"You say that my way of thinking cannot be tolerated? What of it? The man who alters his way of thinking to suit others is a fool. My way of thinking is the result of my reflections. It is part of my inner being, the way I am made. I do not contradict them, and would not even if I wished to. For my system, which you disapprove of, is also my greatest comfort in life, the source of all my happiness --- it means more to me than my life itself." --- Count Donatien Alphonse Francois de Sade

"My philosophy, in essence, is the concept of man as a heroic being, with his own happiness as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievements as his noblest activity, and reason as his only absolute." --- Ayn Rand

Hi there and welcome to my home page!

Let me tell you a little about myself. I live in Pittsburgh PA. (a nice place to live, but you wouldn't want to visit...unless, of course, you are visiting someone who lives here..) I work in Oakland for the Test Monitoring Center. We are the people who set the standards for oil in the the industry... You know "This oil meets or exceeds so and so standards...."

Warning... I'm strange. Well at least not normal. Guess what, I'm proud of the fact. BTW... I use alot of ellipses when I write. oh, and if you cannot think of more than one way to spell something, then you lack imagination. (paraphrased from Ben Franklin)

I believe people are people, not some conglomeration of race, gender, religion, whatever. If nothing else, people are their philosophy, and i enjoy hearing about them. Mine is summed up with different phrases in different religions. "Do as thou will, an it harm none" is basically the same as "Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you". (Of course, what if you are a masochist?) Tell me about your thoughts.
