Doc-the-guy-with-many-names sez:
 
 Yeah, the guy looks for excuses to get pissed off. 
 All because of a woman who dumped him. What a life. 
 FFL is part of Barry's emotional pornography.

Even if what Jim-Doc projects onto me were true
(it's not), it would be better than what he calls
*his* life. 

First, let's not forget that back during the now-
sorely-missed-posting-limits days, he was the person
who went over the posting limit more than anyone else
on this forum, even more than Judy (she was in second
place, trailing as I remember by only one instance),
and thus had to spend the most time sitting on the
I-ain't-got-no-self-control bench. Now he's defend-
ing others for having as little self control as he 
has and attacking those who point it out. No surprise 
there.

Second, let's not forget that this is the guy who 
claims to be fully enlightened, and yet the *only*
way he can get people on this forum to pay any 
attention to him (hint: what he really seeks) is
to pile on to the common enemies of a bunch of
mean girls and rag on the same people they hate,
in hopes that they'll accept him as one of them. 
Now THAT is pathetic. 

I'm just sayin' that this issue is NOT about censor-
ship vs. non. It's about a small group of people who
are so lonely and so starved for attention that they
spend most of their time posting to a bunch of strangers
on the Internet they've never met, desperately trying
to flood them with Pay attention to me...PLEASE posts.

What perpetuates the terrible situation they've created
here **IS** paying attention to them. Stop, and they'll
dry up and blow away like the nonentities they are.

Doc (really Jim Flanegin) sez:
 
 I hope *that woman* who dumped you, so long ago, is 
 aware of what she has created, and God help you, Barry.

I think this is worth commenting on, not because it's
either true or because it stung me as he hoped it 
would, but because this is pretty much Classic Jim. 
He does the very thing he accuses me of, and makes
things up.

He *is*, after all, the guy who makes up stories about
his own supposed enlightenment. I don't think there 
is a single person on this forum who *believes* any
of these stories, especially given *his* frequent fits
of rage and jealousy and lashing out, but he keeps 
doing it, IMO for a number of reasons.

First, and worthy of some compassion, he's recently
retired and ain't gettin' no attention from real 
people in his real life any more, so he has to troll
for it here and on Batgap. There, because those people
will believe *anything*, he might have a few suckers
who actually believe his made-up stories about his
own supposed enlightenment and how oh-so-superior
that makes him to anyone who...uh...isn't him. But
here, not so much. Most people just laugh at him,
and avoid confronting him over his obvious lies, 
because he has a tendency to lash out and hold 
grudges when anyone does. 

Second, he's just not very *good* at making things 
up. His tales of the enlightened life ring about
as true as they would if they were told by Dick 
Cheney. 

I feel for him, and for anyone desperate enough for
attention to feel they *have* to make up stories 
about being enlightened to get any, so I've laid 
off of him lately. But I figured it was about time
to poke him again so that he'll reveal his true
colors for a few newbs who don't know who and what
they're dealing with. Suffice it to say *how* he 
reacts to this poking will say far more about his 
supposed enlightenment than any of his words will. 

As for our relative contributions to this forum,
well, I am the first to admit that I just use it
as a place to write hopefully amusing stories about
my real life. That life may *be* pretty boring to
many people, and that's understandable because a
lot of what I do involves just sitting in cafes
and writing. True, the cafes may be in Paris and
Amsterdam and Leiden and the south of France, but
I *am* sitting there and writing, so my stories
are actually true. 

If there is anyone here who believes that *Jim's*
stories about his supposed enlightenment are 
true, speak up now or forever hold your peace.

The 5th poster was me, Share. I sent Barry a post, given his penchant for 
finding situations that make him unhappy, that I wouldn't be surprised if he 
visited subway stations at random, just for the delicious indignity of being 
jostled, shoved, and having hot liquids spilled on him.

For some reason, he didn't find it funny, as it was my only comment at the

Followup. Since I made this post, the same 5 people
whom I characterized as having nothing interesting
to say and as being so out of control that they 
flood the forum with their garbage have followed up
on my *single* post with a total of *fifteen* posts.

In not one of them did any of them offer to cut down
on their inane post-flooding. In fact, they attempted
to shoot the messenger and avoid any responsibility
for their own actions. I'd say that they made my point
about trying to dominate the forum for me.

