"...he volunteered for the Samaritans, a suicide-prevention

committed suicide after talking to him — one of whom had
dialled the wrong number and only wanted the cricket results"...I
thought I was sensitive. And if you want an out of body
experience how else do you get started?

That's hilarious! Who's Arnold rimmer?

Who's Arnold rimmer?

A neurotic coward who is obsessed with rank and rules in the cult BBC Sci-Fi series Red Dwarf of the 80's and 90's. A show that I consider a leading example of good British humour at the time.

Details can be found at [Link: bbc.co.uk]. And as you would expect there are numerous other sites.

"Boarding this vessel is an act of war. Ergo we surrender."

"All in all, 100% succesfull trip."
"But sir, we lost Mr Rimmer."
"All in all, 100% succesfull trip."
- Cat & Kryten

"I owe Mr.Lister everything sir, if it wasn't for him, I'd be normal."
- Kryten

"What's it feel like?"
"Death? It's like being on holiday with a group of Germans."
- Rimmer describes death to Lister

"My answer in answering the question: "What does the red spectrum tell us about quasars?" Write bigger. There are various words that need to be defined: what is a spectrum, what is a red one, why is it red, and why is it so frequently linked with quasars? What the hell is a quasar?"
- Rimmer has another bad exam

"After intensive investigation (comma) of the markings on the alien pod (comma) it has become clear (comma) to me (comma) that we are dealing (comma) with a species of awesome intellect (colon)."
"Good. Perhaps they might be able to give you a hand with your punctuation."
- Rimmer and Holly

Don't try and explain it, Lister. I don't know why I'm even surprised. Everyone always leaves me in the end. Girls, parents... I had a pet lemming once. I loved that little lemming. I built him a little wall so he could hurl himself over it. He didn't want for anything. I'll never forget one Christmas I put my finger in his cage to give him some mince pie. He bit me! He sunk his teeth right into my fingers and wouldn't let go. In the end I had to smash his brains out against the wall. That little lemming broke my heart. The little git completely ruined my helicopter wallpaper.
- Rimmer

Our biggest enemy is going space crazy through loneliness. The only thing that helps me maintain my slender grip on reality is the friendship I share with my collection of singing potatoes.
- Holly

"This is crazy! Why are we talking about going to bed with Wilma Flintstone....she'll never leave Fred and we know it. "
- Lister

As far as I can see it, we have two options: One, we take it on and kill it; or Two, run away. Who's for Two?
- Rimmer

Pub: ah, yes, a meeting place where people attempt to reach advanced states of mental incompetence by the repeated consumption of fermented vegetable drinks.
- Kryten

If we're talking about famous firsts - my first french kiss. It's gotta be a killer story. Fourteen years old. We went on holiday with my Uncle Frank and his daughters. Sixteen. Twins. Blonde. Now I knew that Sarah fancied me, but I wasn't too sure about Alice. Anyway, middle of the night, I wake up with this tongue stuck down my throat. Wide awake now - I couldn't beleive my eyes. It was Uncle Frank! He'd got the wrong room - he thought I was my mum!
- Rimmer

It's the old, old story: Droid meets Droid, Droid becomes Chameleon, Droid loses Chameleon, Chameleon turns into Blob, Droid gets Blob back again, Blob meets Blob, Blob goes off with Blob, and Droid loses Blob, Chameleon, and Droid. How many times have we seen that story?
- Kryten

"The question is: Can we turn him back again?"
"The question is: Do we want to?"
- Cat & Rimmer, after Lister is turned into a chicken

This man is not guilty of manslaughter. He's only guilty of being Arnold J. Rimmer. That is his crime. It is also his punishment.
- Kryten

"Well, Space Corps Directive 195 clearly states that in an emergency power situation, a holo-grammatic crew member must lay down his life in order that the living crew members might survive."
"Yes, but Rimmer Directive 271 states just as clearly, "No chance you metal bastard." "
- Kryten and Rimmer

