    Hollywood Possibilities

    As film director Cecil B. DeMille (1881-1959) is mentioned in the description of this thread, I decided to check how many main DeMille actors are alive. The list isn't large: Samson and Delilah (1949): Angela Lansbury (born 1925) Russ Tamblyn (born 1934) The Ten Commandments (1956): Debra Paget (born 1933) Fraser Clarke Heston (born 1955) DeMille as executive producer: When Worlds Collide (1951): Barbara Rush (born 1927) Rachel Ames (born 1929) The War of the Worlds (1953): Ann Robinson (born 1929) The Buccaneer (1958): Claire Bloom (born 1931) DeMille also had cameos in: Glamour Boy (1941), only alive actor is Darryl Hickman (born 1931) Sunset Boulevard (1950), only alive actor is Nancy Olson (born 1928) Son of Paleface (1952), only alive actor is Sylvia Lewis (born 1931) The Buster Keaton Story (1957), only alive actor is Ann Blyth (born 1928)

    Political Frailty

    I was thinking about the term "Gang of Four" today, and was wondering if it's been used more than two times. Yes, it has. So, more useless lists! As most of us know, the original Gang of Four was four Chinese politicians: Jiang Qing (1914-1991) Zhang Chunqiao (1917-2005) Yao Wenyan (1930-2005) Wang Hongwen (1935-1992) So here's a list of other political gangs of four, only 1900s ones included: Afghanistan, Khalqist govt ministers: Mohammad Aslam Watanjar (1946-2000) Sayed Mohammad Gulabzoy (born 1951) Sherjan Mazdooryar (?) Assadullah Sarwari (born 1930) Pakistan: First one, supporters of Zia-Ul-Haq: Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq (1924-1988) Akhtar Rahman (1924-1988) Rahimuddin Khan (born 1924) Zahid Ali Akbar (born 1933) Second one, supporters of Musharraf: Ehsan ul-Haq (born 1949) Aziz Khan (born 1947) Mahmood Ahman (born 1944) Shahid Aziz (birth date unknown, probably died in 2018) USA: Harlem, African-american political coalition: David Dinkins (1927-2020) Basil Paterson (1926-2014) Charles Rangel (born 1930) Percy Sutton (1920-2009) Seattle, radical minority activists: Bernie Whitebear (1937-2000) Bob Santos (1934-2016) Roberto Maestas (1938-2010) Larry Gossett (born 1945) Pro-Contra, Nicaraguan contra-founding group: Bernard W. Aronson (born 1946) Bruce P. Cameron (possibly 1942-2018) Robert S. Leiken (1939-2017) Penn Kemble (1941-2005) I'm pretty sure the SDP Gang of Four will outlive atleast two of these groups.

    World's Oldest

    Another Brazilian possible supercentenarian dead at 114: https://tribunamulungu.com.br/2021/04/02/morre-em-paulo-afonso-aos-114-anos-dona-inocencia-mulher-mais-velha-da-bahia/ Another of these Brazilian women who appear out of nowhere and say they're 110+, usually claim to be born 1906. An annoying case that has been bothering me for the last few days is this Greek woman Eleftheria who claims to have been born on 12th of April 1903. I'd say that she's probably atleast 15 years less. The current top 10 validated oldest people seem to be indestructible.

    1. Prince Philip Duke Of Edinburgh

    I don't think they were close enough to Phil to get to top 30. But anyways, here they are: Prince Georg Andreas Heinrich of Hohenlohe-Langenburg (born 1938): Doesn't seem to like being in public much. Only a few pictures of him exist, one which I'm sure includes him from 2007. I'm not going to post it here as there are two men in the picture and I'm not 100% sure which one of them he is. Picture from 2017: Prince Maximillian Andreas Friedrich Gustav Ernst August Bernhard of Baden (born 1933): As the head of the house of Baden, he's probably the most known of the children of DoE's sisters. Looks like an hairless Stan Lee. Prince Ludwig Wilhelm Georg Ernst Christoph of Baden (born 1937): Another royal who doesn't seem to like publicity. Second picture of him with Phil and Liz. Prince Karl of Hesse (born 1937): Yet another ghoul in the family. Prince Rainer Christoph Friedrich of Hesse (born 1939): Actually born 1939. Unmarried and no issue. Princess Clarissa Alice of Hesse (born 1944): Can't find any photos of her from the last 40 years. Prince Georg of Hanover (born 1949): Friederike and Georg are from Sophie's marriage with Georg of Hanover (1915-2006). The picture is of the younger Georg with his mother in 1996. Princess Friederike of Hanover (born 1954): Another fucking mystery.

    1. Prince Philip Duke Of Edinburgh

    I made a list of the children of DoE's sisters a while ago: Children of the sisters of DoE: Princess Margarita's children (1905-1981) Stillborn daughter (1931-1931) Prince Kraft Alexander Ernst Ludwig Georg Emich (1935-2004)  Princess Beatrix Alice Marie Melita Margarete of Hohenlohe-Langenburg (1936-1997) Prince Georg Andreas Heinrich of Hohenlohe-Langenburg (born 1938)  Prince Rupprecht Sigismund Philipp Ernst of Hohenlohe-Langenburg (1944-1978) Prince Albrecht Wolfgang Christoph of Hohenlohe-Langenburg (1944-1992 Princess Theodora's children (1906-1969) Margarita Alice Thyra Viktoria Marie Louise Scholastica of Baden (1932-2013) Prince Maximillian Andreas Friedrich Gustav Ernst August Bernhard of Baden (born 1933)  Prince Ludwig Wilhelm Georg Ernst Christoph of Baden (born 1937) Princess Cecilie's children (1911-1937) Prince Ludwig of Hesse and by Rhine (1931-1937)  Prince Alexander of Hesse and by Rhine (1933-1937) Princess Johanna of Hesse and by Rhine (1936-1939) Stillborn son (1937-1937) Princess Sophie's children (1914-2001) Princess Christina Margarethe of Hesse (1933-2011) Princess Dorothea of Hesse (1934-2001) Prince Karl of Hesse (born 1937)  Prince Rainer Christoph Friedrich of Hesse (born 1937) Princess Clarissa Alice of Hesse (born 1944) Prince Welf Ernst of Hanover (1947-1981) Prince Georg of Hanover (born 1949) (The only child of Philip's sisters who isn't 70 is Princess Friederike of Hanover (born 1954, daughter of Princess Sophie))

