QotD, I Can’t Eexactly Argue This Edition.

Cracked.com, as part of one of its list posts.

In DuckTales, every single episode is basically about Scrooge and the nephews hunting for treasure or protecting Scrooge’s money or diving into giant swimming pools of coins (something that almost certainly would have happened in [Atlas] Shrugged had it not been cut to make room for 25,000 words about the tensile strength of railroad tracks).

Ayn Rand really, really needed an editor.

    I used to think like you. However I’m actually re-reading Atlas Shrugged right now after putting it down as “unreadable” 10 years ago, and I can’t put the bloody thing down. It is a really compelling read.

  • Wombat-socho says:

    BigGator, I think part of the attraction is that it’s basically one train wreck after another, metaphorically and literally.
