    Most Significant Death Of Each Month

    I'm intrigued by the suggestions above. While each person has their own definition of "significant", I'm frankly astonished by Bain and Goodall being suggested. Goodall will be remembered mostly for his euthanasia. Bain is a "famous for being (moderately and niche) famous" pick. I find nothing seminal, intriguing, inventive or great thinking in either. When gamers who play games become the norm as "significant", then we truly are in the end times.....

    Richard Branson

    The 67 year old Virgin is in training to blast off into space within months: https://metro.co.uk/2018/05/26/sir-richard-branson-is-training-to-become-an-astronaut-and-planning-a-journey-into-space-7578619/ If the training doesn't kill him, maybe the flight will. Just let us know the celebrity passenger list in advance, Dicky love....

    A Night To Remember

    Being bored I have decided to revisit this thread. Now in relation to Charles Belchier, I found this: https://www.londonfictions.com/colin-wilson-adrift-in-soho.html which specifically refers to him as the chap in the film, and also the book reference here: https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=ZCvrS9DjE68C&pg=PT281&dq=dreaming+to+some+purpose+charles+belchier&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiJ5oCyjaLbAhWLAMAKHWi-D_YQ6AEIJzAA#v=onepage&q=dreaming to some purpose charles belchier&f=false So it appears he died in 1968 in prison in Germany.

    The Muppets (and other puppets)

    Well, anyone have a spare grand, and time to spare after entering the MMMDP? Emu (of Rod Hull and Emu) goes up for sale on 31 May this year: http://www.gazetteandherald.co.uk/news/16223601.Most_feared_puppet_of_the_70s_and_80s_to_be_sold_at_auction_in_Chippenham/ (awaits the bafflement of non-UK readers )

    Sydney Pollack

    Rather than do the Anniversary Thread.... Sydney Pollack died 10 years ago today, aged 73.

    Films with entirely dead casts

    Hmm, somebody didn't check the full cast including uncredited folk. Anyway, the Telegraph has Dorothy Barrett's obituary: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/obituaries/2018/05/25/dorothy-barrett-actress-wizard-oz-obituary/ IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0057118/ Died back in March, but doesn't seem to have been mentioned since Prophet said she was a possibility for 2018.

    The Hare's Death Pool

    Ten teams had Dean Francis who goes from the ring to a box. Still an early knockout in the great scheme....

    The Hare's Death Pool

    Only one gamer has a hit with Totalbiscuit. https://www.gameplanet.co.nz/news/g5b07489d4b806/YouTuber-and-critic-John-TotalBiscuit-Bain-dies-at-33/ That'll teach him to Hob Nob with a pick with Digestive problems, however he's a slam dunk.