The bottom line on this is clear -- these five posters
contributed only slightly less that HALF THE TOTAL
POSTS MADE LAST WEEK. And they'll do it again this
week, and the next, and the week after that. And they 
don't think there's a problem with that, or with forcing
other people to wade through their crap.

I'm simply making the point that the phenomenon of 
people leaving FFL is **NOT** due to Neo, but to a 
few people who simply cannot control their motormouths,
and who feel they have the right to subject other
people to post after post after post after post after
post...whatever they want to post, whenever they want
to post it. 

I'll stop talking about this now, because unlike them

Re I also used EFT tapping to deal with cookie cravings :   

Share, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) IS PRECISELY MAGICK in Crowley's

Look, you want to achieve some result (say, to stop gorging on cookies). You 
decide on some ritual (it's arbitrary what you choose - you could have decided 
to recite backwards the first paragraph of George W. Bush's memoir while 
standing on your head, but let's say you choose the EFT technique) and you say 
to yourself: Performing *this* ritual IS EQUIVALENT TO stopping my craving for 
cookies. You do the ritual (in your case the EFT routine) and your 
subconscious (which ignores surface, conscious rationalisation which is 
thinking: what the fuck am I doing this idiotic rigmarole for?) automatically 
follows through. The ritual means: I don't want cookies; and afterwards 
abracadabra you don't want cookies! It is so simple that people naturally 
dismiss it out of hand as worthless. Those who have actually tried it (like 
you!) found that it is effective.

Re Steve Sundur's  Hey Judy, sorry for any nastiness. Seraphita's analysis of 
the book touched on some of the reasons I did like the book.  Addiction issues 
have always been of interest to me . . . when the discussion of this book came 
up before, many years ago, I was more confident that the modality put forth in 
the book could be effective.:

If we are still talking about Crowley's Diary of a Drug Fiend, I mentioned 
above that he himself never lost his heroin habit. The drug was prescribed for 
his asthma so maybe he never had a fighting chance to stay clean. 

Curiously, I used the Beast's ideas when I quit smoking. The gist of Crowley's 
thinking here is that when a man (say) decides to stop a drug habit (let's say 
smoking) his surface consciousness comes up with lots of reasons - my clothes 
stink/it's an expensive habit/I'm coughing up phlegm/ . . . - but his deeper 
nature (his True Will) is actually rather keen on puffing away. The man has set 
up an uneven contest that he's destined to lose.

When I stopped smoking I did two things. First I decided to only stop for a 
week. That way it couldn't be any worse than having a dose of flu and there 
wouldn't be that nagging, horrid thought I will never again know the pleasure 
of inhaling on a cigarette. Secondly, as I've always been inordinately curious 
about whatever takes my fancy doesn't that suggest inordinate curiosity is part 
of my True Will? So I thought, I'll treat the experience of going cold turkey 
as if I'd just ingested a novel, experimental drug and I had to keep track and 
report back on what the effects were. In other words, I made the quitting into 
a game - and a game that would just be a short, sharp shock. At the end of the 
week I'd (more-or-less) sailed through the adventure and I knew I'd never smoke 
a cigarette again. Hey, maybe I should set up shop as an addiction counsellor!

federal employees( guards, janitors, etc.) that aren't. For months now, Obama 
has been giving exemptions to numerous big businesses, follow the

out as well and that Obamacare is hurting jobs. He's picking and choosing, who 
is and is not, exempt at this time. Not sure if that's exactly legal. Since 
when does someone get to pick and choose who is obligated to follow a law now

Rtam (Ritam) is cognate with the English word rhythm and
contains the meaning of universal order.

Since mrta means death - a-mrta (amrita) means deathless.
You can repeat it all you want, contemplate it in sanyama or whatever
and you will not become immortal.

These words are not forms of each other.

Ritam prajna

The phrase 'rtam' is related to the 'amrita' mentioned in chapter
17-19 of Mbh - the 'churning of the milk ocean'. According to MMY
'rtamrita' is produced in the human gut during the practice of TM
- otherwise called Soma in the Rig Veda.

The most popular version of the Indian myth 'Churning the milk
Ocean' is found in the Eighth Canto of the Bhagavata Purana. In
Buddhist mythology, Amrita is the drink of the gods, which grants

Rtam (Ritam) is cognate with the English word rhythm and
contains the meaning of universal order.  

