    Political Frailty

    Update on our friend Ershad, who is going out in full Asian dictator style. Yesterday his brother announced that he was recovering and would be indeterminately kept on life support if needed. Death was not an option yesterday. Today Ershad's condition is deteriorating as he suffers from liver and kidney failure. According to his brother "None of his organs are working", which probably means multiple organ failure. Ershad is also suffering from severe lung infection and myelodysplastic syndrome (or pre-leukemia). Anyway they don't think his life is in danger, as they did not even call a physician from Singapore for advanced treatment. I wonder when his life will be in danger.

    The 100 Club

    He was born on August 8th according to the man himself, so we have to wait a month for celebrations. Plus, he is the third after Yasuhiro Nakasone and Hyun Soong-jong, not the second.

    The Dead of 2019

    World is so unjust; Ershad, Balbir, Dilip Kumar , Daniel arap Moi, Mugabe, Mubarak, etc. continue to live despite their age and issues and someone has to die at 33.

Iran: *Hossein Waheed Khroasani (1921): very ancient and powerful. *Sadeq Rohani (1926) *Naser Makarem Shirazi (1927): an incredible bigot and a dick. *Hossein Noori Hamedani (1925): another hard-liner, which basically means asshole. *Lotfollah Safi Golpaygani (1919): centenarian, still very active. *Sadiq Hussaini Shirazi (1942): so young! *Mohammad Alavi Gorgani (1940) *Mousa Shubairi Zanjani (1928) *Ja'far Sobhani (1929) *Mohammad Ebrahim Jannaati (1933): the progressive one of the bunch. *Abdollah Javadi-Amoli (1933) *Hossein Mazaheri (1934): forgot his right eye somewhere. *Ali Mohammad Dastgheib Shirazi (1935) *Yousef Saanei (1937): was also Chairman of the Guardian Council *Kazem al-Haeri (1938) *Mohammad Ali Gerami Qomi (1938) *Asadollah Bayat-Zanjani (1941): another youngster *Reza Hosseini Nassab (1960): will get bored with all that broth *Ali Khamenei (1939): well.... Iraq: *Ali al-Sistani (1930) *Mohammad Yaqoobi (1960): looks 90. Congrats. *Mohammad Taqi al-Modarresi (1945) *Muhammad Saeed al-Hakim (1934) *Muhammad al-Fayadh (1930) Pakistan: *Muhammad Hussain Najafi (1932) *Bashir al-Najafi (1942)

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2020

    11 days later... 1)Andrea Camilleri: condition unchanged. Nothing has been released about him. 2)Gigi Simoni: condition unchanged. Nothing has been released about him. 3)Balbir Singh: still at Chandigarh PGI, but recovering and expected to be discharged very soon, according to his daughter. 3)Ershad: now breathing on his own and "well" according to his brother. Full recovery expected. 5)Beji Caid Essebsi: discharged from hospital and resumed his duties. Really had nothing to worry about. 6)Sir Everton Weekes: was never in critical conditions and only suffered a "minor" heart attack and fully recovered. 7)Zaheen Tahira: Taken off life support and shifted to a regular ward from ICU, now expected to make a full recovery. Fuck you, medical science.

    Hospitalised fro ultra-minor ailments (a swollen toe). Probably no one out of your list will die in 2019.

    Yes, she looks awful and will be a miracle if she makes it to 2020. She is 102 so it won't be a sad day.
  20. Mironov got his obit. Another one who is less likely to get it is Armenian-Russian painter Valerik Apinian, dead back in June (28th June) at 69.

    Derby Dead Pool 2019

    Well, 13 left and half year gone. Time for a mid-term check-up: 1)Samu: I don't think it is so bad as it seemed. He could easily see the year out, but no actual updates. 30% 2)Kathleen Blanco: Dead Cert. 100% 3)Leah Bracknell: She is faking it and everyone knows. I will probably die before her. 10% 4)Johnny Clegg: Now terminally ill for good, not much time left. 70% 5)Barry Du Bois: He seems to have everything under control right now. One for 2020. 20% 6)Bill Freehan: Ethernal dementia sufferer who has spent months in hospice care. Could go tomorrow, could pull a Nobby Stiles and last years. 50% 7)Greg Gilbert: Too active on Twitter to be going. He is another Leah Bracknell, a wasted pick. 10% 8)Richard Hadlee: Silent pick. Never have updates, but he has been ill for so much time. 40% 9)Lee Kerslake: Another one who should have died months ago, but somehow is still here. Still, terminally ill. 70% 10)Kerri Parker: Has not posted on social media since April. Could not be a good sign. 50% 11)Harry Reid: Terminally ill at the start of the year, then "in remission". Dork. 50% 12)Fernando Ricksen: How the heill is he still alive? 90% 13)Pat Smullen: Smart pick which did not pay. Congrats, man, you are healed. 2%
