  1. That's what I thought too until I started reading some of the stuff written by the students themselves EDIT: This was in response to softwarenerd's post
  2. I've heard some stories about large amounts of weed smoke at thier concerts
  3. Some of thier songs on thier last CD are pretty bad though, like "Carbon Monoxide" and "Tougher Than It Is". Particularly this last one where it opens with the line "There is no such thing as you". But I do love thier music and even those songs despite thier lyrical problems And oddly I too was thinking about "Short Skirt/Long Jacket"'s lyrics a lot recently
  4. Pandora It's an internent radio that plays music based on what the music you tell it you like using The Music Genome Project to find music with similar qualities. At first it might play a lot of music you don't like, but you can skip songs you don't like as well as prevent them from being played again. So far I've been VERY satisfied with this site and even paid the voluntary donation rather than using it for free because of how much I enjoy it. I'd say it's worth a try if you want to find some new bands to listen to.
  5. Well knowing these offhand is still rather useful if only to save you time you would spend using a calculator.
  6. http://www.popsci.com/popsci/science/0a03b...ecbccdrcrd.html More interesting than the bubbles themselves is the dye he created. This story just shows what a man can do if he holds to his dreams.
  7. Sometmes you just need to say that if the person cannot support themselves without the goverment's help they really shouldn't be alive. You can't be reluctant to say that if someone cannot create the means for thier continued existance they will and should die. All this country gives you is a right to life, not the means for it. This does mean that people will die, but only people who cannot live by thier own ability.
  8. Well the article seems to feel she dosen't even belong in prison to begin with if you ask me. I honestly do have to agree with the article, prison sentences are used too often for things they shouldn't be, and when they are used the experience isn't harsh enough. It has always bothered me the efforts they go to to make prisoners feel better.
  9. Hmmm... I avoided seeing it because it seemed pro-subjectivism, so maybe I shoudl check it out
  10. Thank you, at the moment of reading your post I had to smack myself and think to myself "Now why didn't I think of that" That explains a lot for me... I always thought that she held the same beliefs as Roark, which I realize now was a mistake, so her actions wouldn't make much sense in that case. This puts a whole new light on it, thank you.
  11. I think you are missing a crucial point that was made in Atlas Shrugged. Remember what Dagny had told Francisco about her love for him after it was apparnant she loved Galt? It was that she still loves Francisco, only she loves Galt more and therefore chooses to be with him. Since love is based on what you value in the other person, how could what value someone else have affect your own value? I think what you've forgotten is that love can be felt more strongly or less depending on what value they are to you. She still loved Francisco and Rearden just as much as she always had, but now there was a new man in her life she loved more than she ever loved them.
  12. I also find I sometimes have trouble reading the Fountainhead because of the fact that I still, after reading it three times through, cannot understand some of the characters. I can understand Roark, Gail, Henry Cameron, Austen Heller, Mike, Ellsworth, ect. But when it comes to reading about three people I just get an extreme feeling of confusion, those characters being Peter Keating, Catherine, and Dominque. Thier actions just never seem to quite make any sense to me whatsoever.
  13. I did like this film quite a bit, I think what I disliked the most was the ending. This has more to do with the plot than anything else. *spoiler* At the end the product has to be discontinued because a type of bacteria inside the feces would become quite deadly when the product was used on it. I just couldn't see why they wouldn't just combine thier product with some antibacterial spray like Lysol >_< *end spoiler*
  14. Heh, I think we all can agree with that
