George Carlin - He's more powerful than you can ever imagine

George Denis Patrick Carlin (May 12, 1937–June 22, 2008)was an American stand-up comedian, actor and author who won four Grammy Awards for his comedy albums.

Carlin was especially noted for his political and black humor and his observations on language, psychology, and religion along with many taboo subjects. Carlin and his "Seven Dirty Words" comedy routine were central to the 1978 U.S. Supreme Court case F.C.C. v. Pacifica Foundation, in which a narrow 5–4 decision by the justices affirmed the government's right to regulate "indecent" material on the public airwaves.

In the 2000s, Carlin's stand-up routines focused on the flaws in modern-day America. He often took on contemporary political issues in the United States and satirized the excesses of American culture.

He placed second on the Comedy Central cable television network list of the 10 greatest stand-up comedians, ahead of Lenny Bruce and behind Richard Pryor.[21] He was a frequent performer and guest host on The Tonight Show during the three-decade Johnny Carson era, and was also the first person to host Saturday Night Live.

...
Although raised in the Roman Catholic faith, Carlin often denounced the idea of God in interviews and performances, most notably with his "Invisible Man in the Sky" and "There Is No God" routines. In mockery, he invented the parody religion Frisbeetarianism for a newspaper contest. He defined it as the belief that when a person dies "his soul gets flung onto a roof, and just stays there", and cannot be retrieved.

Carlin also joked that he worshipped the Sun, because he could actually see it, but prayed to Joe Pesci (a good friend of his in real life) because "he's a good actor", and "looks like a guy who can get things done!"

Carlin also introduced the "Two Commandments", a revised "pocket-sized" list of the Ten Commandments in his HBO special Complaints and Grievances, ending with the additional commandment of "Thou shalt keep thy religion to thyself.

Geekness

If I have more kids, I am going to call them Ctrl, Alt and Delete. Then if they muck up i will just hit them all at once.

I wish my lawn was emo so it would cut itself.

If my hand could get pregnant, today I would be the father and founder of the third global superpower.

If a man makes a statement in a forest, and there's no woman there to hear it, is he still wrong?

One of those mails

                     NERDS vs JOCKS

In answer to the eternal question "Is it better to be
a jock or a nerd?" I submit the following:

Michael Jordan will make over $300,000 a game:
$10,000 a minute, assuming he averages about 30
minutes per game.

Assuming $40 million in endorsements next year, he'll
be making $178,100 a day (working or not)!

Assuming he sleeps 7 hours a night, he makes $52,000
every night while visions of sugarplums dance in his
head.

If he goes to see a movie, it'll cost him $7.00, but
he'll make $18,550 while he's there.

If he decides to have a 5 minute egg, he'll make $618
while boiling it.

He makes $7,415/hr more than minimum wage (after the
wage hike)

He'll make $3,710 while watching each episode of
Friends.

If he wanted to save up for a new Acura NSX ($90,000)
it would take him a whole 12 hours.

If someone were to hand him his salary and endorsement
money, they would have to do it at the rate of $2.00
every second.

He'll probably pay around $200 for a nice round of
golf, but will be `reimbursed' $33,390 for that
round.

Assuming he puts the federal maximum of 15% of his
income into his tax deferred account (401k), he will
hit the federal cap of $9500 for such accounts at
8:30 a.m. on January 1st, 1997.

If you were given a tenth of a penny for every dollar
he made, you'd be living comfortably at $65,000 a
year.

He'll make about $19.60 while watching the 100 meter
dash in the Olympics.He'll make about $15,600 while
the Boston Marathon is being run.

While the common person is spending about $20 for a
meal in his trendy Chicago restaurant, he'll pull in
about $5600.

Next year, he'll make more than twice as much as all
of our past presidents for all of their terms
combined.

Amazing isn't it? BUT:

JORDAN WILL HAVE TO SAVE 100% OF HIS INCOME FOR 270
YEARS TO HAVE A NET WORTH EQUIVALENT TO THAT OF BILL
GATES.

NERDS RULE! NERDS RULE! NERDS RULE!
