Facebook would appear to be dead...

You're getting the white screen, too?

 

Yes. A few minor websites are reporting that the site is currently down. How am I supposed to tend to my farm? ;)

I don't really think there's much wrong with posting a death in the appropriate thread and in the The Dead thread. Having all the deaths together in one thread makes research much easier, particularly when the order of death is significant as in the HDP.

 

It's the dickheads who start a new thread for every death who need a good kicking, that's all.

 

Hear, hear. Absolutely agree.

Interesting fact (as mentioned in the article): His sister is Christina Pickles, who played Ross and Monica's mother in "Friends" - just thought you might like to know if you didn't already. Their uncle was actor Wilfred Pickles.

and his daughter is actress Carolyn Pickles from The Bill and Emmerdale. He is not, as far as I know, related to Tommy and Dil from Rugrats.

Elizabeth Beresford, Creator of the Wombles, has died aged 84.

She has an obit on the BBC News website: Link.

 

She is also a unique pick on the DDP for Short Distance Clara. Don't know if she is a party pooper yet...

The former president of Venezuela, Carlos Andres Perez, has died aged 88 years.

 

Further to my earlier post, Beresford died at 10.30pm on the 24th December 2010 - thus she is not a party pooper.

A very nice summary made by Cracked.com of the deaths of 2010.

 

There might be some deaths we could have overlooked (but I doubt it...)
