roy, better in this instance might be a relative term. You would have to be a total troll to get any worse off after than when a JW. When I started college that's when I noticed a real change in myself. Previous to that I wasn't really doind anything besides eating mass quantities of LSD, floating my brain in mass quantities of beer, and wanking off.....Then I hit college. I had a couple advantages, like being able to read and speak in front of people, but testing the limits of my critical thinking exposed me to the whole gamut of things worldly. I couldn't even imagine what I would be like at 31 in the borg. Probably have 6 kids, an idiot for a wife, be a MS (I get to read at studies and hold the microphones), and be a Master Sanitation engineer.
