The "babes ranch" I attended in 1972 was an abandoned farm house without running water. There was a well that we drew water from. No running water meant no toilets,so at first we just went into the woods and dug a hole. That quickly polluted the immediate surroundings, so the idiotic leaders running that place ordered that a deep hole for an outhouse be built. Trouble was, they had it built at a higher elevation than and too near the water well. In short time, a dozen or so people contracted Hepatitis because the well water became contaminated. Those desparately sick people were quarantined in the old, falling down barn on the property, and we had to have our water brought in from a nearby neighbour.

Those same idiots okayed a compost heap near the main building. In no time, it became a festering rot, swarming with maggots. Me and another guy were given the job of digging a deep hole at the bottom of the hill, digging up the maggot infested compost, moving it by a sledge and burying it. It took us all day, and the smell was gut-wrenching. I can't remember why I deserved that particular task. Maybe it was just to make me a "stronger endtime soldier."

So I can believe just about anything, no matter how bizzare, that people say they were forced to do by TF's leadership.
