The church keeps Miscavige out of sight. If he were on Nighline or 60 Minutes; they would make minced meat out of him.

TimeandMaterials Re:the church is buying out the press run (353 comments)

::::so others cannot read it. that will cause a best-seller blip Does not make sense. The publisher will just print more. :::they we accused of buying and reselling Ron's books on a massive scale to get on the best-seller lists That is true and old news. Old story was that Barnes and Noble bought Dianetics. When the books arrived, it had the B&N sales sticker on them already. What happened? Church members would go and buy the books to boost the sales. For this book, that logic does not work, or make sense.

Elon Musk Offers Boeing SpaceX Batteries For the 787 Dreamliner

TimeandMaterials Won't work... (163 comments)

Great idea...but this won't work. A new battery would require some redesign. All of this would need FAA & EU (forget the agency name) approval. That would take at least 8-12 months. Boeing wants the 787 flying in weeks.

Book Review: Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief

TimeandMaterials Where are all the negative Amazon book reviews? (353 comments)

Take a peek at the Amazon.com page for this book, as of the morning of 29 JAN 13, there are 53 customer reviews, categorised as: 5 star - 42 4 star - 5 3 star - 1 2 star - 1 1 star – 4 In the ‘old days’, Scientology would have had all their people write 1-star reviews of this book. I think this does show that the power of Scientology, the same organization that brought the IRS to its knees, is waning. Maybe there are not that many blokes left there.

Book Review: Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief

TimeandMaterials Re:Bias (353 comments)

::One thing this review does give me is more appreciation for the skill and effort needed for writing book reviews. It's difficult to do well, and perhaps not everyone can do it. Agreed. But this is Slashdot, not the Economist, New Yorker...you know what I mean.

::It just seems like he didn't bother to proofread the review. He made a comment that it was rushed. But do agree that it is more important to focus on the message then the grammar, syntax, etc.
