Minneapolis, MN. ~ While Anonymous was celebrating in the May Day Parade in Minneapolis, MN. seems some of them happened upon a a Scientology/Dianetics Stress Test booth buried inside a Spanish grocery store along the parade route. The chance meeting presented any opportunity to retrieve inside printed sales techniques (in the form of a script) that were used in the supposed innocent stress test.

• Hello![handshake] my name is _______________, What's your name? [tells]
• Nice to meet you! [put cans in hands]
• Here's how it works, I'm going to ask you a question, you don't have to say anything and we're going to find out what is causing you the most stress in your life. When the needle moves to the right, that shows stress.
• [Turn the meter on and get the needle on the dial.]
• Think of the different people and situations in your life.
• There! [point to needle falling] That's stress! What did you just think of?
• [Make a big deal out of the read and say this with impact so that it impinges on them]
• [Get in comm. If no real ruin, give them a good and appropriate ack and say:]
Think of something else causing you stress.
• [Get in comm. If still no real ruin, check over the following areas, one at a time, if they haven't already come up: work, family, relationships, health.]
• [If you still have not found a ruin, then look at them with good TR's and high (illegible) and say,] Let me ask you a question, what is the one thing that is really messing up your life?
• [Once you have the ruin, ask] How long has this been going on? , How has this been affecting your life? or How does this effect you? [to make it real.]
• [Once done, give them a very good acknowledgment and take the cans away and show them the Dianetics book.] Let me show you something. Have you ever heard of this book? [Put the book in their hands and have them read the first two paragraphs of the inside flap of the cover. Let go while they read it. Take the book away when done.]
• What you just told me about, where... [repeat the ruin back as exactly as possible]... this book will show you exactly why that happens and how to fix it.[When you say "...how to fix it", put the book into their hands and let go.]
