    I am PIMO but attended the R.C yesterday for family pressure reasons. A "sister" I've not seen for a while told me her husband is overjoyed because a man he called on recently in the field service suddenly told him he wanted to attend the R.C. The unusual thing is, this man is a millionaire having built a property portfolio. He is about 60 and his life seems sorted, so why the hell would this type of person want to go to a convention named "Don't Give Up!", which in itself sounds really creepy?

    Because unfortunately nobody is immune to cult recruitment tactics...

    Maybe the guy is lonely and loves the JW attention.

    Maybe the guy is scared for his death coming closer.

    Maybe.....something else. Who knows.

    Pardon my ignorance but what does PIMO stand for?

    this man is a millionaire having built a property portfolio. He is about 60 and his life seems sorted,

    Maybe he is just curious not knowing anything about JW`s beliefs.however attending a RC should set him straight that he has set foot into a cult environment.

    Or maybe he is in early stages of dementia and just needs people around him.

    Whatever his situation I feel sorry for him and wish I could have a conversation with him.

    He will be felt most welcome and his inheritance will be accepted by the warriors of Warwick. Money and brains don't go hand in hand.

    portfolio? in some places just owning one run down shack makes you a millionaire.

    @moreconfusedthanever I asked the same question about a month ago. It stands for Physically In, Mentally Out. :)

    Maybe he's ill and wants to be "insured" in case it is the truth. Although, i could think of a lot more appealing afterlives than the JW version.

    Give me Valhalla any day of the week.
