Actually, this is kinda cool. I never read Atlas Shrugged because there are better and more enjoyable ways to waste my time, but isn't the premise that all of the "producers" of this particular society start disappearing and end up forming a Laissez-faire Libertarian utopia?

Picture it.

An artificial island nation, made up entirely of teabaggers, in honor of Ayn Rand. The ex-pat "producers" of America.

Think about all of the awesome art and scientific progress that can be made in a one-party country made up of 10 billionaires and a thousand aging, diabetic rednecks.

"a kind of floating petri dish for implementing policies that libertarians, stymied by indifference at the voting booths, have been unable to advance: no welfare, looser building codes, no minimum wage, and few restrictions on weapons."


Yeah, this is going to end well. Especially because you want looser building codes on a platform that you're living on.

Libertarianism might be a self-correcting problem.

Why do I keep clicking on this thread?  :x

Plus the Irish accent is marginally more intelligible. Unless you're from Louth.

I'm not WELSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, I'd expect you to say that.

I also got accused of being Scottish at a ren faire this weekend.:crankey:

You should have ran with it.

Nigel weaseled out of being Welsh on account of the Island of Orkney.  She had to give up metal tools to do it, though.

I think I was also accused of being Irish too  :|

I'm not sure there's a functional difference between Irish & Scottish.

We have the sense not to wear man-skirts in cold rainy weather.

Also, who needs a spaceship?

Time is already all elastic and stretchy.

But that slingshot aint gonna pull itself, you need a moving object to stretch it. You need a much faster moving object to stretch it to the point where you see any significant change. It's all about the reference frame.


Why didn't you and I become legit scientists? /rhetorical question

Heh. Well, that's sort of my goal. I've always been interested in space (astronomy, cosmology, etc.), but until recently I've been using the excuse "I can't do math, let alone the math needed for this feild" which was a horse-shit claim I made to avoid having to work towards knowledge. I'm happier now, for having expanded my view of reality to include the language of numbers, and my understanding of the cosmos (Earth included) has expanded due to this.

Hmmm. You and I have more in common than I thought.

You can't mix Irish and Italian.

The result puts a hit out on itself.

Talk to half of the girls I knew in High School.

I can't.  :(

I don't speak Italaec.

Theyahz only one langwidge round heeya, and that's Bahstin.

It's a tough nut to crack, though. Automatically included in the study of space are things like geology, quantum physics, meteorology, chemistry, etc.

Not to mention the area in which I'd like to study the most, the potential of life in space (other forms of life, as well as human life in space) relies heavily on other things, such as organic chemistry and the such.

It's a long row to hoe, but, for me, the pay off is worth it.

While I would like to see it and communicate with it, I think I'm more of a stars and planets sort of guy. Like, whoa, this planet's weird, lets learn more about it. (And develop non-time dilating FTL to boot)

What (almost) boggles the mind is that the same KINDS of people who support sterilizing the poor also oppose sex education, free birth control, and abortion, all of which could have the same practical effect while expanding people's exercise of free will rather than infringing upon it.

Yeah, exactly.

This particular victim was raped, but even still, the rationale was that she was promiscuous based on some rumors and that she wanted to hide the fact that she was raped when she was just 13 fucking years old.

Sometimes I truly detest people.

I don't even know this woman, or any of the other victims. The only thing that I can describe what I'm feeling right now is "calm rage." I don't even know how that works emotionally.

The trial ended on Jan. 19, 1983. It took the jury just 45 minutes to render its verdict.

When asked whether Riddick had been "unlawfully or wrongfully deprived of her right to bear children as a proximate result of the actions of any of the defendants," the jury replied, No.

Flaxman took the case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. On Oct. 1, 1984, the high court declined to hear it.

It's amazing that I haven't put my fist through my monitor yet. Finished the article. This last part puts this within my lifespan.
