George Carlin, R.I.P.

Oh, sad, sad day.  George Carlin died yesterday at about 6 p.m. in Los Angeles.  Heart Problems, which had been ongoing.

Dammit, I’m going to miss him and his Stuff.

Do you remember his “Seven Filthy Words?”   A regulatory battle raged over his radio broadcast of the “Filthy Words” routine and ultimately made it to the U.S. Supreme Court.

George Carlin, RIP

Airplane Etiquette

ELBONICS (el bon’iks) n
The actions of two people maneuvering for one armrest in an airplane


I have a question for you if you fly much:

Who gets the armrests where?  Does the middle guy get both armrests because he’s stuck in the middle? Is there an unwritten rule about it that has yet to be disclosed to me?

I spend entire flights with my elbows pressed into my sides because I can’t decide what to do with my arms.
