  1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NravO09oVls It's a very happy, uplifting piece which is very fun to play. Let me know what you think
  2. Please tell me that your bar is called "Atlas Chugged."
  3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zR2ipu20WBQ Enjoy
  4. When you diss skyscrapers, you diss all of us.
  5. A mostly harmless program or an ominous preface of things to come...I'll let you decide for yourself.
  6. "One protester dressed as the Easter bunny managed to hop through the police cordon but was stopped before he could reach the Bank of England. Another black-clad demonstrator waved a fake light saber at officers." I lol'd at this because it really highlights how detached these people are from reality. It's like unintentional self-parody.
  7. It looks like he's about to torch the American Flag. So yeah, pretty accurate either way.
  8. Slap a big skyscraper where the field-looking thing is .
  9. Anyone else heard of this show? My girlfriend and I were flipping through channels and came across this on the Sci-Fi Channel. It stuck out to me because there's a character named "Julius Galt" and the official unit of currency in the show is the "rand." After watching a few episodes (there's a marathon on right now) I am pretty sure it's about this ex-detective from an alternative universe who gets thrown into another universe quite like ours, who is trying to get back so he can confront his anarcho-fascist government. It's got some really beautiful shots of huge, inspiring cityscap
  10. One of the basic elements of Capitalism is risk-taking. If one Objectivist was making decent money on the mainland but knew that nobody else had ever explored the "uncharted" area before, and that there was possibly a multitude of wealth to be had out there, someone would eventually come along and decide to take that risk for their own personal gain (or loss, if it turns out there is nothing). It's like, horses work fine but eventually somebody decided to spend their time and resources making the buggies run on a different kind of fuel, and since he was right about it he became a very rich a
  11. Well, I think everything has at least a little to do with philosophy. After all, someone's general philosophy on life would shape their answer to that question just as much as any personal experiences or lack thereof could. The reason I ask is, I feel these things are important aspects of my life and that Objectivist philosophy basically treats the idea of extra-terrestrial beings within our midst the same way it treats angels, gods, or santa claus. As rubbish. Now, I don't consider myself an "expert" but I do believe very strongly that it is not irrational to believe that such things
  12. Is there any official word on how an Objectivist would approach the paranormal, or research into it? I ask because I live in a lesser-known UFO hotspot and I've seen about a half-dozen of them in my lifetime.
  13. At least he was only gunning for a malaria vaccine. Think about possibilities for other third-world country problems... "People in Africa don't have adequate homes, so I hired a bunch of guys to wreck the shit out of your houses while you're here" "People in Africa can't afford cars, so I'm gonna drive this monster truck over all your cars right now." "People in Africa are starving, so I bought all the food in the tri-county area and buried it." "People in Africa are experiencing genocide, so I'm gonna start shooting at you all with my AK" "People in Africa have AIDS, so guess
  14. WOW! I'm gonna think twice now before I refer to a guitar, car, or gun as "sexy!"
