I think Ms. Rand and my character Oscar the Grouch would have a lot to talk about actually. I am laughing out loud at this idea.
Why would I want to talk to him. What has he achieved or trying to achieve.
He has achieved what I think is the ultimate goal of your way of thinking.
Isolation. Contempt for others. A hard heart. Yet even he can muster a bit of empathy every now and then.
I am not isolated. I have no contempt for others. Millions of people read my books and find my thoughts inspirational. I hardly spend my time on the sidelines in a trash can grumping.
Not yet anyway.
Mars Porn of the Day: NASA has just released a 360-degree interactive panoramic (embiggen image) of Mars, created from footage taken by the Opportunity rover between Dec. 21, 2011, and May 8, 2012, while the rover was stationed on an outcrop of the rim of the ancient Endeavour Crater.
While there are no alien life forms to be found — and, really, it’s pretty much just a tease for what is sure to be amazing footage from the much more technologically advanced Curiosity rover in the weeks to come — we’ll take it.
We now decree today Thrill The Internet day. We’re not sure what to be more excited about, this or the Arrested Development reunion.
Skydiver jumps from a capsule 13 miles high
Felix Baumgartner sits inside a pressurized capsule before his test jump for Red Bull Stratos over Roswell, New Mexico, on March 15, 2012. A hot air balloon lifted the capsule to a height of 13.60 miles over New Mexico which was above the troposphere and within the stratosphere. For his next jump, Baumgartner plans on breaking the world record for the highest jump by traveling 23 miles up into the stratosphere. [Watch video]
