We might have to start a R.I.P. thread for former president Bush too, if he keeps this crazy stuff up:



Skydiving on his 80th birthday...   :o  Not bad!

I didn't agree with this man's politics again, but Pappy Bush skydiving at 80's not too shabby.  Good for him.

Bush's plane was shot down in WW2, and they have footage of him being rescued in the Pacific.  He's no stranger to harrowing dives from the sky (controlled or otherwise).

There was some rumble (wishful thinking perhaps) they would make a 1:18 scale plane of his with a figure of him as a young man.  Even as a Democrat I'd pick that set up!

Just wanted to point out a stuipid comment that a  reporter on a local news program said about Bush skydriving.  

"As you may know Bush had to bail out of his Jet in World War 2."  ::)

If I remember right his plane was a Dive Bomber or Toperdo Plane and he was shot down in a 1943 Battle which makes him having a jet historical since that would mean the Americans first used a jet bomber rather then the Germans.

I have two questions:

1) Is Reagan in the ground yet? I'd really like to see what else is going on in the world, but I unplugged my TV last week after getting sick of seeing his death covered as "news." It's not like foul play was suspected. (Or was it? I'm out of the loop.)

2) How many Democrats does it take to push a Republican ex-President out of an airplane?

Post sober.

0, they do it willingly themselves from guilt?

Darth Kenobi,

I believe it was a Torpedoe plane if I'm not mistaken, but I may not be correct.  It's been a while I guess.

The Jet remark was funny though...  :)  Nice to see someone knows nothing of history.

Just heard on the Radio the big guy died...Rest In Peace.  I was reading the other day he's been living in a 1 room bungalow thanks to being $20,000,000 in debt and had hid his Oscars.

Brando Dead At 80

On The Waterfront is one hell of a movie and then there is his little role in The Godfather.  Also dug his performance in A Streetcar Name Desire "Stellaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!"

Rest in Peace Marlon, you've earned it

Oh yeah ::)

It's not like he's been acting in anything for a while now.  I still get weirded out thinking about The Island of Doctor Moreau.



He was in some of the greatest movies of all time back in the day so that can't be denied
