It's in the Celebrity Chefs thread, along with about another 5 posts saying that the inventor of the doner kebab is dead.

(Okay, debatable but I'll accept)

 

In any case, a PM would have been appreciated.

"Bibliogryphon, please will you post another irrelevant list that no-one is interested in?"

 

Go on then you twisted my arm.

 

The Royal Society of Chemistry was formed in 1980 from the merger of two previous societies. The post of President is held for two years and therefore there are quite a few people who might make good picks and all should get at least a broadsheet obituary but if not I am a member of the society and they will get one in Chemistry World. Harry Kroto is probably the only one who would be mentioned on the news though.

 

There are 11 surviving past presidents and the current president (who is the first woman to hold the post)

 

Sir John Cadogan (1930-

Sir Jack Lewis (1928-

Sir Rex Richards (1922-

Edward Abel (1931-

Anthony Ledwith (1933-

Steven Ley (1945-

Sir Harry Kroto (1939-

Simon Campbell (1941-

James Feast (1938-

David Garner (1941-

David Phillips (1939-

Lesley Yellowtrees (1953-

His ashes are to be blasted into... the next village, unable to be located by radar.

Not entirely unexpected but a sad day all the same. Brilliant communicator. R.I.P.

Well I reckon his ashes should be put on a space ship and scattered on Mars. He would probably be the first person to have that tribute,and I know he'd want that

Of course he would; all planetary scientists want to pollute pristine planets.

Didn't realise that the MDMA (and many other psychoactive drugs) 'inventor' Alexander Shulgin was still around, an estimated "4,000 psychedelic experiences" down the line, who "at 85 suffers severe short-term memory loss". No shit.

 

There was an interview with him on one of those fuck-awful BBC3 "LET'S TALK ABOUT DRUGS" documentaries this evening. He looks like he's tweaking permanently.

He's taken another trip.
