Bob Denver, Gilligan, dies at age 70

By DMambo ·
Bob Denver died today. Now I know this will sound kind of stupid, but I'm feeling a little sad about it. I spent many hours as a kid watching Gilligan's Island, and my friends and I started several projects in my garage based on some of the machines dreamed up by the Professor. We even had an old bike that we used to fill in for the bamboo one that Gilligan used to power everthing.

Do you folks in AUS and GBR know about Gilligan and his band of castaways?

Ah well, there are a lot more serious things to be concerned with. Thanks for listening.

BTW - I was always a "Mary Ann" guy!

I loved that show too...

I bet Jaqui will be really sad...Bob Denver was a celeb proponent of firing up a doob.

RIP, Gilligan.

What were they growing on that island?? Were they stranded in Jamaica?

I hadn't heard that he was pro-smoke. Amazing! Gives a whole new meaning to "headhunters". :)

by jck In reply to Really??

Bob Denver and Dawn Wells (Mary Ann) have both had encounters with the law about pot. And, Denver has expressed in interviews that he doesn't see a big deal with smoking it.

like I've always said

by jck In reply to naw..

If I had been a teen in the '60s, I'd have been thin as a stick, hair down to my butt, bell-bottoms and tie-dye and beads...and butt-naked at Woodstock smokin more doobs than Bob Dylan and rolling around in the mud.

But...nowadays, it doesn't fit...and after my 4 times, it wasn't that, I gave it up to have a decent paying career and so that I don't have to worry about my kids having 3 eyes or 4 arms.

All that chemical stuff worries me...especially prescription meds. They announced this morning...even the dye in cartoons on baby diapers can cause an increase of rashes on some infants.

anyways...I stay away from anything but caffeine and aspartame...and I even moderate the intake of those.

previously sold as nutrisweet...pulled under that name for causing cancer.
( chemical composition is identical between them, small molecular difference )

and, as with all the artificial sweeteners, the cause of migranes for me.
can't touch the artificial sweeteners, or any product that contains them.

I live on caffeine and nicotine. not in moderation.
4, 10 cup pots of coffee a day minimum.
( still manage to sleep great )
