Oh, so you're only including celebrities in this list huh. It's clear to me now that the lives of celebrities are more important to you than every day, common people. Such a shallow person. I despise this kind of attitude.

This thread is an outrage!!!!

I didn't forget everyone else, but there is no way to list every single person who died this year.

I would like to think this is a pathetic attempt at sarcasm, but going by some of your recent posts, I'm skeptical. I'm sure that if namkcuR knew the names of, say, every individual person who died of cancer this year, they'd be on the list.

I could say much more to you, but I'd rather keep the tone of this thread at least somewhat respectful.

Nice thread, but I want to do a wee bit of nit-picking:

Surely you don't really want the dreams of Pinochet and Saddam Hussein to be realized? They had some pretty twisted dreams...

If you can't list the names of every single person who died you shouldn't list any at all.

What kind of peculiar logic is that?

Isn't it awesome how every thread on this forum has the same people arguing the same things?

If you couldn't already tell I'm being sarcastic. I can't believe you took my posts in this thread partially seriously.

Seriously. Especially since he's been doing this thread for three years and now all the sudden it's such a huge problem for certain people? OK then start your own threads for whatever people are missing from the list!


Anyway, thanks for compiling the list again. I gotta say out of them all, I'm still stuck on Steve Irwin. Think about him every day....

Well, generally when we are paying respects to people who've died, we don't make snide sarcastic comments.
