I’m a guy
A guy who seems calm but plays when he plays
A guy who goes completely crazy when the right time comes
A guy who has bulging ideas rather than muscles

That kind of guy

South Korean K-pop star Psy’s 2012 megahit Gangnam Style satirises posers and wannabes who put on airs and claim to be something that they are not. “People who are actually from Gangnam never proclaim that they are,” he observes.

[L. Ron Hubbard and W.F.G. Swann]

[Make sure you don’t miss yesterday’s late-breaking news about Scientology and David Miscavige being sued in a new lawsuit.]

It only recently came to our attention that an apologist journal, CESNUR, published a couple of breathless articles in recent months trying to prove that L. Ron Hubbard never claimed to have a civil engineering college degree, and that any mentions of his “C.E.” were incorrectly included in books and magazine articles or Church of Scientology publications against his wishes.

While Scientology shrinks, its ‘Ideal Orgs’ pretend they are booming

[“How Big Was Old Saint Hill?” asked this 1960s Scientology booklet.]

How big was Old Saint Hill? Scientology published at least two versions of this booklet with photos and statistics of the East Grinstead, England org while L. Ron Hubbard was living there from 1965-1967, with a brief trip to Rhodesia in the middle. Hubbard fled England for life on the sea in 1967, but Scientologists hold up Old Saint Hill as the standard for a booming org. Creating an Ideal Org today is great as a first step, but making it Saint Hill Size is a higher standard.
