  • Biography/Intro I only learned of Ayn Rand and Objectivism a few months before joining this forum. Atlas Shrugged did indeed change my life as many said it could. So much so, that I decided the only thing standing in the way of my happiness, was my marriage, so I divorced my husband of nearly 10 years. Nothing (and no one) will ever stand in the way of my personal happiness ever again. Although I dropped out of college, I love to educate myself and I'm eager to learn more about many things, including Objectivism.

  1. Hey Kelly! Thanks for the friend add!

  2. I share mine w/ G.W., Nancy Reagan and Sly Stallone. What a group! Edit: Oh, and I already wished him a Happy Bday on FB, so I didn't mean to seem rude.
  3. Santiago and I are going! We're going to the OBloggers lunch, OActivists happy hour and OEvolve dinner, and we're going to a shooting range while we're there (although we don't know where/when yet.) We'll also be taking the Lindy Hop lesson and going to the closing dinner/dance, as well as attending the complimentary events. I'd like to arrange a lunch or dinner for all of you we know online, like we did at Newport Beach a few years back. If anyone else is interested, let me know via email, PM or Facebook.
  4. I still don't get it. A few of her songs are somewhat catchy, the lyrics are generally dumb and that video left lots to be desired. It seems to embody the term "bad art."
  5. You can get a lot of intellectual ammo at the FIRM website and blog.
  6. I don't care for House. I liked Sherlock Holmes. It was fun, entertaining, witty and as stated before, reason prevails over mysticism. This film is a huge step in the right direction for Hollywood and I was thoroughly entertained for my $10. I was not expecting perfection. It's Hollywood. C'mon.
  7. We saw it last night and it was great! Reason and intellect prevail over mysticism. What more could an Objectivist want? (Also, the preview for Iron Man 2 was fantastic! Stark tells a congressional committee they can't have his device because it doesn't belong to the American people, "it's my property!")
  8. http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2347...1507&ref=ts FB page created to discuss the show.
  9. When I feel as though everyone else is the problem, I figure out what I'm doing wrong.
  10. The Broncos were just pitiful last night. Three hours of my life I wish I had back. That being said, I'm still surprised and pleased they're 6-2. Looking forward to the rest of their schedule, I see a few more sure wins, so won't be a bad season overall. (Especially considering the drama during the off season.)

  13. I can't remember where I found this link recently. Sorry if it was here and this is a double post. (bullets impacting in slow mo) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKdIKP1arF0 (great commercial...kid's reaction is hilarious)
  14. 2000 IU a day is not very much, unless you are eating lots of foods with Vitamin D in it or in the sun everyday. Under the commonly accepted school of thought, that's probably enough, but under the new school of thought that's emerging, you need and can take quite a bit more than that. I take 4000 IU per day and now that winter is setting in, I'm considering more since my sunshine time will be cut drastically.

  15. Holy crap! 6-0?!
