I've read that the appointed successor has very little respect among the military elite. Remember, Kim Jong-Il had been groomed to be the heir for more than a decade before his father died. Jong-un, on the other hand, was only made heir apparent about a year ago.

Not Prince Philip, although I have heard a rumour. Latest news from the BBC is he's recovering after an operation to fix a blocked artery.

They may be dead (and they may not be), but they won't STFU about it. More coffin nails!

Edit: Bob Holness, the first James Bond and host of Channel 4's Blockbusters, 83.


The first James Bond?

Roy Hunter wrote:Yes, Bob Holness played James Bond on BBC Radio back in the late 1950s. He was the first actor to do so.


Well that's shaken me...but not stirred me!

Danny Evins, Founder of the Cracker Barrel Restaurant Chain. 76. Bladder Cancer.

He may have done some douchey things, but the chain is pretty much the only reliably clean restaurant on most interstate highway rest stops where the food isn't complete garbage.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."
