This humor has never worked for me. I figure the people who write it have never had a friend who died while climbing. I think about the guys I knew who lost it with their boots on and I'd trade any of the "YGD" people in a second for my old friends.
Risk sports can be dangerous shti. People who throw dying as a joke, have no clue-or they never felt the emptiness that comes from that type of whorehouse- where someone steps out and you can pull on the rope as hard as you want and they are never coming back.

Show some respect or just learn to tell a joke that's funny

Everybody dies. That's the joke. Get it?
It's a cavalier thing. If you're a puss, you'll never get it.

The joke still doesn't work for me, it feels like you're walking on a sacred thought and I don't think it's the right path to follow.

You can't tell someone "that's not funny" - it doesn't work like that. You could tell them "that's not appropriate." Or else you can try to understand the humor behind the joke. We react in different ways to shared experience. Comedians try to make us laugh about it.

Here's Joan Rivers' take:

You probably don't want to hang around YOSAR.

The Joan Rivers take was pretty good

I laugh at most anything-not much insults me but the YGD stuff doesn't work for me FWIW

and from Desert Ed: "if you aint a Cowboy you aint sh#t......."

I've buried friends from the outdoor world and say "YGD"

I also think having a sad or bad experience doesn't give one the right to impose emotion on others.

I hear you Hobo Dan. This is a tough one to respond to. I hear what you are saying, but I also understand what people like locker mean when they say that phrase.

I think it's about how each person is built heart and mind wise. We are all different and we all express ourselves differently.

This is the great dichotomy of humankind. Some think like you; some like Locker. You both honor your friends that have gone before you. But you express things differently.

Wars are begun and fought for this very reason....different logic, varying ideas and miscommunication.

My best friend jesus says always believe the best about others. He knows we are all so different and that we can be like sandpaper to one another. The good thing is that sandpaper smooths rough edges. The sandpaper people in our lives, ones that are tough to deal with, help us become smoother, better people. imho of course

Well then, I guess I think too much, others would say....what the f#@#k screw those ygd peeps.

Just Be Happy. lynnie
