How often did you comment at meetings?

    I rarely commented. To too much energy just to pay attention.

    I comment a couple times each meeting usually. "Ya know, he's got the kind of face you wouldn't get tired of kicking."-quote from some movie I saw.

    I had to comment at least twice during the Watchtower, and at least 8 times during the book study so I could go out on the weekends. (I got the hell out when I was 19)

    This thread actually reminds me of a gag one brother played.

    Actually a pretty cool guy outside the org, but anyway, he was substituting as the Watchtower conductor for the brother who usually did it (he was giving an away talk).

    Anyway, after we finish the review questions, he has everyone turn to paragraph one of the next study (same mag). Reads the question. Says "Here is the answer". And gives everyone the answer (it was one of those basic 'Jesus' or 'Jehovah' answers).

    Anyway, he tells EVERYONE to raise their hands question #1 next week, since we now had the answer. Him and the other brother were friends and joked around a lot, so we played along.

    OMG, you have never SEEN such a shocked expression when the other brother asked the question the following week and 200 hands came up. (Typically, 4-5 would be up a question). I swear to the Lord and Lady, the guy looked like he was going to have a heart attack ON THE SPOT.

    ISP why is that?

    I think every bookstudy only has three commenters (people who will comment on more than one paragraph).

    My comments at WT always depended on whether or not the subject interested me. If it did, I would comment a lot. Otherwise, just once.

    It wasn't until I stop commenting and started loistening to all the other comments that I realized it was all abunch of crap and nothing made sence. That is my advise , shut up and listen ...WOW what an eye opener.
