The Unapologetic Mathematician

Mathematics for the interested outsider

Screw you, George

George Carlin is dead at 71. Since any appropriate words would be inappropriate here, I’ll just say “good riddance”. I think he would have, too.

  1. Epitaph more optimally consists of precisely 7 words….

    “I love words. I thank you for hearing my words. I want to tell you something about words that I uh, I think is important. I love… as I say, they’re my work, they’re my play, they’re my passion. Words are all we have really.”

    “We have thoughts, but thoughts are fluid. You know, [humming]. And, then we assign a word to a thought, [clicks tongue]. And we’re stuck with that word for that thought. So be careful with words. I like to think, yeah, the same words that hurt can heal. It’s a matter of how you pick them.”

    “There are some people that aren’t into all the words. There are some people who would have you not use certain words. Yeah, there are 400,000 words in the English language, and there are seven of them that you can’t say on television. What a ratio that is. 399,993 to seven. They must really be bad. They’d have to be outrageous, to be separated from a group that large. All of you over here, you seven. Bad words. That’s what they told us they were, remember? ‘That’s a bad word.’ ‘Awwww.’ There are no bad words. Bad thoughts. Bad Intentions.”

    “nd words, you know the seven don’t you? [1],[2],[3],[4],[5],[6],[7]. Those are the heavy seven. Those are the ones that will infect your soul, curve your spine and keep the country from winning the war.”

    CONGRESS, sexual or otherwise.
    ‘SHALL’ has greater force than Will.
    MAKE, and the maker is a poet.
    NO — what part of ‘No’ escapes your eyes?

    LAW … of Euclid, law of science, still
    ABRIDGING the red flag of disguise.
    THE “absurd and immature antic”
    FREEDOM, degrees of freedom
    OF ‘copyright, defamation, privacy’
    SPEECH is obscene when well, when you know it
    OR theft, when the black flag is piracy.

    OF “false, scandalous and malicious”, frantic
    THE life or death, whose freedom is mooted
    PRESS ‘enter’ and be executed.
