent all that time and money, jumped through numerous arbitrary hoops, put up with all sorts of demeaning crap from MAAs and abased yourself to the Gods of RTC only to end up finding out what every OT8 finds out about "The Bridge To Total Freedom"? You can't unknow it, eh, Mike? :bigcry:

    The definition of OT is all over the courses, dictionary ...not just propaganda..... but i would have to sit down and find that to show you....and that would mean opening my closet of scilon waste.....:no:

    I know that full well, BG.
    My point is that an individual who has done OT8 won't claim to have stably achieved those abilities or that result, unless, of course he/she is delusional or lying to you. :confused2:

    Interesting that you say that...because I never thought to ask one while I was in... :confused2: I just naively assumed they had this secret life where they did magical stopping hurricanes, saving the know....:witch2:

    But a friend knew an OT8 very well-as a good friend--and this OT8 told him that he functioned in a different plain of existence and that it was like being on another planet most of the time ! :roflmao: :roflmao:

    I kid you not.... then he just dropped dead one day out of the blue......

    I know many New OT8s.
    Different plane of existence? Yes.
    Another planet? Probably just arrived on this one, ie: came into now.
    Stopping hurricanes? They wish, like everyone else.
    Secret life? More like enforced w/h.
    Dropped dead? Simple solution.

    BG...I forgot another lamo OT explanation I lapped up like the good little puppy I was......

    One OT8 who came to our org. said that when he finished OT8 he was sooooooooo blown oooouuuuutttt that he couldn't find the ship!!!!!! He was floating out in space and had to "recalibrate his anchor points"!!!!!

    My lord, how do these guys spew out this crap with a straight face.....:duh:

    Boy they must have really turned up the electricity that day for that OT8--give him a little more juice so he can attest....:dieslaughing:

    Looking back, I really dont get how people can speak that way and be serious...I really dont get it ! :duh: I mean what IS that phenomena really...I think one day enough research will be done and the answer will appear!!

    contact assist

    just while you guys are telling funny stories one I can think of just after I left the Sea Org (AOSHUK) and got together with my 'blown' girlfriend who grew up in the cult while in London.
    I had started a job at Madonalds to earn some cash and she was meant to start the next day, we were both glad to have found at least some work to pay the bills.
    On the evening before my girlfriend started at Macdonalds we were out somewhere in London down a side street and she stumbled and fell, hurting her wrist pretty badly.
    We got home then we noticed, OH MY GOD, we didnt do a contact assist.
    So we went back pretty late that night to carry out the so important assist.
    Of course it was dark, and we soon found the place she fell on the sidewalk.
    She then continued to tumble on the floor, repeating the action and movement etc. (Must have looked hilarious)
    We had hardly started it when we noticed that a police car was approaching us from a distance so we both scarpered off in different directions.
    I ended up in the sideway of a house nearby and my girlfriend somewhere else.
    You can imagine how embarassing when the policeman found me and asked what I was doing there.
    My girlfreind came running up trying to explain everything.
    Yeah, we were young and naiive, but devoted $cientologists.
    We still giggle when we think back to that one......

    Jesus God..... they could have locked you up in a sanitarium for a few days and you might both have come out sane. That's how close you were to escape. :bigcry:

    "I know you are getting married. You have only CSW approval for one day off - see you day after tomorrow. Sorry, your plane tickets don't have a say in this - neither does your hotel booking, you family. Going up the bridge is more important."

    What a crock of shit.

    When I was at AOLA 2 SO members were waiting in reception until the minister they'd asked to marry them was free from her post. The girl looked over at me and said something about if she'd known it was going to take this long she would have put on some mascara.

    Guess the wedding planner forgot the make-up. Oh and the dress, the tux, the guests, the reception, the honeymoon, and so on! lol
