    Hollywood Possibilities

    You're supposed to squeeze them out, Gwyneth love. Perhaps that's where it went wrong.

    You were right first time. He has definitely died! And you posted it in the correct thread too. I would respectfully disagree.

    The Fringes Of Fame/family Of The Famous

    She was editor of "Real Homes" magazine, so she had some very, very vague "fame" before her cancer. Doubt that many people have even heard of the magazine, let alone its staff. Oh well, that's deadpooling.

    The Fringes Of Fame/family Of The Famous

    That's about right. She blogged and wrote a book, got adopted by the media. This article in the Guardian appeared after she had made 'a full recovery'.(2010) Yes. I rather dislike this kind of thing, having seen other cancer sufferers derive misplaced hope from these self-absorbed attention seekers people, only to deteriorate and die themselves.

    The Fringes Of Fame/family Of The Famous

    Who is this Lisa Lynch? I take it that she's one of these people who gets ill and then writes about it, in other words only "famous for being ill". That about right?

    Where Will The Next School Massacre Be?

    strange, the story I've heard is "Four people have been shot dead in two shootings in two villages in upstate New York, US police say" Not exactly a mass shooting now is it? Four dead, two wounded, so there's (presumably) six people shot. The two villages are adjacent to each other either side of a river, according to the BBC. I still wouldn't call that a mass shooting. Me neither I'd agree, it's 'multiple' rather than 'mass'. Unless they were in church, or going to church, or summat like that

    The Hartlepool Deadlypool

    about time too Go me! I sort of feel a bit sad tbh, because Princess Lilian is one of the Greatest Love Stories , but it must be a happy release for the poor old dear and I hope she is reunited with her prince now.

    The Dead Of 2013

    Duchess of Halland, I think. Funny, I was only thinking about her today .... she finally gets me off the mark in the Hartlepool Deadlypool.

    Death By Jazz

    I have to admit I thought he had died a few years ago. Me too. There's a thread for that somewhere, isn't there?

    Hmmm, well, disappointment was inevitable.

    Gough Whitlam (That actually sounds like an unpleasant disorder, now I come to think of it)

    Hooroo, Mate.

    Know how you feel. My 2011 joker was Sara Douglass. Didn't get a mention.

    The Hartlepool Deadlypool

    I can't even remember who I put in my team, but clearly they're all still alive and kicking. I had that Van Cliburn in my Rotten Dead team though, so that's something.

    It goes without saying that Granny was much more important than any of those people.

    British Science Fiction Series

    Jesus!!! If my calculations are correct, you must be one of the very few left on Planet Earth that will remember when Petra was a just a Pup!!!!! Respect to you Toastie!!! I remember the very first episode of Doctor Who!!! My Granny died on the same day, and I remember that too, but it was many years before I realised that they had happened on the same day ....

    British Science Fiction Series

    I can remember a Blue Peter episode where they made a "Dalek" out of egg boxes. It was utterly shite and nothing at all like a Dalek. I also remember that they got complaints about it on "Junior Points Of View", enough for one of the presenters (Christopher Trace, if memory serves) to be quite defensive about it. "We spoke to the man who invented them, and he said that's how he made them." Even at my very youthful age, I knew that was bullshit.

    Topping himself is the honest way to go, however I fear money will decide matters.

    No bail for Oscar, which was disappointing as he already has the cricket bat and stumps.
  22. In tune with the prevailing attitude, I've given up giving a fuck.

    Mollie Sugden et al

    Yes, he was an astonishingly good actor away from his sitcom work. A pity that he will be remembered for his mediocre roles.

    Well, at least a talking head won't have feet of clay ....