    Each Year's Most Significant Death.

    DoE is by far the biggest death of the 2020s in my opinion. While it wasn't unexpected, probably most of the people on this planet have at some point heard of him. I can't think of many over 80 year olds more known than him, except for Elizabeth, Gorbachev, maybe Carter, Harald V and Juan Carlos

    Who are the immortals?

    My list of immortal-candidates, some with more health issues and some with less, most could be considered if they're still alive in around a year or two: Boris Pahor (born 1913) Slovene Necropolis author, holocaust survivor still alive and going to be 108 this year. Arne Konrad Eldegard (born 1917) Norwegian politician. Didn't look at the camera on his 100th birthday which can be a sign of some age-related issues, but I don't know if he has any Eduard Kuuskor (born 1918) Estonian soldier, geologist and radio operator. Looked absolutely horrible over three years ago, speaks very unclearly. As seen in that video, needed help to stand. Looks even more skeletal nowadays. Hazel McCallion (born 1921) Canadian ancient politician. Elvy Olsson (born 1923) Swedish former Minister for Housing 1976-1978. In a wheelchair for years. Ele Alenius (born 1925) The Finnish Lyssarides, a former parliament member and party leader, minister in the 60s and 70s and book writer. Had a stroke in 2018 and moved to a care home in 2021. Nikolai Ryzhkov (born 1929) Soviet official, Gorbachev's prime minister. Suffered a serious heart attack in 1990, overweight. Dries Van Agt (born 1931) Dutch politician and former prime minister. Suffered a stroke in 2019 but still doing great and smoking joints. Than Shwe (born 1933/1935) Burmese strongman and former military dictator. Has had health issues since 2006 and hasn't been seen in public for a long time despite the coup his successor organized. Kamuta Latasi and Tulaga Manuella (born 1936) Former Tuvaluan Gov-Gen and PM. No serious health issues but extremely old for Tuvaluans. Abdelaziz Bouteflika (born 1937) Algerian former dictator. Has been wheelchair-bound and frail for years and a laughingstock for Algerian twitterists because he's still alive. Paavo Lipponen (born 1941) Former Finnish prime minister. Young compared to most of the ones I've listed above but he's broken some records with heart-related issues: Hospitalized multiple times in the 1990s and 2000s, heart problems started in 2012, got a heart attack in 2017 and had an open-heart surgery and six bypass surgeries, hospitalized again in 2019. Wife doesn't live in the same house as Lipponen due to covid and Lipponen can't walk much nowadays. Margarita Terekhova (born 1942) Russian actress. Alzheimer's since 2006, some reports say that it started to affect her badly in 2011 and still not dead. Couldn't recognize any of her family members in 2019, can't speak, bedridden and her family doesn't have money for her treatment. Vesa-Matti Loiri (born 1945) Finnish comedian, hospitalized tens of times during the last 50 years first for using a ton of drugs, mental problems, in the 2000s and 2010s for being extremely obese, alcohol and tobacco user, was in a wheelchair for a long time in the 2010s. In new pictures, looks like he's wearing a plastic mask of himself. Levon "LTP" Ter-Petrosyan (born 1945) First President of Armenia. Heavy smoker, has had colorectal cancer. One to consider if he lives around five years. Tempt One (born 1968/1969) American graffiti artist icon extremely resisant towards ALS. He was diagnosed with it in 2003. Seems to have been bedridden for the last 9 years and communicates with his eyes. Still doing art and selling it to pay his hospital bills. As you can hear in that video from 2012 he has had near-to-death situations already back then. "Animal Immortals" Jonathan (hatched c. 1832) World's oldest tortoise, on a Saint Helena coin, internet celeb. Has lost sense of smell and is blind. Muja (born before 1938, probably 1935) World's oldest alligator, Belgrade Zoo celeb. Survived WW2's nazi occupation, Belgrade offensive, near-total destruction of the Belgrade zoo, NATO bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999. Parts of the alligator's leg was amputated in 2012 due to gangrene. Can't move much or hunt. Alphabet Soup (born 1991) Breeder's Cup Classic 1996 winner. Earliest Breeder's Cup Classic winner. Kabosu (born 2005) Internet celebrity known from the "Doge" meme. Blind, got vestibular disease last year, frail but can still walk.

    Well, now he hasn't tweeted for 3 weeks. Must be some kind of an record for him and I bet something is wrong. Lester Wolff and Jyrki Kasvi are the only people whose twitter I frequently check to see if they're still alive. Kasvi has already been in hospice care for 3 months

    Hoover also outlived his wife, and I wouldn't be suprised if Carter did too. Also, if Carter outlives Andrew Young, he'll have outlived all the 27 (34, 7 posthumously) people he awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
