    Late Euro championships 2020

    Fuck the Anglish. No matter the score, the Anglish will wake up tomorrow and still be Anglish, and will be pitied.

    Plants: The Other Life Form

    Interesting, seeing as you’d be unable to sell living things on eBay or other auction sites here in the US. That wasn’t the case about 18 years ago when I bought 6 plants of the world’s hottest pepper for my garden. But the next year I went to get more and the policy changed. SC
  3. Seems I've come across a gap in our DL pages where we have forgotten our brothers and sisters of the world of flora and fauna. Certainly the odd story about some 1000-yr old tree getting knicked, or Mrs. Moistbridge's prize rose garden being destroyed, etc etc. And with that... Children at Napier Central School (Hawke's Bay, NZ) are asking "who would do such a thing?" after six trees on the grounds were intentionally poisoned. Holes were drilled into the bases of at least six trees including native pohutukawa and puriri - but the deliberate damage was discovered only when....[o]ne parent saw half-inch holes around the base. The trees have stood along the school's fence line for about 60 years. SC ​

    Things To Do While Waiting For Death

    Camp out in your motorhome - at the cemetery. [Story comes from the Highlands so probably not that odd.] SC

    What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    They should only have to wear dresses if they, let’s say, wander 25 yards out of goal only to have themselves and a well-deposited ball of karma hit the back of the net. SC

    Beauty Queens

    Having not long ago lost a former Miss Valenzuela who was homeless for 15 years, and now a former Miss Nigeria, let's give them a heavenly pageant to reunite. Former Miss Nigeria and sister to famous actor Hank Anuku, Rita Anuku, has died. Rita, who won the Miss Nigeria pageant in 1986, died yesterday July 2nd in a hospital in Abuja after a battle with cancer. The mother of four was just 47 years old.

  8. Let's lump all these folks into one thread. Not all of them are past NFL players, though a chunk of them are (Steve Gleason, Tim Shaw, OJ Brigance, etc). Lest we forget the Pete Frates of the world, Jason Becker or even Stephen Hawking (though he's covered plenty elsewhere), or the late Sam Shepard. Not every affliction needs it's own thread, but this one is pretty well-defined and the progression easy enough to follow. And with that, a Tim Shaw update. He looks good enough, not even in a wheelchair at this point, so I think we can give him a pass to 2019 before we need to check in on him. SC

    Doctor Doctor

    Seems we should have a thread for renowned physicians, nurses and the like. Quentin Young, a Chicago physician renowned for his passionate advocacy for equality in health care — and whose patients included Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Studs Terkel, and former mayor Harold Washington — has died. The retired 92-year-old internist for many years ran a private practice in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood, where a young Barack Obama was a patient in the 1990s. The doctor and future president became close, a relationship that evolved into discussions about health care policy, and a shared interest in reform. SC

    Tuskegee Airmen

    I've posted about six Tuskegee Airmen over the past couple years. Wiki says they don't know how many there are remaining, but I think 35-40 is a fair guess. Anyway let the countdown begin. When they become rarer than hen's teeth we will get an accurate count. They should be in their very late 80s by now. One of the original Tuskegee Airmen, Dr. Thurston L. Gaines, Jr., died in California Saturday. He was 94. Gaines, as one of World War II's Tuskegee Airmen, was one of the United State's first black military pilots. He flew a P-51 Mustang in 1945. In April 1945, Gaines was shot down over Germany and captured. He was held in German prisons until he was liberated in June of 1945 by Gen. Patton's division. Gaines received the Congressional Gold Medal from President George W. Bush in 2007. He also received the Purple Heart.

    Golf: The 19th Hole

    When my eyes scanned this obit I thought it said Putts - which would have been a great golf name. BTW he was an HONOURARY member of the Ryder Cup, a necessary distinction. SC

    Female 'Firsts'

    So many obits proclaim 'she was the first woman to (insert accomplishment)', that these neophyte ladies deserve their own place in DL. (African Americans sans 'americans' will be getting one too, probably by week's end.) So with that.... Sunset “Sunny” Hale, the first woman in polo history to win the U.S. Open in a male-dominated sport, died Sunday night in Norman, Okla. Hale, 48, died due to complications from cancer. The world’s greatest women’s polo player founded the Women’s Championship Tournament (WCT) that opened the door and broke down barriers for other girls and women to pursue their passion. She helped revive the U.S. Women’s Open in 2011. SC

    20th Century Americans Sitcoms

    Wasn’t even his real name. He’s the only person who wasn’t a McLeod who VOLUNTEERED to be one! He left his wife, found out the grass wasn’t greener, and re-married her. Quite a life. No bouy could save him. SC

    They Say We're Sick

    The remains of 215 children, some as young as three years old, were found at the site of a former residential school for indigenous children. The children were students at the Kamloops Indian Residential School in British Columbia that closed in 1978, according to the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc Nation, which said the remains were found with the help of a ground penetrating radar specialist.

    The English Language

    Maybe you should hang out/chat with more Americans, where you’ll never again have to read such horribly stilted English trope.

    The article says he’s fine. Since it isn’t a disease, there was literally no reason to post the story on our boards.

    The Deathlist Kitchen

    Logan Cemetery in Utah is home to a headstone that is gaining notoriety around the world thanks to photos posted online. Aside from birth and death dates for Wade and Kathryn Andrews, the headstone displays a recipe for Kay’s Fudge. Actually it’s a great obit and greater story; I rarely advise reading obits. Do read this one. SC
