Oh, irony. It tastes so good any time of day...

College for Ayn Rand Devotees Closes Due to Financial Problems

and, from The Chronicle of Higher Education, a more in-depth and funny-but-sad description of the whole fiasco...

Quote:
However, not all of the students who would end up at Founders knew that. English Tong, who was home-schooled, found out about the college through a friend who had heard Mr. Hull promote Founders as ideal for home-schoolers. "Not until I arrived did I realize it was an objectivist school, so I was thrown into that without really agreeing with it," Ms. Tong says. "It was kind of weird. They had advertised the college to everyone differently."

Haaay, that reminds me! Remember the Ron Paul guy on the old boards? And how we got him to admit that he attends a California state university? Good times.

He was a two-trick pony: Ron Paul and giant food. Remember that veggie burger that was as big as manhole cover?

I never got to read his Ron Paul rants. I just remember his subnick being "the ron paul guy" and a giant veggie burger, oh and one thread titled "Hello, socialism" that inspired multiple fake profiles.

He also had a thread where he tried to rehydrate banana chips, failing to realize that they had been fried.

But he had P personality.
