    A Famous Belgian

    Hmm, methinks that you were running out of steam by number 6, Monsieur Godot. I would have stopped at about the second item on your leetle list.
  2. What they don't tell you is how to get the sodding biscuit tin into orbit. Not a trivial part of the whole space race, methinks.

    Shouldn't this thread be merged with the existing DDP thread over in the extra-curricular forum?

    Deathlist Dreaming

    Oh god, you buggers have got me at it now. I had a dream about meeting various DL members at the upcoming DL-Con. There were lots of you (us?) there, but the only one who I remember with any semblance of clarity was Boudicca, who had dark hair in a bob. And she was shorter than me. She might have been holding a pint (cider?), but I am probably making it up now. That would be fine, except I'm not even going. And Boudicca didn't have her baby with her - will he be old enough to be left with dad by then? Or maybe I'm dreaming about dark-haired ladies, and Boudicca was just a name my sub-conscious extracted. Now I'm really rambling. It's as if I've become TLC all of a sudden.

    Chris Langham

    As indeed was the eight year old girl in one of the very videos viewed by Mr Langham. I read in the BBC report of his conviction (I think) that the father (and perpetrator of the abuse) had now been convicted of it, partly as a result of the police finding the images on Mr Langham's computer.

    How do you measure up? 10/10 for me!

    Quiz Time

    I'll add Liverpool, Northampton Town, Dundee United and York City to that.
  8. Nothing to do with the above post or this thread, but is your new avatar supposed to be a self portrait? Very good if so, it took me a few minutes to find out what the molecule was called. (My wife's PhD subject helped with search terms!)

    Holiday Thread

    BHB, I do hope your "wordly goods" had nothing to do with what hung between your thighs and as for putting said goods into the back of a tranny....... Unfortunately, I think that's exactly what he was getting at.

    Read Any Good Books Lately?

    No, I think Windsor said you were a complete asshole a long time ago. And his thoughts seem to have been echoed by many of the rest of us too, particularly when you had your little hissy fit last week and flounced off the forum, never to return. The cheers and cries of relief echoed round these hallowed walls. So, you're probably the last to admit your complete asshole status. For once though, I think everyone reading that post will agree with something you've said. The first time in 4000+ posts. Keep up the good work, asshole.

    Princess Diana

    A bit of lateral thinking, trying to force results from the marvel that is the DL search engine, revealed this thread. [Topics merged- NAP]

    The Canadian Paul Deadpool

    I'd support your idea if you were to take the names from previous deathlists so that they were people who others have regarded as genuine contenders in the past. In that case a clean sheet might justify a smidgin of self-congratulation at the year end. I have been thinking of doing the opposite of a deathpool, ie a livepool. Each player selects a team of old and/ or desperately unhealthy well known people, and is awarded points at the start of the year on the basis of their age and severity of their illness(es). They lose points each time one of them dies. Winner is the player with the most points. So instead of rooting for them to die, we'll be hoping for them to survive the year (a bit like you do when you haven't picked someone who is top of the obituary writer's list). Canadian Paul's list of I&P's would be a good starting point for a list of candidates, for example. Only trouble is, working out the points scoring is so complicated and subjective, I can't see myself ever bothering to get it done, let alone buy myself a domain, learn HTML coding, attract enough players...
  13. Whoops, can't count, that's 109, well 108. My excitement was peaking early. Very early - something like 960 to go. 100,000 - 99,040.

    Room 101

    Personalised number plates. Specifically (but not restricted to) the owners of BMW M3's, M5's, Audi TT's etc who think they need to tell everyone that they have a fast car by putting M3, M5 or TT at the start of their number plate. We know what your fecking car is - it's got a sodding badge on the back and it's obvious from the way it's being driven. Tossers. To really take the biscuit, I saw a Volvo C70 this morning which had a number plate starting, guess what, C70. What's to shout about there - I mean if I wanted to buy a convertible, a Volvo would be way down the list. Just says "I couldn't afford a BMW, Mercedes or an Audi" to me. Then you get these fuckwits who somehow think that a '4' can be easily read as an 'A', (as in W4NKY) or that it doesn't matter that there is an 'I' between the 'V' and the 'W' on a Passat plate. Wtf is a VIW? A '1' looks like an 'I', but a '7' doesn't. So don't try and trim the horizontal bit of the '7' to make it look like one. If you can't afford 'COL1N', then 'COL11N', or 'COL7N' are not suitable replacements. It just makes you look like an idiot who can't spell his own name.

    Stranger Than Death

    Wouldn't it be even more strange if there were no instances of this anywhere ever? The laws of chance would suggest that this type of happening should be a fairly regular occurrence. My four grandparents all died on different dates, and none of them died on their birthdays, or on the birthday of anyone else in my family. Strange, eh?

    The Dead - 2007

    Yes, you useless cuntbucket. About six posts above your one. I suppose it's a bit beyond you to think of looking on the current page? Twat. PS, if a mod wants to warn me for being rude to this idiot, please feel free. My warn-o-meter has remained at zero since it was introduced, and it would be nice to see what being warned does to it.

    The Boys Of '66

    It's boring isn't it? It'll be the same re the Ashes, they'll batter on and on about the 2005 Series being the greatest ever, failing to point out that if the light hadn't failed on the last day of the final Test the Aussies were poised to obliterate England. I think you're getting confused - England batted until about 5.30, to leave Australia to score about 300 in about an hour. So even if the light had been good enough, it would have been a very unlikely Australian victory. Had Shane Warne not dropped Pietersen earlier in the day, things could have been a little different. Hence 'Warnie dropped the Ashes". However, the second game could (should?) have been won by Australia, and they came close to winning the fourth as well. After this winter, the least said about the Ashes the better I think.

    CP, I'm confused by this. Obviously Macca will outlive them all & be the sole remaining Beatle, as he's sold his soul to Beelzebub, but Ringo's still alive, isn't he? And would Pete Best, the original drummer be counted? Or have I completely misunderstood your post? Um, I think you have misunderstood. If you selected 'any one Beatle', then you'd get a hit if one of them died. One did die (several years later), so that can be counted as a success under the cumulative list thingy that OoO was trying to achieve. I think that's what CP was on about, but this may be muddying the water even further...
