    i get so depressed about my weight

    Look, granny panties don't flatter any ass type. Get yourself some boy shorts or a nice thong.

    it's not even that i don't like the way i look

    it's that sometimes my craving for shit food is indescribably intense and, in talking myself out of indulging, i legitimately think "i'd rather die than get fat again"

    like, the concept of going back to 300 lbs makes me mildly suicidal

    I think you need to find another way to deal with those cravings.

    He's treated like that in the book, though (well, as a "Good Guy", not a villain). He's held up as an ideal, not a real person. He's a two dimensional character.

    If it's one thing Hollywood is good at it's framing criminals as heroes.

    I just want movie John Galt to be like, a straight up stereotypical Mexican, with an oversized sombrero, a maraca in each hand, and a terribly sequined mariachi uniform.

    That way Objectivists can deal with their latent racism in a productive manner

    There's this homeless dude who hangs out near the grocery store next to my house a lot of evenings. We have I guess a rapport. I give him change and he talks to me for a few minutes and is very polite. I am on a waiting list to volunteer at a place near my house, it just sucks to see people in that situation and be powerless about it.

    Sort of glad the holidays are over as I can

    a) Get back to work
    b) Get out of my redneck shit hole of a home town
    c) Go to the grocery store without listening to the girl the Salvation Army hired violently flagellate her bell while texting her BFF.

    I think I might go to the makeup store in Yorkdale and be like "listen I have dolla to spend but I am 20 years old and don't know anything about makeup, halp."

    But the makeup store is MAC and I'm afraid they'll make me look like a whore.

    The worst thing I can think of is when someone is not given at least an opportunity to succeed in life. I don't know his history but I will assume he became homeless not of his own faults.

    Everybody in that book is a two-dimensional character.

    My mom has taken on the habit to not wait between knocking on my door and opening it. She tends to do this late in the evening after I said good night.

    This is by far the best way for her to make me wish I lived on my own.

    Sephora carries like umpteen thousand brands, from what I've seen of makeup places that might be the place to go for maximizing options for helpful staff to steer you towards.

    Also the one around here has gay dudes, they're always super nice and helpful

    Thanks, passerbye. Also I'm sorry because I just realized that was a post and didn't encourage conversation, so uh...

    I'm just gonna go stop by the alcohol thread and try to educate myself, because all I've learned from 5 semesters of college is about crappy beer and that straight vodka is nasty.

    Okay thank you for the recommendation. I went to a place near my house and there was this dude who was like "WELL YOU NEED FOUNDATION, IS YOUR SKIN OILY OR DRY?" and I was like "...Neither?" and we went back and forth before I decided he was trying to push shit I didn't need on me.

    You can understand someone's motives but not defend them. It's okay Mazzyx. I mean, we all understand where Reagan's worldview came from, but it's not like I will defend the guy.

    Yes. I had no idea this was even a possible issue or I would have plugged in the old clock radio.

    Well, in philosophical novels this is more often the case, that archetypes are used. Most people who subscribe to Ayn Rand's newsletter never got the memo that these weren't supposed to be real characters, unfortunately.

    If you want to hear something nuts go look I think its the 1948 Democratic convention. Reagan was a speaker. Its like listening to the twilight zone.
