  1. Yes, they are still in the original Ayn Rand Bookstore packaging.
  2. I have listed my Objectivism Lecture Library (all cd's) on Ebay for half-price. I am going back to school and need the money. They have been opened, obviously, but the CD's are in perfect condition. If someone from this website successfully bids on multiple items, I will send them a reimbursement check with the merchandise covering redundant shipping charges. You can find all of my items here: http://shop.ebay.com/merchant/love2write.with.ink Up for grabs is: Peikoff The Philosophy of Objectivism (all 12 lectures) Certainty and Happiness Binswanger Psycho-Epistemology 1 &2 Locke Wal-Mart: The Story of the World's Greatest Retailer Successful High Tech Companies Shop Victorioiusly!
  3. If you have to carry just one map around NYC, carry this one Fodor's Flashmaps New York City, 6th Edition: The Ultimate Map Guide They are small and incredibly useful. I pretty much threw out all the maps I had gotten from my other guides. It would also be good to have a list on a seperate piece of paper with the addresses of places you plan on visiting that day. (aka don't plot them on the map other than maybe a dot)
  4. Nice. That is exactly what I was looking for. It is similar to what I've been throwing around in my head as "active reading," basically meaning asking a lot of questions, but obviously the questions have to be related and contextual. When I read it is easy for me to bring forth pictures and feelings and ideas, but only a certain few and they aren't explicitly defined or put into a hiearchy.
  5. I am taking the LSAT and this section (reading comprehension) is where I am lack 100% confidence. It made me think a little deeper on the subject and I realized that I have never been a quick or effective reader. I am by no means illiterate (not even close) but I feel like I can be better. Does anyone have any advice or ideas on the subject, at least more than just to slow down, read more, or check for personal interest.
  6. Jonathan Hoenig is a successful Hedge Fund Manager of CapitalistPig hedge fun. He is also a regular on Cashin' In (Fox News) every Saturday. I thoroughly enjoy the show when it doesn't turn into a shouting match. Check him out at http://www.capitalistpig.com/
  7. Objectivists are ponderers in the aristotelian sense, not the platonic, in that after we ponder we act.
  8. You better not look at your computer screen again lest it cause you to mindlessly act. I am not trying to be mean, but my computer display made me do it.
  9. Cuban is no scammer. He will offer his opinion. If other people agree they will accept his opinion and short the stock. But they can also choose not to short, or indeed, choose to buy the stock. I see nothing that infringes on other people's rights
  10. We're not stuck in Iraq.
  11. We are stuck in Iraq. The consequences of a self-abnegating foriegn policy. Iran has enriched uranium. The consequences of the prior and appeasement. What does one do? I advocate a short and well planned withdrawal from Iraq followed by an aggressive and strategic destruction of Iran's nuclear facilities. Failing these, I too will start eating butter again.
  12. I have not been able to find anything written by this author. His website is sponsored by capmag but there are no articles written by him and nothing turns up in the search. I also googled him an didn't come up with anything. Does anyone know what the deal is?
  13. Well done GC!!! This post was very enjoyable for me. My favorite section is when you effortlessly prove the false theories of value wrong with simple counterarguments. This helped immensely when trying to understand what a arbitrarily set price by a government entity would be: You said "economic values are objective because they objectively reflect the values that people hold." Arbitrarily set economic values (prices) are objective because the objectively reflect the values that the government hold (which are indeed disvalues). This seems simple enough but it gave me a brain cramp. I remember you saying that you were about to read a bunch of economics books. Which ones did you find the most valuable?
  14. I am getting out of the game because I can already tell I am going to play it too much. Let me know if anyone wants my account ( I have one in universe 3 (score 573) and 11 (score 750)). I am sending my resources to mrock. Once I transport then I will drop the alliance, and after a week I will delete the accounts if I don't get any takers