"Look, I don't want any toast, and he doesn't want any toast. In fact, no one around here wants any toast. Not now, not ever. No toast!"
"How 'bout a muffin?"
"Or muffins! Or muffins! We don't like muffins around here! We want no muffins, no toast, noteacakes, no buns, baps, baguettes or bagels, no croissants, no crumpets, no pancakes, no potato cakes and no hot-cross buns and definitely no smegging flapjacks!"
"Aah, so you're a waffle man!"
- Lister and Talkie Toaster

"But there are fifty-three doors between here and the science room! What on Earth are we going to do?"
"Hey, I got it! We laser our way through!"
"An excellent suggestion, Sir, with just two minor drawbacks. One, we don't have a power source for the lasers, and two, we don't have any lasers."
- Lister, Cat and Kryten

"Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast."
- 'Ace' Rimmer

"Purple alert! Purple alert!"
"What's a purple alert?"
"Well, it's like not as bad as a red alert, but a bit worse than a blue alert -- sort of a mauve alert."
- Lister and Holly

"Maybe we should drop the defensive shields?"
"A superlative suggestion sir, with only two drawbacks: one, we don't have any defensive shields and two, we don't have any defensive shields. I know that, technically, that's only one drawback, but it was such a big one I thought I'd mention it twice"
- Cat & Kryten

"They've taken Mr Rimmer! Sir, they've taken Mr Rimmer!"
"Quick! Let's get out of here before they bring him back!"
- Kryten & Cat

"Schopenhauer was right, wouldn't you say? Life without pain has no meaning. Gentlemen, I am here to give your lives... meaning."
- Dr. Langstrom

"Ten o'clock change-over anything to report? "
"We're still lagging behind Red Dwarf sir, almost 24 hours behind now, other than that, it's been a moderately quiet shift, except for one small shock a couple of hours ago when we noticed an alien invasion fleet off the starboard bow, thankfully it turned out to be one of Mr Lister's old sneezes that had congealed on the radar screen."
- Rimmer & Kryten

"Step up to red alert. "
"Sir, are you absolutely sure? It does mean changing the bulb."
- Rimmer & Kryten

Open communications channels Lister. Broadcast on all known frequencies, and in all known languages, including Welsh.

