  1. So my friend came by the other day, from out of state. So I banged my head against a wall 50 times. It was a special occasion though, so its okay.
  2. I am the standard by which admiration is set. I guess I "admire" myself in the same way one can measure a ruler using itself.
  3. Good thing I never said or implied that then, huh? So ice cream in now way contributes to your goals, like say survival? It has calories. You certainly need to intake them. There is no 'neutral' ground, an action either contributes to your life/happiness (and is good) or destroys it (and is bad.)
  4. http://www.tallahassee.com/mld/tallahassee...on/12776299.htm Interesting story. read it all. Fascinating stuff.
  5. If the man loses any time working (ie he cannot report in to work or has to rent tools from somewhere to go to work the next morning,) then that should be taken into account of any reckoning. For example, if he loses $150 in wages while the tools are gone, the theif not only has to give back / pay for new tools, but also pay for the lost wages.
  6. To elaborate and correct all the errors made previously: There is never a case "against" any actions arbirarily hanging out in the middle of goddamn nowhere. In fact, there is never a successful negative case for anything - thats the agnostics' trick, and false logic. Pleasure is not 'innocent until proven guilty.' As someone else mentioned, pleasure is the sensation of the accomplishment of goals in line with your sense of life - and that can be mighty far off. You should not be lead around by your emotions, you should be lead around by your logical mind. Anyway, the proper process
  7. Palestinian protestors storm Parliament Doublecheck: the article has changed since it was first posted this morning. Its opening originally read: Anyway, good grief.
  8. Reuters: Australian Nobel winner was human guinea pig Now thats a hardcore man of science.
  9. Its not just going 'against that idea,' it is working towards the destruction of the principle behind it. Men work by principles. If you act on such a whim, you are acting in accordance with the principle that such is what you should pursue - which is obviously not in your best interests. But, moreover, why bother with such a girl? Your time is best spent elsewhere. Masturbation is certainly far more rewarding a use of your time, and doesn't involve all the wonderful things that screwing around with an irrational woman gets to.
  10. This thread makes me want to gougue my eyes out. Answer this question: what value does masturbation give you? What are its costs? Question is so simple as to be absurd.
  11. If you want to be entertained by a whore, there are venues for that sort of thing.
  12. Dump Clauswitz and think of applying Objectivist principles to war. Its fairly simple and straitforward. As to military tactics/strategy, that is covered by more modern writers than Clauswitz and is far more relevant.
  13. You still failed to answer how exactly a woman who would drink to the point of bad decision making, go to 'second base' with you and then act like nothing happened/tell you it was a 'mistake' the next morning can be of any value to you. Am I saying you should have known beforehand? I think so, but I am a shrewd judge of character and you might be deficient in that area, so I can allow for that. But now, how can she be worth considering at all?
  14. Lets end this real quick: Is hanging about a girl who will get drunk, get at least half naked with a random male, and then tell you it was all an "accident" the next morning something you value? If so, why? (by the way, that was rhetorical. If you honestly would value a woman with such deficiencies, may I suggest an alternative that would probably be best in the long haul?)
  15. What games do you play? Would be nice to get a dedicated WoW/DoD group going on here. I always wanted to philosophically kill nazis. so, who here plays (or is interested in playing) World of Warcraft and/or Day of Defeat: Source?
  16. Eventually I'll have a near-total artificially made body (minus the brain, of course,) and won't have to worry about bacteria or viruses. If you want some real long-term perspective thats about as positive as you can get, I think. Realistically, since we're reaching the limits of what we can do with chemicals to defeat bactera/viruses, gene therapy will come into the fore in the near future as the best way to treat really dangerous viruses and the like. Mmm...genetic alterations.
  17. If the government is constitutionally unable to interfere with anything about industry, why is this a problem? What motive would, say, Halliburton have in buying off the government except to protect against regulation and/or regulate competitors out of business?
  18. Ohnoes, Moose had a terrible hunting accident just the other day. Lets all hope he gets well soon.
  19. The answer is: whatever is most efficient for each company to do. Certain areas might have different systems, there might be speed limits in some areas (especially areas with lots of turning or traffic) and in others - places like the I-10 for example - it could just be "go as fast as you'd like." People can't fine you, I shall note, unless you agree to be fined in some sort of contractual agreement. I don't know how this might be worked out, but I'm sure speeding would be far less a big deal in a LFC society.
  20. Cox and Forkum have picked up on ths story: (Image hosted by Image Shack in order not to steal bandwidth. Please visit C&F, they're awesome.) I will continue to post as news agencies pick this story up. I think it'll make its rounds, quietly, through even the mainstream media.
  21. Upon some introspection, I don't "regard with pleasure, wonder, and approval" anyone. I don't have a "high opinion of; esteem or respect" anyone who you would know. And I certainly don't "marvel or wonder at" anyone of note today. Joel. Joel is my best friend and of great help to me in hammering out my plans. That is the only man I admire.
  22. As a side note, physically, the difference between male and female is a product of hard times. Genetically, the physical differences between men and women are (gradually) becoming less and less. Eventually there will be no 'masculine' or 'feminine' looks (though this is far, far down the line,) at least none significant enough to really say "x is femine" and "y is masculine." The two are on their way to converging, due to the fact that modern science has made life far easier on both sexes and each ahs to be far less specialized in order to succeed. At some point in time, child bearing was
  23. What? Stupid people being stupid? Okay. Why does this need a whole thread of outrage and silliness over it? The only way I (who happen to be mexican) could give a damn about this is if they bothered me in particular, in which case I would discreetly break their arms, to give them a proper existential sensation of the kind of world they wish to make. Problem solved.
  24. Since I've never seen a bearded woman before, I'd hardly classify you are girly. Still, get a haircut hippie.
