But L.Ron Hubbard DID have style...

Scientology Mark Vl E-Meter Grey- barely used

So, I found one on eBay. I want this. I mean, I REALLY want this. A working Scientology E-Meter, for getting rid of all those nasty engrams, and foiling Xenu's fell plot.

It's not the working-ness I'm interested in. I mean, LOOK at it. This is Sci-Fi High Style. Great on the coffee table or mantel. The things are usually blue, so this neutral grey will go with almost any color scheme. I could even download all the Auditing questions, print 'em, and Clear all my friends and relations, for a nominal donation.

It could be a ministry...yeah, that's the ticket!

That, or it would look really cool on my desk next to SUPERCAR.

The South Park Scientology episode is amazingly clear on the weirdness that is Scientology.

Not to say they're CHEAP or anything...

The SF con we attended last weekend (DeepSouthCon 50) was typical of the sort. When we arrived to set up, there were neatly lettered signs on the tables establishing which dealer goes where. The reverse of the signs were like this:

 Someone had some old forms that they had kept for scratch paper or summat. Always a good thing to be frugal.

However, th' divvil is in th' details:

 So they have old memo forms that were revised in July 1990. Twenty-two years ago.

"Frugal" does not even begin....
