    As always, you can view these the roundabout way by looking here. Sometimes, there's additional commentary! But really, you'll just end up back here.

      I like the brown-ness, once again.

      Ich bein ayn rand. That's how I remember. Now if you'll excuse me, I gotta go read that thread.
      btw did you hear the metafilter guy on the boingboing podcast?

      Yeah, I heard a little of it, but something at the very beginning really annoyed me, so I didn't listen to the whole thing.

      Why would you give that big business call girl the respect of pronouncing her name correctly?

    6. johnralston ages ago | reply

      I don't! I consistently call her "Ann Rand". Not to do so would violate my sense of self-importance.

      I thought her name was Ann Rynd for the first 30 years of my life before I realized I had it backwards in my head.

      That's so you, dude.

      (I love the brown, too. It makes the domestic moments more intimate somehow.)

      My AP English teacher sidestepped the whole debate by referring to her simply as "Rand".

      Hey, mathowie, did you hear that metafilter dude on boing boing?

    12. Ape Lad ages ago | reply

      I suspect he did hear it.
      My wife worked for a company that was very much based on Rand's philosophies. Their company newspaper was even called the "Galt Global Review."

      please.

    14. RobertSyrett ages ago | reply

      Sybil is pronouncing it the way Objectivists pronounce it: Ayn rhymes with mine.
