in reply to Drunk on golf: 99 Bottles of Beer

eyepopslikeamosquito,
t also pops up often in popular culture, especially film and TV. I remember the late Patrick Swayze, for example, singing it over and over again to Whoopi Goldberg in the movie Ghost in order to get her to go downtown (which she would never normally do).

It has been a while but I think you are wrong. I remember the song he sang as "I'm Henery The Eighth, I am I am". On a side note, I do believe there was a reference in a ghost show. According to 99 Bottles of Beer, it appeared on an episode of the Ghostbuster's cartoon.

I always enjoy your posts and this is no exception - I just seldom have anything to contribute :-)

Cheers - L~R

    Yes, you are right re "Henery the Eighth, I am". I found a youtube clip which shows Patrick Swayze singing Henry the Eighth to Whoopi Goldberg, as you say. Ghost is one of my all-time favourite movies, and I've seen it many times, but don't own a copy. It's been a while, but I remember a later street scene, where Whoopi tries to renege on going downtown and Patrick responds by singing 99 bottles of beer. Whoopi then quickly changes her mind and goes downtown as agreed. I could be mistaken though, and can't find a supporting youtube clip.

[holli]: but then you DO give a fuck
[1nickt]: I don;t think beliefs should be down-voted, just behaviours.
[james28909]: im not quite how to explain it any better nick. you evolved from ignorance to intelligence. not the other way. the universe evolves from gas coulds and debris into planets stars and galaxies ect. it doesnt happen any other way. hence it has ....
[james28909]: some kind of logic behind it
[james28909]: and that is also anothe rpoint i made, i think it has to do with perception of the world around you. most people think of evolution on a human scale. why could life evolve on this planet? because this planet evolved in this solar system. and so on.
[holli]: here's something for you to watch, James. I think you will like it
[erix]: for the record: I have not downvoted anyone on that subthread that was my fault
[james28909]: there are all kinds of things that had to happen to let life come to be. but at the same time, life may not be the end goal IF there is any kind of end goal lol
[james28909]: well who is the person who gets to decide which behaviour is worthy of a downvote? a person with their own beliefs? xD
[erix]: teleology -- I've never understood why that was thunk up
