    I was just watching the movie One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest just before I read this thread and some others on the same tantrum.

    And it just occurred to me that N1LAF is the Randall McMurphy of Ham Island and AD4MG is sort of the Nurse Ratched of the Forum.

    I'm just waiting to see who is going to take the role of the Chief character . . . .

    This is why I occassionally donate to the site - it's at least as good entertainment as cable TV and costs a lot less.

    I find very little wrong with this place. You & Bubba are welcome to find another beach, if it's not to your liking.

    Yeah, I'm a cold, heartless tyrant and N1LAF is a hero with a tremendous sense of humor. You nailed it, big guy.

    You got it backwards. You've never read the book, I take it. That's OK. It's common for people who watched the movie as kids years ago to mistake McMurphy for a hero and Nurse for a "heartless tyrant".


    McMurphy is an immature idiot trouble maker. McMurphy ends up lobotomized then dead. That's not a good thing.

    Nurse Rached tries to keep the loonies under control. Nurse Rached wins in the end.

    Chief is the hero.

    I give you credit for calling that one! I never had the pleasure of reading the book. Huge mistake on my part. And, it has been many years since I watched the movie, which came out just about the time I graduated (1974), that I do recall. A quick check on IMDB reveals the film debuted in 1975.

    I will set aside the cold, winter nights this year for reading that book, and get back to you on my impressions of the characters. Yours is an interesting perspective.

    Vintery, mintery, cutery, corn,
    Apple seed and apple thorn,
    Wire, briar, limber lock
    Three geese in a flock
    One flew East
    One flew West
    And one flew over the cuckoo's nest
    Oh.

    :roll:

    Insinuating that Luke is the Embodiment of the Combine? I don't think so. Fergawdsakes.
    Maybe I'll rip my computer from it's place, throw it out the window, and run away.

    Damn right, I read the book. And many others.

    Chief kills McMurphy after the lobotomy. I also recall the kid with the stutter killing himself after the nurse browbeat him following the incident with the hooker. It's a disturbing movie, I guess the book is similarly disturbing?

    I didn't think you would.

    As you often do, you read way too much into things. Don't take it literally.
