QUESTION CHICAGO

Leah Remini exposed some Scientology secrets this week. What are your thoughts on Scientology?


Kim with the rings

Kim K.

I find the entire thing so fascinating. I watched a documentary on it a few months ago and the entire premise of their beliefs just baffles me.


Ashley B.

Ashley B.

It is messed up and it frightens me, that is all.


Angelo B.

Angelo B.

I don’t put much thought into organized religion. I actually listened to a podcast that interviewed her and some of the stuff she mentioned seemed intense. Like most other religions, they all boil down to be very similar. People follow specific beliefs and set of rules, followers give money to support the organization, and they have some scandal and can be associated with a bad stigma.

I can’t believe there are so many admitted scientologists. Most types of really strict religions are given a strong side-eye from my perspective, but scientology really takes the cake on the crazy, doesn’t it?


So what we’re you for Halloween?


Kim with the rings

Kim K.

James P. Sullivan from Monsters Inc. I looked adorable.


Ashley B.

Ashley B.

I was Tonks from Harry Potter and no one got my costume, you uncultured swine.


Angelo B.

Angelo B.

I dressed up as a Slytherin from Hogwarts. The best house at the school! Griffindors got nothing on us!


Molly K.

Molly K.

Eric and I were Amy and Nick from “Gone Girl.” Since we put my face on the missing poster, I was slightly anxious the entire night that everyone thought we were just joking about domestic violence. Not the case.

 What are you more concerned about, the Illinois Lottery not paying out or the possible CPS Strike?


Kim P

Kim K.

Well, they both suck and may result in my friends being poor.


Ashley B.

Ashley B.

The CPS Strike. People can just play the Powerball if they are that hard up.

Angelo B.

Angelo B.

Both are indicative of how Illinois’ budget is off its rails, but I guess I would say CPS strike since it directly involves a lot more people.


Molly K.

Molly K.

Way more concerned about the CPS strike, given that the lotto is dumb and I live with a  teacher.

What are you more thankful for, your legs or your arms?


Kim P

Kim K.

This is the hardest JAT question ever. I guess my legs?


Ashley B.

Ashley B.

Arms. I could get by without legs, but relearning to wipe my ass? No thanks.

Angelo B.

Angelo B.

I’d say arms. I feel like there is more out there to aid those without the use of their legs than those without use of their arms.


Molly K.

Molly K.

What sort of question is this? I’m grateful for both!
