I probably 'know' a lot of people on this forum. If you know me (how many people do you know named Sev, anyway?) then speak up. And if you don't, why not welcome me anyway!

How I learned about Objectivism: in 1998, after reading AS, the inside of the back cover had information about ARI. I sent in for information, went to ARI events, became an Objectivist.

Unfortunately there's not a strange welcoming custom in Ohio, besides the generic American one of "So did you eat yet?" followed by, regardless of your answer "I have soda, do you want some soda? Juice? There's water . . ." (like you're supposed to be surprised that there's water) and "I could whip up some sandwiches really quickly . . ." then "OH! Let me hang up your coat . . ."

My personal least favorite is the traditional "make yourself at home" which no one ever does because, duh, it's not their home.


Ummm . . . when I've had sugar I tend to be a little . . .crazy.
