Quote from: cthulhubunny on July 29, 2008, 08:38:11 AMIt reminded me of that scene in The Meaning of Life where the board of directors are being told what the Meaning of Life is, and after the explanation, one of them goes "now what was that about hats?"..so sad..

Quote from: Spikegirl on August 05, 2008, 04:30:48 PMIt's a well known fact that snoory does his show with a mouthful of marbles. It's in his contract.

Quote from: Michael Vandeven on August 07, 2008, 01:26:01 AMi know i'm stepping out on a limb with this, but haven't most of those cryogenically frozen people died of... um... death?i think that's actually what they're trying to cure.phan... it's great to see your show rundowns back in action. this place wasn't/isn't/wouldn't be the same without them.
Quote from: mikemcc on August 07, 2008, 11:15:17 AMI know I have, in other posts, said that I believe George is stupid; well, I don't believe he's the smartest tack in the box, but I doubt that he is downright stupid, either. (Though there have been times people have talked to him about fairly simple issues and George just can't get it.) I think that most of his problems come from being ill-prepared for most shows.
Quote from: Camazotz Automat on August 07, 2008, 09:49:49 AMTo be a candidate for cryogenic storage, one must not become brain dead? but rather, suffer a cardiac death, which leaves the brain tissue viable for a longer period for harvesting - some say up to 16 mins before irreparable protein damage, some say 8 hours. If the former, then ALCOR better be at your side when you kick the bucket fantastic.
Quote from: Meegle on August 07, 2008, 02:38:45 PMYeah I know it seems petty to post on his inability to speak and lack of synapses firing correctly in his brain but....I would like a better host. It's unnerving to me that I like the subject matter most of the time and the host (Ian sometimes as well) just doesn't seem present. Too often I hear George's references come from "movies" that seem like a child's reference to me especially when something I find very interesting being discussed. Believe I dislike George for oh so much more than his mush-mouthed slurrings. SO MUCH MORE. But as I'm new to this board I figured I'd start small.
Quote from: Spikegirl on August 07, 2008, 02:51:22 PMFeel free to let you hair down!
QuoteSOOOOO many times George will refer to a movie like it is his only frame of reference. It not only sounds childlike, but at his age, STUPID. I expect much more from a 59 year old man. George Noory reminds me of Forrest Gump. Except Forrest was likeable and had some common sense. The other night, George actually asked a guest if humans turn into werewolves "like in the Hollywood movies".
QuoteIt doesn't help when George himself adds fodder to the flame by telling A NATIONAL AUDIENCE about driving off from a gas station with the hose still in his gas tank. That's right, he was so busy talking to Tommy on his cell phone, that George drove off, hose firmly ensconced in tank, and ripped the nozzle out of the pump. Nice going George. You'd think you'd keep that to yourself.
Quote from: EvB on August 07, 2008, 06:50:57 PMWhat SHE said! Fuck the small stuff. Go for the gold.Now, you see, THAT is the kind of comment that makes me think, not so much that he is stupid, but that he is condescending, and thinks WE are stupid. Okay - I fess up - I thought that was FUNNY! It sounds like something I'd do. DUH!-OH!
