They certainly won't be interested in me then - apart from not having more money than I know what to do with, they would have trouble finding anything with which I could be blackmailed. Can there really be that many people who have dreadful guilty secrets? Weird!

This is what the police are up against - apparently he has 50 million followers that all went on the rampage after he was charged with rape.

I find it totally unbelievable that there are 50 million gullible people who don`t have their own minds.

Flash lighting in this video I`m afraid :-

No probably not interested in you or me Freedom. It doesn`t have to be dreadful guilty secrets, just any private thoughts or acts from childhood until now. With someone like Tom Cruise, who would have poured out every thought from childhood onwards, things he has thought privately, fantasies, desires, lies he has told, people he has cheated - they could easily say we are going to tell the press if you don`t give us more money. It is only when you have gone through everything without the meter moving off zero that you become `a clear` - that`s what he meant by cancelled.

The one time he played in a film called "Magnolia" [highly recommended BTW] I could appreciate him, probably because he impersonated himself, that is an absolute, undeniable, f*cking, over the top "ass" ...
Pardon my French ;-)

At about 7:00 mins on here, it shows how the monitor is used in dianetics - this would be pretty useful for testing the Tapas 9 Surprised

I think we've mentioned the Westboro Baptist Church before but it's not on this topic.

They are loathsome but at least they are just a small community and their poison isn't being spread worldwide.

The bit at the end here will make you cringe.

Religion what would we do without it.
Most start with a God how else can we explain the first man. Most creatures big and small will walk and eat within the first few days, it takes humans 12 months to walk much longer to to be self sufficient. No chicken or the egg here. Couldn't have evolved from a baby as wouldn't have survived. Didn't evolve from apes, as apes are still here.Scientists still havn't found the missing link ( Don't say it's me Freedom Evil or Very Mad ). So where did we evolve from. Why out of all the creatures on Earth have our brains progressed more than any one else's. Monkeys, apes,elephants, birds all been around longer than Man so why haven't their brains progressed like ours.Like the planet of the apes, shouldn't they have adapted first to wear clothes, hunt with weapons light fires etc.
Put a human in the sea with a highly evolutioned ( Is there such a word Very Happy ) great white which species would survive ? Put a human on land with all the meat eating carnivores, who would survive ?
We are not strong in comparison.We see fossils of birds with feathers etc. Where are the fossils of early man with feathers or fur to protect us from the weather ? In the beginning we must have had a brain that could learn adapt and progress to survive, a baby couldn't do this, it would have died. How come we didn't become bigger stronger than the ape to survive, but our brains are more intelligent than any other creature on the planet. Why just us.
So if evolution is correct how can animals walk so soon after birth, yet we cannot. Because they needed to survive.
So how come our brains are so advanced, because when we were put on Earth we needed it to survive.
Eve eating the Apple. At least the Bible explains why we became aware of what we were and how our brains began to think and gave us command over every living thing, can Science do that ?
I'm not a Bible thumper, but Science hasn't explained Creation and they change their theories all the time.
So Religion will always be a way of controlling the masses because it's the only thing really that makes sense, and people good and bad will use it to force their opinion and interpretation on others. IMO