Since mrta means death - a-mrta (amrita)
  means deathless. 
You can repeat it all you want, contemplate it in sanyama or whatever
and you will not become immortal. 



These words are not forms of each other.

Ritam prajna
The phrase 'rtam' is related to the 'amrita' mentioned in chapter 17-19 of Mbh 
- the 'churning of the milk ocean'. According to MMY 'rtamrita' is produced in 
the human gut during the practice of TM - otherwise called Soma in the Rig Veda.

The most popular version
of the Indian myth
'Churning the milk
Ocean' is found in the
Eighth Canto of the
Bhagavata Purana. In
Buddhist mythology,
Amrita is the drink of
the gods, which grants
them immortality.

Thank you for this inspiring alert about Mother Divine attempting to weasel 
their way into other Vedic organizations, but I assure you the association will 
not last long. 

When WAVES finds out how absurdly arrogant these people are, particularly when 
they discover the insistence on everything being Marshy Vedic this and that, 
and that ONLY the TMO and all its branches have a lock on REAL Vedic knowledge, 
the WAVES will part company with the TMO forthwith. 

I quote the WAVES purpose WAVES is a non-religious society with no ideology. 
whereas the TMO is a Marshy Hindu religious organization with a hell of an 
agenda, to wit, that everyone bow to the Movement and credit it with whatever 
good happens in the world including the non-existent world peace and salvation 
the world was promised but never received.

 You think free to. Others here think have to.
 
 It's a matter of signal-to-noise ratios. Taking last
 Friday's Post Count as an example, there are more 
 than a few on the forum who would categorize 421 
 of the total 852 posts (49.4%) as noise. 
 
 That is, long experience has taught these people 
 that there is nothing to be gained from reading 
 any of these posts. Fortunately, as you say, we are 
 free to disregard them by scrolling past them.
 
 But this means that in any given week we have to 
 scroll past easily half of all posts on the forum. 
 There comes a time when the desire for the occasional 
 gem of intelligence (signal) simply isn't worth it 
 any more because of the sheer bulk of the other posts 
 (noise). 
 
 Especially because the noise-posters don't seem to 
 be able (or willing) to control themselves. When 
 it's not invective and trolling, it's inanity such

Followup. Since I made this post, the same 5 people whom I 
characterized as having nothing interesting to say and as being so 
out of control that they flood the forum with their garbage have 
followed up on my *single* post with a total of *fifteen* posts. In 
not one of them did any of them offer to cut down on their inane 
post-flooding. In fact, they attempted to shoot the messenger and 
avoid any responsibility for their own actions. I'd say that they 
made my point about trying to dominate the forum for me. The bottom 
line on this is clear -- these five posters contributed only 
slightly less that HALF THE TOTAL POSTS MADE LAST WEEK. And they'll 
do it again this week, and the next, and the week after that. And 
they don't think there's a problem with that, or with forcing other 
people to wade through their crap. I'm simply making the point that 
the phenomenon of people leaving FFL is **NOT** due to Neo, but to 
a few people who simply cannot control their motormouths, and who 
feel they have the right to subject other people to post after post 
after post after post after post...whatever they want to post, 
whenever they want to post it. I'll stop talking about this now, 
because unlike them *I* can control myself. --- In

 Re Well  I'll be darned! So EFT is magic - who would-a thunk
 it. Here in the  states, EFT is being used by a number of
 different clinics and programs  treating vets with PTSD. :
 EFT does definitely work in some  cases and yet the
 *explanation* of why it works given by its own  practitioners -
 meridian lines in the body, etc. - would be treated with
 derision by scientists. Here's another example: here in the
 UK you can  get homeopathic treatment on the National
 Health Service. If homeopathy  works (does it? I don't know)
 how could you explain that success in  conventional scientific
 terms? It can't be done. If magicians are onto  something (as
 opposed to on something!) their explanation fits in both
 cases. The practitioners of homeopathy and EFT are
 unknowingly  imitating what occultists claim is a reliable
 technique. As I say, I'm  not an occultist but it's an intriguing
 idea, no? And the proof of the  pudding is in the eating.

The link you propose between such techniques and occult
or magickal practices is probably valid, if for no other reason
the all-important placebo effect.

