I'm thinking of submitting a proposal on the necessity of rape by job creators as the only means to prevent Kenyan socialism from destroying the world.
Aren't grants basically a form of welfare? Get some real jobs, parasites!
Write a grant proposal arguing just that (minimum 200 pages).

Hey, I know grants entail a lot of work. They just seem so un-objectivist.

I think it'd be hilarious to submit a grant proposal arguing against grants from an Objectivist position. Better yet to write it as a breathless courtroom speech.

That is now on my daily reading. Perfect like a nineteen-car pile-up as you drive by.
In 1974, when Rand was in the hospital, heavily medicated after the removal of one of her cancer-ridden lungs*, she asked her close friend Joan Blumenthal how the tree outside her window could be nine stories tall. Joan looked and realized that the morphine-addled Ayn Rand was really looking at a reflection of her IV pole in the window. Joan told her this, and Rand threw a giant fit, insisting that the “evidence of her senses” was infallible. She was pissed off for months that Joan tried to “undermine her rationality.”

Rand and her husband Frank O’Connor had pet names for each other. Rand called Frank “Cubbyhole,” and Frank called Rand “Fluff.” While this is horrifying, it must be conceded that there are no possible pet names for these two that wouldn’t give you nightmares.

When she came to the United States in 1925, Ayn Rand stayed with relatives in Chicago for 6 months before heading to Hollywood. She was such a terrible houseguest that her hosts were still complaining about her 75 years later.

She refused to have her cat neutered because, “unlike humans, cats cannot choose to go against nature or mold it to their wishes” and she would not force them. The stench in her apartment was “terrible and permanent.” Nevertheless, she insisted that Nathaniel Branden have sex with her there twice a week for years.

Personal hygiene wasn’t her strong suit. In fact, during the years of his mandated bi-weekly Rand-banging, Nathaniel Branden pleaded with his wife Barbara to discreetly ask Rand to bathe more frequently.
Plus she was a good twenty-five to thirty years older than in that photo. Plus: Don't put your dick in crazy!

Rand really didn’t get jokes. An example:

An acquaintance, to Rand: “Two fellows were sitting down at the end of [a] bar. And one said, ‘My God, you see those two women coming across the street? One’s my wife and the other is my mistress.’ The other guy said, ‘You took the words right out of my mouth!’”

Rand: “What an extraordinary coincidence.”

FAO Hoy. . .
Rand’s favorite fragrance was Edwardian Bouquet by the perfume house Floris of London. Olfactory scholars Lucca Turin and Tania Sanchez describe the scent thusly: “On paper, this handsome chypre has a classic galbanum profile: fresh, bitter green, slightly musky. On skin, it turns peculiarly and distinctly urinous with curdled milk smell, and would invite speculations on one’s continence.”

Ayn Rand totally hit on Art Alexakis!! Alexakis, lead singer and guitarist of Everclear, heard Rand speak at UCLA. “She was this mean old Russian lady, and she flirted with me,” he said. “…she was like, ‘You are a very attractive young man…I like the look in your eyes. They look hard.’”

Proof that the seeds of our societal destruction were sowed in the mid-90's. :ohboy:

True story. Many years ago when I worked in a large organisation and a group of us who didn't know each other were thrown together to work on something. Anyway, we got talking over a few beers and someone asked what your funniest moment was. One of the guys told this story about how he was seeing a married woman and that one night her husband had come home and he ran out the back door etc. etc. you get the picture.
The next guy told the story about how he had come home from work one night and saw a guy running out the back door etc etc..
Small world.

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.

As if we didn't have enough reason to love Jim Henson:
In an absolutely epic conversation which took place on ARPANET in 1976 between Rand and Yoko Ono, Jim Henson, and painter Sidney Nolan, Henson mused about the similarities between Rand and Oscar the Grouch. Rand commented testily, “I hardly spend my time on the sidelines in a trash can grumping,” to which Henson replied, “Not yet anyway.”
