I didn't know he was still alive.

Other people associate him with his successes, but I'll always associate him with glass windows falling from the John Hancock tower in Boston. It's unfair, I know.

I associate him with crossword puzzles, where his name is often an answer.

As for the Hancock Tower, I went to college in Boston and they discussed it in Physics 101; the tower was purposely designed NOT to face the wind for fear of the windows blowing in. However, by arranging it parallel with the wind, there ended up being a substantial air pressure difference, resulting in the windows exploding outwards.

Re: Dead pool 2019

Was grumpy cat the most popular cat ever? I can't think of another cat that more people could quickly identify thanks to all the related Memes. I mean .. real cats.. not like Garfield.

I'll have to update the stats. I've been prety busy lately so haven't had the chance.

I got two picks within 24 hours.

I think there's someone with 3 correct picks so far.

Re: Dead pool 2019

I wonder if somebody is putting a list of all the people that died in this decade since it is 2019?


Prince, Bowie, Reagan, Brando, Bush Sr, McCain, Robin Williams, Muhammed Ali, Steve Jobs, Elizabeth Taylor, Randy Savage, Dick Clark, Whitney Houston, Andy Griffith, Nelson Mandela. Leonard Nimoy, Chuck Berry, Stan Lee, Burt Reynolds, and Aretha Franklin to name a few.
