DeathHamster, YOU ROCK!
Given the total at http://wwpwikibackup.wiki-site.com/index.php/List_of_Former_Church_members_who_have_spoken_out says 1367 I wouldn't expect any article there to be the "latest".
For some reason the sign-up/login page has no way to register new accounts to update that
Hmm... I'd forgotten that Hubbard's lectures are claimed recorded on gold records...
Church Scriptures Get High-Tech Protection June 24, 1990, Robert W. Welkos, Los Angeles Times
Pure gold is a shitty material for a record, too soft, but .. Hubbard did like to run his mouth, so that's a fuckton of records--and gold! (Multiply by 4-5 vaults?)
Pure gold CDs make a nice portable asset. (As in really big gold coins with a hole in the middle.) Once the gold is formed as "religious artifacts", no one is going to look at it too carefully or ask where all that fine gold came from in the first place.
It might be a hoot if some government agency (Treasury?) conducted a raid and asked them to play back a random selection of these "1,000 year CDs".
Ah wait, that's probably why they put a glass coating on them. They could claim that breaking the glass would be religious desecration...
The glass coating is probably to protect the soft "pure gold". So which discs are stainless steel and which are gold? Audio/video vs written word?
The gold discs are recordings, the stainless-steel plates for the written stuff. Except that they also were showing demo archival nickel discs. *shrug*
The OP is an asshole. Totally ruined the plot for Fast and Furious 7.
You seem to know a lot about those vaults ...
Note that I'm citing references.
Does it bother you that people are compiling the known information, drawing conclusions and trying to speculate from that?
Not in the least - I was just pointing that out. No need to feel defensive
Yeah, and you're about as subtle as a tornado in a trailer park.
And let's keep the road trip just amongst ourselves, OK?
Road trip? More like a convoy -
That is one huge fake trophy. It's bigger than COB DM!
I've started to put the article back together. Their wysiwyg editor seems to mess up <ref> tags, even when it's turned off. I'll have to find a work-around.
It's unusual for CoS to mention CST, rarer still to mention vault stuff. This page does both and has stats that someone either pulled out of thin air or their fat ass.
Pix or GTFO!
For once, their stats are too low to be believable! 2,300 titanium boxes, split among 4-5 locations isn't that many when compared to the piles of crap that Hubbard generated. 575 boxes to hold all of Hubbard's junk? No.
Kevlar did not come into commercial use until the 1970's just so you know!
Just so you know.
More scientology think. Kevlar offers no protection against nuclear blasts, radiation, earthquakes, cave-ins, rifle bullets or floods, but they wrap it in Kevlar anyway.
They say that they wrap them in Kevlar. They also say that they've got 2,300 titanium cases.
I don't believe either of those without more (any?) proof.
I have no trufax on the Kevlar, just from the news piece, but I know some people in the metal enclosure manufacturing industry, and a fellow in that line of work verified purchases of titanium cases by the scientology enterprise. He did not tell me the sales figures, so don't know about the 2,300 number.
p.s. I wonder if the Kevlar pieces that they use for wrapping are remnants of that used to make jockstraps and underwear for David Miscavige.
In his position, he must protect his balls.
David Miscavige has balls. well butter my ass and call me a crumpet!
Eh? Did you say David Miscavige has butter balls?
David Butter Balls Miscavige - does have a certain ring to it....
and it certainly fits with his latest
Now we know what's in the vaults: Crappy old video games!
Well, no. But that's the impression a lot of people are going to get from this silly story:
The game cartridges and the vaults have both been reported on separately, but they created a frankenstory by stitching them together.
The "city" of Trementina, heh.
And it's not "numerous underground vaults", it's one 700' rock tunnel.
Not much new, but good article:
Inside Scientology's Secret Bunkers March 10, 2015, Marlow Stern , Daily Beast
Scientology TV gives viewers a glimpse of the church's most secret locations - but why? March 22, 2018, Tony Ortega, Underground Bunker
More boxes, but look at all those thick cable supports down the middle of the tunnel! Someone fucked up badly when calculating the loads and stresses, and they had to do a fuggly fix.
