Oh, did she die?  Also... what do her real powers entail in these nations?

Funny, because I was making that same argument about the UK.  Britain's royals have zero meaning outside the UK.

Stop acting like a thick shit.

We are comparing the significance of two deaths globally, America is not globally, the UK is not globally.

By a country mile, if you were to ask all members on here which, out of the two, they would consider to be the most significant, only you and a hand full of other fucking idiots would pick out BMX over Phil.

Stop wasting time arguing over the fucking obvious.

We weren't doing that, at all, and I made that clear in a previous post.

You said that British royals have zero meaning outside the UK, so all I did was disprove your point, just as swiftly as you proved my earlier point that the majority of the US has its head even further up its own arse than the UK.

 

I’m not a royalist at all but these are just fucking facts.

Seems what's happening here, actually, is that we've different thoughts on the meaning of "significant"... in which case @En Passant is absolutely correct that this " is a stupid overly repetitive load of shite that will still be being argued here when hell freezes over."

 

 

This argument has been going on since the beginning of the thread (or at least page 2). As @Lard Bazaar put it 

Quote

one man's 'significant death' is another's 'who the f**k is he?'

 

 Hence, you get arguments about whether a US rapper who has a significance to demographic 'A', is more significant than a 99 year consort who has a significance to demograpghic 'B'. Pointless, unless we can rech a definition of 'significant' on which we're all agreed. 

 

Anyway, at least this has stopped all the Kobe Bryant arguments.

Tried to use the word "meaning" because I, wrongly, thought it would have a more practical application than "significance".  Trying to give either of these words a practical application has been my mistake.

The whole thing is so open to interpretation that there are no right answers to who’s more significant than who, so the entirety of this thread is pointless and should get in the bin please admins thank you.

Define "significant".

significant in term of cultural, political, or religious impact. A death which is considered as part of history, one who is not only a shock but also a significant event. 

I would say, Hitler may be the best contender for the most significant death of the XXth but there's great runner-ups such as Elvis, De Gaulle, Churchill…

Actually, this might help explain where I was coming from, in regards to the word "significant", because I would argue that Hitler's actual death wasn't all that significant because of when it occurred.  It came at the tail end of the war, after he had been totally defeated, and had no more potential to harm anyone but those in the bunker with him.  The most significant death, of the 20th century, was undoubtedly Archduke Franz Ferdinand's.  His assassination completely reshaped the western world and Hitler isn't even a person of historical note without it.
