    33. Walter Mondale

    "I always knew it would be okay if I arrived some place and was greeted by one of you" - a bit sinister under the circumstances...

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    Oddly I think a SCOTUS vacancy opening up would probably help Trump, to an extent that it's not impossible the GOP would conveniently 'fail' to confirm a nominee. With a Justice on the line the pitch to conservative Christians becomes - hold your nose, vote for me, and Roe v Wade gets overturned. My evidence is that that was the pitch in 2016 too: https://www.cnbc.com/2016/10/19/trump-ill-appoint-supreme-court-justices-to-overturn-roe-v-wade-abortion-case.html .

    Dead Pop Stars

    The band's three pre-Autobahn albums have never been issued on CD and go pretty much unacknowledged. They aren't much like the A-material - apparently the second one doesn't have any synths on.

    Boris Johnson

    That's not unusual for his children.

    Boris Johnson

    He's had enough of being PM, it's boring and he can't fuck around any more. So he's faking his own death. "The funeral will be closed-casket with no cameras and take place on Cayo Espanto."

    Jesus, have some thought, I just ate.

    Hillary Clinton

    I'd be quite happy with someone bringing a pillow to the White House now and causing his funeral.

    George Bush Senior

    Surely there's a decent chance Gorby will outlive him.

    Pegging in office sounds more like Bill's thing.

    Sister Wendys' Odyssey

    The confusion came because the journalists asked "Is she the oldest?" and they responded "There's nun older".

    Boxing Clever?

    Well, at least he wasn't in any pain.

    Terrorists & Topical Terrorist Targets

    Does Asia Bibi count as a 'terrorist target'? She is surely at considerable risk of being killed (albeit that risk would go away very quickly if she is, as she should be, given asylum, and it's more of a risk for the remainder of 2018 rather than into 2019) and would definitely obit here.

    Video Game Nerds

    I'm very glad to see his passing being marked (there was an article on Variety too). Him and many others like him may not be household names but very influential through their work and deserve the notice.

    Shipwrecks and other watery deaths

    Do you think as they were hauling him out on the stretcher they were saying "Tomy" "To you"

    Julia Roberts

    She does it and gets in the news, I do it and no one gives a shiny fuck. No justice.
