Hahahaha... That's like a friend of mine not wanting to join one particular gym because they didn't offer his favoured brand of potato chips as refreshments.

Soon some other gym will be offering free muffins and brownies....

Bidu,

Well, that is one good reason to join that gym.

Pratz,

I was planning to read Atlas Shrugged but I couldn’t bring myself to it after reading The Fountainhead

Btw, you should watch the movie .

Trailblazer,
