That isn't even that much. Prince Philip, Shane MacGowan, Tony Blair, Robbie Coltrane, Robert De Niro, Sharon Osbourne and Richard O'Sullivan have threads that will reach adulthood this year. How long will we have to wait for them to die?

Simply evidence of pillocks posting threads way before the subject has any realistic prospect of shuffling off this mortal coil. Has it changed? Has it fuck, it's got worse.

Looking at the front page, there's every indication that this thread was started because he was a committee selection for the actual Deathlist; post 2 in the thread gives ample reason why he was, at the time, a good selection, given his health problems and age. While there are threads started prematurely by pillocks, I don't think this is the case here.

I was referring to the list I quoted, and in general to some degree, rather than this specific thread which just happens to be where it was brought up. That said the point is fair.

 

Incidentally, whilst I accept that wandering off topic on a thread is sometimes annoying, was it not clear I was responding to what I quoted and not a specific reference to Mr Dole? Odd to pull me on something I didn't actually do, even if i did it in said location.

Ah, I got the wrong end of the stick. Apologies.

Okay, yes, the hurdles were in February, but the "very well" is now.

Bob Dole outlived his 1976 Vice Presidential rival Walter Mondale.  I think Bob Dole will live to see his 98th birthday but not long past it.

Agreed I think he'll see 98 but not 99

Damn he actually made it to his 98th Birthday. Pretty impressive feat given his health conditions.

 

Found one article on his birthday but its more like a compilation of quotes from recent years, not much new stuff

Here is a recent interview, in which he criticizes the former president. He says there's no question that Trump lost his reelection race, narrowly but fair and square. Dole also describes Biden as "a great, kind, upstanding, decent person."

I just saw that. He had to stop chemo because it was too hard. Now he's on immunotherapy which seems to work less effective. He still has some future plans though and is not on his deathbed yet, but in my opinion, not more than a few months away.
