Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard while he was still sane told his son
"You know how to get rich... start a religion." admitting that Scientology is nothing but a fictionally created story.
Scientology is nothing but a corporation that thrives off the ignorance of it's followers by selling them and whoever else books, and courses on how to "improve" themselves spiritually.
One of their expensive scams is that they will sell you for extremely large
amounts of money a series of books that in the end are supposed to teach you how to walk through walls.... and after spending long hours of self deceptive meditation, a lot of money, and reading you become brainwashed to believe that you can actually walk through walls and when you try to and end up bumping your nose against the wall you are told that you couldn't do it because you're not ready yet however there are more books and courses available that will someday make it possible for you to do so for larger amounts of money butt not really.
Scientology = manipulative corporate scam brainwashing moneybaggers club
Scientologist = manipulated misguided fool

I know someone who got sucked into Scientology, I didn't know he was a Scientologist until one day, about 4 years ago, he said "Rob here's a book you should read." He passed me Dianetics by L. Ron Hubbard. I laughed and said "L. Con Flubbfart ha forget it." For the first time in the years since I've known the guy he displayed anger and I'm talking very angry!!! Verbally with an agressive face.
After that display he went on to talk about the ability to walk through walls, he hasn't reached that level but he plans on getting there etc...
I've also heard of that course from an ex-Scientologist and neither of them know each other
Here's a website that describes some of the unusual deaths of Scientology members

Here's an interview with L. Ron. Hubbards' son

There must be 50 ways to leave your Scientology master
You just slip out the back, Jack

Just get yourself free
Hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee

Oy. Do we have the beginnings of a BKD already?


Asking Jennifer "I F***** John Mayer" Aniston for dating advice is a little like asking Scarlett Johansson for singing lessons, isn't it?


Bart Simpson promotes Scientology? Didn't he learn anything from that episode in which they saved Homer from worshipping a potato?


Bolshy great yarblockos, Mischa Barton! Horrorshow! Even my droogs wouldn't enjoy the old in-out, in-out with that malenky devotchka.


Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler off again. Off what? Meds? The wagon? (Please, God, let it be) life support?


"Brooke Hogan set to wrestle Rick Flair's son at Florida state fair?" Brooke's mom, more likely.

Agreed with the JEN dating advice. Since her most constant significant other is her dog, I think her problems go way beyond cherry tomatoes.

50 cent, that comment is worth a dollar at least! Don't sell yourself short. Fabulous!

Micky Rourke is not going to Wrestlemania afterall. I get the impression he was just talking big to impress the young chicks, like Evan. Amazingly, it worked. I'm still a bit nauseated from yesterdays snogging headline.

Why did Angelina wear her dress backwards? Probably for the same reason teenagers wear their sweatshirts inside-out. They are dirty and it extends the wear. Hard to get the laundry done when you're not in the same country for more than two days in a row....

Jennifer Aniston advises no cherry tomatoes on dates...Don't underestimate the wisdom of this advice. These are words to live by people!

Nancy Cartwright, "Eat my shorts!"

Any brain bleach left over from yesterday? Need it just seeing the headline about Whoopi and the racy PETA ad.

I think the American Cattle Ranchers Association ought to send a check to Whoopi for making vegetables completely unappetizing.


Really Jennifer Aniston, your dating advice would be 'no cherry tomatoes'? What about staying away from Vince Vaughn, or a certain star of Fight Club?


Oh Tony Romo, way to drop the ball. And dude, what's up with cheating on Jessica?

ScarJo, even if you were 10 years older, you're still not my type. Carpe diem already. Sheesh. These young people, wishing their lives away.

You know, the idea of a "Thriller" musical means that other "story" songs like "Movin' Out" and "Scenes from an Italian Restaurant" are next.

(Oh wait. Twyla. Right....)

Give Broadway time to catch up and we'll have "November Rain: The Musical" and "Meatloaf Presents: Paradise by the Dashboard Light."

I also just remembered "Barry Manilow's 'Copacabana,'" which did pretty well as a touring show and I think was in Vegas for a while.

So for those of you who couldn't get the Olivia Newton-John songs out of your head yesterday, I now give you, "Her name was Lola. She was a showgirl...." (Thank me later as you "meringue and do the cha-cha".)

You just know that some Broadway producer's intern is now watching tons of 80s videos and writing down story ideas. ("Hey boss, what about "Christmas Wrapping" by the Waitresses? We cast Mandy Moore as the girl and Justin Timberlake as that guy she's been chasing all year.")

