    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...

    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
  5. 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

    Whoopi Goldberg

    62, fat as fuck and pneumonia in 2 of her 3 lungs. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna981036?__twitter_impression=true
  7. 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.
  8. Oh it wasn't about his politics, it was about the delivery.

    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

    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

    Hooroo, Mate.

    Big bruiser Gerry Sidebottom deid from cancer aged 64. https://au.networkofnews.com/australia-news/garry-sidebottoms-magnificent-career-remembered-5/ Lovely tale of him missing the team bus for a Prelim Final and being replaced at the last minute by a bloke who in a Gazzaesque way had just had half a chicken, chips, a large milkshake and had just smoked a 10 deck of Windsor Blue.

    Tbh I think he had chucked it afore his appointment due to his dad's health. His father was a one cap goalie for Portugal and I vaguely remember tipping him up on here a wee while afore his death as José was flying to Brazil to see him. I think his dad had brain surgery which caused Jr to quit Chelsea, and was nearing the end when he took the Man U gig. Timing is everything.

    As an aside re José, his home League record from early 2002 I think, was 150 games unbeaten. Porto, Chelsea, Inter then Madrid. 9. Fucking. Years.
  25. charon


    Longevity? Without thinking too much, Guy Roux. And José winning the CL with Porto after flukily winning the Europa League the previous year is waaaay beyond whit Sur Alex did at the sheep. ETA after a quick check, Roux is 80 now
