Bad Sci-fi: E-Meter
Image by Giant Ginkgo The scientologists were out in force at the Cinco de Mayo celebration, they had set up a booth for their infamous free "stress-tests" to help recruit people under the guise of Dianetics. At the time that I was taking this picture, the e-meter was being used on a young boy. Hopefully the woman mentioned how the boy was filled with Operating Thetans and needed help to clean the dastardly alien souls out of his body. I was quite surprised that I got this close to the machine, scientologists tend to be pretty adverse to people checking out their equipment, especially taking photographs. They were so busy doing their sales pitch, that they didn't bother me at all. I even stepped behind this woman to get the shot, but she was totally intent on the young boy. My girlfriend thought that the e-meter looked totally cheesy. Personally I always thought it was kind of charming in a retro 50s sci-fi prop sort of way. But what totally kills it is the metal cans that the poor inductee holds. They look so cheap, like dime store tin cans, that it is hard to take it seriously.
