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.'"

Very. Well done.

I'm going to be spending most of this year attaching carbo-fluorine chains to an Iridium complex to protect it from water whilst it's in a solar cell.

That sounds useful and valuable.

I'm going to be studying dead languages, reading primitive literature and memorising mindless historical details nobody cares about.

Indeed, and by going to Cambridge you can freeze to death in their shooting range or do as a club mate did and almost knock yourself out. (Seriously though I don't know what you thought EoJ if you went to it but that range is freezing. Also a risk to heads).

It's under a road bridge , you have to shoot past all the supporting pillars, so in winter when they hold their leg it gets fairly cold.

Some of the colleges there look like they'd be freezing in the winter, with all the stone cloisters and quads.

I'm taking up Latin this year to replace my miserable failure in A level Maths. I did pretty well at everything else though

They used to get a ton of practice, but now with Rangers out of the top tier of the Scottish Football leagues, there are less Old Firm matches, which means a decline in standards I'm afraid.

Modern. More materials for it. It's surprisingly easy when you get past the alphabet, but my vocab is about 10 words so far

Yes, it is easy to learn ten words of a language.

All the same I'd agree with your point. All Indo-European languages are really very similar in terms of basic grammar - once you've studied one any of the others will come much more easily, and obviously the closer they are within the family the easier.
