  1. Well, I think that you've chosen a worthy body to emulate!
  2. Alright, I have to ask. Are you Vin Diesel or do you just look like him?
  3. Yes, I live in Toronto, and I also go to the U of T Objectivist Club, even though I attend Ryerson University. If you are interested, I know the members very well, or you can feel free to e-mail me for more info!
  4. na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, BATMAN! Well, not exactly objectivist, but a self-made man nonetheless.
  5. Welcome to the forum, fellow Ontarionite! Or is it Ontarionian.... You write with conviction and I look forward to reading your future posts!
  6. Alas, I found nothing. Maybe if you contacted the ARI, they might let you know how to either get into contact with Thomas Bowden or otherwise let you know how you can get your hands on the speech. It was truly a great lecture in my opinion and I have never heard anything like it on the subject. I think Mr. Bowden did excellent research for his piece as he constantly delivers facts; I'd be interested however in knowing his sources, as most writings on the subject are warped.
  7. A couple of months ago, there was an audio on the ARI website entitled Columbus Day Without Guilt, and I believe it was Thomas Bowden, and he clearly explained the Trail of Tears with a refreshing approach. I was going to post the link, but I can't find it anywhere on the site anymore....
  8. Well, what do you know. I was just plotting to touch those novels I've left behind for the past 3 years, plotting how to get back in touch with all the knowledge that's been sitting on my shelves, that I should be re-reading. Thanks for the post, it really made me realize how much work there is yet to be done and gave me inspiration to begin. (Being a fan of Excel, I love the spreadsheet idea...) ThankS!
  9. Weeeellll, i had no idea there was anything else to celebrate on my birthday! Maybe I'll celebrate by watching the movie...
  10. Lord Poppycock I really enjoyed "The Incredible Bread Machine". Thanks for posting it!
  11. Not only is this a ridiculous law, but how does one enforce it? Does it specify how much underwear can be shown? Like maybe 1 inch of underwear above the waistline? It's pretty much whatever an officer deems offensive. To whom?
  12. Sorry, I've been busy. Thank you, Elle, you made me think of the situation from a completetly different angle.
  13. Thank you to those who replied. I am studying fashion design, and therefore, will probably be looking for a position either in retail, or more probably, within a textile manufacturing company, or a smaller apparel designing store. It has always been my opinion that for a position in the fabrication of clothing or textiles, it is far more important to have (I want to say 'concrete skills) skills in production, say, than teamwork skills. Yet, as things go along, more and more teamwork is necessary or enforced. I suppose that my refusal to focus on my teamwork skills was possibly (probably) fueled by my irrational (not always, but often) condemnation of teamwork in the workplace. Or to put it another way, I think that because I don't enjoy working in teams, I have projected this too far. I don't want to overgeneralize, but the rising mandatory teamwork in school really gets to me sometimes. Therefore, I think that I will definitely have to focus more on the individual positions I will be applying to, and decide whether or not teamwork is of importance to that position. Any other advice is also welcomed!

    Abortion

    "No, I'm not saying that. I am saying that abortion is wrong because it takes the life of an innocent human being." Sherlock How can a 'human being' be innocent, if it hasn't the ability to be guilty of something? Only human beings with VOLITION have the ability to make choices and act upon them, and may be characterized as being 'guilty' or 'innocent'. A 'being' that never had the choice is neither.
