    Queen Beatrix

    A new picture was posted today on the occasion of Beatrix' 85th birthday. The King is on a visit to the Caribbean territories at the moment but it is said to have been made recently. I would say she looks about her age, some wrinkles but still active and no public health scares after her positive covid-test at the end of 2021. She might well make 90 but wouldn't bet on it, longevity in the Dutch royal family is quite a recent phenomenon. While her parents passed away at 94 and 93, she is only the second descendant of King Willem I (r. 1815-1840) to make 85, the first one being her own mother Juliana.

    World's Oldest

    Susannah Mushatt Jones was the last oldest person to not make it to 117, dying in may 2016 at 116 years old. Since then we've had Morano, Brown, Tajima, Miyako, Tanaka and Randon all making it. In contrast, after the Calment/Meilleur/Knauss combo, it took more than fifteen years until Misao Okawa managed to reach 117 in 2015. So in short, only 10 confirmed cases of people living to 117 or older, of which seven occured in the last ten years!

    Mysterious thread…

    Some of the mysteries besides some of the above which I'm sometimes wondering about: 1. Who built the moʻai statues on Easter Island? 2. To what extent did stadtholder Willem III (the later King William III of England) know about the lynching of the brothers (Johan & Cornelis) De Witt in 1672? 3. The death of Rudolf Diesel in 1913. 4. The identity of Tank Man and what happened to him during/after the Tiananmen protests. Did the government get him, is he still alive somewhere? And some existential mysteries I don't expect ever being found out or confirmed: 5. How did the universe come to be and perhaps on a more philosophical note, why? 6. What is the meaning of life and does there exist some version of an afterlife? (I'm of the opinion it's unlikely there is a greater plan or afterlife, but the thought of some place where you could reunite with your loved ones after you pass away would be wonderful)

    First Celebrity Death You Remember

    And you can add me to that list, sorry @TQR Like some of the other youngsters here, I think Michael Jackson was the earliest celebrity death I can actively remember, followed by Miep Gies. I only started paying more attention to famous people who passed away around mid-2015 and probably stumbled upon this forum for the first time about a year later.

    Kill or Save: UK No.1-hits of the 80s

    All six are all right or even great songs, but if I had to choose, Call Me does beat Ghost Town. I'm sure this round will be over within hours anyway!

    Cardinal George Pell

    Ofcourse that thing with minors had to come back to him in some way But have to agree, quite a shock compared to the lingering Constantine II passing away.

    You didn't translate it from Portugese to English so most of us here can't read it without pulling it through google translate

    Scavenger Hunt Bingo Deadpool V

    Two uniques: Thelma Ruby for Coronation Street and Kanye West for Brit Awards winners (one can hope) Just missed out on a unique in F1 as @arghton and I both have Keke Rosberg. Of the living world champions born mid-1940's and later he seems to be the frailest (since we don't know anything concrete about Schumacher).
