George Carlin dead

20 posts in this topic

He was the King of comedy in my book, and it is scary because I am only 10 years younger than him. Really makes me feel old.

That is really too bad cause I really liked his style of humor. I have heard a rumor that he had a place up on the north shore that he liked to visit when he wasn't on the road.

I was sad to hear this on the news this morning. Was always one of my favorites.

A little piece of my youth just died yesterday. I feel a few years older now. I think I have every one of George's albumns. I might have to transfer them over to MP3's and listen to the 7 words you can't say on the air one more time. Rest well my funny friend!

One of my favorite comedians of all time. There have been many nights were I have been up late unable to sleep. Hop on Youtube and watch a bunch of carlin videos, eases the mind and after a few I was able to finally hit the sack. He was comedy to me. RIP George.

Probably my favorite comedian, probably because he was funny AND made you think. He found a humurous, yet poignant way of speaking his indpendent mind.

Here's a link to the Hippy Dippy Weather Man and some other of his routines.

That was one of his first famous bits. The comparison of baseball and football is priceless, too funny, and the 7 forbidden words are historic and groundbreaking stuff. Maybe we all should take another listen for old times sake.

I am already ahead of you... As soon as I heard the news I put on his latest album, Life is Worth Losing, in our room. In fact, over the last few months, I have got all of Carlin's albums in MP3 format, and have been playing them in my vehicle when rolling out on missions. I have gotten most of the Polish soldiers and a couple of my Albanian interpreters hooked on Carlin, they were saddened to hear of his passing also.

"And, of course, the funniest food: "kumquats". I don't even bring them home. I sit there laughing and they go to waste." - George Carlin

I laugh every time I read or hear that one. R.I.P. George, the world will never be as funny now that you are gone.

    • By only hot bathing them for 10 minutes max it seems to work! I've heard of the above methods but never did them.
    •   I took the blades back off then buffed them clean with a dremel, oiled them, and touched them up with a lazer hand sharpener.  Not sure if a guy can exchange since they aren't flat.   Added some pics so you can see the curve in them. I think they must be a "jet" blade.  
    • Can't wait to see.....  
    • Grape leaves are said to also help.  
    • We would add 1/8 of a teaspoon of Alum to make the pickles stay crisper.
    • We actually put a hitch onto ice castle and pulled 2  wheelers. It worked pretty well. 
    •   If nothing else bring the old ones in closer to ice time so they don't rust up again and have one of the bait store guys send them in to their blade sharpener exchange guys.
    •   How do you keep them crispy? I bought a jar of homemade Hot ones at a farmers market which were good and hot, but limpy?
    • Rain soaked major portions of the state for yet another week, with much concentrated in the southwestern region. This has kept area lakes and rivers high and flowing water moving fast. Several properties in the southwest are still dealing with storm damage. Badger State Trail has some closed sections and areas with standing water. The Sugar River State Trail is usable but needs resurfacing at various locations. Mountain bike trails remain closed at Blue Mound and horse trails and the horse camp at Wildcat Mountain remain closed. All roads have reopened at Wyalusing and Nelson Dewey state parks, but some trails in both parks remain closed.Fishing pressure waxed and waned with the weather this past week. Northern pike, bass and musky continue to be caught on the Flambeau River. Anglers on inland lakes have been reporting success for panfish, bass and walleyes.Anglers were out in force though the weekend on Green Bay many brought out by a walleye tournament. Walleye fishing was relatively consistent, with most boats catching at least a couple fish. The bass bite has slowed along Door County with the best success coming from piers, but perch anglers were having some luck over the past week with most boats harvesting more than 10 fish for half a day's trip. Trout and salmon fishing was beginning to pick up off Marinette on the west shore of the bay but trout and salmon off the Door County side were struggling to find fish. .
    •   That is what I'm wondering.......I found some 8in "jiffy" blades on the bay of e. However it doesn't say anything about them being jet blades and couldn't tell on the pictures if it looked like a slight curve in them..........they were in the package so a decent side view was about impossible. Somebody has to have had one...
