    Didn't say you lived there but those airports do take up a lot of space.

    I beginning to wonder if the delusional have to become delusional with respect to their delusion in order to come back into the real world, wrong makes right sort of thing. They managed to somehow become delusional once so I guess they can do it again, so there is still a chance for you.

    Not sure but we haven't heard from a Christian in a while.

    actually if I am ever in an airport its to catch a plane.

    Seriously, the whole airport thing is a severely out dated, highly provincial cliche. Nobody would understand it, not even devotees, unless they grew up in america during the late seventies and early eighties.

    Perhaps this comment of yours might serve as a suitable point to begin discussing the absurd things atheists say ...

    Thinking I was serious was your first mistake (today). It did its job, evoking a response.

    its not clear how suggesting that you are talking complete nonsense is falling for the trap of taking you seriously .....

    However I didn't really expect a comment on my attempt at parody. Wishful thinking on my part to think I was giving you some hope.

    at the very least I guess you stand successful as gaining liberation from a blank computer screen.

    I think we've drifted about as far off topic as two can get. If you were Christian I'd be asking you to continue, however not much sense in firing any more insults here. There are going to plenty more opportunities in future threads I'm sure.

    I'm a Christian. Also, I quoted the wrong post.

    Not so.

    Robert Cialdini, in his book Influence: The Psychology Of Persuasion used the aiport strategy as an example of a persuasion strategy.

    This book is a standard book for many economists, psychologists, social scientists, and others, it is fairly famous and considered relevant. And with it, the aiport strategy, as a google search reveals.


    It is in this book that I have first learned about it.

    Out of the thousands of devotees I have met, I can only think of about 4 or 5 that have ever distributed books in airports during the past 10 years (and even then, only in america) .... and even then, I wouldn't be surprised if there's none now due to the tightened security around such places post 9/11.

    There is however a culture of magnanimity associated with many vaishnava practices ... especially with anything coined as "prasadam" (offered food and flowers ... but also a host of other things like sandal wood paste and caranamrta). That's been in vogue for at least 500 years (post mahaprabhu)
