Exactly how old does that child have to get before they stop carrying her around?
You have to admit that for a man of his age and hip width, he keeps himself in really good shape.
No new beard yet?
Actually R1 I think that pic was one taken around the media blitz right after Katie escaped. Remember he was seen racing around the city with Suri all the time?
R3, I think he is actually being smart this time around and not pairing up immediately. No doubt he has heard the internet chatter of how ridiculous and fake it looks.
Scienos are not supposed to mingle with suppressive people - meaning anybody who looks down on 'the church'. If he did follow the rules to the letter, he would have disconnected from Suri at the same time Katie took off. He's not seen with Suri often these days because the cult would scream that he was getting special favors. (he is)
Any new beard will be a Co$ zombie.
"I think he is actually being smart this time around and not pairing up immediately."
Nah, I think he's devising hideous punishments for the minions who have so far failed to find him the perfect camera-ready girlfriend on schedule.
Tom has to be a real strong guy to carry Suri all the time.
Who the hell wrote that declaration with the odd emphasis in parantheses? Either it's a fact or not. Poor Tammy. Sad and alone.
This thread is hilarious. That girl is 6 years old and she's carried EVERYWHERE! I want to see her when she's 15 and being carried.
I don't know why I find it so funny, but I'm dying laughing at the thought.
She can't walk.
She is Katie and Tom's little chihuahua. Paris has her little dog and they have Suri. They need to get a cute little carrier for her.
[quote]Do we think Suri will demand a DNA test when she's old enough to know what the deal is with Tom?
She'll know by then.
I bet she's carried so that the COS doesn't try to snatch her. REALLY. I just read Jenna Miscavige's book, "Beyond Belief: My Secret Life Inside Scientology and My Harrowing Escape," and that shit is CRAZY. It's a fascinating book and have a feeling she doesn't spill as much T as she could have since her uncle is running the show.
Perhaps Suri has a club foot.

Are you serious? Link, please.
R27 here: There is no link to provide but the book is fascinating and a real look inside the COS. She doesn't spill much dirt except about celebrities except to say that they were treated MUCH better than the regular members of the church. She also mentions that Greta Van Susteren is a Scientologist, and it was something I didn't know.
Children can go for YEARS without being allowed contact with their parents. Most of the kids endure very little schooling but hours upon hours of hard labor, seven days a week. The auditing goes on for hours at a time, often in sessions that last days and it's not just when people join the church, but it's for every single infraction as members, real or made up, cause or not. Life is extremely controlled--mail is opened and closed, internet sites are blocked with internet usage strictly monitored, and phone calls are eavesdropped on and virtually not allowed. Its VERY frightening.
we wish racist troll elder would go back to dysfunctional dlisted.com and stay.
Tom makes me laugh when I see some of his photos, or hear him laugh. But he does intrigue me. Glad he keeps in top shape. Learned a long time ago, that he wears hair plugs. And that he declares something, only to be proven it's a lie. But, while not condoning that, it's obvious he is far from the only one.
Still, at age 51 he does his best to be a star.
Cruise is around #3 on the list of all-time boxoffice stars. John Wayne heads the list.
Katie doesn't carry Suri around as much as when she was with Cruise. Suri actually walks quite a bit more now. She's also in school, a real one.
She's growing up to be Taffy Davenport, judging from the pic at R21. She'd sooner jump in a river of SNOT!
Well, she has an excuse... she can't walk with only one shoe! Where is her other shoe!!!
I mean, it's ridiculous that she's carried around everywhere but then again, she's a kid... she's going to do whatever she can get away with.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
