Amelia . . . that's not gross so much as bloody hilarious!
watersprout . . . what a heartless prick! . . . to publicly humiliate a child like that is typical of JW Authorities attitude to children . . . very uncaring!
teel . . . you reminded me of a situation that developed in an old congo many years ago. The next door neighbours had been "at war" with the congo ever since the hall was built . . . they hated the cars piling up on the street outside on a regular basis, as the hall had very little off-street parking.
During the watchtower study, every time the paragraph was read there was a loud drum roll and clash of symbols from next door, and then silence while the question was read. The timing was impeccable but most just assumed it was coincidental. Until we got to about paragraph four . . . and there it was again right on cue. It then dawned on one of the brothers what was happening. We had recently set up the phone-in system and the teenage lad next door had secured himself a hookup and was listening to the program on his headset . . . and providing the musical accompaniment.
