Earlier this week, a French court convicted the Church of Scientology of fraud after two rubes complained they were coerced into buying vitamins and literature after having their feelings read by a magic soup can machine. The ruling was surprising not because of the organization’s spaced-out inter-galactic dogma, but rather because it is so rare that anything remotely cool or noteworthy happens in France.

Fact

Spiritual growth in Scientology is achieved through a process known as "the Bridge to Total Freedom." To get to this point, one must "donate" money to obtain course materials, which then allows one to study to get to the next level. Each level is more complex and more expensive than the last. Level OTVIII is the highest and costs up to $130,000.

The List

Merci, France!

The Guillotine The piece de resistance in Alice Cooper’s stage show.
The Battle of Waterloo Inspired crap song by Swedish hit-makers ABBA.
The Metric System We still don’t get it.
Haute Couture Wow. Ugly, expensive, and one-of-a-kind.
The Stethoscope Always chill-inducingly ice cold.
The Bottom Line

Believe what you want to believe. Just don’t be doing it on our spaceship!
