Only if there had never been roman numerals..  9 II. Study it out sheeple.

Only if he was presumed dead after he took his boat out alone and never came.  They find the boat abandoned and no trace of him on board.  They overdid that one a bit in the 70's and 80's though.  I think they retired it.

Coincidence?  You decide.

Mr. Pike maintained that the security agencies were inept bureaucracies that left the country vulnerable. "If an attack were to be launched on America in the very near future," he said in late 1975, "it is my belief that America would not know that the attack was about to be launched."

Clearly a man ahead of his time.

That guy was a congressman? He's dressed like he's the MC for a kids afternoon cartoon show.

They do when you use your MIB flashy thingy.

They've forgot about all my crimes against humanity.

He was an Enemy of the State....

They are nothing if not Patient.

They want you to believe it's a coincidence, but there are no coincidences.

Definitely not a coincidence.  The odds of dying at 92 given you've made it to 92 are pretty high.

I was only asking questions.

I know everyone's playing along, but why the strange tag? Dude was 92, RIP.
