Who is John Galt?

I open the Holiday edition of the Signals catalog and on pg 47 is the sweatshirt every member of this forum should own. Black with Who Is John Galt? in stark white.

I, however, still think he's a 14 year old boy whose voice hasn't quite changed yet.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Judy

Hi Judy! Pretty cute!

Just so you know, I have had women say to me
"My God, I could listen to you all night!" I am not
making this up. Yeah, it's been quite a party

Hi BUM..............Yeah, I have quite a few
"pretenders to the throne" out there. In fact,
every so often someone says "Hey, are you the same
John Galt that posts over at ......................?"

As I am sure you know my alias is taken from Ayn Rand's magnum opus, 'Atlas Shrugged'. When I was
single and dating, I found a woman whose e-mail address was based on the main character in Ayn
Rand's first novel. I was intrigued and eventually asked her out with the highest of expectations. Long story short, it was my worst experience ever on a date. Maybe hers too

My theory is he is the reincarnation of the guy who was Atilla the Hun's Carl Rove.

Or maybe Ernest Hemingway....

Re: Who is John Galt?

And another thing.............(hey, a title for my memoirs?)

On another site, I am described (by myself) as a smaller
version of Rush Limbaugh or Tony Soprano, without the tact. Yeah, it's cute.........pretty accurate too.

Are you sure that you are a smaller version of an illegal drug taking flim flap BS "artiste" or an irrational mobster sex crazed psychopathic killer?

Re: Who is John Galt?

Well, since you put it that way

I see many similar personality traits in both
"characters", thus my somewhat tongue-in-cheek
description of my own self. They both overcome obvious flaws to dominate their environments.
Besides, let he that is without sin...........................
