I've heard about Rand, but didn't get around to reading her work. To Sidonzo's question, I would say yes. It is, after all, in my selfish interest to make sure that the air is pure, the food safe and the water clean , that my country is at peace and my community is prosperous. Honestly, the way some...

Nin, that's really great and I congratulate you. I suppose one can never have "enough" talent :P but from what I've seen of your writing, you have plenty

And I'll third Axordil and River. If they think you are coming to marry and stay, they will be more likely to refuse you. Mind you, nothing to stop you from getting engaged while you are here, should you be so inclined. ;) And make sure they know you have large family, and a job or school to return ...

Since she hasn't finished the book, maybe she could focus on the beginning and show how leaving the Shire was an act of heroism for both Frodo and Sam but in different ways?

The Indiana legislature has been distracted for 100 years by a discussion of daylight saving time. Once they have resolved this, I am confident they will return to the discussion of pi. Xerox beat them to it. One of their programming manuals explained the use of constants such as PI = 3.14159265 in...

Great topic, and one I could go discuss for ages (too bad I have to work). I think this dichotomy feeds on the belief that woman's sexuality belongs to a man - first to her father and then to her husband. This is a very convenient worldview for the men. It allows a man who adopts it to dismiss sexua...

Sunsilver - :hug:
I'll be thinking of you.

I would second what Axordil said - your business now is grieving. I hope you accept all offers of help, and I hope you receive many of them.

If you will forgive a newcomer breaking into this discussion... There are people who are by nature gate-breakers, and the fewer gates you put up the less likely they are to break them. That is true enough. Locks exist to keep out honest people (said Frelga who had to break down an apartment door at ...

I started a thread in The Turf sharing an ACLU ad that presents a hypothetical scenario where a pizza place has access to all your health, travel and financial information. While discussing that ad, online and IRL, I came across some interesting information about the ways in which private databases ...

This may be infringing on Symposium territory, but here's an example of a private company that is trying to introduce a variation on a national ID card. You may want to peruse other stories on the same page. "I'm not a Terrorist" Cards Journalist and entrepreneur Steve Brill is developing ...

Mine comes up with the phone book listing, which lists the last name, but not address, and the city is incorrect. However, the personal information you can find just by googling is astonishing. Try googling your name or your email. When hubby was changing jobs, he found all kinds of information abou...

I wonder if something like this is really that far away from reality. I certainly hope not. The technology is all available today. All the information they are referring to is entered in various computer systems and much of it is public records. The logic behind is not complicated at all. In fact, ...

Fascinating! I'm a boring person by comparison. This reminded me of a sci-fi story I read long ago, of a man who went through some experimental hyper-space travel with the result that his hearing and seeing got switched around. In other words that character heard sights and saw sounds. The story dea...

Life is not a dental appointment. Hear, hear! :) Enchantress , I would not for a moment imply that you have any sort of obligation to become a mother, or that you have no other worth if you choose not to. I mean, the male half of humanity have never once given birth, but we don't hold it against th...

Oh, Iavas, that's just such a bummer! You will pass eventually, you know. My hubby failed twice and the first time he didn't even get out of the parking lot. I failed once. The second time I sqeaked through by a single point, and that's only because the man who tested me erased one of the "bad&...
