  • Movies As A Religious Experience

    There's obviously no such thing as a soul. There's no mystical "true self" ghost in our bodies. (That's nihilistic, to place value beyond our actual selves and bodies, beyond reality.) And we don't transcend reality by changing, we simply change. We are bugs on a rock in space, hopping a... read more »

    Ok, I see now it is supposed to be a comma in between not a semi-colon. Uhh, jquery and untold brackets and semi-colons and commas... Thanks! Btw, my 2 comments above now say "Matt" made them. Something messed up there.... read more »

  • jQuery Events: MouseOver / MouseOut vs. MouseEnter / MouseLeave

    Posted on Apr 20, 2010 at 3:21 AM

    No, it is snapping back without any further mouse movement, while still hovering - it should animate (not snap) back only when the mouse no longer hovers over the div. Hover doesn't seem to work right, or not intuitively right anyway. Are you sure hover is using MouseEnter/MouseLeave? I think it mu... read more »

    Any idea why this animates properly then - with no extra mouse movement - jumps back to the starting position a moment later? Does the same on mouseout to0. $('#banner').hover(function(){ $(this).animate({backgroundPosition:"-250px 0"}); $(this).animate({backgroundPosition:"0 0"}); }); I've read... read more »

    >>Academia is full of liberals who abhor Ayn Rand. Like all the phil profs doing "conservatives" like Plato, Kant, Heidegger, Strauss, etc? Philosophy - which she claims to do - has nothing to do with the quotidian disputes of US politics. >>universities that have tried to setup cent... read more »

    Ayn Rand is a joke within philosophy. How anyone intelligent can waste time on her simplistic dichotomies is baffling. She's like a hooker who read some JS Mill between tricks.... read more »

    >>If it is just a few users, the session timeout is not the issue. Maybe they are not accepting cookies. Yes, only some users, but enough. I recall they were on regular browsers.

  • Finally Finished Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged Audio Book

    Posted on Jun 19, 2007 at 12:24 AM

    Probably a quote from Rand because it's a illogical bastardization of Kant's Categorical Imperative ("Act in such a way that you treat humanity, whether in your own person or in the person of any other, always at the same time as an end and never simply as a means"), which is in turn an abstraction ... read more »

    >>Bullshit. The highest virtue of human existence is to help other people. Well, that's bullshit too. There is no "highest" virtue for humanity. (By whom exactly was it determined? How? And for whom?) I hope you realize that Ayn Rand, though fun to read once, is a joke within philosophy. St... read more »
