R13, at least one of those wives was a murderer and plenty of people have stories about her. Stop picking on Mandela.
Fidel Castro, seemingly, will outlive all of us.
I wouldn't be surprised if he is dead and they're just not telling us.
I thought the rumor was that Zsa Zsa already died, and her husband is living off her payments?
You've all wised up. I'm nowhere to be seen on this list. Won my Oscar 77 years ago, and still going strong !
No one is "picking on" Nelson Mandela. He lived a great, noble, and long life; but he's indeed going to die soon. This thread will neither quicken his death nor stop it from coming.
Frankie Muniz by means of stroke recurrence.
Let's take up a collection and send a grease fire to R13.
Not a penny for that donation from me. You idiots can rewrite history all you want but I was there and, good cause or not, Mandella's ANC was a big time terrorist organization that blew up people at bus stops, little girls in Wimpy's fast food restaurants, performed "necklacing" on anyone who stepped out of line (see Winnie)...
Not saying shit wasn't happening on the other side (Soweto) but, come on, at least attempt to see the whole picture, not just a fuckin' myth.
And, no, I am not remotely conservative. Just a realist who deals in facts.
Is Valerie still alive?
"Wimpy's fast food restaurants"
Apartheid is just "another side to the story", R32? WTF!
That little girl who got blown up in a Wimpy's when I was there couldn't spell apartheid. And I don't know if she was white or black (by then, everything was integrated anyway) and it doesn't matter. She died on behalf of the ANC.
If you are for change at any cost, well, great, there's a big world out there waiting for you to support them and their activities. Start with that asshole in Boston if you want.
I was there, didn't just read it in magazines while puffing on a joint.
R19's link looks more like MJ.
I was there. You're a goddamned fucking B.O.S.S. apologist.
Go blow Botha's rotting corpse or better yet, do a 27 year stretch in Robben. Oh no wait, for a really good time, walk down the street at night and get beaten to death.
Fuck Wimpy's and fuck you, shit stain R36.
Yet another thread self-destructs because some asshole has to go off on an unrelated topic.
Mandela was in prison for decades while all that shit went down, asshat/r32.
We have no sacred cows here so it doesn't bother me if someone thinks his time is nigh. But you have serious issues, as do most people who assert that they aren't something, i.e. "remotely conservative" before anyone even asks. We know exactly what you are, pumpkin.
My money is still on Lohan for the win.
[quote]Nancy will outlive everything.
Does that bionic bitch have any remaining human parts?
Mandela is in the hospital every week. Why doesn't he go to a civilized country's hospital for his illness?
[quote]I was there, didn't just read it in magazines while puffing on a joint.
Unless you were a participant or an eye-witness to the Wimpy's bombing, you don't know any more about it than anyone else reading the news or watching it on television.
Your claims that Winnie's actions and necklacing were done on behalf of the ANC are just loony.
Aren't the Olsen twins a perennial favorite?
Phillip, Nelson, GHWB, and Valerie Harper. In that order.
I don't know, r46. Valerie hasn't been making the talk show rounds for awhile so my guess is she's not long for this world.
I am schtill here mein bitches!!!!
Yeah, we know, Luise.
We heard from you on the Prince Philip in the hospital thread.
You think you're going to sit next to the Queen of this funeral.
Dream on, you superannuated krautie.
Jimmy Carter 88, and going strong
George Bush 88, barely holding on.
Clinton, W and Obama will not come anywhere close to 88.
Only a racist AIDS boy would compare a great man like Nelson with nobodies like those two.
R51, how do you know if Jimmy Carter can move his bowels without help? That can really kill you.
Hey R52, if you want to get into AIDS talk... there were 50 cases total of HIV when I first visited South Africa in 1988, ridiculously less than than the US at the time. Now 2/3 of the population is infected. How's that for progress? (I won't put that one on Mandela though it should've been a far bigger priority).
"AIDS... it's not your gay friend's disease anymore. Especially in Africa."
r6 made me laugh.
agreed about mandela. i will cry when he dies.
Should we add Paris Jackson to the mix? They always try again.
Don't forget about me!
Date: 30 July, 1988
Mary-Anne D'Oliveira Netto Serrano (21) was killed in a bomb explosion in the Wimpy Bar at the Benoni Plaza, Benoni on the East-Rand. About sixty people were injured, of whom nine seriously. Four men, Tebogo Kebotlhale, Molwedi Mokoena, Phumzile Sigasa and Elgas Mabore Ndhlovu who declared themselves as ANC members, applied for amnesty to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) for the bombing in Benoni and an ambush outside Lindela Hostel in Katlehong in 1988. They alleged that they had targeted the Wimpy, because they believed it was a regular meeting place of police officers. The four men were granted amnesty in 1999.
Mandela = ANC, Mandela = amnesty, RIP, Mary-Anne, say hi to him in the next few days when he arrives up there.
I may surprise you all, and my eyes may just pop out of their sockets, and I'll take my dirt nap. I think it would work out well for all of you haters.
After reading another thread here - Nick Stahl , following in Brad Renfro's sad footsteps.
I am just waiting for the news about Valerie Harper. Sad, sad, sad.
Feel sad, sad, sad for James Gandolfini who just dropped dead at age 51 in Italy.
NOBODY saw Tony Soprano on that list.
Talk about left field
All bets are off - they're really coming out of left field now. So I'll take 3 wild guesses, who's next ? Warren Beatty, Sally Struthers, Lil Wayne
I wonder if booger sugar was involved in T's death
Gandolfini was a sweaty, fat time bomb. I was not surprised at all. He wasn't on my radar because I never watched the Sopranos and never found him to be an interesting actor. Although he, apparently, was a good actor. But I get the feeling he ate like a self-indulgent pig and did not have a heart doctor. Just a hunch. FATAL heart attacks you really have to work at. Even with zero history of heart disease in a family, you should always monitor the old ticker. Have tests run. Keep cholesterol low. BASIC maintenance, especially when you are a middle aged fat fuck.
R69 seems nice.
[quote]a sweaty, fat time bomb
I've always thought of John Goodman this way, and he is 10 years older than Gandolfini was.
Phillip Seymour Hoffman is another one.
Phillip S. Hoffman - another one that's hard to believe did heroin . His fat body belies the stats that most drug users are scary skinny.
R69, he did not die from obesity, he died from a heart attack which is a mechanical failure probably from a blood clot or over rich food or constipation or alcohol.
Or exhaustion. 51 year old with a child under 1.
I would say Mandela before Phillip because only the good die young.
