A is A

sumanah liked the Satanist joke in the last entry, so I thought I’d mention revdj‘s quote: “Satanists are Libertarians who realized that they were not going to get sex by quoting Ayn Rand to women in their twenties.”

Everyone loves Ayn Rand, of course, but I can see his point. It occurs to me that someone could do a Forum 2000 clone on LJ by creating appropriately named accounts. Unfortunately, both aynrand and ayn_rand already exist, and in any case, you just can’t get the bored CMU grad students these days.

  1. So did you find any Satannic evangelists (sic) for me to compete with for your attention?

    More to the point what sort of competition were you thinking of: chess? fiddling? poker? Erm, ballroom dancing? 😉 Or just plain old rational discourse?

    1. Is a Satanic Evangelist a bit like a Satanic Mechanic, only with fewer tools?

      I’d be a Satanic Evangelist if I weren’t too bust being a Theravada Buddhist.

      1. So….what is a Theravada Buddhist? (More interested in how it affects your life, rather than the metaphysical framework)

        My brief wanderings round the internet seem to suggest that being “skillful” is a big part of it, but I’m not too sure what that means!
