    Missing In Action

    There's a load of people whose whereabouts remain unknown, but may be worth a punt and points if selected on a deadpool. A few obvious - Lucan, Bin Laden etc - get mentioned. But if we pool our collective brains we might hit on a few more. Like Bambi Woods age, whereabouts, real name uncertain. I'd say alive and willing the world to leave her alone, but you never know. C'mon guys, who else is missing in action?
  3. I'm guessing the DDP and HPDP will throw up loads of candidates fit for a paragraph and unfit for a busy thread or proper obit. Mebbe a good idea to collect such creatures on one thread so's those of us with an - ahem - sporting interest can keep tabs on 'em. I'll cop for having such an interest in Rachil Jonze, who might just be this year's Ms Groves. Similarly Ian McNicol may afford us that combination of brief media coverage and ongoing ranter fire we've come to know and love over the years. and Dawn Hughes' illness was the subject of television coverage as part of Channel 4's 'Mummy Diaries.' She's also made appearances on BBC television and the BBC web site, her husband works for the Beeb. Then there's everyone's favourite pin up: Winnie Langley. I took a long-shot punt on her for the DDP mainly because I thought if she went the various papers who'd covered her 100th birthday wouldn't be able to resist running that great picture again. Anyone else gonna cop for long shot picks before OoO and NAP do their duty and reveal all?

    Magicians And Hypnotists

    Was a bit suspicious of this at first - I mean, if he'd pulled some stunt and emerged an hour later he's raised his profile massively - but event the Beeb is treating this as a probable death

    Been To Any Good Gigs Lately?

    Paul Weller at Bedgebury last night. Beautiful forest setting, full moon hanging in the sky and a strange willingness to play Jam #1 hits! Brilliant, basically

    6. Vera Lynn

    Aye, may well be - weeks after she confirmed he was still going at 102

    6. Vera Lynn

    Can't say I've followed all the links since I last linked to an interview with her over two years ago but... Her big brother was still alive then. Any mentions of him recently?

    Lara Roxx

    Incidentally So far as I can tell from following the links on Wiki Lara Roxx remains alive despite suicide attempts, seeing the inside of a psychiatric ward and crack addiction and 55 year old Darren James who infected her on set with HIV was last seen working as a security guard. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inside_Lara_Roxx

    Lara Roxx

    When the dust settled on the scare that resulted from her positive test does anyone know how many practising pornsters were also found to have HIV? Roughly when will we expect them to join our annual top 50?

    A Joke

    A couple of Halibut women from Leeds are looking through an old photograph album. 'Oh look,' says one, 'there's my son on his first day at school, and here he is in the school play, and here with his football team...' 'Ah the children,' says her friend, 'They blow up so fast these days.' C'mon guys, share a few rib ticklers with us.

    World's Oldest

    Shame she lives in Sevenoaks - if it was Barrow in Furness we could riff on about a Payne in the arse until she died

    Comics & Comedy Writers

    The Comedians was massive once over but it's strange that IMBD - normally a mecca for anorak who know their facts - doesn't post a birthdate for half the performers. Has anyone around the UK noticed the likes of Charlie Daze playing a local club? How many of this lot are still alive? Some of them will be well into their seventies now, late nights, loadsa fags and drink, stressful job. We could have us some future winners here.

    The Dead of 2019

    FFS - What a week for my dead pool picks of 2017 and 2018!

    Suicidal Celebs

    I think it might be a good idea to pool our information on high profile hari kari contenders. If you google celeb suicide there's such a wealth of information you have to wade through loads to find the likeliest contenders. Obviously some criminals - Huntley for one - are key contenders but there are loads of others with a history of attempts and/or depression. Some of whom have already come close. Stephen Fry confessed as much on TV last week, others - like Vinnie Jones - have also come withing touching distance of the void. How many DL contenders do we know who've attempted it and/or confessed to comin' close?

    Morgan Tsvangirai

    A marked man, according to the link. And planning to return to Zimbabwe. In need of his own thread I reckon, if only so's we get familiar with the right spelling of his name.

    Ladies football World Cup (Predict the score)

    PB - since you have an interest here If Fort William lined up against the Scotland Women - who'd win? Thought the Scots lasses showed admirable possessive skill and some deft passing on Sunday. England, by contrast, seem to have gone backwards since the last management change.

    Terrorists & Topical Terrorist Targets

    There are those in public life willing to take a stand against terrorism and the sociopathic headcases who volunteer to carry out the worst acts thereof. It struck me listening to Judge Leonie Brinkema's remarks as she told the only person convincted of involvement in 9/11 that he would 'Die with a whimper' that some of these people may be signing their own death warrants. Her words might play well in middle America but I'll bet somewhere in darkest Afghanistan there's a bloke logged on to the only computer in the street, typing in her name and asking the big question: 'Where does that bitch live?' I think we need a thread that can bob up and down identifying these semi-suicidal outspoken types when their mouths put their entire well-being in danger.
