    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.

    Thoughts and Opinions on the 2021 Deathlist

    I'd add Bob Barker and Abdelaziz Bouteflika to the list. There's been discussion on Barker and doesn't sound like he'll be here long enough to see 2022. Bouteflika is surrounded by a medical team at all times. I would also add Imelda Marcos (hasn't been seen in over a year) to the list but her grandson can't wait to see her when the quarantine ends and says she "outpaces us with restlessness energy" so it seems like the shoe collector isn't going to be our next hit.

    Who's Going To Be Around For A While?

    Out of the people who have a DL thread, probably: Julian Assange. I'd say he won't die of natural causes atleast in the next 15 years. Robert Bales. Because this bastard didn't get a death penalty, I don't think he's going anywhere. Banksy. Romeo Beckham. Probably the dumbest possible thread, made for a three year old child who suffered from convulsions. Almost forgot Meghan and Harry. Hugh Bonneville isn't going anywhere soon (I think, who knows) Jeremy Corbyn. Not in the next 10 years I'd say Macaulay Culkin. Good example why you should never expect someone under 40yrs old who isn't terminally ill to die within a year or a few years. Culkin looked frail, was frail but got over his problems and will probably be here for atleast 20 years. Saif al-Islam Gaddafi. Same as the above. Al Gore. Thread was made because he retired. That was 16 years ago. I wouldn't be suprised if old Al is still here with us for another 16 years, both of his parents lived to their 90s and the Gore is healthy. Nur Malena Hassan. Thread made for...a scorpion owner? James Major, John Major's child. plus all the other 10 murderers who've got a thread here

    Notable Coronavirus Victims

    India's struggling with COVID. Indians we've lost 29.4, 30.4 and 1.5 to covid: 29.4: Riyaz Ahmad (b. 1958) 5-time Member of the Legislative Assembly Rajendrasingh Baghel (b. 1945) Longtime politician Laxman Giluwa (b. 1964) Parliament member 2014-2019 30.4: Chandro Tomar (b. 1932) Sharpshooter, internet fame Sanjivi Sundar (b. 1938/1939) Transport secretary, bureaucrat Jagdish Lad (b. 1977/1978) Bodybuilder K. V. Anand (b. 1966) Bollywood cinematographer, COVID and cardiac arrest. 1.5: Debu Chaudhuri (b. 1935) Sitarist, also had dementia Mohammad Shahabuddin (b. 1967) Parliament member, murderer Bikramjeet Kanwarpal (b. 1968) Actor A cruel but important question to us: Who's next? Chandro Tomar's sister Prakashi Tomar (b. 1937) is probably not vaccinated yet. Kumar Aiyappan Pillai (b. 1914) probably vaccinated Pratibha Patil (b. 1934) Probably vaccinated, as well as the former prime ministers. Philipose Chrysostom (1918-2021) Religious leader. Hospitalized on sunday for COVID symptoms but tested negative. If he won't catch covid, he'll probably die of something else this year. Or go on for another couple of years. Gowri Amma (1919-2021) recently survived covid but how long does she have? Randhir Kapoor (b. 1947) recently lost his sister Ritu Nanda (1948-2020) and brothers Rishi Kapoor (1952-2020) and Rajiv Kapoor (1962-2021). Currently in hospital with covid and is/was in ICU. and of course we're all afraid that Dilip Kumar (1922-2021) will catch the virus.
