The Freewinds Are Carcinogenic

Tags: Freewinds, Scientology, blue, asbestos, Curacao, CDM, Tom Cruise (all tags)

Dry dock workers of the Curacao Dry Dock Company (CDM) discovered dangerous levels of blue asbestos while conducting routine repairs on the Freewinds, flagship of the Church of Scientology's Sea Org and home to the Flag Ship Service Organization (FSSO). Scientologists like John Travolta and Tom Cruise attended several events and religious get-aways aboard the luxury cruise liner and subsequentally were potentially exposed to the deadly carcinogen.

Worse yet, an affidavit signed in 2001 alleging the presence of blue asbestos has surfaced. In it, Lawrence Woodcraft describes encountering "a powdery blue fibrous substance" he identified as asbestos on the ship early 1987. Thousands of tweenage girls the world over are expressing their outrage over the potential threat to their #1 crush by pre-ordering Battletoads this Saturday, May 10th.

Elron never said asbestos was harmful! Why remove it? Why, in fact, not add more? Lovely, fresh-smelling healthful asbestos dust. They could sprinkle it around on the carpets for freshness, and fire resistance.

I have some pretty nice in-kind donations sitting in the fume hood. I'd be more than happy to donate them, provided it stays at least 500 miles downwind of me or anyone I care about.

There is a reason for everything. Sometimes, that reason just sucks.

yeah raids were fail this month (none / 0) (#30)
by LilDebbie on Wed May 14, 2008 at 07:39:16 PM EST

combination of finals keeping a lot of the students away thus depressing our numbers combined with packer leaving scientology, which is win but overshadows teh raidz.

the good news is the raids are getting more sophisticated the world over. britfags have a mobile billboard then drive through london, we had printed balloons to hand out to teh kiddies (ror) and finally a mnfag flag. that and flash raids are happening damn near weekly now. the juggernaut is building momentum. sea arrrgh vs sea org should be fucking tits.

and maybe, just maybe, the weather won't suck this time around. i swear the scilons have weather machines.

Big defection three days ago (none / 1) (#27)
by anaesthetica on Fri May 09, 2008 at 11:34:20 PM EST

Lawrence Brennan, one of the Church of Scientology's top legal counsels, left the organization.  He filed an affidavit detailing how the Church sought for and achieved their religious tax-exempt status in order to protect themselves from government oversight.

Also: digg it, you failfucks.

The affidavit is pure gold.
