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.'"

I looked at Greek, but it was Greek to me.
Tell me about it... I've been learning the language for the past 17 years and I'm still discovering new words every day.
As for other languages, I think English are far easier than German...

Jax- carried over from the Census thread.
My main worry about being 17 would be the fact that clubbing (or bars or casinos or whatever) is off the cards - we went out 3-4 times a week in first year (when I made all my friends) and bouncers in student areas are always awful at ID'ing everyone.
University of London Union has a club night every Friday, where they only ask for student ID - clearly a deliberate policy so as not too exclude their under-18 minority, because everywhere else in the city that's not enough. Same at the union bars. However, on once occasion I did manage to get into Proud with just my student card - pretty sure it was the bow-tie and tailcoat that did it... up until that point everyone was saying it was the hardest club in London to get into without proper ID.
How come you dropped out?
I was doing archaeology, and I wanted to do something with a bit of literature. So I tried the other thing I had debated doing previously, which was Anglo-Saxon Norse & Celtic at Cambridge, which I knew I basically couldn't fail to get into because it's so unusual and I could prove a very strong interest. I left as soon as possible to save on fees.
EDIT: Although I guess your 18th would be ****ing awesome.
I only did two terms (all the teaching is done in the first two terms, the third is just for exams); so I dropped out at the end of March - my birthday's in May. I did manage to persuade my parents to pay for me to come back up to London to celebrate with my friends. Pretty fun... although I might have got a bit too drunk a bit too early. Crashed with a platonic friend. Nice, but not that exciting.

Good man.
Exactly. I mean, I've only really watched a couple of shows because I've made a couple of friends who happen to watch a bit, but they view it as entertainment rather than something to, well, have to go to a Society for. You don't need to pay a membership fee to the Guild if you just want to go climbing with friends.

Also, those societies sound awful. I'm one of the most sad obsessed people I know when it comes to Doctor Who but the very idea of a Whovian Society repels me, so God only knows what an Anime soc would be.

We have a Northerner society in Brum too. And a Welsh society. What the hell is the point in them?

Ah, nice. The union-run clubs I've been to have always required both student ID and actual ID, no matter what. This was in Leeds and Hull though, and even in the case of Leeds I aren't sure they have a serious enough number of U-17s to need to make exceptions for them (although I could be totally wrong here).
ame at the union bars. However, on once occasion I did manage to get into Proud with just my student card - pretty sure it was the bow-tie and tailcoat that did it...
Sometimes you luck out. Generally found if you look like a decent group (in the way you act, not in how you dress) you were less likely to have to show ID.

Makes sense.

How did you end up a year ahead? As in - what are the mechanics of that? I know people who sat exams a year early, but don't know anyone who literally had a whole different set of classes (or enough extra classes) to be able to have enough qualifications to get into university at 17.

I don't watch a lot, but I like anime. I like people who watch it. I like people who go to anime society when they are not at anime society. Just the actual meetings themselves are awful. A couple of guys at work lived with an Anime Soc guy at Warwick and their experience of it correlates with mine (terrible) - a sample size of 2 is convincing enough for me to say all anime societies are awful.

Yes.

I actually joined Pokemon Society in my 4th year, largely because I geeked out playing Pokemon cards with a hosuemate a lot, but he graduated 3rd year which left me with no one to paly with. Still had fun playing the game, but good god the guys (and gals) who went were awful. There was one "geek" night which was all the geek societies (Comp Soc, Anime Soc, Juggling Soc etc etc - quite a broad range) going on a night out and it was possibly the worst night out I've ever been on.

I believe a girl in my year was offered to skip up a year, but she decided it would be better for her to take the slow path- she very easily could have done it, she was brilliant in the sciences and damn near amazing in everything else except humanities.

But I believe you can do quite a lot outside of school time even if you don't get formally bumped up a year. She had a full A level in Latin by lower sixth.
Juggling Soc
Heh, the Circus soc here seem to be fairly solid- a bit weird and prone to riding penny farthings and unicycles to lectures (it's a common site here) but the Archery club have strong links with them, and each year we run a "have a go session" where we teach them to shoot, and they teach us how to juggle with fire.

I think I'm quite lucky- I seem to have a fair amount of people staying around during my 4th year.
