South Park Explains Scientology

I thought I might as well just post the actual explanation clip for those of you who don't want to watch the entire episode or who don't like the potty mouth.

FYI: Beliefs of various cults

1) Regarding Scientology: Tommy indicated that he does not know much about Scientology. One can easily find info about Scientology online. However, if you have about 20 minutes to kill, there is an infamous/famous episode of South Park explains WHAT SCIENTOLOGISTS ACTUALLY BELIEVE. Click here for the video (requires flash).

WARNING: The characters in South Park use bad language. I do not endorse bad language BUT I did find this particular episode funny.

2) Regarding Mormonism: Here is a video explaining what Mormons believe. Nickolas, you can tell me if it's correct. And here is South Park's explanation of Joseph Smith's origins. This is just a clip, not a whole episode. Dum dum dum dum dum.

3) On an unrelated note (not meant to be humorous), Evan's brother is at Silver City.

For Mok-san (and Evan too)


Look familiar? Found these on a site selling specialized fx contact lenses for Hollywood. How much does it cost to look like an Uchiha?
Sharingan eyes go for $259 a pop, jutsu not included. Of course I don't think these contacts were designed specifically with third stage sharingan in mind. And I didn't see any kaleidoscope eyes.

Something by Bertrand Russell which I enjoyed (well, not entirely)

HOW TO BECOME A MAN OF GENIUS

Bertrand Russell

If there are among my readers any young men or women who aspire to become leaders of thought in their generation, I hope they will avoid certain errors into which I fell in youth for want of good advice. When I wished to form an opinion upon a subject, I used to study it, weigh the arguments on different sides, and attempt to reach a balanced conclusion. I have since discovered that this is not the way to do things. A man of genius knows it all without the need of study; his opinions are pontifical and depend for their persuasiveness upon literary style rather than argument. It is necessary to be one-sided, since this facilitates the vehemence that is considered a proof of strength. It is essential to appeal to prejudices and passions of which men have begun to feel ashamed and to do this in the name of some new ineffable ethic. It is well to decry the slow and pettifogging minds which require evidence in order to reach conclusions. Above all, whatever is most ancient should be dished up as the very latest thing.

There is no novelty in this recipe for genius; it was practised by Carlyle in the time of our grandfathers, and by Nietzsche in the time of our fathers, and it has been practised in our own time by D. H. Lawrence. Lawrence is considered by his disciples to have enunciated all sorts of new wisdom about the relations of men and women; in actual fact he has gone back to advocating the domination of the male which one associates with the cave dwellers. Woman exists, in his philosophy, only as something soft and fat to rest the hero when he returns from his labours. Civilised societies have been learning to see something more than this in women; Lawrence will have nothing of civilisation. He scours the world for what is ancient and dark and loves the traces of Aztec cruelty in Mexico. Young men, who had been learning to behave, naturally read him with delight and go round practising cave-man stuff so far as the usages of polite society will permit.

One of the most important elements of success in becoming a man of genius is to learn the art of denunciation. You must always denounce in such a way that your reader thinks that it is the other fellow who is being denounced and not himself; in that case he will be impressed by your noble scorn, whereas if he thinks that it is himself that you are denouncing, he will consider that you are guilty of ill-bred peevishness. Carlyle remarked: ``The population of England is twenty millions, mostly fools.'' Everybody who read this considered himself one of the exceptions, and therefore enjoyed the remark. You must not denounce well-defined classes, such as persons with more than a certain income, inhabitants of a certain area, or believers in some definite creed; for if you do this, some readers will know that your invective is directed against them. You must denounce persons whose emotions are atrophied, persons to whom only plodding study can reveal the truth, for we all know that these are other people, and we shall therefore view with sympathy your powerful diagnosis of the evils of the age.

Ignore fact and reason, live entirely in the world of your own fantastic and myth-producing passions; do this whole-heartedly and with conviction, and you will become one of the prophets of your age.

Scientology will KILL YOU (in addition to having stupid beliefs)

If you know any Scientologists or have even heard of the religion, watch this video.

Isn't this sweet? Courtesy of Reuters.
Notice the way this is being portrayed as Israel vs. Lebanon NOT Israel vs. Hezbollah Islamic Terrorist.

Why the content on this blog has been a waste of your time...

...if you come here everyday and are yearning for new content created by me. I have posted a few videos to entertain you during this content durth. I haven't put up any new pictures because I am waiting for my new 400 GB external hard drive to arrive so I will have space to download pictures from my camera onto my hard drive, which is more full than a member of Overeaters Annonymous after a 23 plate binge at HomeTown Buffet.

I also am getting a new memory card to replace the one that was lost at the end of last term. Tommy will be interested in this, the rest of you won't: It's a 2 GB Extreme IV! Now I can take an even larger number of pictures at events. Hahaha.

So while anticipating the new, content yourself with the old and the filler videos I post. Hope you all are well and I look forward to seeing all you TACers in less than a week.

Hear the one about the doctered photos?

Nice video explaining the Reuters photo fraud...click here.

Funny

When Chuck Norris plays Oregon Trail, his family does not die from cholera or dysentery, but rather, roundhouse kicks to the face. He also requires no wagon, since he carries the oxen, axels, and buffalo meat on his back. He always makes it to Oregon before you.
