    Johan Cruijff

    Oh dear. That was sooner than I expected.
  2. I have a pretty impressive rack myself.
  3. I'm not apologising for making an obvious and harmless joke which should have led to some amusing if risqué banter. She did say she gets "interesting offers". That said, vanity is not a trait I admire.
  4. It was a joke!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Disappointed that this "joke" has resulted in the loss of a good member of this site. Perhaps sometimes people should hesitate before posting something "hilarious", taking into account the kind of person who is posting, by dint of the nature of their posting history. I appreciate in advance I will be shot down with the usual "it's an internet forum, take what you're given" angle, however maybe the line can more easily be drawn with some than with others. I hope that RC will return after some time out, I seriously do.

    Stranger Than Death

    Hang on ... the Daily Mail says he was "a block away" from the incident in Boston. That's a fair distance. And only that he was "in Paris" when last year's attacks took place. So in fact he's been involved in one terrorist attack.
  6. Is it coz you have juggs like marrows and can suck the bumper off a Land Rover?? Was that a rhetorical question? I have a fabulous rack and as for my oral skills that will have to remain in your (and Deathray's) imaginations. I do think it's the hair though. I get interesting offers; a few I'd even consider. Do these young men realise what's in store for them?

    He said that although he'd let you compete with a copycat theme, he'd punish you by not using your subs, so you compete with 18 people only. It's not a copycat team. Also, he said not using subs, I thought that meant any additional substitutes. If I'd known that he wasn't going to use the subs he'd already provided I'd have asked to submit a new team. There's a very long precedent of teams with people who died, even years before rather than days as in this case, being submitted to a competition being removed by the game runner with the subs added in their place (see any other dead pool). Oh come on. You posted that team on 14 March. Martin Crowe died on 3 March and Joey Feek on 4 March. You even posted comments on Crowe's thread on 4 March and Feek's on 5 March, so don't pretend you didn't know.

    Authors Last A Long Time, But....

    I never liked Kes either. I can't separate The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie from the film. Billy Liar is a book that made me actually laugh out loud. I've re-read it many times, but not for ages so I hardly dare revisit it. Lark Rise is difficult to classify, as it's not really fiction, more social history. It's very interesting in a family history context, especially if you have rural ancestors. I learned a lot from it, including not to assume that people who signed documents with a mark instead of a signature were illiterate.

    Each Year's Most Significant Death.

    She made my short list for 2016. I see what you did there.
  10. Who was it? Deathray's credibilty.

    Each Year's Most Significant Death.

    You're having a laugh, aren't you. Did you forget Kim Kardashian? From your selection, only Queen Elizabeth II would eclipse Mr Bowie. I don't even know who you mean by "Janet".

    A Joke

    Considering how The Death List brings us all together, it amazes me how switched on you all are, unlike our 'hopeful' collective subject matter. Jokes from the other side of the pond never travel well! Often they can, with a little editing I liked your Yorkshire death announcement joke further up, but I first encountered it as an Irish joke with the more succinct "Paddy's dead. Farm for sale".

    I just went for the coverage angle. Probably none of these will die, but hey, it's the taking part that counts King Salman bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia Muhammad Ali George H.W. Bush (joker) Fidel Castro Kirk Douglas The Duke of Edinburgh John Glenn João Havelange Stephen Hawking Clare Hollingworth Joe Jackson (Michael's father) Grand Duke Jean I of Luxembourg Helmut Kohl George R.R.

    Authors Last A Long Time, But....

    I never fully understood that line. Did it mean "put on your socks" or "put your hands on your socks"? Surely one doesn't need to be male? Assuming you aren't taking the michael..... Young man, morning glory, being told to stop what comes naturally to young men, and put on their socks instead. i.e. stop wanking, start dressing. But I still think you're messing about.... Oh I knew it was about wanking, obviously. Just wasn't sure about the socks bit, especially as socks often play a part - I think I'd better leave it there.

    Death Anniversary Thread

    Yes indeed, the TOTP orchestra ruined many a great song.
  17. Looks to me like she turns and walks away in the same direction as the woman pushing the trolley, and is thus hidden behind the latter. You can see her just starting to turn.

    Rag Traders

    No way! I've often wondered the same, but could never be arsed to look it up. I thought it might be the sort that has buttons on the collar, that was fashionable in the 1970s.

    I have PM'd you a team, Hein.

    General Pervez Musharraf

    Oh! I opened several topics in separate tabs and this one read "General Perv" I thought it must be an offshoot of the Jimmy Savile thread.

    So what did you think it was about?

    Star Wars Deaths

    Me neither but if they'd have been around when I was a child I might have liked them. I liked the Worst Witch books which have a similar theme. I really liked the first few, they were entertaining and imaginative (I love the idea of Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans). But then they started getting too self-consciously "dark" and it all felt a bit forced to me, not to mention derivative. I never bothered to read the last one.
