    Here's one related nugget...
    Ayn Rand says, "Wealth is the product of man's capacity to think." and yet...

    The (Lack Of) Relationship Between Intelligence And Wealth

    Correlation Between IQ and Net Worth (Wealth)

    So why is that assumption fundamentally flawed? A neutral observer may perceive the answer.
    Well - I would say - having read all of her books - that I know are out there - I liked The Fountainhead. This objectivism is pretty much crazy stuff. I did like the speech at the end of the Fountainhead. Still, I think she is a good example of an excessive and obsessive INTJ. Complete loon I think.

    He might have been feral, but he was one of the most played characters, and I think found his mother at story's end.
    At least they weren't forced to have stretchy limbs like India's Dhalsim.

    But don't you see: that's just their post-colonial master's hegemonic narrative aimed at subverting the natives' natural dignity and displacing it with the role of the perennial infant! Didn't you see that his mother was white! And had blonde hair and blue eyes! And why was I thinking like this at 8 yrs old!?!

    I have Sagat for my nationality. He was pretty cool. I'm pretty sure though no actual 7'4" Thai guys exist.
