    David Bennett

    A heart is just a mechanism to pump out blood etc. Don't see why it wouldn't work. Now if he had a brain transplant and got a pig's brain, that would be something.

    Horse Racing

    Sad news for the Queen: Ivor Herbert, the racing journalist, trainer, bon vivant and friend of the royals has died aged 96. Though his own riding career was curtailed after twice breaking his neck, the Old Etonian ex-Coldstream Guards officer shone as an amateur trainer and trained the winner of the 1957 Cheltenham Gold Cup. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-10388597/EDEN-CONFIDENTIAL-exotic-dancer-tore-strip-critic-Giles-Coren.html

    Comedians & Comedy Writers

    Well Johnny Carson was a comedian, so I'm sure his brother was pretty funny too, not to mention as director of the Tonight Show and other shows he must have done some kind of comedy writing, or have had input into the jokes, the director doesn't just press a record button. So I am sure that comedy writing was one of the strings on his bow, even if other strings were more substantial. What a tribute to such a great talent to be included on multiple threads.

    Sinéad O'Connor aka Shuhada' Davitt

    Actually Muslims don't get affected by death so much as they just regarded it as being decided by God, i.e. fate. So if she really converted then she might be able to brush it off.

    33. Sidney Poitier

    Oh well in that case he is definitely justified in comparing himself to Sydney Poitier.

    Very Blue Peter

    Funny that the only mention of Max Stahl is on the Blue Peter thread. He is a national hero in Timor-Leste for his role in exposing the huge Indonesian massacre of 1991.
