  1. Inspired by lardys current trevails, why not? As an aficionado of importing phones direct from China , I am currently awaiting number 5 to arrive. Had two Jiayus which were huge bang for buck, followed by two Umis in the last 15 months (I broke the screen on first one after a couple of weeks, and now ditto with the latter one, tho still usable). Current bad boy in the post is the lesser specced Vernee X , 4 gig RAM/ 64 gig ROM for £121 incl free postage ( the higher specced variant of 6/128 gigs isn't justifiable imo for an extra £60 quid ). https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32848756877.html?trace=storeDetail2msiteDetail&spm=2114.12010615.0.0.69ea7c7714rOAn https://www.gizchina.com/2018/01/19/vernee-x-review-close-awesome/ 18/9 aspect so a 6" phone same dimension as current 5.5" one, over a 6,000 mah battery with quick charging (a boon, believe me, it is), dual sim, unlocked, pretty much stock android 7 with 8 due via an over the air upgrade. Only downside is no 3.5mm headphone jack, but comes with USB C to 3.5mm adaptor, not a biggie as I rarely use headphones. Will post if its a pile of shite

    Saint V Greavsie

    Think they'll both go this year, and since Greavsie has been awfy quiet since crimbo, he's my choice.

    Michael J Fox

    Thought he'd have a long standing thread but damned if I can find one. http://radaronline.com/celebrity-news/michael-j-fox-battles-parkinson-disease-health-declines/ Meant to be on the wane in a sad last days way, but deserving of his own I reckon.

    Rodrigo Duterte

    Right, mentioned him when he was due to get elected in the Philippines last year I think. He romped in in the back of an anti drugs crackdown, with literally 'you kill a dealer and you won't get arrested, you'll get a medal'. Update on his success. http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2016/12/07/world/asia/rodrigo-duterte-philippines-drugs-killings.html?smid=tw-nytimes&smtyp=cur&_r=1 I really think he has more chance of being capped in 2016 than Griffith or a random Isis heid bummer. I really doubt he'll be around for reelection. Bring him home...

    Sydney Devine

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-43501592 Going back on the road after son died of sepsis at 58. Syd looks like shit, and had I'll health for decade plus He's fucked.
  6. Was gonna throw this in the darts thread as Fordham checking opportunity, or fitba thread as its at Ibrox or stupid/funny thread. But this shites gonna get worse in the next month so we might as well have a thread for it. Picture bottom right makes me think of And has a defo Tom of Finlind vibe. //////////// This crap is gonna build day on day until 11/11. A recent bonkers thing was Christ I hate them fuckers, bit they are entertaining down to their sheer mentalness.

    Game of Thrones

    Re reading the Babylon 5 thread and thought 'box sets' not good enough for this show. Peter Vaughan is probably the highest profile so far in my mind to pass, but with a rich and varied cast it will be many a year afore they're all deid. Interesting to remember the Dragon wifie had 2 brain aneurysms around 24 https://www.newyorker.com/culture/personal-history/emilia-clarke-a-battle-for-my-life-brain-aneurysm-surgery-game-of-thrones

    Tennis, you got Rapha Needlar, push bikes Lance, running faster than a walk??? Step slowly forward Pishy Paula, the lauded hoor. These cunts that cheat and needle their way for £££/$$$/ gotta be worth a thread of consideration. Cycling alone seems to throw up plenty of young demises. Ftr , pishy Paula..... Hope the cow bleeds out.
  9. No names, no pack drill etc, but just wondering if any of us are 'candidates'. Yeah or Nae only. Myself? Eh, naw, not unless charged with previous , no famous relatives, not made an impact in the World etc etc, I am not a ''pick''. (silent 'r')...........

    Mad Mike Hoare

    Will be 99 in March, and defo a deathlisty name imo. Mad Irish bastard has had some life (assuming alive). One of his boys died six months ago https://www.scotsman.com/news/obituaries/obituary-peter-duffy-mercenary-soldier-hijacker-ex-convict-chef-photographer-and-raconteur-1-4542468 And I came across this interview from when The Wild Geese was released (he advised on the film) https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/lifestyle/1978/11/13/mad-mike-the-mercenary/473b33ac-3eb3-493d-816c-6560fa239914/?utm_term=.2392ecdcaeb0 Nowt to say in ill health, but age alone could see him in the main List next year. Outlived all his contemporaries by decades, worth a thread.

    We've got about everything else covered, so why not? http://www.dancarlin.com/hardcore-history-series/ A lot free just now and hour after hour on the Khans etc. Don't agree with a lot of the analogies, but we'll worth a download to fill some time. 'Serial' gets a good mention, and I have still to start it but as it is just going into season 2 now is the time I think. Unlike the historical stuff of Carlin, this is murder/mystery shit , but meant to be very very clever. https://serialpodcast.org/season-one/1/the-alibi

    Brian Cox

    72 now, and as morbidly obese as he has ever been. Troy was eons ago, but watching Succession, he might be mobile and lucid, but 5 more years may be a stretch. Deathlisty, but yeah, problem is he will peg it in a day so no long term prognosis for Lists. *will take the flak for starting thread....
  13. Since I don't know where else to put the updates on Julie Strain ( I thought there was a B movie thread but I'm wrong), and with the recent demise of the very first Playgirl centrefold Mike Hiss, its time for a thread. They ain't pornos, beauty Queen's, bimbos (well......) GC posted Since that article, her fb had a Christmas update , home, comfortable and knows fuck all. Won't see summer.

    Saw a quote from the latest Sadowitz gig. Dianne Abbott looks like she fell from the top of Grenfell Tower and ate every immigrant on the way down.

    Ask A Deathlister

    Lololololol well as Bou threw it on the fire when I telt her it was poisonous, you could say 'chiggers went pop'
  20. If you want his previous, look at Spades post in Peter Kay thread earlier.

    Ask A Deathlister

    Right. Sitting in front of the fire searching for ill folk as you do near the end of the month and this wee cunto comes across the floor going like fuck. Bou has spent two minutes googling "strawberry shaped moving insect with no legs" I thought it wid be quicker asking whit it is on here. * this after a long diatribe about cobwebs/spiderwebs being not the same
