They re looking in different directions, their shirts look dull, the upper arm isn't parallel to the ground, they don't look fit, and they're lacking spiffy hats and gloves.
The sea org staff members are also most likely suffering from sleep deprivation and malnutrition.

Unless Hubbard wrote more instruction on surveys after I left, which is quite possible, that survey is off policy and out tech. So is the letter for that matter. Never mind, though, Jennie's letters out stat is up.

In the Sacramento org's central files there is a fifty year old folder with a receipt for a book, thick with copies of letters sent to the buyer and no replies. Whatever profit the org made on the book sale has long since been used up, even with the org's meager wages, on staff time, office supplies, and postage.

I was on staff for Scientology in 1972, when L. Ron DeWolf was estranged from Scientology. At that time we received an OODS (Orders Of The Day), supposedly written by L. Ron Sr., in which there was a humorous story about Nibs. The veteran staff members said that 'Nibs' referred to Hubbard's father who accompanied him on the Apollo aka Flag. I have never seen anything to corroborate what they said.

This picture always gets me. The model of the Cutty Sark clipper ship in this photograph is built from a plastic kit. The sails are vacuformed. The actual ship was launched on November 22, 1869. Hubbard had nothing to do with it. It's a nice looking model when it's finished but it isn't exactly unique. The company that makes the kit has pretty much had it on the market almost continually since the 1950s.

It would be interesting to get a close up in focus picture of the one Hubbard has in that picture to see how well built it is.

Scientology buying up the downtown core in Clearwater and putting in an entertainment facility is entertaining. It's like trying to get a sailing ship to move by putting a fan on the rear deck. How can such a center make any money? Staff members don't get the time off, and don't have much money. Average Scientology public who go to orgs for services don't have time to get away and play. The whales of Scientology will use money for entertainment that they would have donated anyway.

Oh, well. Tom, Dave, John, Kirstie, have fun and good luck with that.

:popcorn:

Oh, and if Scientology is about to set up a motion picture production company, I, for one, will be boycotting it. It will make it really easy for me, as I only know and track four of five Scientology people involved in the motion picture industry. A Scientology company will be easier to track and avoid.
