    The 100 Club

    Phyllis Latour joins the 100 club on 8th of April. https://www.military.com/daily-news/2021/04/03/worlds-oldest-living-air-force-general-just-turned-107.html Also, Harry E. Goldsworthy celebrated his 107th a few days ago. He spends his days mostly reading "nonsense fiction," he said. He's spent the last year "living a lot like a hermit" due to the COVID-19 pandemic. His two sons were finally able to visit him last month for the first time since it began, he said. He talks to his great-nephews -- one an F-35 pilot, the other a chaplain in the Army -- from time to time. "All my Air Force buddies are long gone. That's one of the penalties to living to be 107," Goldsworthy said. https://abc7.com/oldest-living-general-celebrates-107th-birthday-riversides-oldest-general-harry-goldsworthy-lieutenant/10485098/ Told abc7 that the secret to a long life is taking a vodka shot every night before bed.

    World War II Veterans

    I was wondering how many recipients of the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross are alive or could be alive... What I found: WIKIPEDIA: Hugo Broch (born 1922) Luftwaffe ace. Still looked great at 95. Most likely won't die off radar. Heinz Rafoth (born 1923) According to warrelics.eu, was alive in 2020 Johann Hans Trummer (born 1920) According to the same site, was alive in 2020 Jakob Kuchar (born 1923) Mentioned alive in 2020, but I can't find any other source confirming this Lorenz Neumayr (born 1926) Mentioned possibly alive on the same site. However in a later post it is mentioned that he is probably dead. Helmut Wieselhuber (born 1922) Mentioned alive by the axishistory forum in 2010 and by warrelics.eu in 2020 Gerhard Zoppoth (born 1923) Mentioned alive by warrelics eu in 2020 Ones that have died since January 2020: Ludwig Bauer (1923-2020) Paul-Georg Kleffel (1920-2020) WIKIPEDIA: Karl-Günther von Hase (born 1917-2021) German Ambassador to the United Kingdom 1970-1977.

    Video Game Nerds

    Gabe "GabeN" Newell, co-founder of game developer Valve known for games such as Team Fortress 2, the Half-Life series and Counter-Strike looks horrible in these shots recorded for a fan music video from around a week ago. If you compare this to what he looked in this video from ten months ago, he looks like he's aged atleast 10 years. Hopefully it's nothing serious

    I wonder if Sayasone was even badly wounded in the accident. This could balance the game between the three Zambians and the three Laotians, I was pretty sure he'd outlive all of the others.