( Kryten has been changed from a mech-anoid to a human, and is discussing it with Lister )
L: Any problems?
K: Well, just one or two. In fact I've compiled a little list if you'll indulge me. Now then, uh, my optical system doesn't appear to have a zoom function.
L: No, human eyes don't have a zoom.
K: Well then, how do you bring a small object into sharp focus?
L: Well, you just move your head closer to the object.
K: I see. Move your head ... closer, hmm, to the object. All right, okay. Well, what about other optical effects, like split screen, slow motion ?
L: No. We don't have them.
K: You don't have them -- just the zoom? Hmm. Well, no, that's fine, that's great, no, no, that's really great, that's great. Now then, my nipples don't work.
L: Er, in what way `don't work'?
K: Well, uh, when I was a mechanoid, the right nipple-nut was used to, uh, regulate body temperature, while the left nipple-nut was used mainly to, uh, pick up shortwave radio transmissions. Now, what I'm saying is, no matter how hard I twiddle it, I can't seem to pick up Jazz FM.
L: Human nipples don't do that, Kryten.
K: I see. Fine. Ah: recharging. Now, I presume that, uh, when a human wants to recharge they do it much the same way mechanoids do. Indeed, I have located what I presume to be the recharging socket, but for some strange reason it doesn't appear to have the standard three-pin adaption. Now, do I have to use some kind of special adaptor? because, no matter what do, the lead just keeps falling out.
L: Kryten, we eat and sleep: that's our way of recharging.
K: Hmm. Ah yes, now, I wanted to talk to you about something. Something about, um, well, something I know we humans get a little embarrassed about. It's a bit of a taboo subject – not the sort of thing we like to sit around and chat about in polite conversation.
L: Kryten, I'm an enlightened twenty-third century guy. Spit it out, man.
K: Well, I want to talk to you about my penis. I knew it, you've gone straight into smirk mode. Aren't we both two human adults? Can't we discuss our reproductive system without adolescent sniggering?
L: Yeah, of course we can.
K: Thank you. [hands Lister polaroid] Well?
L: `Well' what?
K: Well, what do you think?
L: I'm not quite with you here, Kryten. What am I supposed to say?
K: I want to know: is that normal?
L: What? Taking photographs of it and showing it to your mates? No, it's not!
K: Well, but is it supposed to look like that?
L: Well, yeah.
K: It's hideous! That's the best design they could come up with? Are you seriously telling me there were choices, and someone said "Ah, there, that's it. That's the shape we're looking for: The last-chicken-in-the-shop look"? Shakespeare had one? Einstein? Perry Como sang `Memories are Made of This' with one of those stashed in his slacks?
L: Well, yeah.
K: No wonder humans don't have a zoom mode! Ugh. Now, take a look at this [hands Lister polaroid. Lister rotates it several times, perplexed] and this. [hands Lister second polaroid. Lister holds them side-by-side, then top to bottom. Sudden shock] Now why do you suppose that happened?
L: Wwwwwhat were you thinking of at the time?
K: Well, nothing in particular, sir. I was just idly flicking through an electrical-appliance catalogue. I came across the section on super-deluxe vacuum cleaners and suddenly my underpants elastic was catapulted across the medical bay.
L: You see, man, you're neither one thing or the other. You shouldn't be getting erotic thoughts about electrical appliances.
K: It *was* a triple-bag easy-glide vac with turbo-suction and a self-emptying dustbag.
L: Kryten, I don't care what model it was. No vacuum cleaner should give a human being a double polaroid. Do yourself a favour, man, change back.

LOL - Ahh...That's it I'm going to get those DVD out!

Rimmer: It's not easy you know to come in every night, look in that mirror, and see a guy nobody likes.
Cat: How do you think we feel? We got to look at it all day.

To whom it may concern,
When you think about my topic, you might want to think outside the box.
Exactly what is 'Thinking Outside the Box'?
Outside the Box
Thinking outside the box requires different attributes that include:
Willingness to take new perspectives to day-to-day work.
Openness to do different things and to do things differently.
Focusing on the value of finding new ideas and acting on them.
Striving to create value in new ways.
Listening to others.
Supporting and respecting others when they come up with new ideas.

Out-of-the box thinking requires an openness to new ways of seeing the world and a willingness to explore. Out-of-the box thinkers know that new ideas need nurturing and support. They also know that having an idea is good but acting on it is more important. Results are what count

Dearest Tim,

Chill out and read the following!
Humour or Humor is the ability or quality of people, objects, or situations to evoke feelings of amusement in other people. The term encompasses a form of entertainment or human communication which evokes such feelings, or which makes people laugh or feel happy. The origin of the term derives from the humoral medicine of the ancient Greeks, which stated that a mix of fluids known as humours (Greek: χυμός, chymos, literally: juice or sap, metaphorically: flavour) controlled human health and emotion.

A sense of humour is the ability to experience humour, a quality which all people share, although the extent to which an individual will personally find something humorous depends on a host of absolute and relative variables, including geographical location, culture, maturity, level of education, and context. For example, young children (of any background) particularly favour slapstick, such as Punch and Judy puppet shows. Satire may rely more on understanding the target of the humour, and thus tends to appeal to more mature audiences.

I have a mental picture of you in my head wearing this.....

Justin

To whom it may concern,

[Link: vehram.com]

In the spring of 1994, Vessen Hopkins uncovered an external energy array,
focused at specific key points outside the body. This incredible discovery
represents the single most important breakthrough in the history of science
and has implications that stand to unravel our greatest mystery, is there
life after death.

