  1. I'd like to point out that Aristotle never said "A is A." To the best of my (limited) knowledge, Aristotle thought the Law of Non-Contradiction was the most basic metaphysical principle. The Law of Identity wasn't made explicit until many, many centuries later. Those who have an interest in the subject may find this thread at THE FORUM for Ayn Rand fans interesting: http://forums.4aynrandfans.com/index.php?showtopic=881
  2. This comment is insulting... to animals. Please call them "sub-animals."
  3. Another question, if you don't mind: Do you think silvertips or full metal jacket would be a better self-defense choice for a smaller caliber pistol? I have heard that for smaller caliber rounds hollow-points are a bad idea because they don't penetrate far enough to substatially damage the attacker. I've never talked to a Cop about these things before, let alone a *Rational* Cop! So I value your opinion!
  4. Rational Cop, I was wondering if you knew anything about the effectiveness or not of the .32 ACP. Is it too small to be of much use for self-defense? My reason for asking is because I want to know how effective a small .32 pocket pistol would be.
  5. How about Warwick Davis?
  6. Of the girls linked here, Yuko Ogura is my favorite: http://yuikabe.cool.ne.jp/idol-a-ogura_yuko.htm She's just so cute! And don't forget the fact that you're an Objectivist! Talk about a dream come true for me!
  7. New Jersey is actually on my list of potential places to live (because of its proximity to New York City). Would you mind telling me more about the corruption there?

  10. Mr. Laughlin wanted me to give you this message: "The Firefox connection worked for about a week. Now, even through Mozilla Firefox I can not get access to OO.net. This problem first appeared this morning, Thursday. When I click on the button near the top, the button Patrick help me set up for OO.net, I get this message, as an alert: 'The connection was refused when attempting to contact forum.objectivismonline.net' When I try to go through Google search, on Firefox, I get the same message. As before, this problem appears only in trying to connect to OO.net -- not in connecting
  11. I honestly have not read enough of your posts to answer your question. But I do like your avatar and screen name.
  12. He's using MSN. I'll ask him to try Internet Explorer instead.
  13. Burgess Laughlin is unable to post. When he signs in, his name appears in the Board Statistics at the bottom of the page, but at the top of the page it still says: "Welcome Guest ( Log In | Register )" Each time he tries to log in, the same thing happens. When he attempts to post, he gets this Board Message: "Sorry, an error occurred. If you are unsure on how to use a feature, or don't know why you got this error message, try looking through the help files for more information." The error returned was: "Your posting permissions have been removed." It then says: "
  14. I have known about the philosophy of Objectivism since I was 16 years old, but I never actually practiced it until I was 23 (I’m 27 now). On some implicit level I must have accepted the theory/practice dichotomy. For most of my youth I lived without principles or direction. I thought I was an Objectivist, but in practice I was a just a hedonistic pragmatist. I was unhappy, my life was going nowhere, and I didn’t have a clue. Then I "woke up."
