    Default Don't call it a cult...

    ..call it brainwashing. Say what you want about Scientology, the "fair game" mudflinging is low.

    Think about it

    Could anyone sum up what this thread is about? I don't have enough time to watch the whole clip.

    Not that I care much about Scientology either way. I watched the first seconds of the clip and can only say that anyone who wants to look un-sinister had best avoid black suits, white shirts, and dark sunglasses. That's all. Still, probably all just a question of taste.

    Uh -- you really think so? I mean -- does it always make a sinister impression? Don't you think it can make you look "cool" in a "Matrix" way? Nobody ever said that to me (not that I ever dress like that or anything -- )

    On Scientology, Hubbard has been typed as LIE. So I think you should all listen to it. It had to be based.

    I guess a black suit, white shirt and dark glasses together with short hair can make you look sort of 'Matrix' cool. Could depend on a number of things - your face, the way you talk and move, the situation etc. The angry bloke looking like a bodyguard at the beginning of the clip did certainly not look cool to me, but scary. So if I were running an organisation that tries to shed its sinister image I would certainly not have any of my employees behave or look like that.

    Thank you, but my whole post above was meant as a joke (which obviously fell flat, as they tend to).

    No it didn't. I found it amusing. A call to absurdity in thinking.

    Makes you appreciate Mormons, though, doesn't it?
