I get a good chuckle out of that CK because I had no particular use for it either. Listening through eight hours in the original was boring enough. But I never befoe saw a 2x2 doctrinal series, let alone public advertising (expensive half page) listing the doctrines to be taught was something that any Christian research organization could put to very good use. And for that reason it was a must-do project, made fun for me and the border guards by my disguise for it.
And while I was inside trying not to doze off during the sermons, I learned after that meeting was over someone else knew of the lectures being put on by workers too. After the meeting there were William Irvine "Great Experiment" tracts stuffed behind windshield wiper blades of cars parked anywhere close to the hall. And the next lecture was fun because the workers were grilling me trying to figure out how I did that while they saw me inside through that whole previous lecture. Those worker had me followed into the washroom to see that I did not slip out to plant more tracts - they held me in strict and constant survailance for the rest of the lectures. And soon after I would grab coffees for and stop to go in to chat briefly with the border guards - I wish I could remember what they called the workers and their followers - but all I can say is that it was not ridicule, but very appropriate.
