ZeldaHanson, This is a question for you; I've always wondered: What is Atlas standing on if he has the world on his shoulders?

Ha! It isn't supposed to be taken literally.

Haven't you ever heard of the book Atlas Shrugged? Read it and you'll have the answer to your question.

Oh! So that's what it's all about... I've not read Atlas Shrugged, but it's now on my list... probably after I finish The Alhambra.
