CNN reported him dead two weeks ago and praised him for work at Motown.

I bet the NBC headline is "Zimmerman unable to kill Mandela"

In other news, Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead...

Man, if that guy was a Roman emperor, one of his family would have already smothered him with a pillow by now.

I'd lay even money that Obama has two grandfathers.

I remember going to a ticker tape parade in NYC in 1990 or 1991 which honored him after his release from prison and when apartheid finally came to its end in South Africa.  I don't remember any other recent ticker tape parades in NYC except for championship sports teams.  A wonderful, ethical man who was so successful in his political life but sadly, not so in his personal life.

Wonderful news, perhaps, if it's true that he can be discharged from the hospital and recuperate at home.  However, he may still be on ventilator and uncommunicative and who knows what quality of life he will have.

"I'm not dead."
"What?"
"Nothing. There's your ninepence."
"I'm not dead."
"'Ere, he says he's not dead."
"Yes he is."
"I'm not."
"He isn't."
"Well, he will be soon, he's very ill."
"I'm getting better. "
"No you're not, you'll be stone dead in a moment."
"Well, I can't take him like that. It's against regulations."
"I don't want to go on the cart."
"Oh, don't be such a baby."
"I can't take him."
"I feel fine."
"Oh, do me a favor."
"I can't."
"Well, can you hang around for a couple of minutes? He won't be long."
"I promised I'd be at the Robinsons'. They've lost nine today."
"Well, when's your next round?"
"Thursday."
"I think I'll go for a walk."
"You're not fooling anyone, you know. Isn't there anything you could do?"
"I feel happy! I feel happy!"
WHUMP

That's not the way I would want to go out.  I'm fine with living to a ripe old age as long as I can function.

/if stuff like perpetual ventilators are needed for me to stay alive, take me off please!
//I hope Mandela's not being forced to linger against his will

So, if he dies, will there be riots in South Africa?

/ sorry, I've been reading too many Zimmerman threads...

God-is-a-Taco: Damn, that dude is strong.


Realistically, I know his living this long just means he got the same lucky actuarial breaks as any other 95-year-old. The cancer that died before it could metastasize, the clot that never got thrown, the truck that saw him just in time to slam on the brakes, etc.

On the other hand, I think probably spending five minutes on the guided tour of the museum's reproduction of the prison cell he was held in for thirty years would probably knock ten years off my lifespan. So yeah, damn.

KTVU is reporting his name as Gu Hom Sun
 
2013-07-14 07:27:52 PM
the rumors of his death are greatly exaggerated.

His grandson probably would have if he could get away with it.  His family is a real piece of work.

Impossible. Black people tell me that Obama was an immaculate conception.

Just to be mean, he now shares a room with Ariel Sharon.
