    It amazes me that people have so little to occupy them that they resort to following this sort of tripe.

    Yeah i've been following this on Kiwi Farms and even Null (Josh Moon) the owner of the forum has been involved as he has access to emails after they felt sorry for them a while back and Chris admitted by emails to dating an older woman.

    That's some amount of losses given you'd imagine most of the players would have been in around 30 at the time of the final.

    Summer Olympic Deaths/Dead Medallists

    I don't know where to put this but Krystsina Tsimanouskaya of Belarus is currently detained in Tokyo airport and being forced to leave the Olympics after criticising her government and complaining about the national team on social media. She still hasn't left yet as people are trying to get the IOC involved. BBC.

    The 2021 Deathlist Cup

    Congratulations Reptile. The best man won! Thanks for running my baby, Joey. You did very well. I'd offer to take it back but understandably I'd quite like a deadpool hosting rest in 2022!

    Edgar Bear Runner, a moderately important Native American activist, has died earlier this month at age 70: https://siouxfuneralhome.com/book-of-memories/4664539/Bear-Runner-Edgar/index.php Used to be an Alt Obits pick of mine, among other pools - turns out he died off the radar. Wikipedia hasn't noticed yet (neither did anyone else): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edgar_Bear_Runner

    The 2021 Deathlist Cup

    Well done, Reptile! Thanks for hosting as well Joey. Well, I was too "deadpooled out" to enter a team, so I definitely understand that running it was quite draining. Still a great pool to follow even from a bystander perspective, so certainly hope to see it live on.

    My brother is 8 years older than me. He did his degree when the grants were at the highest real term levels. I did mine in the last year before student loans were introduced. My father who grew up during the war encouraged us to continue our education because that option was denied him. We have struggled financially but I feel for my daughter's generation. I think the UK will be worse my eldest sister moved to Germany last year to be close to her daughter.

    Cooper is the 7th Leeds player from the starting line-up of the 1970 FA Cup final against Chelsea. They've also lost sub Mick Bates a couple of weeks ago (as well as manager Don Revie). In contrast, Chelsea have lost just 4 of their starting XI (plus manager Dave Sexton). Of the survivors, Chelsea sub Marvin Hinton is the oldest followed by Eddie McCreadie (both 81), then Johnny Giles, 80. The youngest is Eddie Gray at a mere 73 (as is David Harvey, who replaced Gary Sprake for the replay). Chelsea's youngest survivors are David Webb & John Dempsey, both 75.

    Gary Burgess mostly quits work to start "focusing on his health", i.e. puts himself on the clock, though I would guess it's nothing immediate:

    My father said, 15 years ago, that they were the last generation to have it better than the ones before. Now, I wonder why he got children... anyway, I'm pretty pessimistic right now, and think a huge population crunch is coming in a few decades. Maybe millenials like me will not live to see it, but the next generation will.
