    Caballero didn't look good on her 114th birthday. This is a pretty weird one, there isn't nearly anything about her known.

    Terrorists & Topical Terrorist Targets

    Not exactly a terrorist but Indonesian social media (tiktok, twitter, etc) preacher Maaher At-Thuwailibi died a couple of days ago at 28 in police custody. He did apparently help working class citizens somehow during the COVID pandemic, didn't find how but apparently he also was a wife & child beater, wrote death threaths to an activist and threathened to kill or harm an actress. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maaher_At-Thuwailibi

    1. Prince Philip Duke Of Edinburgh

    Yeah, he did have 90th birthday coins (five different types) so I'm pretty sure he will get 100th birthday coins if he lives so far. Here's one 90th birthday coin, the only variant which wasn't made from silver/gold: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces17304.html

    7. George P. Shultz

    Always thought Shultz would be still alive long after Kissinger's death. Remember the 2015 january code pink protests and John McCain calling the protestors "low-life scum"? Would never have thought Kissinger would be alive six years later, just look at him there, looking so old and frail compared to Shultz

    Political Frailty

    Kind of a big name in Finland, atleast his cancer-related news has always been on the front pages of Finnish tabloids. Not a notable politician (except for being a member of the Finnish parliament for 16 years, however I don't remember him accomplishing anything) but an interesting personality most known for being a computer nerd, making a Klingon version of his campaign site in 2007 (https://www.reuters.com/article/oukoe-uk-finland-klingon-1-idUKL0929094420070313) and his cancer battle.
