    Joe Biden

    I'd say Clinton and Carter (Carter maybe this or next year) will be the first ones to go, during Biden's tenure. Trump at the end of the 2020s, Biden at the start of the 2030s. I'd say most of the "Biden is senile" rumors going around are complete bullshit, from what I've seen he's always been somewhat weird. His mother lived to her 90s and father to 82, and he looks better than most of his age. Of course the stress of the presidency and his prior health issues could shorten his life. Bush will go around 2040 and Obama in the 2050s. All of these will of course be wrong as Carter will live to 107, Bush and Obama die from heart attack and cancer in 2025, Trump will celebrate his 100th birthday in a wheelchair, Biden will die from a brain clot in three days (or live to his 100s) and Clinton will outlive them all.

    General Non School Massacre Thread

    Could also do a list like that about the Cambodian genocide. This is much smaller though, as most of them are already dead: Khieu Samphan (born 1931) head of state under Pol Pot, last surviving senior member of the Khmer rouge. Mam Nai (born 1934) lieutenant of Santebal, Kang Kek Iew's second hand man described as the "most terrifying Khmer Rouge individual" Chhouk Rin (birth year unknown, around 1953) Khmer Rouge commander charged for killing tourists. In "poor health" in 2004, has/had AIDS, last mentioned in 2011.

    General Non School Massacre Thread

    I noticed that 71-year old Francois Bazaramba is asking if he could go on parole after around 13 years in jail for genocide https://www.iltalehti.fi/kotimaa/a/e7c6ef90-c097-4c26-9031-096e4353ceda I decided to check how many other notable people involved in the Rwandan genocide that happened in 1994 are still alive: Felicien Kabuga (born 1933), the financer of the genocide is still alive at 87 and was caught last year. He'll most likely spend the rest of his life in jail. Hassan Ngeze (born 1957), co leader of the Hutu militia Impuzamugambi is serving a 35-year sentence in Mali since 1997. Others: Jean-Paul Akayesu (born 1953), teacher and mayor who personally supervised killings and provided "death lists" Theoneste Bagosora (born 1941) sometimes called the chief organizer of the killings is, like Ngeze, serving a 35-year sentence in Mali. Valerie Bemeriki (born 1955) is serving a life sentence in Rwanda for promoting the genocide. Chief of Staff Augustin Bizimungu (born 1952) is in jail and will most likely be there for the rest of his life unless he lives to 89. Jean de Dieu Kamuhanda (born 1953), minister of higher education is serving a life sentence too. Prime Minister Jean Kambanda (born 1955) is serving a life sentence. Commerce Minister Justin Mugenzi (born 1939), couldn't find much information Leon Musegera (born 1952) was deported from Canada to Rwanda in 2016 and sentenced to a life imprisonment. Desire Munyaneza (born 1966) is in jail in either Canada or Rwanda. Wenceslas Munyeshyaka (born 1958) is currently a priest in France. Ferdinand Nahimana (born 1950) was released in 2016. Ildephonse Nizeyimana (born 1963) is imprisoned by ICTR. Pauline Nyiramasuhuko (born 1947) is the only woman convicted by ICTR. Tharcisse Renzaho (born 1944) is serving a life imprisonment. Minister of "Justice" Agnes Rutagwera (born 1937) is serving a life imprisonment in Rwanda. Athanase Seromba (born 1963) is serving a life imprisonment in Benin. Spy chief Pascal Simpikangwa (born 1959) is serving a 25 year imprisonment.

    Martti Ahtisaari

    Thread for discussion about Martti Ahtisaari, former Finnish president (1994-2000), peace negotiator and global elder emeritus. Ahtisaari is overweight and recently survived COVID-19. He or his wife Eeva have not been seen in public much since that. He's one of the five global elder emeriti along with Jimmy Carter, Desmond Tutu, Fernando Cardoso and Ela Bhatt.

    Authors Last A Long Time, But....

    https://www.iltalehti.fi/viihdeuutiset/a/af722f26-5cf2-4f0a-86a1-b5e9baf49ab1 Sinikka Nopola known for the children's book series Risto Räppääjä (Ricky Rapper) dead at only 67. This book series is known by probably everyone in Finland and there have been multiple movies based on these books. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ricky_Rapper Another thing she and her sister were known of was "Heinähattu ja Vilttitossu" another children's book series featuring two young sisters. Hasn't been mentioned what killed her, but apparently she had been sick for a while now.
