    I cannot even read that graffiti writing. Is it gang markings by any chance? :S
    Edit: kind of wish they wrote "all hail the almighty xenu" instead in very colourful letters.

    The video is from 2011, and they're missing the new condo.

    Well, they have 10 more days to get that Ideal Org open...

    Hmm. They did a new wish list set of renderings in May. They dropped the fancy dressup that annoyed the architectural purists. It seems more plausible than before. (Just not very likely.)

    And no matter what, there's those structure problems that the building has had since it was built.

    Ten days eh? It's not even gonna be done. :D

    Might as well (waste free time) putting up a small piece of cardboard on the woody part (or on the doors) saying "NEVER GONNA EVEN HAPPEN" and snap a photo of it. Discarded box flaps highly recommended and only take 30 seconds to rip/cut and write, then tape/staple/prop up.

    Extra points if they dispose of the cardboard 6 times in a row. Ideas ideas...

    They really believe that they can hold it up "with postulates". Well, here is what that kind of wishful thinking gets you:

    The architectural renderings of Ideal Orgs are booming explosively just like Scientology itself.

    Sadly, after accepting millions in 'donations', Scientology is expanding so fast, some of the buildings that were purchased for rehab into these renderings are now being sold off so that the 'Church' can look for even bigger buildings to handle all of the 'demand' for planetary clearing 'services'.

    I believe that, in Boston, Scientology has sold the 'new' Ideal Org. building for New England and the corresponding renderings as well as the regular Org. building and are currently in a small office building in the suburbs despite overwhelming 'demand' for services and raising millions over the past decade to renovate the now sold, rundown, old Alexandra Hotel.

    This will require more 'donations' for even bigger architectural renderings of bigger rundown buildings purchased in the future.
    DONATE NOW for even bigger architectural renderings of our next 10 year project that will be rendered moot due to explosive expansion and so on and so forth, Amen. LRH!

    Btw, GAT IV will blow you away when it's time to repurchase the updated GAT I, II and III volumes that will be out-Tech.

    Scientology: ''Everything old is new again at new and expanded pricing!''

    A less dishonest version would be, "Real soon now." and a truthful version would be, "We have no idea because it's just a real estate investment behind religious cloaking."

    It's one hell of a pointless investment considering it will only be sold off again and again, or abandoned if a vehicle crashes into it and damages it further.

    There's a slight glitch in GAT phase rollouts. Most of the clams have dropped out of doing The Basics let alone the few have started on the Glorious GAT II services and dropped out. I guess they figure that the quicker they re-do their Bridge and training, the quicker they have to re-do their Bridge and training. They can't roll out GAT III until GAT II is completed and the loyal members are eager and ready for the next greatest Tech Breakthrough from Glorious Leader COB. At this rate, GAT III won't be released until 2025. This will hit their income somewhat in the meantime and require extra donations from the whales to tide them over.

    Couple of snaps from Toronto. While the Peter Street "temporary" - more like "terminal" - bOrg is not in a bad place, I never saw a clam in the street. Loads of posters with volcanoes on them, but they're for a Pompei exhibition :).

    If I pass by the idle never being renovated morgue, i'll throw a sticker or something on the board. No writing/chalking due to it not being legal, unless it's on the sidewalk, that would be perfectly okay. ;)

    Photo Of The Day – Toronto Ideal Org | Sec Check

    The former Toronto Org building is officially planned as the future Toronto Ideal Org, but the building is continuing to decay. The rain is apparently being kept out with duct tape, the graffiti is covering more of the outside walls, and we think Scientology will eventually be forced to sell it rather than renovate it.

    Since I was passing it, the graffiti has been cleaned off multiple times over, and I hope some inspiring artists put up some anti-scientology art up there sometime during the night or something that won't get noticed until the next day.

    Looking at the facade below the windows, it looks like they've got a serious problem with water getting into the wall at several points. If it's not fixed soon, bricks will be falling on people's heads as they walk by.

    Are they trying for the 50's "held together with duct tape and baling wire" jalopy look?

    Ontario restructured their list of registered religious officials authorized to perform marriages in the province. They now list the religious affiliation.

    There are exactly five Scientolgists in Ontario allowed to perform weddings:
    No new ones, good. That would require charity status from the Canada Revenue Agency, which they didn't get in 1999. They managed to sneak a bunch in the 90s "because we're going to get charity status real soon and we'll sue if you don't!" Five aging old-timers.

    (To be honest, I don't care that much, but if my Wiccan friends can't then to heck with Scientology!)
