I'm rehearsing my casket dance and laying out my SPANX right now, you dumb gay bitches.
Why on earth would we want Bill Clinton to die? We need him to campaign for John Kerry's replacement in MA and for Hillary in 2016.

No one wants him to die, but he has a bad heart and the malicious fates often take a Clinton while the world waits for death to take a Bush.

Which Clintons have been taken? Bill & Hillary are still here, as is Chelsea.
No -- sometimes we expect one to go, but fate takes another first.
Kate Middleton's unborn child
"Damn Hanger, never goes where I want it to"
From I'm reading now, the 1st President Bush is on his way out. Recently re-upgraded to critical condition and you know what that means. He won't be invading any countries in 2013
Charles Durning is NOT famous.
Are you serious, r20? Of course he was. He wasn't a big star, but neither was Klugman. They were both well-respected and about as famous as character actors get.
I could have sworn Jack Klugman died a long time ago due to the recurrence of lung cancer. Guess he lived.
I wonder why he and Brett Somers stayed married after separating so many years ago.
I've noticed that many confused Jack Klugman with Walter Matthau and thought Jack was already dead because Walter is.)
I've also noticed people confuse Brian Dennehy with Charles Durning, even though Dennehy is 20 years younger...

He had throat cancer
Gerry Anderson, creator of Captain Scarlet, Thunderbirds and Space:1999 passed away this week.
My sister! And not a minute too soon.
My daughter has now outlived me!
Fontella Bass, R&B singer, best known for "Rescue Me"
Those people are famous? I've never heard of either of them.
More like "only known for," r29.
Maybe Zsa Zsa will finally bite the dust.
R30 must be 12
Who knows who Dunning is? Everyone knows Jack Klugman.
George H.W. Bush!! I hope, I hope, I hope...
[quote] Who knows who Dunning is?
Um, it's Durning. And lots of people are familiar with both Charles Durning and his work.
Dick Cheney - please!
Will Margaret Thatcher EVER die?
R38, Margaret Thatcher is only about 86. She's a couple of years younger than George H. W. Bush.
It seems like we've been waiting forever for Cheney to go. Hard to believe he is only in his early 70's.
Clarence Thomas, Clarence Thomas, Clarence Fucking Thomas
OP: here's your third:
'Rescue Me' singer Fontella Bass dies at 72
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