It's growing stronger by the day, which is causing no end of
consternation to doctors and pharmaceutical companies.
They are literally unable to replicate the results of studies
that seemed clear-cut in the past, some of them for drugs
that are now approved and prescribed daily. In the old tests,
these drugs vastly outperformed the placebos; in the newer
tests, they can't. The number of patients reporting relief is
just as high for the placebos as for the actual drugs.

How does the placebo effect work? No one knows. But
they *do* know that it *does* work. There is simply no
question about it. It works better if the patient believes
it will work, and interestingly it works better if the person
delivering the placebo believes it will work. That sure sounds
like magick or occultism to me.

Re: [FairfieldLife] Vedanta and the Divine Feminine

2013-10-01 Thread Michael Jackson
I don't know why you characterize it as flaming - I'm just stating my opinion. 
And there are more than enough people here on FFL as well as outside of FFL who 
know exactly what I am talking about. 

To wit: the TMO has ALWAYS taken a superior attitude, claiming that marshy knew 
it all, his take on anything vedic was the correct one, he was the ONLY 
spiritual teacher in all of India who had the enlightened awareness to bring 
forth the full potential of natural law from any and all parts of the vedas. 
And since his word on the various aspects of the vedas always supported him 
being big cheese and getting all the money, that means the other vedic 
authorities are wrong.

An example would be the old goat's assertion that south facing entrances are 
wholly and always negative when other authorities on vastu veda say in their 
material that this is incorrect.

On a larger scale, if you ever had any dealings with the Movement, you know 
damn good and well that the Movement always builds itself up at the expense of 
everything and everyone else. They have never been interested in sharing, or 
creating coalitions to promote anything other than TM. That is the reason that 
the TMO has never done anything to promote ayurveda with other organizations 
like Vasant Lad's outfit. 

As I have stated here on FFL I have spoken with people who attempted to create 
a cooperative effort between Chopra's people and the Movement to promote 
ayurveda and to have the TMO and Lad's people work together and the TMO 
rebuffed both parties. 

They had no interest in promoting ayurveda with others because it did not 
glorify the TMO, nor would they get near as much money out of it as they would 
if the other parties would slap both sides of their own heads as they said 
Lawdy Mercy! Massa Marshy done come up wid a betta kind-a aya-veda! Les all do 
TM and forget traditional ayurveda in favor of the yuppie with money version 
the TMO created!


In the same vein I assure you that the only reason MD is approaching these 
folks is NOT to learn from WAVES, nor promote vedic culture in concert with 
them, but to get WAVES all practicing TMSP and eventually to make WAVES a 
subsidiary of the TMO. That's the way they function, always have and always 
will. 


If you choose not to believe it, perhaps you should consider taking a course at 
your local community college on not being so gullible.

One of my all time favorites, especially for Christians:

St. Peter is handling his duties at the Pearly Gates - ensuring all applicants 
are accepted, or sent south - as he has, for the last ten thousand years, or 
so. It being Heaven and all, Jesus happens to wander by, and notices St. Pete 
is looking a little tired. Jesus, being the nice guy that he is, walks over, 
and says, Hey, noticed you've been at this gig for...millennia. I'll take over 
for awhile, if you like. St. Pete looks at Jesus, smiles, and says ok.

So, Jesus is doing his thing at The Gate, C'mon in!, mostly. After awhile he 
notices an old guy, wandering around in the clouds nearby, looking out of it. 
Jesus calls the old guy over.

Hey old timer, how are you?
Well, I'm lost
Hmmm, OK, what can you tell me about your life?
The old timer gets a faraway look in his eyes, I remember a small town...
Yes?
and a woodworking shop...
Jesus's ears perk up at this. 
...and a...a miracle!
At this, Jesus looks at the old man, and exclaims, Father??!!

The old timer looks at Jesus, his face beaming, and he replies, Pinocchio??!

really American interests are the US corporate pirates who want to

It was probably the use of Marty Robbins' El Paso in the final episode
of Breaking Bad that got me thinking about it, but ever since I've
been on kind of a music kick, finding and listening to classic outlaw
songs. El Paso is obviously one of the greats in that category, but
it's another old outlaw song that's stuck in my head tonight, and it's
even brought back some pleasant memories about my time in the TM
movement, so I'll share them with you.

