    Ayn Rand spent 12 years writing Atlas Shrugged.....so she saw it in 1945.

    Wonder if she lived a full life after publishing? Makes one wonder how it was even published.

    She died in 1988, IIRC. How full a life...well....

    I don't think she lived what I would call a happy life. but she certainly lived HER life.

    I think it is a war. One side is fighting that war every day and the other side not only doesn't know there is a war, they are getting their butts kicked every day.


    @Flock:
    Ayn Rand died destitute and poor. Her book was not very well received and sold very few copies. It wasn't until the 1970's, when sales took off.

    She died in 1982, Leonard Pleikoff inherited her copyrights. Yes, she knew of Nikola Tesla, he was part of the fiction of the mad scientist with the "Death Ray."

    Speaking of Nikola Tesla, have you or anyone else heard of the project he had worked on to distribute electricity wirelessly? Well, a company and Baylor college have picked up his research and have already built test equipment that can be seen off of I-35 east north of Hillsboro and south of Italy. Maybe I need to start a new thread about it.

    There is a new Tesla Museum opening here on Long Island. I visited his lab years before it happened. The site was basically just a building in a bad state of repair with a lot of graffiti and peeling paint. Still, I felt humbled to walk where he had his lab.

    They tore that spaceship building down and built a McDonalds in its place. Itís absolutely horrible! Ohh, and there is now a huge Pilot truck stop across the street from where the spaceship was. I go through there quit often.


    When Iíve got more than a few seconds to make a quick post Iíll make a new thread about it.




    I would absolutely love to see where Nikola actually did all of his work. Maybe one day Iíll get back up there to the north east. Maybe.
