R.I.P. Bubba “Hightower” Smith


Ja, die Police Academy Filme waren totaler Trash und ich hätte zum Siebten sicherlich nicht ins Kino gehen müssen. Was ich während des Films auch merkte und wieder raus ging. Aber trotzdem. Hightower war immer so eine coole Figur in der Reihe und ich möchte wetten, das er auch Bubba bei Forest Gump beeinflusst hat. Diese Art “freundlicher Hüne, der keiner Fliege was zu leide tun kann”. Ausserdem habe ich die ersten beiden Police Academy Filme geliebt.

Es ist keine gute Zeit. Unsere Helden sterben aus.

Machs gut, Bubba! Danke, das du da warst! Und danke für den Hightower! Und grüß Tackleberry!

    Krass. Schon wieder ein Stück Kindheit/Jugend weniger. RIP.

    Das macht mich traurig.
    Es stimmt, unsere Helden sterben aus.

    Rest in peace, Bubba Smith!

    Legendär auch: Al Bundy vs. Hightower:

    Ein guter, bedeutender Schauspieler war er nun wirklich nicht, aber vielleicht ja ein netter Typ. Schade für die, die ihn kannten und/oder mochten.

    Die Szene in “Married with Children” war wirklich toll.

    Ich gestehe: Ich fand in den 80ern Police Academy I und II gut. Aber mein Gott! Ich war ein Kind/Jugendlicher!!!

    RIP Hightower. So sad.
    Aber: Ist Tackleberry tatsächlich auch schon tot?

  9. Jan

    Unsere Helden sterben der Reihe nach aus, wieder ein Stück Kindheit/Jugend weniger :-/

    RIP Hightower.

    Putting The Cost Of The ESA’s Rosetta Mission In Perspective

    "So what do we get for our €1.4bn? Rosetta is both an astounding feat of engineering (catapulting a tonne of spacecraft across millions of kilometres of space and ending up in orbit around a comet just 4 km across) and an extraordinary opportunity for science (allowing us to examine the surface of a lump of rock and ice which dates from when the Solar System formed).

    Like a lot of blue-skies science, it’s very hard to put a value on the mission. First, there are the immediate spin-offs like engineering know-how; then, the knowledge accrued, which could inform our understanding of our cosmic origins, amongst other things; and finally, the inspirational value of this audacious feat in which we can all share, including the next generation of scientists.

    Whilst those things are hard to price precisely, in common with other blue-skies scientific projects, Rosetta is cheap. At €1.4bn, developing, building, launching and learning from the mission will cost about the same as 4.2 Airbus A380s—pretty impressive when you consider that it’s an entirely bespoke robotic spacecraft, not a production airliner. On a more everyday scale, it’s cost European citizens somewhere around twenty Euro cents per person per year since the project began in 1996.

    Rosetta has already sent us some stunning images of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and today’s landing will, with any luck, provide us with our first close-up glimpse of the chaotic surface of this dirty snowball. If you’re a sci-fi fan, then, you might consider the mission to have been worth its price tag just for the pictures. The total cost for the Rosetta mission is about €3.50 per person in Europe; based on the average cinema ticket price in the UK (€8.50), it has cost less than half of what it will cost for you to go to see Interstellar.”
