2. Yeah - Amway
All the time. And don't tell me it's not a cult or a sect - it's full of brainwashed people.

3. Exclusive brethren (I think)
There was this charming little old lady who picketed lectures at uni. By the end of my four years though she wasn't quite a stranger, but the first time she was.

9. Local fundies or ones passing through town
They would come in my bookstore and walk around rather furtively and then try to hand me pamphlets but I would always see to it they left the premises immediately if not sooner.
