    ALS/MND/other degenerative diseases

    https://www.instagram.com/p/CMxOYadMoVZ/ Tempt One, graffiti artist who has had ALS since 2003 auctioning his art to pay hospital bills. He's been mentioned on this forum a few times and I'm suprised he's still alive. According to another instagram post he now spends all of his time in a hospital bed and communicates through an eye writer tool he also uses to create art.

    People I Was Surprised To Find Are Still Alive

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippe_Leroy_(actor) Philippe Leroy! Got to 90 last month. Saw him today in a 2009 episode of the Italian crime show Don Matteo starring Terence Hill. Leroy is 90 now, but already looked ancient back then. And apparently he's also still working.

    Bob Uecker

    I don't recognize him (As well as many other of these celebs that aren't internationally famous, especially musicians, as I'm not a large fan of music and musicians seem to never die) but looks so rough I don't have any problem with the thread. From what I've now read from a few sources I got the picture that he's the Murray Walker of MLB?

    Prince Ernst August of Hanover

    https://mobil.mopo.de/news/promi-show/prozessauftakt--pruegelprinz--ernst-august-von-hannover--ihm-droht-der-knast--38213146 Once again in legal trouble. Can't find an English version of this article but he was apparently threathening people with a knife and screamed at the people trying to help him. I read from another place that his house was full of alcohol bottles and there were a lot of opened painkiller packages on a table.

    World's Oldest

    From the "Oldest people alive as of 11th of February 2021" list the first one out of the 14 listed is dead: https://www.blogdomatuto.com.br/pages/artigo.php?p1=39248-familiares-lamenta-o-falecimento-de-dona-diolinda-de-114-anos-uma-das-mulheres-mais-idosa-da-cidade-de-gravata Unvalidated Diolinda Maria da Conceicao died already on 4th of March. Claimed to be 114 and she did look like it. Died six days before her possible 115th birthday. If confirmed, she would've been the 7th oldest person alive at the time of her death. Also: longevity claimant Julia Amelia da Conceicao (same surname) died yesterday at the claimed age of 115, near her "116th": https://www.miseria.com.br/ultimas-noticias/cariri/morre-em-juazeiro-perto-dos-116-anos-a-mulher-mais-idosa-do-ceara/

    Watched the video, she looked unwell. Wouldn't be suprised if we get a situation similar to what happened in Ivory Coast

    The 100 Club

    January 1921 births seem to be a much stronger group than February or March 1921 births. There are twelve people with wikipedia articles born in January 1921 who are still alive plus two notable ones who don't have English wikipedia pages but are listed on the living centenarians list. February 1921 has eight centenarians, but atleast Hazel McCallion and Herbert Köfer are still pretty active and in good shape, atleast mentally. March 1921 has five this far

    Buzz Aldrin

    Aldrin's a big name and unlike all the mainly healthy 30-60 year olds who've got a thread in case they prematurely die/have had bad health problems or other problems once (Meghan, Robert Bales, Victoria Beckham, David Cameron, Clooney, Culkin, Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, Katie Hopkins, Joseph Kony, Mohammad Mushtaq, Keanu Reeves...) he won't go on forever and we'll all probably live long enough to see that red "dead" sign next to old Buzz's name in five years
