Years and I mean years ago, I tried to choke through the book "dianetics" that i got through the mail (way,way pre internet). Every week in the mail came crap about buying some sort of "meter" and it was EXPENSIVE. I forget what use they were supposed to achieve, but I do remember price tags -300 - 2500 smackers - utter nonsense in my military day pay. After 2 or 3 chapters,I knew it was bullsh#t. I cannot believe anything about scientology to this day. My rant --over !!
