A 747 is an impressive technological feat of precision engineering. Propulsion, avionics, metallurgy, fabrication, and so much more come together into a marvelously aerodynamic aircraft that can fly at 570 mph/920 km/h. The 747 has a range of ~8,000 miles/ 13,000 km. Airlines like to post magnificent photos of their technology:

Despite airline PR, the reality of riding in coach on a 747 for nine hours from, say, LAX to Schilpol, is miserable and uncomfortable.

Image

It is even worse if one gets stuck in an airport far from home for endless hours or days:

The Cult of Scientology paints its technology as a marvel. Instead of showing the public sleek aircraft, however, the Cult showcases its Grandiose Dictator in stage sets that are a garish nightmare of overwrought design that suggest implanting stations:

The reality of being a member of the Church of Scientology is, by all accounts, pure Misery and Hell on Earth, Highlights include donating all of your money and volunteering to man stress test tables to recruit raw meat wogs into Scientology:

As a Scientologist, there are also the delights of fighting a hysterical battle against Psychiatry and waving certs in the air:

Some new airliners are so badly mishandled on the ground that they smash into a wall and are destroyed. This is a brand new Airbus with no flight time on it that was destroyed by a stupid ground crew: http://markpknowles.com/first-airbus-crash-photos/

Image

Some New OT VIII's like Richie Acunta are so badly mishandled by the IAS that they smash into a wall and are bankrupted. Richie donated $10,000,000 to be an IAS Diamond Meritorious Patron after which he hit a wall and went bankrupt:

When a 747 ends its useful service life there is no fond farewell or retirement party. Rather, a 747 is flown to a boneyard. At a boneyard planes are taken apart. All of their airworthy spare parts are sold and then the plane is brutally dismantled in a very short time and sold as scrap metal. Here are some images of once mighty 747's in boneyards:

When a Scientologist ends his or her useful service life to the Cult, Scientology declares them SP's and then Fair Games them by use of stupid and crude instruments:

Image

A Scientology SP Declare is not unlike shredding and destroying a once proud aircraft after every last dollar and ounce of service has been wrung from it:

When David Miscavige's phony foam stage sets end their useful life they are sent to a Scientology boneyard. Thanks to Axiom142 at ESMB, we have some great commentary and photos:

Quote:
...When they first started having the events at St Hill, they were held in the Great Hall and there was a quite tasteful oaken arch framing the stage. But this obviously wasn’t ostentatious enough for the Tiny Tyrant, so the stages and props got more and more fantastical, culminating in the monstrosities we see today.

Appropriately, the pillars and most other structural elements are constructed from polystyrene and chipboard with a flashy paint-job. All bling and no substance.

Hopefully in a couple of years, DM will be giving his presentation from here:

The boneyard at St. Hill is where Miscavige's Styrofoam Cult Props go to die. This makes sense as Styrofoam containers are used to package junk food and then thrown away. Miscavige's IAS events are just IAS Cult Junk Food packaged in gaudy Styrofoam that all winds up in the trash:

Image

The IAS Cult Junk Food gets thrown out and the $4,000 E-Meters wind up on eBay as Scientology detritus:

After everything is done and said, old airplanes and cults go the boneyard.

I see the day coming when Scientology consists of specialized parts in a field that are available to anyone who is interested:

Image

And I also want to see David Miscavige spending a long time in prison:

J. Swift.

Dazzling images. Yes, there is a lot of Fantasy.
I would like to comment on the E-meters.

In every facet of Scientology delivery there is ABUSE.
And so it is with Emeters.
In 2002 a team of Sea Org members were put through EXTENSIVE sleep deprivation in order to produce and beta test the new SUPER Mark VIII Emeter that the faithful flock were going to be further fleeced for.

A mere $4000 more.

The "New Mark VIII Ultra E-Meter." Getting there required hundreds of prototypes, designed, produced, and tested by auditors at the Int base. (Hardly any left NOW)

The meters were made in Japan. They have been sitting in a warehouse getting corroded since 2004.
Swifty, did you not do an analysis on what happens to aging electronics stored in a warehouse ?

Here's the Super Mark VIII !

Image

Will that be check, cash or VISA/Master card ?

Karen#1, the post I wrote on the Mark VIII E-Meters is reposted below. These meters were built in 2004 in Japan using an obsolete connector. The meters were then shipped to L.A. and stored in a Scientology warehouse on Bandini. David Miscavige supposedly gave his BFF Tom Cruise a Mark VIII as a special gift.

The Mark VIII meters will be eight years old in a few months. Electronics do not fare well when they are stored for a long time.

Quote:
Would you buy a computer from Best Buy that had been sitting in the back warehouse for five years? Of course not. These meters have been stored in a warehouse in L.A. near the 5 Freeway. There are several factors that attack and corrode electrical components in long term storage:

1. Particulates from air pollution including metals, chemicals, and even brake dust from cars and trucks.

2. Thermal cycling (hot to cold).

3. Oxidation on solder welds.

4. The desiccant package breaks down after about a year and will no longer absorb moisture. Moisture in the air migrates onto the electrical components and begins to contaminate them. A film forms that attacks the components.

The semiconductor industry routinely disposes of devices that have been on the shelf for one or two years. These devices are thrown away and recycled.

I would call the CA Attorney General, The Dept of Consumer Affairs and demand that CoS disclose to prospective buyers that these devices have been stored for five years in a non-climate controlled warehouse in consumer packaging not designed for long term storage.

I would also contact the District Attorney of Los Angeles with the same complaint. I would to the same wherever DM tries to peddle this old merchandise.

CoS would have to do a statistically valid sampling of the meters using SEM and TEM on the welds, visual inspection, chemical testing, and performance testing to prove to religious consumers that the pastoral counseling devices had not degraded during long term.

CoS Parishioners specifically rely upon the E-Meter for spiritual progress. Therefore, CoS Parishioners have a right to expect that these devices have not degraded and will therefore give them false reads in auditing.

COB’s failure to disclose long term storage and potential defects would constitute fraud.

The obsolete connection is not a practical problem.

It is however a matter of style, annything with a rs232 connector is going to look hoplessly outdated.
