37. Noam Chomsky

Recommended Posts

Oh I haven't started one of these for a likely future DL pick in ages. Writer, critic, rent-a-cynic, political philosopher and never off the TV pronouncer Noam Chomsky is 92 this year, and judging by this appearance last week on one of the online lefty news channels, is starting to show and sound his age after a long period of doing the old Dorian Gray thing. As someone who doesn't want to leave the limelight he'll do his continual aging in public, so here's a thread for him. And we can't have Gooseberry start all the A lister threads now...

I tought that he has already a tread because he is a good candidate and famous enough to be on the deathlist. I think he should be on the 2021 deathlist... if he arrives

Jesus christ he looks rough as fuck, even for 92.

He's 91 still, but its probably due to his beard and the fact that he looks down to the camera.

Doesn't look great (however he can still walk, talk well and hasn't lost his marbles) in this interview but this whole video is weird.

 

First of all he walks into the interview and tells that he has to cancel/reschedule it because he "doesn't have time". Chomsky later mentions that the interviewer missed the time the interview was supposed to start...

The interviewer guy seems very disrespective and urges Chomsky to answer his questions. And what really annoys me is that he stops the call when Chomsky is saying "Thank you, glad to be-"

I wonder if the boy even knows who he is interviewing.

Well done. Officially, he isn't ill, but everyone eventually runs out of juice, and he'll do rather soon

Looks horrible in recent interviews, he'll probably keep doing them until he dies. Lost his younger brother David Eli Chomsky (1934-2021) in July.
