scientology

what do you think of scientology?

i've done a little bit of research for a school project, and gone to one of their meetings once (l. ron hubbard's birthday celebration!) out of curiosity, and it seemed very much like a business enterprise. everything about the meeting came down to 'we need your donations, NOW.' they came off as awfully greedy for a 'religion.'

what are your impressions?

Elizabeth Loftus

Can anyone direct me to a site that has a simple explanation about Elizabeth Loftus's various experiments, also including statistics?
The ones I'm really interested in are the "Lost in the Mall" one and the one where she showed college students a car accident...I've looked on google but I just find stuff about repressed memories and different articles. I need something that outlines the whole experiment.

I'm filling out job applications for retail-type places, and I'm wondering about my job history:

Should I put the jobs that I've had for less than 90 days on there? I've had several gaps in employment where I didn't work, plus I've had a few jobs that I ended up quitting after a very short period.

For example, this one application asks "List each company for whom you have worked". I never put the jobs I've had for a day or less, but what about the ones I've had for a month (or just less than 90 days)? I've never been fired, I just quit because of my low tolerance for people. I quit my last job a week ago and am just looking for a weekend job or something to pay for gas and my assorted bills while in school.

Almost 5 years ago I had the cartilage in my ears pierced at the mall because I didn't know better. They got infected something nasty, so I ended up taking the rings out a few months later & the swelling and such eventually went away where you'd never know they were pierced.
Well, yesterday, one of them started swelling a bit and today it's been hurting. Should I be concerned? Or should I just simply put some medicine on it as my mother suggested and not worry?

okay so i bought this antique jewelry box type thing... one of those boxes that look like miniature dressers... for my mother for christmas. I found it at a flea market, and its beautiful but the music box inside of it doesn't work. how would i go about getting it fixed? How much (estimate?) would it cost me?

My daughter once saw a t-shirt that looked the the classic Che Guevera shirt, except it was Cornelius from the original Planet of the Apes. I have looked everywhere I can think of online, does anyone know what I'm talking about and where I can find it?

Thanks!

has anybody ever been suspended (not as in kicked out of school, as in body modification)? i was wondering how a person decides he or she wants to be suspended. i know a couple guys who were recently suspended. one of them was doing a report on it for a class, and decided to get suspended so he could talk from a first-person point of view. i was just curious as to other reasons people might have for being suspended. i dont mean this in an "oh my god, why would you want to do that?" kind of way. it is genuine curiosity.
likewise, i believe there was a post on here not too terribly long ago about suspension. i tried looking back, but cant seem to find it. could someone possibly direct me to said post?

thanks in advance.

1. Does anyone here have asthma and uses the inhalers on a daily basis to control your asthma - ie: seravent & Qvar and uses sometimes the Albuterol? If so - do you ever get little black hairs on your chin and neck area? I think its the steroids in them that give me these. My Pulmonologist never heard of this, but I was wondering if anyone experienced this.

2. Does anyone get Geographic Tongue when you eat salty or spicy foods?
