    I hope he was meaning a GOOD Pastafarian restaurant.

    Amusingly, I have sitting in the bookcase next to me the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

    He’s NOT the Messiah, he’s a very naughty boy!

    Remember the Aussie rock band Men At Work? They were sued for the flute phrasing in Do You Come From The Land Down Under. They took it from an ancient aboriginal tune, clearly not copyrighted, which had been incorporated in to a Australian Boy Scout (or equiv) camping song, and somehow that song ended up under copyright. MAW lost their defense by saying it was from an old aboriginal tune even though it was demonstrably true.

    There can be reasonable copyright, but because of The Mouse That Cannot Die, we’re probably doomed.

    At first I suspected the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, but they lacked motive.

    (okay, yeah, it isn’t Firesign. it’s still a good line.)

    How about:
    I’m high alright, but not on false drugs! I’m high on the real thing: powerful gasoline, a clean windshield, and a shoe shine!

    @The Old Professor

    Part of the problem is the willing surrender of privacy by people blurting out every little detail of their lives on Facebook et al. We’ve surrendered more private information via FB and store discount programs than the gov’t could ever imagine and we have a new generation of adults coming in who don’t see the least need for privacy. (I speak collectively: I don’t FB and blurt out every last detail of my life, although I have nothing to hide I don’t want every last detail in government hands without proper warrants).

    What I hate is the double-standard. If they’re allowed to snoop on us, then we absolutely should have total government transparency and be able to see everything the government does. Every congressman’s tax return and banking information should be open for all to see. And with the FISA courts being able to re-write the law with no review, that needs a great big spot light permanently on it.

    @Doctor Toon:
    Facebook = Google, Google bought ’em out several years ago. So your Trinity of Terror is actually a duopoly.

    But I do agree with you, all Gmail gets is mailing list stuff in my accounts.

    Very few institutions that teach philosophy also include Rand as a major study. Most criticism seems to be that Objectivism is poorly developed, derivative, and more literary. Myself, I tried to read Fountainhead (available on Gutenberg.org) and just couldn’t read her writing.

    @Michael wme (from yesterday)

    Thanks for the information, I don’t know where I came across the quote but I’ll update the file that I keep it in.

    “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.” —Paul Krugman