Back in early 1977, when I first heard the song, I was living at the TM
National Headquarters at the end of Sunset Blvd. I was working there as
personnel director for a few months before my Sidhis course, and lived
on the premises in one of the rooms (it was formerly a motel, for those
of you who never went there). It was a cool place to live -- a block
from the beach, next door to the Yogananda Lake Shrine -- and even
though I was making shit money I was earning precious (at the time)
course credits, so I made the best of living there.

It was there I first heard Emmylou Harris' version of a great Townes Van
Sandt outlaw song called Pancho and Lefty. I remember listening to it
one night with my girlfriend, who I had had to sneak into my room, the
both of us feeling very much like outlaws ourselves for having gasp
sex there in the TM National Headquarters.  :-)

Anyway, it's a great song, and listening to it again in a Paris cafe --
all these years later -- I still love it. I also love -- all these years
later -- still feeling like an outlaw.

Dude...you and Thor seriously need to get a room.   :-)


This is the Thor of which I spoke.  No one in modern times has shown any
amount of God-Powers let alone Thor's full set of glories.

Just  the knowledge of him and his world and all the attendant realities
would  INSTANTLY allure almost anyone on Earth -- yeah, for egoic
reasons, but  the allure to acquire such powers or even a fraction of
them -- if such  is possible for humans -- would be irresistible to me.

Not that I  don't get the limitations of any God's nervous system, but
when I  consider HOW LITTLE MAHARISHI ACTUALLY DELIVERED AND HOW LITTLE
HE  DEMONSTRATED, who here in the movement can say they'd be immune to
THE  REAL DEAL?

Thor ain't no one-hit wonder who can get a few people  to see him
levitating -- that kind of stuff can be easily denied by most  minds,
but THOR?  Are you kidding me?  He's no Krishna, but hey, who  wouldn't
want to just hang around his ashram?

It is this Thor  that would disrupt virtually all social structures on
Earth just by him  being known and proven to have his powers.

All major religions  would have to explain him.  All governments would
see him as a threat.   The stock market would plunge to zip in fear that

 it's another old outlaw song that's stuck in my head tonight, and it's
 even brought back some pleasant memories about my time in the TM
 movement, so I'll share them with you.

 Back in early 1977, when I first heard the song, I was living at the
TM
 National Headquarters at the end of Sunset Blvd. I was working there
as
 personnel director for a few months before my Sidhis course, and lived
 on the premises in one of the rooms (it was formerly a motel, for
those
 of you who never went there). It was a cool place to live -- a block
 from the beach, next door to the Yogananda Lake Shrine -- and even
 though I was making shit money I was earning precious (at the time)
 course credits, so I made the best of living there.

 It was there I first heard Emmylou Harris' version of a great Townes
Van
 Sandt outlaw song called Pancho and Lefty. I remember listening to
it
 one night with my girlfriend, who I had had to sneak into my room, the
 both of us feeling very much like outlaws ourselves for having
 sex there in the TM National Headquarters.  :-)

 Anyway, it's a great song, and listening to it again in a Paris cafe
--
 all these years later -- I still love it. I also love -- all these
years
 later -- still feeling like an outlaw.

Good thing he wanted people to their mantras secret.  That worked for a 
few years at least.  In India that might have gotten snickers because 
they would recognize the beej mantras as ones that astrologers and 
vaidyas commonly give out and are not known to be secret.  In fact 
those mantras had been published for years in books on eastern 
philosophy and tantra.  The 1922 book The Garland of Letters by John 
Woodroffe lists them in chapter 26. You can view the book online.  Of 
course that would also be the reason the TM technique gives mantras for 
one's Ishta Devata in India.


Westerners didn't have a clue though I think that some of Charlie's

To wit: the TMO has ALWAYS taken a superior attitude, claiming that 
marshy knew it all, his take on anything vedic was the correct one, he 
was the ONLY spiritual teacher in all of India who had the enlightened 
awareness to bring forth the full potential of natural law from any 
and all parts of the vedas. And since his word on the various aspects 
of the vedas always supported him being big cheese and getting all the 
money, that means the other vedic authorities are wrong.


An example would be the old goat's assertion that south facing 
entrances are wholly and always negative when other authorities on 
vastu veda say in their material that this is incorrect.


