    Kill or Save: UK No.1 Hits of the 10s

    Thanks @TQR!! And apologies accepted, he has some good songs in my opinion but I understand not all of it is, ehm, perfect! Thanks to you as well @Book!! And I think that might be true, Perfect was the wedding song of my wife's uncle and aunt too back in 2018. We chose two songs for our wedding to reflect both of our tastes; an instrumental version of Show Yourself (Frozen II) and Mr. Blue Sky

    Kill or Save: UK No.1 Hits of the 10s

    Wow, this list of no1 hits takes me back. Most of them were released around the time when I met my (then) girlfriend, and multiple of them (yes, including Ed Sheeran) were sort-of anthems of our early relationship. Since then, we've graduated, both lost multiple loved ones, but also got our first appartment and registered our partnership last month, becoming husband and wife. Anyways, bye Despacito. 17/07/2024 29 Harry Styles — Sign Of The Times 24 Mike Posner — I Took A Pill In Ibiza 22 Clean Bandit — Rockabye 22 Camila Cabello ft.

    Political Frailty

    Even if Carter doesn't outlive all of them, it won't be long before they're all gone. Goldschmidt was the youngest surviving one by almost a decade, having passed away four days shy of his 84th birthday. As you've shown, the other three are in their mid to late nineties and could realistically pass away at any moment. There are three living secretaries from the Ford administration as well; John Knebel (87), David Matthews (88) and Carla Hills (90). It wouldn't surprise me if they outlived Carters remaining secretaries as they're all slightly "younger".

    Political Frailty

    Ton van Baars (1922) (CDA, 1980-1981; 1982-1986) seems to be the oldest living former member of the House of Representatives. While political databases state him to be alive, I can't really find any recent sources supporting this. Reehorst (PvdA, 1956-1967) was the last living representative who was in office during the cabinets of Wim Drees, who was a member of the PvdA as well. According to my research, the five earliest surviving Dutch representatives all came into office following the 1967 national elections or shortly thereafter: Elected at the Dutch elections of 1967: Nico Verlaan (1932) Boerenpartij: 1967-1971; independent: 1971 Minne Dijkstra (1937) D66: 1967-1972 Anneke Goudsmit (1933) D66: 1967-1974 Erwin Nypels (1933) D66: 1967-1972; 1974-1982; 1982-1989 First became a representative after the formation of the new cabinet De Jong: Hans Wiegel (1941) VVD: 1967-1971; 1971-1977; 1981-1982

    Political Discussions And Ranting Thread

    News flash in the Netherlands: Dick Schoof (67) is the intended candidate of the incoming coalition to become prime minister. He has been secretary-general of the Ministry of Justice and Security since 2020. Schoof hasn't been active in politics up until this point and is not a member of a political party, but has been a longtime civil servant. In the last decade, he was National Coordinator for Security and Counterterrorism, 2013-2018 and Director-General of the General Intelligence and Security Service, 2018-2020. In the coming weeks, he'll select people for his cabinet (of course working together with the coalition leaders), the new cabinet is expected to be sworn in in the first week of July. A case of "I've heard the name, know the face, he usually doesn't come across as an idiot but I don't know what I can expect from him as a prime minister".

    Thanks for hosting this game @diego! Zhu Rongji please. The (eventual) end of this game will mean there are no living former state leaders born in the 1920's.

    Summer Olympic Deaths/Dead Medallists

    Fanny Blankers-Koen was indeed a very notable Dutch olympian. The recently deceased Sjoukje Dijkstra (gold and silver medals in 1960 and 1964 figure skating) was also quite notable. Due to recency bias, I know loads of olympians from the last couple of decades, not that much from before. I've made a short list below of notable Dutch olympians for the summer and winter olympics before 2000, sorted by their year of debut and which games they took part in. Most of them won at least one gold medal in their respective sports, and took part in individual sports. Summer Olympics - Fanny Blankers-Koen (1918-2004) 1936, 1948, 1952 Track and field athlete who won four gold medals in the 1948 games; her being a mother and 30 years old earned her the nickname "The Flying Housewife". - Erica Terpstra (1943) 1960, 1964 Swimmer who won a silver and a bronze medal at the 1964 games in Japan. Later became a politician: a member of the house of representatives from 1977 onwards, and state secretary between 1994-1998. She later presented a travel programme, Erica op Reis. - Anton Geesink (1934-2010) 1964 Judoka who won the final in the open weight competition in 1964, the first year in which judo was an Olympic sport. - Ada Kok (1947) 1964, 1968 Swimmer who won two silver medals in 1964, and a gold medal in 1968. She was internationally known as one of the best in the butterfly stroke. - Joop Zoetemelk (1946) 1968 Racing cyclist who won gold in 1968, later in his career would win the 1980 Tour de France. - Anky van Grunsven (1968) 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012 Equestrian who competed in the dressage in all six games between 1992 and 2012, winning three gold medals, five silver ones and one bronze medal. Anky is the most famous equestrian in our country, and her two winning horses (Bonfire and Salinero) even got statues in her village after they passed away. Winter Olympics - Sjoukje Dijkstra (1942-2024) 1960, 1964 Figure skater who won a silver medal in 1960 and a gold medal in 1964. She was the first Dutch athlete to win a Winter Olympics gold medal. - Yvonne van Gennip (1964) 1984, 1988, 1992 Speed skater who won three gold medals in 1988, after injuring her foot and needing surgery less than two months before the games. - Marianne Timmer (1974) 1998, 2002, 2006 Speed skater who won three gold medals, the first two in 1998 and the last one in 2006.

    He even misspelled it as the link clearly shows his name as "Bastiaan Poortenaar". On a completely unrelated note, as a Dutchman I never heard of him either before I opened this thread.

    Political Discussions And Ranting Thread

    It looks like it will be a political experiment: PVV (Wilders), VVD, NSC and BBB have finished their talks for a coalition; their factions in parliament are reading the agreement as we speak and can suggest amendments, after that we'll probably get a government again... But who exactly that will be, is still the question. All four party leaders have said they will stay in parliament, while former coalition talks moderator Ronald Plasterk (66) has been rumoured to become Prime Minister. He is a member of the Labour party (PvdA) but has steered to the right of his party in columns during the last couple of years. If he becomes PM, he'll probably have to leave the PvdA. Other people who might join the cabinet at the moment are Fleur Agema (PVV), Mona Keijzer (BBB) and Sophie Hermans (VVD). Doesn't look like the cabinet will be filled with the brightest bunch of political talent in the Netherlands, but we're gonna have to wait and see.
