So, I enjoy browsing deal a day sites similar to woot and the website DealSucker has a big self-updating list of such sites. Even though I never buy anything, I always cruise through just to see what's going on. Today, a new site has been added to the list. I feel a bit floored by it actually. What is it? Foreclosure of the Day! Like, house foreclosures! They have a price tag of $4 for today's house in Gilroy, California, home of the Garlic Festival! How exciting! Only, once you get over being dazzled by the low low price, you read on to see that they're offering you only A) Information on the house and B) Special software so you can become a 1337 property investor/house flipper like they are. Oh boy oh boy! I can't wait!

Ok, so it's one thing to say "Yo, I just got declared SP by Scientology!" But it's another thing to show it. So here's a scan of my letter to show you how crazy these people really are! There go my chances of joining Tom Cruise's harem. Damn!

Back when Anonymous got pissed at Scientology and Project Chanology was born, I had signed up for the Enturbulation forum with a super secret email address and actually considered going out to protest. I posted in a few threads. I even drove past our local Scientology center! It hides behind a dentist office near a storage center. You'd never know that a den of evil lurks there, unless you think dentists are evil. And ironically enough, Scientology actually preys on dentists, so it makes a freaky sort of sense.

Anyway, I have a super secret forum account leading to super secret email account created just for the occasion with no connection to me. I drove by the den of evil once and I still had my Rhode Island plates at the time. And somehow, some strange way, over a year after my complete lack of involvement, I ended up with a letter in the mailbox telling me I'm a suppressive person. Wat? Fucking looney bin nutballs.

Bwa ha ha hah! You know how sometimes, you see a few tidbits that just tell you you HAVE to watch a movie? Yeah, that's me right now. Dean Cain in a movie called Dragon Fighter. Sounds bad doesn't it? Oh trust me, it is!

Entirely too long BAD movie summary )

I ended up reading an agony aunt column and found this question...which just amuses me terribly:

Prejudice Against Cartoons?

DEAR MARGO: I am a 20-year-old college student and an anime fan in a relatively conservative household. My family is intolerant of other cultures. Here's how my family sees my hobby: "Japanese b.s." Here is the crux of my problem: I had decided to save money for some anime that was only available online. I had the money in my hand, which was a gift from this Christmas. When my parents found out, they refused to allow me to purchase the products because I am "becoming un-American." (I should note at this point that I am a dependent because I am a full-time student.) I would like to know what I should do to let them know I am not un-American.


DEAR TRY: Try making your case this way: The word "anime" comes from animation, which was, of course, perfected by ... Walt Disney, great American! Though anime was popularized in Japan, computerization is key, not Japanese culture. As for your parents' bias, you might tell them your interest in this is no more disloyal to America than driving a Toyota, eating French cheese or wearing Italian shoes. Tell them you are in favor of a global economy and they should applaud your embracing all of mankind. (I don't know that you can re-educate them, but I gave it my best shot.)



Dude! You have to write in to a newspaper column to figure out how to put your big kid pants on and buy some anime? *shakes head* So sad, so sad, no wonder otaku are always given a bad name.

Dark and I were discussing the Scientology protests yesterday and she asked what Scientology's deal was with their war on Psychiatryy. In a Time article I read, it says that psychiatry is one of Scientology's biggest competitors and they've set up a front group to go to war with psychiatry and discredit various psychiatrists and drug makers who produce anti-depressants. They call themselves "psychbusters" and they're actually responsible for hurting the sales of Prozac at some point in the late 80s/early 90s. Essentially, they're trying to replace medicine with their googly moogly. After all, why let their members pay a doctor for treatment when they can siphon off that money into their own pockets?

Now, it's not enough that I just say this and quote a Times article. Let's hear it from the horse's mouth: Scientology Leader David Miscavige Explains COS Plans To “Obliterate” Psychiatry. Here we have the head of Scientology spewing out his plans of war with Psychiatrists and an auditorium full of people cheering and eating it up. The speech is littered with Scientology speak and at first I wondered if I was even listening to English. I have to wonder how anyone can keep a straight face while going on about "LRH Technologies". It really is crazy talk on the grandest of scales. Ah Scientology, how you never cease to bring the WTF.
