Says the guy who "lost his shit after January 20, 2009."
(Or, am I the guy who shit his pants on 9/11 and spent the entire GWOT behind the safety of his monitor?  I can never remember.)

"He was born with the gift of laughter and the sense that the world was mad."

His scenes as the drill sergeant in Full Metal Jacket were terrific.

IMDB trivia describes how he got the role from Stanley Kubrick:

R. Lee Ermey went to director Stanley Kubrick and asked for the role of Gunnery Sgt. Hartmann. In his opinion, the actors on the set were not up to snuff. When Kubrick declined, Ermey barked an order for Kubrick to stand up when he was spoken to, and the director instinctively obeyed. Ermey got the role.

Maybe he gave him the part so he could have him shot and get away with it...

Clever!

FC,

I've been thinking about how I can respond conversationally without coming across as a total dick.
