    UK Heatwave

    Are there any deathlist stalwarts out there who can tell us if, historically, there is a pickup in the strike-rate during the northern hemisphere summer. Or are our candidates lingering in airconditioned comfort.
  2. It seems to me that with the 2005 list trailing so badly, it might be a good idea to contact some of the nominees, sounding them out as to whether they might not want to help themselves along. With a little encouragement, they could become part of a record-breaking year, which, let's face it, is the last great contribution many of them will be able to make.

    Al Lewis

    BBC now having it both ways. He is listed as being born in 1910 and 1923 in separate articles.

    Al Lewis

    Al Lewis is, was, undoubtedly famous enough, but I am disappointed not to see an obituary on the BBC website. They have one of a piano playing son of a long dead italian dictator. But no Grandpa. Shame on them.

    George Best

    Thankfully, a priest got there in time to give him last orders.

    A Shortlist 2006

    Karzai. It would be a shame to take him off the list. I like the idea of having someone on there younger than me. Maradona is looking healthy but coke usually gets you by 50 even when you long stopped chopping. Has that George Best dry-reached the end of his life-span in 2006? Quite possibly. Lets have sone young'ens in there. Make it sport.

    Places With Silly Names

    The classic is the Austrian mountain village called f*****g, which has steadfastly refused to chage the town's name despite the 10s of thousands of euros it costs a year to replace the roadsigns, lifted by easily amused english (or anglo-saxon) tourists. Okay. we have a moderator problem here. There really is a place called effyouseekayeyeenngee.

    This Doesn't Have Any Relevance But...

    1) that North dakota licence site is obviously some North Korean forgery, judging from the English. and 2) Tommy Lee has a point.

    technically, maryportfuncity, Dublin was still part of the UK in 1919.

    How About Bringing Back Some Oldies?

    frankly, if we have to ask who she is, she hardly qualifies. And in the interests of being sporting, I think the list should include at least 10 under-80s and 5 under-70s. Ozzie is still a quality candidate. Hardly an intellectual pursuit to identify every zimmer-wielding nonagenarian with a CV.

    Deathlist 2005! Success Poll

    I notice that in the record year of 2003, there wasn't a single death after September 28. Indeed, a troll through the pages reveals surprisingly post september deaths. Have we peaked?

    U.S. Death Pools?

    There's a big dead pool in New Orleans

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2006

    I'd add stephen Hawking to my selection of Bill Clinton, George Best and Jacques Chirac.

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2006

    Bill Clinton and his dodgy ticker George Best and what's left of his liver Jacques Chirac and the runny nose that kept him in a secure military hospital for 7 days.

    Fasting to death

    No, No! We must respect what this woman is doing and injunct all deathlist nominees to follow her example. Watch the records tumble.

    Diego Maradona

    The man has cocaine in his soul. No matter what his outside appearance is, his heart will be full of holes. I vote he stays on.

    Where is management? Why isn't deathlist being updated? What more proof do they want!

    Oscar Niemeyer

    may be in good health but obviously senile... Architect Niemeyer Ratifies Solidarity with Cuba Rio de Janeiro, Jul 4 (Prensa Latina) Famous Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer ratified on Monday his solidarity with the Cuban Revolution and its leader Fidel Castro. During a meeting with Cuban ambassador Pedro Núñez Mosquera, Niemeyer said that Cuba is an example for Latin America and the world, and Fidel Castro is a leading world statesman. He also spoke highly of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and the revolutionary process he heads. During the meeting, the Cuban diplomat presented 97 year old Niemeyer with a certificate as an Honorary Member of the 120-Year Club, a Cuban initiative to promote a longer, high-quality life. Niemeyer said he hoped to achieve this goal as he was feeling well and worked every day from 9:30 am well into the afternoon.

    Edward Heath

    I thought popewatch was quite informative. Anyone care to posit that that Ted Heath, far from being a disaster, laid the much of the groundwork for moderate Thatcherism (though not what came after 87) while dealing simulataneously with the global oil-shock induced recession and the final, inevitable admission of loss of empire with the admission to the European Community?

    General Pinochet

    It seems he has suffered another stroke (coveniently timed for another court case) and is semi-conscious, whatever that means. Lets hope he suffers a bit more.

    http://www.iol.co.za/index.php?click_id=29...53A141&set_id=1 referring to this. How does one put in a link by the way.

    Looks like one to be held over for 2006. or 7.

    Lady Bird Johnson

    Is she the bloke at the back with the tache?

    Damn, won't anyone die?

    I disagree with the 3 for Levi-Strauss when Galbraith gets 2, likewise for Hoffman and Moore. Otherwise your judgement seems uncontestable.

    Ross Davidson

    seems a young 'un. Do we have an age?
