Still, these are all Randian Übermenschen und frauen, who firmly believe that cut-throat, unregulated competition strengthens both a nation's economy and her people, so let's take these glamour shots and hold a beauty contest!
I'll arrange the portraits by category, and you vote for the winner in each one -- and feel free to come up with your own (and no doubt better) captions. Ready? (If not, you can just skip to the cat pictures below.)

Question: Where Do You Want to Be in Five Years? Leading the unexamined life.
Category #2: Miss Old Man and the Sea

Question: Where Do You Want to Be in Five Years? Enjoying the sweet release of death.
Okay, that's it for Round One. Please cast your ballots in Comments, and best of luck to all of our lovely contestants!
