Well, thanks to improved browsers, we can keep several tabs open at once now. This is useful. You can have, say, OL on one, then just click and voila, you're on www.filthyobjectivistsprayboothbitches.com <--no, don't click it (George, Brant) it's a hypothetical.

And that's what keeps the Web thrumming. Imagine, at any given moment, all around the world there are always a bunch of pathetic bastards sitting in front of their monitors with their pants down around their ankles, their desks littered with balled up Kleenexes, and economy-size pump bottles of Lonely Man Hand Lotion<tm> by their sides.

I thought that all Objectivist women are good girls -- sort of like Amish women, except with cars.

Would John Galt have surfed Internet porn? I suppose it all depends on whether there were some good pics of Dagny Taggart.

If he could figure out a way to justify it as appropriate-- Romantic Realism. That would mean no midgets, barnyard animals, etc. I'm thinking a soft porn site with mild S&M overtones. Or the classic "office" scenarios--she's wearing a business suit with garters underneath. Tortoiseshell glasses, a harsh bun in her hair. An over-the- hard mahogany desk job, at the tip of the powerful, thrusting skyscraper. You know. You've been there.

Not really. Powerful, thrusting skyscrapers don't do much for me. I know some O'ist women who really like them, but they don't call them "skyscrapers."

I just want to know what went on during those cha-cha classes they were holding for awhile at the conferences. That had to be a swingin' crowd.

Back in my Students of Objectivism days, I once joked that I would like to become a "rational gigolo" who makes a living by servicing horny Objectivist women. Friends of mine then drew up a price list that included various extras, such as a marble slab, a riding crop, sound effects of a train or jackhammer, etc.

Sunday is a day of rest, Brant.

Besides, bantering with CNA is a lot more stimulating than arguing with Peter Taylor. I take my thrills where I can find them.

Good point.

The only way I know to wiggle out of this is to say that Peter stimulates my anger, whereas CNA stimulates something else. All those those exclamation points and smiley faces drive me nuts. :rolleyes:

This choice doesn't quite rise to the level of the Paradox of Buridan's Ass, now does it?

I anxiously await someone to do some predictable wordplay with "ass," so we can take this conversation down a few more notches.

Such men are obviously irrational. The standard of man's life qua man dictates that pants be removed altogether. In the event of a fire or other emergency, pants around the ankles could seriously diminish one's chance of escaping.

A true Objectivist hero would not base his porn-surfing method on an ethics of emergencies.

Moreover, it is impossible to run in that condition while maintaining one's Galt-like demeanor.

I disagree. A true Objectivist would recognize the metaphysical insignificance of any situation which might make a normal human look silly, and brush it aside. He could knock over a table while on a date, spill wine and spaghetti all over himself, return from the bathroom with toilet paper trailing from his shoe, and run with his pants around his ankles, all while maintaining his Galt-like demeanor.

This is also a matter of Randian esthetics. Here is how The Fountainhead begins:

Howard Roark laughed.

He stood naked at the edge of a cliff.

Compare this to:

Howard Roark laughed.

He stood, his pants down around his ankles, at the edge of a cliff.

I rest my case.

As hesitant as I am to concede a philosophical principle of this magnitude, I must confess that you have a point.
