Old Mr. Hubbard's Got Crazy In The Cupboard

Rolling Stone has a fascinating, exhaustive, enormous piece this month on what it's like to be a Scientologist.

After reading it, you'll realize that jumping up and down on Oprah's couch like a kid on the short bus is one of the less strange things about Tom Cruise.

Because the "Church of Scientology" is famously litigious, the media has largely shied away from doing exposés on it. This article doesn't draw a lot of conclusions about Scientology--it just puts it out there in all of it's incredible weirdness for the world to see.

And it's definitive proof of the addage "You can find somebody to believe anything."
