2006 Darwin Awards

Filed under: General — gezi @ 10:11 am

I don’t know who collects all these stories of people receiving a Darwin Award, and I don’t even know if these stories are indeed factual – but they are good stories – and in my mind – credible.

So, here we go (thanks, Beverly for forwarding)…

Yes, it’s again that magical time of the year when the Darwin Awards are bestowed, honoring the least evolved among us.

Here is the glorious Winner:

1. When his 38-caliber revolver failed to fire at his intended victim during a hold-up in Long Beach, California, would-be robber James Elliot did something that can only inspire wonder. He peered down the barrel and tried the trigger again. This time it worked.

And now, the Honorable Mentions:

2. The chef at a hotel in Switzerland lost a finger in a meat-cutting machine and submitted a claim to his insurance company. The company expecting negligence sent out one of its men to have a look for himself. He tried the machine and he also lost a finger. The chef’s claim was approved.

3. A man who shoveled snow for an hour to clear a space for his car during a blizzard in Chicago returned with his vehicle to find a woman had taken the space. Understandably, he shot her.

4. After stopping for drinks at an illegal bar, a Zimbabwean bus driver found that the 20 mental patients he was supposed to be transporting from Harare to Bulawayo had escaped. Not wanting to admit his incompetence, the driver went to a nearby bus stop and offered everyone waiting there a free ride. He then delivered the passengers to the mental hospital, telling the staff that the patients were very excitable and prone to bizarre fantasies. The deception wasn’t discovered for 3 days.

5. An American teenager was in the hospital recovering from serious head wounds received from an incoming train. When asked how he received the injuries, the lad told police that he was simply trying to see how close he could get his head to a moving train before he was hit.

6. A man walked into a Louisiana Circle-K, put a $20 bill on the counter, and asked for change. When the clerk opened the cash drawer, the man pulled a gun and asked for all the cash in the register, which the clerk promptly provided. The man took the cash from the clerk and fled, leaving the $20 bill on the counter. The total amount of cash he got from the drawer: $15.
(If someone points a gun at you and gives you money, is a crime committed?)

7. Seems an Arkansas guy wanted some beer pretty badly. He decided that he’d just throw a cinderblock through a liquor store window, grab some booze, and run. So he lifted the cinderblock and heaved it over his head at the window. The cinderblock bounced back and hit the would-be thief on the head, knocking him unconscious. The liquor store window was made of Plexiglas. The whole event was caught on videotape.

8. As a female shopper exited a New York convenience store, a man grabbed her purse and ran. The clerk called 911 immediately, and the woman was able to give them a detailed description of the snatcher. Within minutes, the police apprehended the snatcher. They put him in the car and drove back to the store. The thief was then taken out of the car and told to stand there for a positive ID. To which he replied, “Yes, officer, that’s her. That’s the lady I stole the purse from.”

9. The Ann Arbor News crime column reported that a man walked into a Burger King in Ypsilanti, Michigan, at 5 a.m., flashed a gun, and demanded cash. The clerk turned him down because he said he couldn’t open the cash register without a food order. When the man ordered onion rings, the clerk said they weren’t available for breakfast. The man, frustrated, walked away.

******A 5-STAR STUPIDITY AWARD WINNER*****

10. When a man attempted to siphon gasoline from a motor home parked on a Seattle street, he got much more than he bargained for. Police arrived at the scene to find a very sick man curled up next to a motor home near spilled sewage. A police spokesman said that the man admitted to trying to steal gasoline and plugged his siphon hose into the motor home’s sewage tank by mistake. The owner of the vehicle declined to press charges, saying that it was the best laugh he’d ever had.

In the interest of bettering human kind please share these with your friends and family … Unless of course one of these 10 individuals by chance is a distant relative or long lost friend. In that case be glad they are distant and hope they remain lost.

Dear Rose

Filed under: General — gezi @ 12:39 am

I am so glad that the situation between us has been so nicely remedied.

