    Alex Jones

    I live and work in Austin and I met Alex Jones one time. This was mid-late nineties, before he was really "known" and I assume shortly after he started up his public access show here. I was at a Hot Rod show waiting for my buddies, and this guy comes out and asks me for a light. I tell him...

    The Cultish World Of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

    The point is, that christianity started out as an offshoot of judaism, much like the Branch Davidians, Jehova's Witnesses, Mormons, Moonies, or most any other cult today did from christianity.

    That would make christianity a cult (jesus being the leader/higher being), and most christians would label anything but themselves a cult. by the way, Waco is about 100 miles from here.

    What's the difference between a religion and a cult anyway?

    god?

    I wasn't sure for a long time, then God and I had a talk and he told me he wasn't real.

    Strange Folk

    'Assume the position' means to put your hands against the wall and spread your legs, so the cops can frisk you.

    Strange Folk

    Once while driving down the street here in Austin, TX, I passed a Short Stop (burger joint), and in the parking lot in broad daylight there were 10-12 "little people" assuming 'the position' around a car, no cops in sight. I couldn't tell if they were children, or dwarves, or what. We circled...
