Scraping bottom kinda like posting stuff been posted 24 hours now?? Lol.
Hey I had my doubts but different countries call titles different. Like the guy died today I've no idea what his title means , I assume it's equivalent to Secretery of Education here in the U.S., cuz if it ain't he's a nobody.

First of all, you posted your retort in the wrong thread, so I fixed that up for you.

Second of all, nope, he is just the head of a relatively small university based in Canberra. The Federal Minister for Education and Training, Christopher Pyne is (sadly) alive and well: https://ministers.ed...ion.gov.au/pyne

Third of all, it is "secretary" not "secretery".

We are really scraping the bottom of the barrel for "celebrities" now.

New Zealand champion body builder Justin Rys a.k.a. Mr Big, dies at 38:

His health decline had no obvious reason, but it's suspected to be the consequences of massive steroid use.

Mr Big I assume is an ironic moniker given what Roids do to the testicles

Alan Bond may be the next of a significant number of high profile Australians to kick the bucket this year.

It is no surprise that someone who has just undergone triple bypass surgery may be in intensive care, but the timbre of the article suggests that this was not expected and his condition is critical.
 
No-one on DDP has selected Bondy-quite a miss for all of us Bruces.

Just heard about it on the nightly news headlines. It is the lead story tonight. I only just saw Australia 2 in real life for the first time when I was over in Fremantle at the end of last year.

That's truly the end of an era.  The corruption allegations and trials of the billionaire enterpreneurs like Bond, John Elliott and Christopher Skase were a defining event of the late 1980s/early 1990s  for Australians.