On a larger scale, if you ever had any dealings with the Movement, you 
know damn good and well that the Movement always builds itself up at 
the expense of everything and everyone else. They have never been 
interested in sharing, or creating coalitions to promote anything 
other than TM. That is the reason that the TMO has never done anything 
to promote ayurveda with other organizations like Vasant Lad's outfit.


As I have stated here on FFL I have spoken with people who attempted 
to create a cooperative effort between Chopra's people and the 
Movement to promote ayurveda and to have the TMO and Lad's people work 
together and the TMO rebuffed both parties.


They had no interest in promoting ayurveda with others because it did 
not glorify the TMO, nor would they get near as much money out of it 
as they would if the other parties would slap both sides of their own 
heads as they said Lawdy Mercy! Massa Marshy done come up wid a betta 
kind-a aya-veda! Les all do TM and forget traditional ayurveda in 
favor of the yuppie with money version the TMO created!


In the same vein I assure you that the only reason MD is approaching 
these folks is NOT to learn from WAVES, nor promote vedic culture in 
concert with them, but to get WAVES all practicing TMSP and eventually 
to make WAVES a subsidiary of the TMO. That's the way they function, 
always have and always will.


If you choose not to believe it, perhaps you should consider taking a

One  of the problem with this kind of health insurance is that the 
younger people have to subsidize the older people and the government has 
to subsidize both. If you are a healthy 25 year old, why would you want 
to pay $350 for health insurance, when you hardly ever get sick? The

Of course the US can annex other countries if they petition to join. Texas was 
a free Republic once they gained independence from Mexico. Joined the Union in 
1845. As a Repubic, Texas has always claimed the right to leave the union. Not 
so sure the civil war settled that issue since the other states were never 
independent republics. Texas also intered under the stipulation that it could 
subdivide into five seperate states.

 Mike,

I actually believe that it's possible for the US to acquire other states in the 
world.  It's possible for Canada to voluntary join in since the two countries 
are already fairly similar in cultures.

Although the national language differs, it's also possible for Mexico to be 
annexed just like all of the southwestern states, which were originally part of 
Mexico before the Mexican-American War.

But given the fiscal turf battles in Congress at this time, it doesn't appear 
the US has the power to unify the interests of everyone.

Bhairitu,

I just looked up in Wikipedia about the three potential states in California, 
which includes the wannabee state of Jefferson, located in northern California. 
 It sounds ideal.  But I don't believe Governor Brown or his successors will 
let this happen.  For one, politics and money will eventually get in the way.

Also, I read about the concept of Nine Nations of North America.  The idea is 
fascinating.  But who would like to be called a resident of the Empty Quarter?

Perhaps the stupid country should fall.  US Government is an oxymoron 
anymore.  Perhaps we ought to be 9 different countries instead, along the 
geographical lines of the Nine Nations of North America.  That always made 
sense to me.  California, as it is, should be 3 states anyway.  The area would 
get 4 more Senators but we really do need to get rid of Diane Fein$tein.  Then 
maybe we could have what other countries have and that is Single Payer 
healthcare.  Instead we waste trillions on foreign wars to protect American 
interests.  Not they count on the public thinking American interests are 
going after terrorists and establishing democracies when really American 
interests are the US corporate pirates who want to raid the country for it's 
resources.  Secondly we need to get rid of the AMA who keeps people out of 
medical school who have a true interest in medicine and instead support the 
old boys network of sons and daughters of mediocre
 MDs attending medical school.

Funny thing - My health insurance policy just expired, because it doesn't meet 
the provisions of the new law.  
 

 
When I first signed up a year ago, my policy premium, which only covers 
catastrophic care (deductible is $3300 per year), was $200/mo. I am in close 
to perfect health - pulse at about 50, never go to the doctor. 
 

 
Two months after signing up for my insurance, I got a notice saying my premium 
was being re-evaluated, and would probably go down, and they jumped it to 
$275/mo. instead. So I have been paying that every month, and haven't even 
selected a doctor - Why? Because I am never ill. 
 

 
The last notice in the mail for the expired insurance coverage I have never 
used, says the premium, should I continue with a comparable plan, with an even 
greater deductible, will now go to $570/mo. I recognize I am subsidizing all 
the people my age (59) who are in poor health, but Jesus Fucking Christ.
 

 
So, if that is the best I can do, I will now opt for insuring myself, by 
myself, and pay the government fine. Much, much cheaper that way.

day or two off then the temp agency put me to work for another company.
