    Widows/Orphans in Big-Font Paragraph
    D. White
    Hi, I'm unsurprisingly experiencing widows and orphans in paragraphs of text with big fonts. If I had a choice, I would reduce the font size, but these font sizes were used in consideration that it will...

    Thanks everyone for all the feedback.

    I have received a copy of the cards and i don't think they are that bad at all - there is no fraying - only when you scratch your nail down the side...

    Behance site is down but I think I was struck by the "chunkiness" of the horse and maybe it looked like he had hairy feet. Might have been the socks and the braided mane too. I must have Budweiser...

    Anyone read this book? I just finished it last night. I'd be delighted to hear what you guys think of it.
    Personally, I liked it, but thought it could use some tightening up here and there.

    Who is John Galt?

    I read it about 12 years ago and remember liking the book but thinking it was long winded.

    "Oooh Benson; you are so mercifully free from the ravages of intelligence."
    I could give you a dose
    but it would never come close
    to the rage built up inside of me
    fist in the air in the land of hypocrisy

      I agree with you. The characters would give 5 page answers to questions. When Galt spoke on the Radio, it was something like 20 pages long!! If he thought people were too stupid to know the cause of their perils, why would he go on a 3 hour long, deeply philosophical, rant about it? I guess an abridged version, however heinous those are perceived to be, would come in handy.

      There's supposed to be a movie in the works. I think that could be a mistake.

        Never read it, but someone offers a huge scholarship every year to someone who writes a good essay on it.
        Try googling it next time...

          Probably the Ayn Rand Institute, JB. The book is an intorduction to some Philosophical system she invented called Objectivism that basically says that a person's worth is measured by how well they do what they do. The oath that the characters take sums it up: 'I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.'

          Anyway, there's apparantly a lot more than just a book now. There's a whole society of sheeple who think like her.
