    Here's the post from Young, 31st of December:

    And to be direct, I'll put it this way: two of the world's top three are receiving treatment beyond normal daily medical care. You can figure out what that means.

     

    End of a small era when it happens. I hope Tanaka makes it to 119, getting to the age Knauss was doesn't seem very likely.

    Oh! Me too I hope that this is not Randon...

    Well, not unexpected at all. I had him on a list of "dying people" about three years ago and he was the last survivor.

    Not many reports of ill health or hospitalisations though.

    Of course, he was still a 92.5-year-old man.

    When are we going to start an abdication sweep stake?

     

    I’ve always thought that her comments on the matter have perhaps been taken too literally. One could argue that she has already served her whole life.

     

    Abdicating at 95 after a 70 year reign is also a whole different kettle of fish to abdicating after 11 months for some tart…

    I had started a similar topic here

    Etel Adnan a hit for @WEP.
    Congratulations. :D
     

    https://www.nytimes.com/2021/11/14/obituaries/etel-adnan-dead.html

     

    next round:

     

    1921 Wanda Półtawska / George Elder
    1922 Lucía Hiriart / Ronald Blythe
    1923 Pamela Sharples, Baroness Sharples / Bob Barker
    1924 Countess Marianne Bernadotte of Wisborg / Leslie Phillips
    1925 June Lockhart / Michel Bouquet
    1926 Irene Papas / Carl Erskine
    1927 Pat Carroll / Harry Belafonte
    1928 Nancy Olson / Charles Strouse
    1929 Joan Plowright / Don January
    1930 Joanne Woodward / Jean-Louis Trintignant

    Irene Papas was most probably born in 1929.

    BREAKING: QUEEN CANCELS ALL EVENTS FOR REST OF YEAR  

    The Queen is planning to rest at Windsor Castle in the run up to the end of 2021, carrying out only light duties for the rest of the year. On Sunday, the monarch missed the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph. The Queen, who is believed to have suffered a sprained back, has also cancelled an appearance at the General Synod on Tuesday, marking the first time she will have missed her five-yearly visit to the Church’s national assembly in its 51-year history.

     

    Taking it easy can be beneficial.

    Eileen Ash on her 110th.

     

     

    I feel like soon we might enter an era where there will be no living notable supercentenarians. Not mentioning the ones who might not be the age they claim to be, there are only six notable centenarians born before 1914 currently:

     

    1. Stanisław Kowalski (1910-) Polish masters athlete and reason why the M105 WMA division was created in 2015, in great condition and potential future World's Oldest Man. The current world's oldest man is only 14 months older than he is.

    2. Marita Camacho Quiros (1911-) First Lady of Costa Rica 1962-1966, widow of Francisco Orlich Bolmarcich (1907-1969). Wheelchair-bound and likely a dementia sufferer.

    3. Eileen Ash (1911-) Cricketer, played seven test matches for England 1937-1949. Declined during the last year, could turn out to be a strong one though.

    4. Jessie Lichauco (1912-) Cuban-born American-Filipino philanthropist, turned her house into a makeshift hospital during WWII, widow of diplomat Marcial Lichauco (1902-1971). Frail and in a wheelchair.

    5. Dagny Carlsson (1912-) Swedish blogger and television personality. Has suffered from lung-related troubles, moved to a nursing home and recently donated her house to a cancer research foundation.

    6. Boris Pahor (1913-) Slovene novelist living in Italy known for Necropolis. Has looked horrible for over a decade, skeletal for the last three years and looked like an eldritch abomination on his 108th last month. However he can still walk.

     

    1914 still has 10 living notable people. Mark my words, atleast one will make it to 110.

    Jessie Lichauco dead

    Picture from Italian-born Brazilian supercentenarian Delio Venturotti's (25 Oct 1909-) 112th birthday, a week ago.

     

    He's one of the seven (less or more) living men born before 1910 with:

     

    Saturnino de la Fuente Garcia (11 Feb 1909-) Spain

    Ivo Gomes Barbosa (15 May 1909-) Brazil

    Juan Vicente Perez Mora (27 May 1909-) Venezuela

    Marcel Meys (12 July 1909-) France

    Geraldo de Jesus (2 Aug 1909-) Brazil

    Lawrence Brooks (12 Sept 1909-) United States

    and Venturotti, all 112.

     

    Geraldo de Jesus is bedridden but lucid, Saturnino is in a wheelchair. The others seem to still be able to stand, Brooks could stand on his 112th without any aid.

    I am curious to see if we will finaly have a 114th male birthday again. There are now many 112+ men and they look strong.

    Depends how long the Queen goes on for if she lives as long as her mother did she will be around until late 2027 or early 2028 meaning Charles will 79 going on 80 when the Queen finally goes, if that is the case I can’t see Charles lasting 10 years on the throne as he won’t live as long as his parents have as I don’t think Charles is as healthy as Philip or the Queen were at the same age. 

    In that case the throne will immediately go to William in my opinion...

    Well, duh she should be on the 2022 DL, and the 2023 DL. She's old enough, famous enough and while her health isn't "she'll die tomorrow", she's clearly starting to age. By her standards, which is glacially, of course. 

     

    Bigger question for me is not will the Queen be dropped. It's "when does Pope Francis get on the list"? I feel like he's going downhill at a faster rate than even Benny.

    No real reason to be put in the deathlist just because she is " starting to age ".

    She ages slowly and steadily.

    If nothing more comes out until the end of the year I don't think that there is a big probability of death in 2022.