You know, when I told you that I had been declared a ‘Suppressive Person’ by the Church of Scientology some 20 years ago and you in response to that ‘disconnected’ from me, in other word just cut all communication with me and thus with Zen, your student in preschool and kindergarten, who loves you dearly, I was first confused because I absolutely would not have expected that from you and then deeply disappointed.

From my experience I knew that many did disconnect – – but you?

I know that your situation was not an easy one – by a long-shot – and I appreciate that. I guess you had just decided to go back on OT 7 and it could be at least difficult with the current state of the church if you were connected to a person being declared a ‘suppressive person’ even though you knew that he was not. I know that you did not think so because we knew each other for many years had been talking plenty, had been camping together and – I think – liked each other.

I think you confirmed that in your report about me in which you said: “In summary, I highly recommend Gunter for any endeavor he may seek to pursue. He will be a valuable asset for any organization.” I still remember when I got a copy of this letter how warm and fuzzy I felt inside.

But then again, at this time you did not know that some people within the church had decided 20 years ago that I belonged to the 2.5% of anti-social persons. The reasoning and its application was – in my eyes – rather inventive when mapped against LHR policy, but you have already decided that all that is irrelevant for your evaluation.

I can only imagine that you stumbled over LRH’s great 1961 article ‘Personal Integrity’ in the magazine Ability:

WHAT IS TRUE FOR YOU is what you have observed yourself
And when you lose that you have lost everything.

What is personal integrity?
Personal integrity is knowing what you know—
What you know is what you know—
And to have the courage to know and say what you have observed.
And that is integrity
And there is no other integrity.

I mean this is brutal, isn’t it? You probably read this and realized what it really means – ‘when you lose that you have lost everything.’ And that there is no other integrity.

This is nearly as if we don’t have free choice, right? I know you wanted to go back on OT 7 and that might have caused you to drop me like a hot potato and I totally understand this. I had paid up to OT 3 when I came over here and wanted to do this before I joined the Sea Org, and then there was suddenly the requirement of some more sec checks that I did not have the money for – that was disappointing – for sec checks!

But I’m glad that you have seen that there is no OT 7 if you break your personal integrity. I mean you can certainly go through the motions, but we both now what’s that worth.

Other big point to consider is you son in the Sea Org. Could be outright dangerous if you would stand up for what you know to be true if it conflicts with church doctrine. But here again, if LRH is right – and I believe he is – if you break your own knowingness ‘you have lost everything.’

So that you have given yourself a push and stood up for what you know to be right gave me back that warm and fuzzy feeling I mentioned earlier. I know that you can reach everything with that kind of attitude. Especially as there is no scarcity in this world. Nobody can take or keep away anything from you – except you yourself. And you have already decided that you are not going to do that!

Just as a little hint that you are completely on policy with what you are doing this one piece of information might be helpful:

HCOPL of 15 Nov 1968

CANCELLATION OF DISCONNECTION

Because we can now handle all types of cases disconnection as a condition is canceled.

L. RON HUBBARD
FOUNDER

Just make sure that this PL is still in the books. It was before LRH left the game.

You know, Rose, the last time we talked on the phone when you told me that you would be disconnecting you also advised me that I should not give up handling my cycle with the CofS. I took your advise to heart and after realizing that the church is not one faceless entity but is made up of its members I decided to work on the one terminal where I would expect the biggest possibility of success.

And that was you. So I kept on postulating and visualizing that you would find something that would turn you back into the person I know and respect. I am so glad that I succeeded in that.

Much Love,
G

I Still Remember Those Cars

Filed under: General — gezi @ 2:06 am

Ran into this great image the other day and thought that I share.

gogo

And believe it or not, I still remember seeing those cars but I have to admit that I never owned one. Probably never wanted one because they were just not cool. I also hardly believe that this lady in this picture would really appreciate forcing herself – and that huge bag – into this car.

It took a while, but now I think my built-in databank clerk came up with the name for this automobile: Gogo! Never realized back in Germany that this is actually English.
