I know 2 people who are now 'agnostic' due to Scientology, i.e. they thaught 'how stupid can they be' and urika!!!!, they are as stupid as me. I'm all for Scientology, it is the rotten apple in the basket.

My only worry is that it a bit more plausible that christiananity.

Is preists drink this much does it mean they are binge drinkers. They are fine example to be setting. Not a decent days work, telling people how to live and living off the charity from other people. Remainds me of some evangilistic nutters on the streets on major cities.

I used to live is an extremely old house in the country. Some of the spiders living in the walls (used to be a castle) were pretty big compared to the standard household types. Used to have to hover the walls every two weeks. Thinking back now I wonder if the building may have sprouted it's own eco ...

worked in the gardens for a convent one summer when I was 17. They took extremely good care of themselfs and they always had plenty of money. (and the only spirits floating was a shed full of alcahol out back) I honestly think nuns are worst than priests, anything that hunts in packs are always more...

DNA and the Law, Is it really a problem.

Looks like the Law wants to keep DNA samples on record and build a database and the civil liberties are against it. Even for someone who was suspected and cleared the sample may be kept or if you gave a sample as well as eveyone else in the area 'to rule yourself out' will be kept. I have always won...
