    Pope Francis

    Hmmm...perhaps they did it to take the heat off the other "BIG PROBLEM" afflicting the church at the moment. A guy who is connected with a potential war crime in a distant, backward land is better PR than a guy connected with child sexual abuse from within the church itself. Personally I'd like to see a hot blooded Irish pope.

    Discuss The 2013 Deathlist

    Erich Piebke. Chapman Pincher. Anna Wing. Joao Havelange. Henry Cecil. Denis Healey. Reg Presley. Peter O'Sullevan. Nicholas Parsons. Peter Sallis. ...are people I'd never heard of until I saw them on deathlist, but after a quick Google or Wiki it makes more sense why they are chosen.

    Same here, although I'm happy at least that I've scored a hit a month so far Indeed, only my second hit so far this year though.

    Hugo Chavez

    After a google search - heres Fox News Latino's take on the whole saga. http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/opinion/2013/02/28/cuban-medicine-killed-hugo-chavez/ So basically they say Chavez is a victim of Cuban health care system. Totally ingoring the fact that loads of people are diagnosed, treated and/or die from cancer everyday all over the world... it doesn't matter which system they are being treated by.. some are lucky, some arn't. My favourite bit is the end paragraph So well done Fox News on providing another laugh I salute you P.S. to the Americans of the forum, do any of you buy into any of this??

    I know what you mean...it's been ages since there has been a decent train robbery.... chuffing hell not paid a season ticket for Southwest, Southern or any of the other track bandits then^^ or does that qualify as indecent train robbery. At lest Ronnie had the decency to wear a mask... I drive - which, with current petrol prices, presents a whole different kind of robbery.

    A Joke

    Saw the girl I like naked for the first time the other night. Such a beautiful sight, she came out of the shower drapped in a wet towel, water glistening on her exposed skin in the dim light of her bedroom. ...and I remember thinking to myself "God I hope this skylight holds..."

    Read Any Good Books Lately?

    A mate lent me Bear Grylls' auto-biography Mud, Sweat and Tears. a pretty good book for an auto-biography - I don't usually read biographies about living people as I feel there is no real ending so to type.

    Hooroo, Mate.

    Good catch. On a totally unrelated subject, I was thinking of a number of Australian travel show/outback exploration types who are quite elderly now. With Steve Irwin, Mike Leyland and Malcolm Douglas all passing away over the last decade, it is probably time for another one of these guys to go: Outback adventurer, television personality, four wheel drive guru and bush artist Jack Absalom was born in 1927. Outback adventurer, television personality, folk musician and former Administrator of the Northern Territory Ted Egan was born in 1932. Naturalist, television personality, and environmental consultant for big oil companies Harry Butler was born in 1930. Now for the Rolf Harris connections: Harry Butler co-wrote Sun Arise with Rolf in 1961, whilst Ted Egan introduced him to Two Little Boys in 1969... Davey do you remember Troy Dann? kind of a crazier Steve Erwin type, never really made it big though and lives in relative obscurity, courtesy of the Russell Coight spoof.

    Docter Docter!

    For what it’s worth... I don't have any lingering ailments (except hay fever every spring and bad eyes, I wear glasses). However I’ve had my fair share of accidents. Scars on bottom lip and chin from motorcycle accident – nerve damage as a result (hurts like a motherfucker when I shave and I occasionally dribble without realising) Scars on left knee from basketball injury and knee reconstruction– results in slight limp when I walk, used a walking stick for a while. Scar on my back from an operation to remove cyst – can’t sit on hard plastic chairs for very long. I maintain a healthy weight around 72KG’s for a height of 5’9. I party hard, from time to time - lots of booze and the occasional reefer. And of course I could always drown or be taken by a shark when I’m out on my board. Both parents are alive, mum’s pretty healthy as are both my nans (woman in my family fair far better than the men), although they are in their late 80’s and both have early onset dementia. Dad’s in remission from leukaemia which he had at age 42, he has diabetes and arthritis in his hands, back and hips. Grandfathers died in their mid 60’s, one from cancer and another from an old piece of shrapnel from the war turned septic.

    George Bush Senior

    Don't count 41 out just yet. While he has been moved out of ICU, he is still an 88 year old wheelchair patient, who has been in the hospital over a month. Most likely, he will remain in the hospital, well into the New Year. This could well be another case similiar to Gerald Ford, in 2006. Ford was in and out of the hospital multiple times (with issues similiar to Bush), before dying quietly at home. Even if Bush returns home, I have a feeling it will be something like hospice care. He will definitely be on my 2013 Deathlist and this site should still consider making him one of the 50. I don't know about the top 10, but maybe somewhere between #20 and 30. Put him in at number 41.

    George Bush Senior

    I believe conservatives tend to die quicker because a lot of them hate this world and can't wait to enter the next...I think the deathlist is quite happy to aid them in this venture. P.S. there is a little heatwave in Victoria at the moment and I completing this post having just come in from the wading pool for a fresh beer - I think I'll be doing this for the rest of the night. "PHEW" its hot down here.

    Hooroo, Mate.

    Except no one knows who he the hell he is. Yothu Yindi must have some international recognition, surely, as the first Aboriginal band to have mainstream hits? I do love that in your world Geoffrey Hughes is some obscure never-before-head of minor z-lister and yet "Mandawuy Yunupingu" is fucking Elvis or Micheal Jackson. Well we have to have our priorities in order mate. To be fair though, I had heard of Geoffrey Hughes before he was on the Deathlist. Keeping up appearences does air in Australia from time to time (like when the Fawlty Towers reruns are exhausted). Onslow is an unforgettable character. Mandawuy Yunupingu and Yothu Yindi are significant to Australia as the band first burst onto the music scene with the song "Treaty" which proved to be the first real time the tensions between indigenous communities and the Australian government were put into words and the message spread across the country. Kind of like if a band from Cornwall produced a song relating to its persecutions by the UK government.

    Hooroo, Mate.

    Bryce Courtenay has updated his Facebook page to announce that he only has a few months left to live. A few months amounting to a bit less than three: Bryce cold as ice... Yeah we lost a good one there. His Youtube farewell was really touching and sincere. (I have to admit I was hoping he would limp across into the new year, but beggars can't be choosers).
