Some people believe the lies they are told.
O/T. The precinct surrounding the Church of Scientology of Los Angeles voted for Trump over Biden.
Los Angeles Times tool:
In 2016, Trump won the precinct by just three votes, 347 to 344. Trump increased his margin of victory this year. See:
Los Angeles Times: Trump won this little chunk of Los Angeles, where half of voters are linked to Scientology
The flyer of the “Student Hat Dictionary” with the “Self Determinism Scale” is hilarious. And then even as a bonus with the detail of the pics of the fish* and the bird*, additionally in reverse alphabetical order.
(* “Do birds fly/Do fish swim?”, used as a repetitive question in Scientology TRs (=Training Routines).)

When I met Miscavige on the top deck of the Freewinds in 1988 after OT VIII, my thoughts were formed by a small group of OT VIII’s who I led and who were ready to revolt against him and take control of Scientology. My intent was to “overboard” Miscavige and throw him into the Ocean if he threw the first punch. Miscavige never threw the first punch so he escaped and my friends bent back in fear into Scientology and all died within a few years. The intensity of the incident still remains as I can still duplicate the massive concentration of the clenched fists and still feel the enormous force that would have been released to knock him out and lift him over the guard rail and throw him into the Sea below. I look back at this in awe and explain it with natural logic. I have since apologized to Ron Miscavige who is David’s father. This allows me to only sleep soundly at night.
How Miscavige lives his life is one of the great mysteries. More secrecy than the situation in North Korea. He was apparently in Clearwater last month, but no idea how that devil travels around.
Can anyone tell me just what it is the lady appears to be holding?
Is this meeting taking place in a supermarket? If so, maybe the lady is pushing a grocery cart? It is just very difficult to make out what that tiny thing is in the bottom right hand side of two frames. Could it be a shopping cart handle?
I don’t know why. But I seem to be overly curious about what is going on in these panels.

In case that was a serious question, the answer is it’s a phone!
It looks like a cell phone to me.
Panels getting you curious? Maybe go watch scamtology tv? Sorry, just couldn’t help myself.
Go watch scamtology tv?
Glenn, I said I wanted to satisfy my mind. Not destroy it.
TOTALLY understand Skyler. Agree, mental death would definitely be the End Phenomena.
Glenn, thank you. I try to learn at least one new thing every day. Thanks to you, I now understand what “End Phenomena” means. I now only have 450 strange terms left to learn in the Dictionary of the scam.
The Dictionary of this scam certainly appears to be designed for dicks. But I will keep on struggling – as best as I can. Thanks again.
” The Dictionary of this scam certainly appears to be designed for dicks.”
It also seems to work well on ass holes. Take Dave for example ………

The lady is holding her Smartphone.
To see it better, click on the image, then on the Zoom circle, at far left side of the little blue panel that appears on the upper right, outside the image.
I don’t know if it can be seen, unless viewed on a screen 14″ – 15″ or larger.
Thanks very much The level of technical excellence is certainly greatly improving in this forum. Time once was that I thought I was technically astute here. But now? I feel like a technical dummy compared to most of the folks here. Heh. Heh.

You are welcome. Nowadays I am a genuine Luddite compared to my wife. I just discovered Bluetooth-connected headphones last month, because she gave me her old pair and the instruction manual, all two paragraphs of it.
It feels odd to be behind the times, because I was an early adopter of all things PC computer and Internet back in the late 80s and early 90s. Yet today I can hardly keep up with all the new stuff that shows up nearly every day.
I keep wanting a drone, one with a good camera, because they take photos from unique angles. But then I discovered you need a license. A license to fly a toy airplane? Sheesh.

Yep. When fitted for new hearing aids the technician asked for my phone to download the app for controlling the ear pieces through my phone. I handed her my 9 year old flip phone and she just stared at it, and then at me…… Talk about recognizing you are , not only old, but left in the dust.
Oh. Maybe it is the Student Hat Dictionary?
Looks like they are standing in line somewhere and she is holding her smartphone.
Skyler: My guess is the woman is looking at her mobile device.
Looks like her mobile phone.
Thank you to everyone who replied to my question. It makes me very happy to think so many people here will take the time to help others to understand things.
I want to say a special hello to Jenyfurrr. She is one of the very first people I ever met online who told me about this forum. I consider Jenyfurrr to be a special friend of mine.

….having recently waited in an hours long voting line-up, I assumed this was the case here.
RB is often topical and includes nods to current events.

Fruitful post, lotta good stuff here. It took me some months after completing the new Student Hat to spot why I disliked it (even with that gorgeous and picturesque new dictionary), compared to the previous version I completed in the 1990s. The new Student Hat, to me (without any outside influence in my thinking), was an indoctrination. The previous version, which I liked very much and used frequently in life, felt like it was FOR ME.
The GAT II dictionary is real, isn’t it? If I ask a clam in my family they’ll happily show me, and then try to sell it to me a copy or two, won’t they.
Wow that was a good one!

Nice reminder that ANY “SP” is stronger than ALL the OTs in the area. Generally, they just run away, walk away, or hide away. NO confront

Love the “psych determined” definition, having “donated” LESS than 50% of net NOW, what would pan-determined” be?, I wonder…..Must start by “donating” more than 100% of net worth.
