"You know, we never had "pink toilet" therapy in St Pete.  cleveland had a boxing ring, and we didn't have that either.



St pete had extreme motivating, where the guys would get so worked up "motivating to be called on" they would snap and wave their arm so violently they would almost fall out of the chair. It morphed into a really weird thing after the seed during the straight era and was non voluntary, and is practiced to this day in the offshoot programs.



my point is, every location was a tad different. Anyone from Lauderdale or cleveland remember bizzare "motivating" to be called on?  "


The motivating at Straight was extremely bizarre.  A lot of survivors I know have shoulder problems to this day.  People would be up out of their chairs (one foot held in place under the chair as to not be accused of trying to run) their entire bodies motivating.  It wasn't fun to be in a "bust ass rap".  300 kids locked in the carpet room, forced to wear jackets, the heat turned all the way up...it was brutal!!!

Truth resides in every human heart, and one has to search for it there, and to be guided by truth as one sees it. But no one has a right to coerce others to act according to his own view of truth.

Thanks ya'll!

Our nada who art in nada, nada be thy name. Thy kingdom nada, thy will be nada as it is in nada. Give us this nada our daily nada and nada us our nada as we nada our nadas and nada us into nada but deliver us from nada; pues nada. Hail nothing full of nothing, nothing is with thee.
--Ernest Hemingway, American author
