This is a really bad joke. [Jul. 18th, 2002|06:09 pm]

It came to mind when I started thinking about Atlas Shrugged (which I'm a little over a third of the way through) and the philosophy of Ayn Rand, versus the ideas of Daniel Quinn. I thought about titling a comparison of the two in LiveJournal "Ayn Rand and Daniel Quinn walk into a bar," and that inspired this:

Ayn Rand and Daniel Quinn walk into a bar.

Ayn turns to Daniel and says, "I'm dead."

Daniel turns and says, "Really? I have a book that might help."




I told you it was bad. Still cracks me up, but I'm weird...

Yeah, that's pretty much where I am...

I almost completely agree with Daniel on the similarities and differences between the two philosophies. Once I finish the book, though, I'm going to go into a little more detail...

Halfway done...
