    If I had the time, I'd rework the tract as a vampire advertisement. You could leave the text almost the same and just change the pictures...

    @sinedide How are you trying to make friends and involve yourself in other activities? What are your hobbies, can you join some clubs and groups that focus on things you enjoy?

    Well when you don't know, you don't know. So it was easy being a JW and there were times of happiness - yes. I was popular, I had many friends and when I left, all that left as well. I know I will never go back to being a witness. I'm going through a low lonely patch now but I'll never get that low or desperate. Plus knowing what we know - well that would just be the stupidest thing ever.

    Looking at those times. It's like spending a full day at work, without the luxury of lots of coffee breaks, talking nonsense, eating popcorn. I have fantasised about going to a convention wearing a T that says in front, over my boobs: 144 001 and on the back, some goats

    I wake up a lot happier in the mornings now than when I was a dub. I actually don't mind getting out of bed and drinking coffee on the porch with Just Ron, especially on the weekend when I don't have to cut it short to go to work. I was *never* this peaceful and content as a dub.

    Great description by Billy the Ex: "pre-recorded propagandist lip-sync melodrama"?

    I hate to give the Watchtower good ideas, but they could actually make it a live play and not alienate the Brits so much if they just used body microphones. The "actors" would still be going off a manuscript, but the reduced melodramatic hand-gestures and off-putting accents would be a plus for the JWs.

    I wonder how long it would take for me to be evicted?
