The Man with the Laughs





Gooooooooood-byyyyyyye Vietnaaaaam! That's right, I'm history... I'm outta here. I got the lucky ticket home, baby. Rollin, rollin, rollin'... keep them wagons rollin', rawhide! Yeah, that's right... the final Adrian Cronauer broadcast... and this one is brought to you by our friends at the Pentagon. Remember the people who brought you Korea? That's right, the U.S. Army. If it's being done correctly, here or abroad, it's probably not being done by the Army.







In honor of Robin Williams, I've decided to forsake the rules and simple post a lot of what made him special to us: his humor and ability to make us laugh!!


Genie: [turns into a cheerleader] Rick 'em, rack 'em, rock 'em, rake! Stick that sword into that snake!
Jafar: You stay out of this!
Genie: [Weakly] Jafar, Jafar, he's our man; if he can't do it, great!

When Christopher Reeve was in the hospital after his accident, Robin came to visit him. Reeve said this about that surprise visit:
Then, at an especially bleak moment, the door flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent. He announced that he was my proctologist, and that he had to examine me immediately...it was Robin Williams...for the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay.
When Stephan Spielberg was filming "Schindler's List", Robin would call him to cheer him up. I think I only called him once, maybe twice. I called him when I was representing People for the Valdheimers Association. A society devoted to helping raise money to help older Germans who had forgotten everything before 1945. I remember him laughing and going 'thank you.'"

That really sucks, Pitt. Condolences.

Someone broke into my house once. Once. They are still finding parts of him out in the forest now and again. (At least in my very fertile imagination, for any of you police-types lurking about, he he)

Had you a back-up on an external drive elsewhere? Maybe not all of your data and pics are then lost...

Also, a big and not very friendly dog is quite effective in keeping unwelcomed (and some welcomed) guests out of a chamber. Given you live in Straya, I am sure there are other equally effective beasts one can use.

Sorry to hear about that Pitt

I was robbed at gunpoint a few years back, but it wasn't as bad as it could've been since 3 of my close friends were with me and thus were also robbed. Nowadays we just talk about it and joke how we all nearly crapped our pants when he shot at our feet. Misery loves company I guess

That sucks Pitt, as too the friendly dog point, I'd recommend a male German Shepard if you can afford on simply because they are intimidating to delinquents.

Also, I'm sure I don't have to tell you this but make sure to change any passwords that you may have saved immediately, as people are assholes.

I don't save passwords for websites (except this one ...). But I might change a few anyway.

I have an external hard drive, which they appear not to have noticed (sometimes a mess is a good thing). But I haven't backed anything up to it for a good six months or so. And there's probably a good deal of stuff on the old computer that hasn't been backed up either. Very inconvenient.

We have three dogs. Fat lot of good that was. But it may have happened when they were being taken for a walk. Or when they were out in the back garden and my dad was in the shed.

I'm thinking of planting land mines, hiding claymores (not the swords) or digging a moat.

What a pity Pitt... I hope that the thieves are found and your computers are retrieved (nearly impossible if your legal system is similar to ours). Building a wooden keep could solve your problems though, at least it's not likely to forget about it and blow yourself up (mines can do that)...

Why is Steam so frustratingly difficult to change passwords on?

I can't seem to do it by logging in through a web browser. Surely it can't be that the only way to access a change password option is by downloading Steam.

The empty barrel award should be renamed as the 'full' barrel, since we have enough people missed to fill up any storage device- medieval or modern.

The Empty Barrel is missing its most important component- its contents. Namely, beer. It is not simply a storage device. When we have no beer, we miss it more than when we do have beer. Thus, the Empty Barrel Award symbolizes those that we miss, not this place where we gather.

I'll stick to voting this time around. Memory is fuzzy about what and who was posting roughly 5 months ago.

As a side note, anyone else see this little gem? Pick any date from history, and it'll show you the world map. Not perfect, as there are so many different sides to who owned what and when, but I find it pretty nifty. To go into BC times, use the negative (-) symbol.

Australian political news update:

- the Australian Capital Territory* passes a same sex marriage law
- the Commonwealth (i.e. federal) government challenges it in the High Court because it's inconsistent with the (Commonwealth) Marriage Act
- the ACT rejects a Commonwealth request to delay authorising same sex marriages until the court rules
- a number of people marry in the ACT
- the High Court unanimously rules the ACT's legislation is invalid, because it's inconsistent with Commonwealth legislation
- the internet goes wild with ignoramuses who think: a) the court has held marriage can only ever be between a man and a woman, and good on them for recognising that;** or
b) the High Court has broken people's hearts.

* Analogous to Washington DC; not a State but a territory.
** The irony being that if the court had held that, the ACT's same sex marriage laws would not have been struck down.
