i can't sleep ( as usual ) so i figured i'll bother you all with a little story from my wild youth (hey... wait, that's not even over yet !). anyway, when i was 15 scientology started to appear in germany in the media. the became famous for threatening people if they wanted to leave them. their reputation was worse than that of jehova's whitnesses. in my town they offered this personality test where no matter what you answered would get a result that, of course, suggested that you definetly need to join scientlogy to fight your personal weakness. one day i and two other friends had the stupid idea that we wanted to do that test. oh man... we were so stoned... the whole experience was so horrible ! as we walked into their building we all had the feeling that only brain washed people where around us. they all acted like totally mindless zombies. we didn't know that someone had passed a law that required you to be 18 to do this test so they wouldn't let us. however they offered us a free counceling. we were led into a room that had a tv and a cd player and two benches. they closed the door behind us and some wiered trance musio started playing. the very moment we heard the door click behind us we thought : "we'll never get out here alive !". stoned as we were we got totally in panic. the woman that talked to us looked like one big mass of make up and tried to tell us how great their whole organisation was... blablabla. suddenly the trance cd would start looping. it was not like the usual dakdakdakdak loop but rather a short 4-5 sec loop. this made us snap. we all had the same thought that we where about to be brainwashed and jumped up as one and tried to get out. at first we even wanted to get out of the window but then ran to the door and out on the street. the woman that talked to us must have thought that we are total maniacs. the lesson for me was never to do things that have a potential for paranoid attacks again when stoned. but i tell you scientology is really scary...

i read your post about 3 times. It still seems like some ancient language to me. I just came back from uni, so maybe that's why.

ancient language ? sorry the fluidness of my english might have suffered from the late hour...
