    The Dead Of 2009

    Reasons for lack of deaths: 1. Hell is full 2. With climate change, the fires of hell have been lowered 3. Barack Obama is able to keep people alive longer[ 4. Global Financial crisis means people cannot afford to die any more 5. Lack of deaths so far is purely dramatic effect, building tension for the great swine flu pandemic 6. All of the above Of the possibilities you mention, I think three and four are actually likely. Seriously ever since Barack became President of the United States, the whole country has just been euphoria. Two of the biggest car companies have gone bankrupt and it doesn't seem to bother people one bit. I personally know tons of people who got laid off, but whereas during the Bush era, they would blame George W. Bush, here, they take it all in stride. They have really brought into obama's message of HOPE. I know people who lost their jobs and even their homes, and they continue to smile and take it all in stride. It's like ever since Barack Obama became president, everything in this country is just positive. No matter what s*** we are going through, people remain vastly optimistic b/c Obama's message of HOPE has kept people positive in their darkest hour. Perhaps b/c of Barack Obama, e.g. The Obama Effect, no celebrities have been dying as much. Also, regarding the global financial crisis, normally something like this would cause celebrities to commit suicide en masse. But so far, the only people who have committed suicide are the noveau riche who lost everything during the crisis. interestingly, we've had no drug related celebrity deaths since Heath Ledger (over a year ago)! I think in a few years, life expectancy (at least in countries like US and UK) should be close to 85, possibly even up to 90. This probably would not be the life expectancy for most ordinary chaps like you and me, but for celebrities with their fame, money, and access to state of the art advanced medical care that ordinary the very elite can afford, age 85 to 90 is probably going to be the norm. The life expectancy for women in Chelsea and Kensington is already 85... and 85 is the life expectancy in Japan for women... however the life expectancy won't reach 85 in the UK and the US on the whole for quite a while yet because of regional differences e.g. here in Scotland the male life expectancy in glasgow is 70! That's lower than in Gaza! We have a while to go yet before we reach 85/90 life expectancies... I'd give it 20 years at least... Like I said, as a whole, the life expectancy for ordinary chaps like you and me in the US and UK probably won't reach 85 for years, maybe decades... For celebrities though, I expect 85 years to not only be the life expectancy, but the norm. There are lots of prominent celebrities in their 80s and 90s who are still quite active in Hollywood and politics. Robert Byrd is in his early 90s and is still an active US senator. Many prominent actors such as Eli Wallach, Ernest Borgnine, Mickey Rooney, Carol Channing, Christopher Lee, etc., are in their late 80s to mid 90s and are still active in the industry. Even Ed McMahon was still active and working on making his comeback at the age of 85(!!) until he was recently hospitalized -- and to much knowledge, he is still hospitalized. It depends on what kind of celebrity... Hollywood celebs YES world leaders YES but asides from that it doesn't seem to keep celebs in other fields going particularly long... Robert Byrd is a one off and he hasn't exactly been in the best of health anyway....

    Political Frailty

    No, doesn't count. Sorry. It's been a fairly dry spell the last several weeks. The last major celebrity to die is Chuck Daly (legendary NBA coach). But even his fame is somewhat questionable. I doubt he's known in the UK. In the last several months, the following celebrities teased us with the media claiming they had "days" to live and that their deaths were imminent... Patrick Swayze Farrah Fawcett Ed McMahon Stephen Hawking Gene Autry Jerry Lewis Dave Gahan (Depeche Mode) Yet all of them are still alive and well (maybe not well, but still holding on). They didn't say Dave Gahan and Stephen Hawking had days to live?

    Gaafar Nimeiri, the Sudanese President between 1969 and 1985 has died aged 79! At last somebody notable, but he's no Patrick Swayze!!

    The Dead Of 2009

    No it's not just you, you're absolutely right and as we're just over a day away from month 6, Deathlist is on the road to having one of its worst years yet... some pretty stupid picks this year and why Jade Goody wasn't selected despite several people suggesting her, beats me! Dai was really a nobody - an unemployed bum with a difference - he had money. Enough to sit around on his botty and attend garden parties every so often. Wendy Richard was not internationally famous but she was highly respected and was quite a good actor... but fame wise they're not very notable. As for notable deaths, I think the most significant ones this year would be amongst actors such as Pat Hingle, Dom DeLuise and Ricardo Montalban, but they're no Patrick Swayzes if you get what I'm saying....

