    Fundraising, campaigning, blogging - should only count towards notability if the person began it before they became ill.

    I would have voted no.

    Widow(er) Shopping

    I think this isn't the first time she's been wrongly reported to have died.

    COVID 19 - Second Wave

    They do. This happened in the village shop this week, and on being told to leave one of the little fuckers spat on the windows.

    Ironic Deaths

    I read somewhere that he tasered himself in the balls while attempting to steal a painting.

    Donald J Trump

    Feminism? They'd tear him to shreds in there. I recommend he tries the "Am I Being Unreasonable" section.

    DSCDP

    But if you had read "all 9 pages of chat" you would have seen that eight of the pages are about last year's game.
  9. A pick for me a couple of years back before she hit 90. I knew her from "Cooking In A Bedsitter" which most people had when I was a student.

    Me too, and I always feel like it's cheating.

    There's still time for him to create more mayhem. He needs locking up pronto.

    Why hasn't this dangerous and deranged person been arrested and charged with treason?

    Hartlepool Deadlypool 2020

    Well done to Mary, and I'm delighted to have led the table at some point as I'm usually nowhere in contention. I tend to select diverse candidates with some who aren't on my other DP teams to spread the interest, rather than going for certainties. It's not a recipe for success

    Hollywood Possibilities

    I thought that was for socio-political reasons, not biological? Regardless of race, she was a celebrity, which comes with a few advantages in terms of living standards...In any case, it worked out for you, so congrats on your 11 points. If "ethnic minority" is a mealy-mouthed way of saying she was black, then it opens the possibility of Vitamin D deficiency, which can worsen the effects of Covid-19. The darker the skin, the less efficient it is at processing sunlight into Vitamin D, which is presumably why people who migrated further from the equator evolved lighter skin. So yes, there is a biological factor, but it doesn't apply to all "ethnic minorities". Like it or not, this really is about how dark your skin is. We're all deficient in Vit D in the winter anyway if we depend on exposure to sunlight.

    A Night To Remember

    The eve of the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic seems a good time to consider the status of the cast of the 1958 film "A Night To Remember". Still thought by many to be the best Titanic film, it is packed with famous names and familiar faces, many uncredited. (I still haven't managed to spot Sean Connery, mind you.) Below, courtesy of IMDB, is the complete cast list (or so it says). I've attached year of death where applicable, and year of birth where no death is indicated. The latter are highlighted in red. Names in green are those for whom no dates are supplied by IMDB. Please note all the data is taken from IMDB and I have not cross-checked any of it, so there may be some errors. I have not included film crew, but note that all the principals (director, writers, producer) have departed.

    COVID 19 - Second Wave

    That was the thing - he was going to have to wait a month for that. Our practice is shit though. Around the time that the covid thing started, a friend developed serious gastric problems. They gave her some antibiotics which didn't do anything and then she was basically ignored, very ill in bed for three weeks with doctors failing to ring back. Eventually her husband drove her to the surgery and insisted they do something for her. She was admitted to hospital and needed major surgery. Our doctors are fucking useless.

    Donald J Trump

    Note this is the Capitol police. Were they following instructions from Trump?

    Donald J Trump

    "Voters who believe enough fraud took place at the presidential election to change the outcome" No mention there of people who supported the attacks. If that was the pool, I would expect it to be nearer 100%.

    Donald J Trump

    That last one seems spurious. 56% of ALL voters believe Trump's claims of election fraud? Come on. That makes me doubt all those figures.

    There's nearly a whole year to go yet. My mother was dead within two weeks of a scan that showed her tumour shrunk to 20% of its size. Just saying.
