Scientology hawkers

Post by nexibello » Thu Sep 01, 2005 7:03 pm

spotted:
recently, evening, during shop-closing-time, center of the City of Berne, two Scientologists standing about / walking around, one with a "hawker's tray" (what a great translation for what you call "Bauchladen" in German, a vendor's tray), written "Stress Test" on the side of the tray. Bright red e-meter on the tray, no other material visible. The Scientologists, two young men, in discussion with a few young girls, one of them holding the soup cans.
I discussed the matter with some friends afterwards who live in or near Berne. They told me that they often get Scientology flyers ("You use only part of your brain" with Einstein picture) in their letter box and some said that Scientologists had visited them at home (or rather tried to).
I didn't know that those "Einstein flyers" are still in use as I haven't seen them for almost ten years (we found out that I might not get them because I have a "no advertisement" sticker at my letter box)

Tell them it's a myth that we only use ten percent of our brains. The bad news is we're using most of our brain with or without Scientology. The good news is that our brains are powerful enough, given the facts, to see that CoS is a fraud.

Even if it were true, ten percent of Einstein's brain is still doing and thinking more than a packed house at the cc
