    A Mugabe joke: A Robert Mugabe joke - Dead Pig Robert Mugabe and his chauffeur were rolling down the highway when suddenly they hit a pig crossing the road. They killed it instantly. Mugabe tells his driver: "Go to da farm over dere and hexplain to da honer of da pig what happen." One hour later, Robert sees his driver coming back from the farm, his clothes all wrinkled, a bottle of wine in one hand and a cigar in the other. "What happen to you?" Robert asks. "Well, the farmer gave me a bottle of wine, his wife, the cigar and their 19 year old daughter made wild passionate love to me." "My God! What did you tell dem?" asked Mugabe. The driver answered: "Good evening, I am Robert Mugabe's chauffeur and I have just killed the pig."

    Many of you curmudgeons may have noticed that it's that time of year when the godawful British media report A-level results day with a deliberate focus on the high-achievers in an attempt to make the average student feel like dirt. Well, whilst I'm not one of those high-achievers, I'm pleased to say that I did get into my university of choice, that is the University of Stirling, and will be studying Philosophy there over the course of the next four years. In the meantime, I can celebrate the opportunity of leaving my dull and uninspired life behind and making some friends and enjoying myself for a change.

    Guys, I'm so excited this forum exists I was looking around to see if there was a website with betting odds for the death of Bush Sr., because I had a feeling he was going to die in 2017 since the year started. I agree with the prediction him and Barbara are going to die within a few weeks of each other. Maybe they'll even be hospitalized together and hold hands before going. Fingers crossed! But really, the death list is such an awesome concept. Finding this honestly made my week (summer always maked me depressed). My bet is that Jimmy Carter is going to last until 98-99, btw.

    I don't know if it's safe to make a victory speech yet but I would like to take this opportunity to make my retirement speech. It's been an interesting, strange and sometimes morally questionable few years for myself. I've enjoyed finding out about random personalities and their stories I would have otherwise been ignorant of. However having, I think, claimed the title this year or at least given it my best shot I'm going to hang up my boots. There's only so many Christmases I can spend googling 'terminally ill with' before needing to step back. I considered entering a more 'proper' celebrity based team but I want to be able to compete and this is my best opportunity to go out on top. I'm especially pleased to have beaten the legendary DQSP this year, with it being the last chance to do so for the foreseeable future as he takes over the reins. I had a fair bit of luck this year with so many risky picks going my way so it feels right to at least take a break from it. At times in the past I've allowed myself to put far too many hours into researching the dying so I'm going to be focusing my energies elsewhere. There's more to life than death. I'll still be around the forums occasionally and may return to chase top spot again. Good luck to everyone competing next year and to the new host Mr DQSP. And big thanks to the Man in Black for all his efforts. Arrivederci, bon voyage and fare thee well.

    I attended the garden party at Holyrood yesterday and got to see Philip up close. I'm not a royalist but I love him and was far more excited to see him than the Queen. When they arrive they came down a steep stone staircase with around twenty steps, and both managed that fine. They then split up and did a separate meet and greet circuit each for about forty minutes before going into the tea tent. I had unknowingly managed to end up on his route. It took him ages to get around but he was stopping every few feet and talking to dozens of people, so no real indication of his abilities. When he appeared in front of me he seemed in remarkably good form for a man his age. Walking and standing straight, unaided unless you count his rolled up umbrella. Shorter than I expected but I suppose he's shrunk a bit. The familiar aged skin. He appeared to have a tiny hearing aid behind his left ear, but seemed very alert and responsive in conversation. As you can see, he's also a snazzy dresser.

    I like that the "related people" from a Google search for him is a hodgepodge of his contemporaries from boxing and his contemporaries from the DL.

    We were all wrong. The next big death was Teresa May's political career.

    "African American" - a euphemism increasingly applied to people who are neither African nor American. If you mean black people, say so.

    Ron - as many of you may know - always enjoyed the Death List and those here who play it in the right spirit. He also made me promise that when he died I would post this message. His death was sudden, and he was in contact with Paul Bearer only a few days ago and was about to send Christmas Greetings to the site. So over to Ron: "You always did warn me that you would win in the end, so congratulations and thanks for your patience over these many years. I was honoured to be your ambassador and will miss you probably more than you will miss me. And if you ask, yes it was a life worth living, even with the regrets. i hope you all get as much out of life as I have. See you on the other side."

    My list: - USA's Congress voting members: 435 Representatives +100 Senators = 535 - UK's Members of Parliament (MPs) = 650 - Australia's Members of the House of Representatives = 150 - New Zealands's Members of Parliament (MPs) = 120 - Dáil Éireann Assembly of Ireland members = 158 - Every Head of State from every sovereign country in the world, plus their Vice President OR Advisor = 195*2 = 390 - The Dalai Lama = 1 - All living members of the Kardashian family as depicted in Keeping Up With the Kardashians = 14 535+650+150+120+158+390+1+14 = 2018

    Optmism can be misplaced as was the case with Ronnie James Dio and Robin Gibb.She is living her life to the full while she still can.Stage 4 lung cancer is a terrible diagnosis and I am. sure Leah knows as much.Her optimism revolves around the time she has.A very logical decision.She is creating precious memories for her partner and children by investing her time in shamanism which is clearly giving her and those around her great comfort.Good for her I say.I think she is going through the faze of being overly positive so that her nearest and dearest have a sense of joy when they reminisce about her in years to come.Much better for those you love dearly not to remember you as a poor helpless being but as someone full of joy and positivity.When you know your time is limited it makes sense to maximise the memories for those you leave behind. I am conficted in what I hope for Leah.I hope on balance she deteriates rapidly and dies in peace later this year rather than lingers on and suffers .As horrible as this sounds there is a logic to it.53 is no age to go at all.If you have to though it is better that it is not too drawn out.Although on a personal level I think shamism is bullshit. BUT if it helps Leah and her family cope with such a horrible situation then that is something to be celebrated.
