    Stephen Griffiths

    The Dnepropetrovsk maniacs recorded a murder and it was posted online and is still available to see on certain sites. A recorded murder is called a "snuff" film, right? Or is that only for ones that also have a sexual element?

    Political Frailty

    Check wikipedia's deaths in 2010 page. That's one hell of a lot of notable people to perish in a single incident.

    John Tyndall & Nick Griffin

    The media prints a ton of stories about Nick Griffin/the BNP, many of which are complete bullshit. They'll sell papers because they're a controversial party, but they will never get elected. At most they will get a couple of MPs, but even that seems unlikely.

    The Dead Of 2010

    Because Wikipedia only lists people who are approved by the GRG, and the GRG almost always begins with the assumption that anyone with an age claim from a developing country is lying, so people wanting to verify that have to overcome both that bias and the fact that record keeping is very poor from those regions. Add in a senior claims investigator who takes the side of the race debate that believes that the social construct of race has significant biological backing and Wikipedia's list of Oldest people is the result. Race is a social construct? To a certain extent it is, yes. But there are genetic differences between populations that have lived in the same region for a long time and that is biological. Politically incorrect, but true. And I do not think that one should ever let political correctness get in the way of the truth. That being said, it's ridiculous to suggest that race is, or ever has been, concrete between the border of Mexico and America or between Western Europe or Eastern Europe... even 100 years ago these would have been absurd suggestions to make.

    The Dead Of 2010

    Here's an interesting one: 109-year-old Juan Carlos Caballero Vega, a veteran of the Mexican Revolution who was the driver of Pancho Villa, passed away on March 30. That's almost into supercentenarian territory! Why does Wikipedia list only the oldest people from what are classed as developed nations, I wonder? Easier to verify, probably, but is there any other reason?

    Not Really Famous, But What A Moniker!

    That guy has a singing voice that is a dead ringer for Captain Beefheart (and the lyrics are similarly nonsensical, it seems).

    Amen to that.

    World War I Veteran(s)

    Claude Choules is the only surviving veteran to have seen active service. Surely that qualifies him as the only real veteran of the war. I know that there are official guidelines and whatnot, but if they didn't do anything...should they be counted? I think that Patch was the last veteran in the real sense of the word given that he actually fought in the trenches. Choules, for example, explained his war as boring. Coudn't agree more. It's good that the BBC and Sky are reporting him as the last veteran. Although Choules did put his life at risk, but not to the extent that Patch did. John Babcock will be the last out of the three though. His health is amazing for his age whereas Buckles and Choules look like garden vegetables ready to boil in the soup..... Also it'd be something of an anti-climax if the last 'veteran' living was Florence Green, a waitress.

    As long as it's not Jacqui Smith. Making 'extreme porn' laws and then having her husband's porn on her expenses... extremely ironic. But this is offtopic.

    Most Significant Death Of Each Month

    So January 2010 J.D. Salinger was clearly the most significant death. We'll have to see how the rest of the year pans out.

    Pete Doherty

    It's just that it doesn't happen like it used to back in the sixties and seventies. Not to that extent.

    Well, that was quite a miss for you DeathListers...
