    I'm getting the feeling he's dead and there's a moratorium on announcing it by the family - though I;m surprised TMZ hasn't published an opinion either way

    honestly this should have been a lesson learned a long time ago, especially taking into account how old/in disrepair the Iranian military helicopters are doesn't help that they have both #2 and #3 after the Ayatollah in the heli

    Not sure what's cheap about it? That I got it from Wikipedia originally? Sorry, very confused here, but maybe that's just me I guess

    The Lord of the Rings

    As long as they don't cast either Tom Holland or Timothee whats-his-name as Beren... But yeah, if they ever get the rights to the Silm there are several stories that could be done as standalones (or I guess they wait until it hits the public domain in the UK? It'll take forever to hit public domain in the US)

    Wasn't sure where to pop this, but this thread seemed appropriate: Ramón Fonseca Mora, co-founder of Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, which was caught up in the Panama Papers leak, dead at 71. He and his partner and law firm were also generally caught up in a bunch of other corruption and money-laundering scandals and were associated with a bunch of despotic regimes: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-68986408

    Jack Quinn, former White House council for Bush and Gore between 1995 and 1997 (doesn't seem to have done anything of note though), dead at 74: https://www.washingtonpost.com/obituaries/2024/05/09/jack-quinn-white-house-counsel/ Chrisn Cannon, former Republican member of the US House of Representatives from Utah (from 1997 to 2009) dead at 73: https://kslnewsradio.com/2101265/former-rep-chris-cannon-dies/

    The Lord of the Rings

    nah, the rights to the Silm is still with the estate per news, it;s a Gollum movie, likely Gandalf and Aragorn's search for Gollum or the Mirkwood elves losing him and then searching for him

    Guessing the unique nature of a former head of government choosing euthanasia, especially at the same time with his wife, made him additionally notable
