As a regular watcher of 'I Love Mondays', I can't help but notice that, anecdotally, Ryan seems to call in sick on Mondays a fair bit. Is he in poor health, or is Monday just hangover day?

#2 Posted by Questionable (619 posts) -

Not just due to sickness, they also have to leave the office for exclusive previews and stuffs

Calling in sick.
#5 Posted by Fredchuckdave (4484 posts) -

He's still relatively young, probably don't need to worry about him dying much unless its via overdose a la Chris Farley. That said he might not reach life expectancy :'(

#6 Posted by ShadowConqueror (2994 posts) -

I'm sure he's fine. People get sick, so what? He was there today, at least.

Giant Bomb killed him.

As someone with a typically dark sense of humor the whole line of questioning both Ryan, and Jeff's health on the forums has become a big gross to me.  I'm not saying to stop to anyone but it just seems in very poor taste.

#11 Posted by BraveToaster (12590 posts) -

This is probably no laughing matter, but I find this thread to be pretty damn funny.

@IanYarborough: You realize ILM isn't a structured format that everyone needs to be there for? Often times one of them is off doing something else. They're in meetings, at press events, or busy reviewing a game. They don't just sit at their desks all day. It's easy for one of them to be off doing something when the others film ILM.

I wouldn't let a 3 year old play this game.

I think your dates might be off a bit. That makes him 67 years old. No way he is that young!

Ryan died just before CBSi bought Giant Bomb and Comic Vine. Whiskey Media couldn't afford a Replicant that could properly copy Ryan and they were fucked. CBSi came in bought GB and CV and the current Ryan Replicant has to go in for repairs on a Monday. That's why he seems to be off a lot.

I know this is probably a joke thread, but I simply find it in poor taste and not funny at all :(

When you live in the Bay Area, you are prone to getting sick often. It's just comes with living there.

The majority of the responses are at least.

The site is doing fine, it's the attitude of the community that could serve to ease up a bit, but then general poor taste is an internet wide problem.

He is who he is, no more needs to be said.

#25 Posted by GunnBjorn (2911 posts) -

He's what? Age 33, 34 maybe? That's still young. He's fine. He said he'd either food poisoning or the stomach flu. That can happen. However, I do worry about his weight. There's nothing wrong with living the good life, but in the long run it might affect his health.

I was being sarcastic. Ryan is fine. He is a grown man.

#28 Posted by prestonhedges (1965 posts) -

He died inside a long, long time ago.

#29 Posted by RandomHero666 (3174 posts) -

Everyone is dying.

He's probably at some meetings, or hungover.

Today I bring you all sad news.

The man behind Giantbomb's success, and a personal hero to us all, has left us forever.

Let us all take a moment to remember the good times and the bad, and the founder of Whiskey Media who would outlive it only briefly...

Rest in peace Ryan Davis

1957-2012

He loved Mondays

Good night sweet prince

Maybe the people who made the Tupac hologram made a Ryan Davis hologram?

If something were to happen to him this thread would become horribly ironic.

#35 Posted by _Zombie_ (1462 posts) -

There is clearly a deeper meaning to this. And it's obviously tied to the Illuminati.

Kinda, but not quite. Though I often worry about the dudes for no particular reason.

If anything happens to him the mystical forces that be will activate the next Ryan Davis, the next chosen one.

The new Ryan Davis will continue the fight against bad games and good taste.

Against bad games and against good taste? Or against bad games and FOR good taste?

A dude I work with has Ryans... er, body type. He's 39, and had to take a week off to recover from a heart attack. If I was Ryans close relative or something, I'd definitely be encouraging him to make better choices.

Rarely is Vinny on ILM, and, aside from sleep deprivation, he's fine.

The really funny posts in this thread make up for all the panty-twistees being too serious.

And then had to come in and ruin it all with ponies. Thanks, duder.

I had a 22 year old friend who was going to a naval officer school. He was super fit and got in a drunk driving accident (passenger of drunk driver). Now he's a vegetable who's going to live out the rest of his days with a feeding tube in his throat and in a convalescence. There's more than 1 way to ruin your life.

Ryan Davis

1923 - 2007

He was buried in cargo shorts, a polo shirt, and a new pair of New Balance.

Patrick stole his shoes at the funeral.

Alex was not welcome.

Sorry. It was too soon for ponies.
