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.

George Carlin was the best comedian their was and ever will be. I have had the chance to see him live twice. R.I.P. George, no one will ever compare to you!

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.

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
