“Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous. If a man really wants to make a million dollars, the best way to be to start his own religion.” – [attributed as words uttered on five separate occasions]

L. Ron (Lafayette Ronald) Hubbard (1911-1986 if you believe he is dead)… science fiction writer turned founder and cult leader of scientology. He also claimed he was a physicist but only took one year and received an F. In the US Navy, he was found to be “unsatisfactory for any assignment” and “not temperamentally fitted for independent command”.

If you are still a belieber… there’s Xenu, the alien ruler of the ‘galactic confederacy’ who brought millions of people to earth on DC-8-style space/aircraft… lined them up around volcanos and blew them to smitherines with hydrogen bombs. It is also claimed that their souls turned into space and body invaders clinging to the living and wreaking havoc and chaos in today’s world.

Almost sounds like the late great joseph smith who had the “the book of mormon – another testament of jesus christ dictated to him in a field by aliens from another planet… and… jesus is not dead. He lives on a planet somewhere outside our solar system… but in the 1800’s joseph smith didn’t know there was an end to our solar system.

 

Some people will just believe anything. I’m just sayin.

None of us can do everything, but I love knowing how to do a lot of things, and I love learning how to do new things. As I said before, I’m a generalist: I can fix my bicycle. I can change the oil in my motorcycle. I’ve helped put in a shower, as well as replace a roof and build a patio. When I was a kid, I worked summers on a family farm, driving tractors, baling hay, and feeding livestock. I’ve shot skeet, I’ve hunted, and I know how to disassemble and clean a gun.

At the same time, I’m not all gear-head. I also do various types of art — junk-sculpture, photography, painting — and I’ve had my work shown in small galleries and cafes. I got into journalism 22 years ago because I saw it as a chance to never stop learning. I’m paid to ask questions, to investigate things, and to tell other people about them. I’ve covered politics, crime, the arts, business, the law, and technology. I can write. I can edit. I can use my “people skills” to work a room or interview a person of note — say, Hollywood director John Waters. I went to night school and learned how to be a paralegal. I’ve been on numerous paranormal investigations. Occasionally I get on stage and perform, telling stories from my life that are part serious, part stand-up comedy.