    Let's hope his life isn't caught short. I love this thread, in fact, I just can't get enough of it. He didn't want to start any blasphemous tumours. Let's hope he gets better, and that it's not just a question of time. Other wise he'll have to we'll have to enjoy the silence while he meets his own personal jesus

    World War I Veteran(s)

    Yep exactly two weeks today, what's even more amazing is out of all the other supercentenarians verified by GRG, he probably looks the most frail but he's still managing to hold on, whereas some of the more "healthy looking" individuals are going all the time.... He will make 113, and no doubt they'll be a news report on the BBC... well deserved Henry.... he does face stiff competition from Tomoji Tanabe (the world's oldest man) though - he shows no signs of slowing down and stated recently that he wanted to go on for another 10 years!!

    The American's probably would be able to afford a socialist healthcare system without raising taxes - all they'd have to do is half their bloody spending on defence!

    According to Wikipedia, E. Beatrice Riley, Australia's oldest person has died but this information has suddenly appeared without any verification...... hmmm

    The Dead Of 2009

    Found a suitable obituary for Tom Buckley. No obit yet for Levy Cardoso though... I really doubt there will be one.

    World War I Veteran(s)

    Waldemar Levy Cardoso has died aged 108. He was the last surivivng field marshal from the Brazilian Army serving in WWII and he was also one of two surviving WWI-ERA veterans still alive. This now makes Josef Kowalski of Poland the last surviving WWI-era veteran and brings the world total for veterans (including Douglas Terrey's claim of being a veteran) down to 8.

    Wow the deaths sure are slowing down... I suppose this is the consequence of having a busy April...

    The Dead Of 2009

    If you're a Jesus Freak or a Bible Basher (although I don't know why any Christians would join this site) DO NOT READ BELOW! Here's the poem James Kirkup was charged under the old blasphemy laws for (after Mary Whitehouse brought the charges against him).... The Love That Dares To Speak Its Name By James Kirkup As they took him from the cross I, the centurion, took him in my arms- the tough lean body of a man no longer young, beardless, breathless, but well hung. He was still warm. While they prepared the tomb I kept guard over him. His mother and the Magdalen had gone to fetch clean linen to shroud his nakedness. I was alone with him. For the last time I kissed his mouth. My tongue found his, bitter with death. I licked his wound- the blood was harsh For the last time I laid my lips around the tip of that great cock, the instrument of our salvation, our eternal joy. The shaft, still throbbed, anointed with death's final ejaculation I knew he'd had it off with other men- with Herod's guards, with Pontius Pilate, With John the Baptist, with Paul of Tarsus with foxy Judas, a great kisser, with the rest of the Twelve, together and apart. He loved all men, body, soul and spirit. - even me. So now I took off my uniform, and, naked, lay together with him in his desolation, caressing every shadow of his cooling flesh, hugging him and trying to warm him back to life. Slowly the fire in his thighs went out, while I grew hotter with unearthly love. It was the only way I knew to speak our love's proud name, to tell him of my long devotion, my desire, my dread- something we had never talked about. My spear, wet with blood, his dear, broken body all open wounds, and in each wound his side, his back, his mouth - I came and came and came as if each coming was my last. And then the miracle possessed us. I felt him enter into me, and fiercely spend his spirit's finbal seed within my hole, my soul, pulse upon pulse, unto the ends of the earth- he crucified me with him into kingdom come. -This is the passionate and blissful crucifixion same-sex lovers suffer, patiently and gladly. They inflict these loving injuries of joy and grace one upon the other, till they dies of lust and pain within the horny paradise of one another's limbs, with one voice cry to heaven in a last divine release. Then lie long together, peacefully entwined, with hope of resurrection, as we did, on that green hill far away. But before we rose again, they came and took him from me. They knew not what we had done, but felt no shame or anger. Rather they were glad for us, and blessed us, as would he, who loved all men. And after three long, lonely days, like years, in which I roamed the gardens of my grief seeking for him, my one friend who had gone from me, he rose from sleep, at dawn, and showed himself to me before all others. And took me to him with the love that now forever dares to speak its name. :o :o :o :o :o

    Millington has just died according to the BBC.....
  21. What, like our crazy one-eyed Scotsman? Well they're very respected in the US... probably due to amount of travelling they do across the country and the countless events they attend. Let's be honest how many of us are going to be attending festivals and conventions when we're in our late 80s/early 90s?? I think the fact that they're dwarfs also makes interesting reading for an obituary... dwarfs don't usually live very long due the they're organs being closely compacted and thus giving them a crap immune system....