Oh (I'll stop after this), and surely someone has to stage "Dan Fogelberg's Same Auld Lang Syne." Flashbacks! Snow turning to rain! Simple sets, too (I mean, the song takes place in a grocery store and a car.)

Every time I look at the front-page splash for Eye on Entertainment, I see Brad Pitt sneering at me. By contrast, Wee Tom actually looks good in the above shot.

And here's the Late Snark:

Angelina Jolie did not wear her dress backwards. She wore he dress exactly the right way to showcase her best assets: her t-a-t-s. She was hoping to buy an "i" but there was no extra silicone available.

ScarJo wishes she was 10 years older so that her recent Marilyn Monroe spread would have been more believable. You can bet that she would have worn Angie's gown differently.

Regarding Jennifer Aniston's advice: Didn't this tomato lose her cherry a long time ago?

Perhaps Mischa Barton can hook up with Tony Romo for a "little bit of the old ultra-violence."

Donny Osmond passes on DWTS? Why? Is he afraid that he can't rock a pair of dance tights? Perhaps he can borrow a cucumber from the PETA ad. I hear tell that Whoopi Goildberg has a special on cukes this week.

So Jake Gyllenhaal kicks a pap. Pap should be glad that Jake was re-enacting his Jarhead role, 'caaue this time Dennis Haysbert would have let him take the shot.

Advice to Brooke Hogan: there's always room for Jello.

What we now need is for a 2-second viral video of Dan Castellaneta shouting "STOOPID SCIENTOLOGISTS!!"

Finally, what is surprising about seeing Karissa and Kristina Shannon outside a medical marijuana store? they were getting ready to go home a blow a little dope.

Normally, I would say that I can't be mistaken for 17 anymore either. But, a nice old man at the bank today asked me if I was 16. I truly appreciated the compliment. The bank teller apologized for the old guy (trust me more was said, he was one of those flirtatious old guys). I told the teller it was fine, the old guy had earned the right to flirt with young ladies.

Back to topic, You Shook Me All Night Long would be good. I would like to see what they do with SuperFly.

Can you believe I was studying so hard, I missed the chat? And I have to say that I don't watch much TV, but I absolutely cannot stand Soledad O'Brian. She sounds like a Munchkin except a Munchkin would have something to say. During the Inauguration parade I wanted to throttle her. Didn't all those newscasters on CNN just talk WAY too much? We never got to even hear the music or anything except Soledad crooning in her cutesy voice..bleh.

Who's that terrible man on the Fox network morning show?

He's my choice for "worst".

Oh, and why isn't there a "MacArthur Park: The Musical"....sung entirely on harnesses, like the Cirque du Soleil.

Holy cow, what's happened to Cher? When I saw that picture of her on the WaPo front page, I thought it was Yoko Ono.

Too much cosmetic surgery, too much Botox, too much collagen... Plus, hair dyed jet-black on an older person is an unflattering look, incompatible with changing skin tones.

Anyone who tries to sing MacArthur must past the Richard Harris prerequisite: He or she must be stinking drunk. After singing it, he or she should then be trussed up in a harness and left out in the rain, like a wedding cake.

I missed the chat so just read the transcript, and I think the LiLo scary-skinniness is due to a return to coke. Known history of it, scary skinny pretty quickly, hangin' out with a known druggie (SamRo) ...

I am so sorry.

The good news is that there are BJs in North Carolina, so when you are on deployment in South Carolina, BJs are only one state away! Oh joy!

You know, I am pretty sure that I have never heard the song MacArther Park. I just looked up the lyrics and all I can say is, "huh?"

Mr. sunnydaze only goes to BJs about once a month, but he wishes he could go more often...

Oh, and I saw Cher perform in Las Vegas last Fall and she was fantastic. She can still sing, she can still dance; she can still support a giant headdress made of feathers and sparkly stuff. She made me laugh; she made me cry. I was probably the youngest person in the audience.

Folks, it's time to mark another Day on your calendar. In addition to BKD, we now have BJD.

Posted by: sasquatchbigfoot | January 29, 2009 5:05 PM | Report abuse

And I think we all agree that there should be more BJDs.

What could be better than coupons for BJs? The best coupon for BJs is the"Buy One, Get One Free" coupon. Some BJs will even through in a free tire rotation.

I'll be that Byoolin is sorry that he doesn't get coupons for BJs in the mail.

For those who can't get BJs at home, there are are BJs Vacations! I kid you not! If you're like some people and look forward to vacations for BJs, your ship has come in!
