    Basically Edward Woodward had to shag her to save his life, yet he failed.

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2021

    Thich Nhat Hanh's health has declined again and he has completely lost his appetite. He has somehow improved now (oh, immortals!) but his next birthday is widely expected to be his last.

    Political Frailty

    Three-time Turkey PM Mesut Yilmaz is in critical condition after brain cancer surgery. Apparently he has also suffered from lung cancer in the past.

    Emir of Kuwait gets US Legion of Merit. Unable to attend, he is receiving treatment at Minnesota Mayo Clinic.

    38. Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    Opposition for the sake of opposition and self-proclaimed immortality, which led her to remain there despite the clear fact she was dying.

    Dead Drummers

    Kerslake's wife has asked Hensley to take down the post, which he did. Anyway I think they are only working on an official announcement, it is definitely too likely to be another false report.

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2021

    Finally! Now some observations: 1)Shafi was an Islamic hardliner, far more than he showed in public. And a gigantic nepotistic dork. Very good riddance. 2)He was seemingly immortal, being in and out of ICU like it was a walk in the park. 3)Just yesterday I googled his name in Bangla and found he was bedridden at his Madrassa but still able to talk and only relying on nasal cannula. I was going to post he would be around for a while... There is a big battle going on between Immortals to determine Dilip Kumar's successor when he will die. Geelani and Thich Nhat Hanh are both strong contenders, but Mikis Theodorakis could be the surprise.

    New video of old Kane Tanaka. Her health has not declined at all since the beginning of 2020. 118 is extremely likely.

    Finance Minister, but was somehow seen as a shadow PM.

    19. Valery Giscard d'Estaing

    In a good condition, suffering from a "weak" lung infection and negative to COVID. It does not seems his time at all.

    He is symptomatic too, but not "in danger" apparently. Guess he will be hospitalised anyway.
  15. Rules: *Whoever wants chooses a pick from this list, which contains the names of the 20 oldest living state leaders at the moment. If your pick dies you get one point. * Whoever gets the highest number of points wins the game. *Any obit in any language is qualifying, if the man is really dead. *A new round is started whenever a state leader dies, even if he has not been picked by anyone. *You have to pick a name at every round. You can keep the same name if you want. *Every leader can be picked by a single user. Once the leader is already picked you can't choose him. *Game ends when all the original 20 leaders (the first list, including Anton Vratusa) are dead.

    Discharged. Briefed the media and seems alright. https://www.corriere.it/politica/20_settembre_14/covid-silvio-berlusconi-dimesso-san-raffaele-3fd29556-f65b-11ea-a235-1f3f4e67a539.shtml
  18. COVID seems to have taken a huge toll on Amit Shah, as he is hospitalised for the third time. https://www.bloomberg.com/amp/news/articles/2020-09-13/amit-shah-modi-s-closest-aide-hospitalized-again-ians-reports
  19. Wrong thread. This is for people whose wiki pages are edited to show they died, but no other confirmation can be found online.
