  1. Really, Biblio, I had no idea, I thought Spitting Image was gripping documentary... If something is annoying, does it matter if its ironic annoying? Get rid. imo.

  3. Just to add the obvious that gigantic/health issues tend to be linked to folk Giant Gonzalez size ie folk suffering from acromegaly, who wind up vast outliers. Just over 6 foot, which is the height of around 22 million Americans alone, isn't that far off average.

  5. 2000 odd Karens born in Scotland last twenty years compared to 8000 in the last twenty years of the 20th Century. Bet you're glad I looked that up. Thanks to uni (and Doctor Who) I tend to associate the name with hot redheads before the meme, tbh. But in general, most "popular" names are decreased these days compared to then.

    Dead Pop Stars

    I was going to say there's a quarter of a century age difference between me and my niece, but then I double counted and realised it was even bigger than that. Willz old enough to be my dad, I'm old enough to be Clorox's dad, in a decade or so on the DL Clorox will have the exact same feeling with some new younger Scottish regular. Circle of getting fucking auld...
  7. I'd love Warren Zevon making it into the HOF, ngl.

    Shove Off, Eh?

    It was one of the old QOs before TMIB cut down on them. I brought all the old ones back when the FFBI ban came in. We were also aware that obits like this would get in when they wouldn't otherwise, but with FFBI gone we wanted to reward your notable but not front page news type picks (basically the Philip Latham specials) who suffered in the past. It's not an aggregator - someone specifically uploads the obits to the UK version. It's about as lenient as the Cmme were going to get when I was there because, despite many requests, the British DDP wasn't going to accept the New York Times as an obituary. But if the NYT obit is picked up by the British Yahoo, well, so be it. This happens considerably fewer times than you'd think though. It's not the fix all panacea folk think but it does rescue about a dozen notables from the LOTL each year, so was worth it. imo.

    Shove Off, Eh?

    Please please let her get a QO as her story would make a great @Death Impends obit.

    22. Jean-Marie Le Pen

    Hopefully. Is he dead yet? (Notes for Lafaucheuse, it's deliberate irony, as popularised by many great French writers...)