The Vehram Energy System is an external energy array comprising six
distinct energy centers, universally arranged in a unique and independently
verifiable configuration, yet is entirely outside the human body. The
energy that emanates from these energy centers is commonly recognized by
astral projection practitioners as the "vibrational surge," the escape
energy that fuels the separation.

The importance of this discovery to not only those who practice astral
projection, but all of humanity, cannot be overstated. This is the key to
one of our most mysterious phenomena, the out-of-body experience, thus
opening the portal for all to exploring this natural ability and yet offers
science a way to demonstrate the separate nature of consciousness by
showing that we are indeed able to reach beyond the physical body to
interact with this external energy array. Its properties are so unique,
universal, and powerful, it simply cannot be dismissed as a figment of the
imagination. The system exists for everyone and serves the same unique
purpose, to fuel the astral body and enable consciousness to separate from
the physical. Of particular curiosity to science is what happens when one
makes direct contact with one of these energy centers.

After more than 13 years of research and investigation into this ethereal
anomally, Hopkins is making the discovery of the Vehram System known to
all. Launching the site http://vehram.com and requesting your help,
Hopkins hopes to spread the word to as many as possible. Anything you can
do to help others learn about this incredible energy source would be
greatly appreciated.

Anyone involved in metaphysical or other serious scientific research
related to energy and or quantum mechanics could help by offering
independent analysis and investigation. You may contact our research
department by sending an email to [email protected] if you are interested
in collaboration or other projects. It is important that science have an
opportunity to explore this completely. However, there already exist
compelling evidence that this energy system does exist. Millions of people
have already felt its power. Different aspects of this energy system were
in fact discovered by different people independently of one another,
suggesting that it exists in exactly the same universal configuration for
each of us, outside the body. Our ability ro reach outside the body and
independently determine the various locations prove that this energy array
is a real manifestation, not the product of one person's illusion. If the
energy system is real, then so is our ability to reach beyond the body.

Anyone can see for themselves how this energy system works and examine the
evidence for themselves. All the information can be found through the site
http://vehram.com and those interested can pick up a copy of Hopkins's new
book, "Out-of-Body Experiences: the Vehram Energy System," which tells the
story in length of how Hopkins stumbled onto the Vehram System and offers a
revolutionary technique for leaving the body, based on the newly understood
fundamentals governing this natural ability.

Most importantly, we ask you to help spread the word. Feel free to forward
this email to anyone you feel would be interested. Help us share the
message through the internet, through online sites, blogs, forums, etc.
The more people who know the more enlightened we become through the spread
of knowledge. This is the discovery that proves life after death and the
Vehram Energy System represents a doorway to the other side so that we may
see and explore that realm for ourselves, here and now, in this lifetime.
It is personal knowledge of what comes next, what is on the other side. It
is a path to undestanding what we are, where we come from, and where we are
going.

Thank you for your help and support,
Sincerely,

They must have a way to check if you are linked to an image or not! because I cannot see the poster, just an image for IMP Awards, so try this

Ah well forget the comment and the Exorcist poster (now deleted). I had a cache problem - sorry about that!

To whom it may concern,

Thank you for all your input so far on this topic, and I hope to talk to you more about it when I get back from a vacation.

[Link: near-death.com]

After a preacher died and went to heaven, he noticed that a New York cab driver had been awarded a higher place than he.

"I don't understand," he complained to God. "I devoted my entire life to my congregation."

"Our policy here in heaven is to reward results," God explained. "Now, was your congregation well attuned to you whenever you gave a sermon?"

"Well," the minister had to admit, "some in the congregation fell asleep from time to time."

"Exactly," said God, "and when people rode in this man's taxi, they not only stayed wake, they even prayed."

Thank you,
Tim

This persons reply is one of the many reasons, why I feel this topic is so important.

"I understand. I even took the time to understand because I wanted to. It is certainly in my best interest to understand because if I find myself dead and still thinking I want to know what my options are."

It never hurts to have a back up plan.

Carrol Burnett once said " ABout the time I got my head on straight, my body fail apart.
