  1. It depends entirely on how many young congresswomen there are and what he's up to to do. --Brant you may be asking for too much from the guy.
  2. No, only that stillness is the antithesis to existence too--that is more fundamental. --Brant when you stop moving your atoms don't
  3. Eddie Willers wasn't invited to Galt's Gulch because Rand didn't give him a Galt's Gulch type name. --Brant Randt Haede that might have worked
  4. I was trained to give those shots but never did. On the Tamarac is kinda weird. It was not a vaccine, but some kinda prophylaxis against VD. It had to go into the butt because there was so much of it. Those were the end days of the short arm inspection. After a night on the town you were required to drop your pants and squeeze your penis to show no fluid or you would be treated for VD. In Vietnam I treated two Amicans for VD. One with penicillin and the other with tetracycline. It didn't appear in their records which they felt was important. Maybe it was for careerists. --Brant
  5. In Great Britain I understand that libel can also be truth. --Brant
  6. Probably because he couldn't have her there. Nathaniel described Eddie as having a devastating lack of self esteem re his relationship with Dagny, not ever telling her how he felt until the very end. --Brant I think Rand just didn't have the time to buff him up and fit that into the novel (he was a place holder)
  7. Be very glad you live in Canada. --Brant succession is the word
  8. I kept it. --Brant well, I did spend it (in an opium den and a whorehouse)
  9. Try going to "All Activity" to change screens. --Brant I meant "Threads"
  10. It's not who you believe it's what you believe and why. In the hunt for facts and conclusions I don't believe anybody primarily. There are some anybodies I'm inclined to believe--to a point. I'm a profound sceptic searching for truth(full conclusions) not for ad h. debunking. I never line up pretty soldiers all in a row and conclude all soldiers are pretty (nice or whatever). --Brant
  11. Yes, much worse, if you believe the basic statistical base. --Brant
  12. Things are different in Canada. I suspect Canucks are more accepting of current events while Americans are starting to tear the United States apart. --Brant
  13. Abandoning caution started with the vaccination so it's logical. --Brant via inertia the vaccination is actually for fear so I'm a bad voice
  14. To think there isn't a world war going on is completely naive. --Brant partially for Michael
