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 have never heard it before; and I'm from the US, where we speak proper English.

My linguistic -- I was going to say "pet peeve," but a peeve is a minor annoyance; so I'm going to go with your phrase -- pet hate is when people create a verb from a noun form, rather than the root. The most common example is the -ates: orientate, notate, and so on. These are not real words. You orient someone or note something. He was not orientated; he was oriented. Irregardless *grrr* really gets me, too, though. In written English, it irks me to no end when I see people use apostrophes to denote plural, rather than possession.

Actually, only the burning of public buildings. Private property was spared (unlike the American burning of York).

personally my favorite part of that story was the freak tornado that came after and effectively gave the Brits a tossing about.

so has anyone been following the US PRISM story on how the government can follow your every internet move without a warrant based on an algorithm that only is 51% accurate. They can even see your search inquiries as you type them.

Proper English is correct English according to English people. Duh. American English is quite technically nothing more than a regional dialect group which happens to belong to a country with greater geopolitical influence than the motherland.

... heheheh.

I thought someone was using a Jed Mind Trick on me at first, but my doubt was quickly replaced with joy and euphoria. Can't wait to put down the Rebel scum and bring The Empire to glory all over again

So what are everyone's thoughts on the Playstation 4 and Sony's strategy?

I've always been a supporter of Sony, even fanboyish at times, but in my opinion they simply curbstomped Microsoft and the Xbox One. The PS4 doesn't need to connect to the internet for regular authentication, can play used games, no restrictions on sharing games you own with your friends, has higher specs than the Xbox One and it's $100 cheaper.

Yep, I know what I'm getting for myself for Christmas
