Church of Scientology Flips the Switch on 185,000-Square-Foot Dissemination and Distribution Center

    Scientology is rolling out their press release for their printing/fabrication planet and warehouse for all the stuff that they shove down the throats of lesser Scientology organizations and then charge them for the experience.

    scientologynews.org/press-releases/dissemination-and-distribution-center.html (CoS site!)
    It's well-worth proxying-up to watch the video. It's obviously a Golden Era, made-so-Davie-won't-hit-us production, full of bombast and stats that so badly need a sanity check. Anyone not suffering from the mind-fuck will probably find it hilarious.

    No question the place is impressive, but talk about insane overcapacity! One of the stats was that they can fab all the junk required for a new Idle Org every 10 days. Ummmm, hello...? CoS can't even buy buildings that fast (let alone keep them). Hasn't Davie heard of Just In Time (JIT) manufacturing? If they ran this place near capacity, they could build Idle Orgs every 10 days out of the piles of books.

    Scientology is the fastest growing exaggeration in the world!
  4. If its true for you...
  5. DeathHamster Member

    Maybe Davie is going to ditch the Scientology angle and go into business competing with Cafe Press?

    alright, just saw video, impressive. i just fell bad for the building and what might become of it once scientology has been taken down for good
  7. DeathHamster Member

    As I said, go into competition with Cafe Press printing books, t-shirts, uniforms, posters, banners, etc, on demand. The problem would be building up enough demand to even meet costs even drawing on the whole Internet across the world.

    I was watching the people on the second viewing (downloaded it), and I noticed that a lot of the shots show the same people operating different equipment or doing different tasks. Lack of photogenic Sea Org or horribly understaffed? (I also wonder if the guy in the USPS shirt was really USPS. Doubt it.) Notice how all the outside views on the building are really CGI?

    Favorite silly stat (1:54): This machine prints enough posters in one hour to reach every subway station of every major city of Earth. (And what will that machine do for the rest of the year? ROFL! )

    Don't they believe in safety goggles and gloves?

    I approve of the Scientology enterprise sinking tens of millions of dollars into a dying technology.

    The corporation spends millions in publishing costs, while Anonymous can spread the truth about
    Scientology's criminal and abusive nature at almost no cost at all.

    Employees working at a business then, right? At minimum wage, etc...

    All that printing and fabrication under software control, probably from Gold, over the Internet. What could go wrong?

    One hour of printing these posters:

    so anywho, does anyone know the address to this place?

    ...to meet the unprecedented demand for the services and humanitarian programs of the fastest-growing religion on Earth.

    Unprecedented demand? I think a couple of guys on a market stall could meet the demand for Hubbard's 'humanitarian' programmes for the whole world.

    Probably other threads here, too lazy to look.

    Just the two. :)

    Umm. Equals $96,081.44 per month rent. (Not sure what triple net basis is.)

    That's a lot of books that they'll have to push on members and orgs to cover. It's interesting that they didn't find a place that they could buy outright.

    TRIPLE NET LEASE
    tableDivider.gif The lessee, in addition to rent, assumes payment for all expenses associated with the operation of a property, including fixed expenses (such as taxes and insurance) and operating expenses (such as maintenance and repair). Thus, the lessee pays rent, fixed expenses and operating expenses.

    Why would they want to own it? It's a disposable false stat to keep donation pressures up. If TC throws $2M at this, it could run for a year doing nothing.
  26. DeathHamster Member

    For taxes, they'll probably try the religious angle.
    Do any CoS buildings carry insurance?
  27. Anonymous Member

    In a lease you have to have insurance.
  28. adhocrat Member

    I got out before the IRS gave CoS a tax exemption, but our lease was $2K a month for the rent and $2K a month for the taxes.
  29. Anonymous Member

    Was the insurance included in the Lease?

    a Hey DM a Kindle never killed anyone

    they still have a segway web site..
  38. Anonymous Member

    This site does not allow posters to promote illegal activity.
    So please take a second to figure out what I'm not saying.
  39. xenubarb Member

    Oh, now. Perhaps you misinterpreted "what could go wrong?"

    A printing palace staffed by sleep deprived Scientology slaves...sounds perfectly safe to me! Scientologists never make mistakes. They never get electrocuted in underground vaults, or fall off of things and die, or get sucked into the bookbinding machinery to come out as the first rather gooey copy of Dianetics to be bound in human skin.

    Never happens, ever! The tech guarantees it!
  40. DeathHamster Member

    Bah! I complain that the Toronto org has rooms stacked full of piles of 30 year-old dry paper, but that doesn't mean that I'm advocating or promoting illegal activity.
