Stanislav Petrov, soviet officer who prevented a retaliatory nuclear strike by the USSR after correctly calling a false alarm on a detected missile launch coming from the USA (right in the middle of the Cold War), and thus avoiding a possible WWIII, has been reported today to have died in May 19 of this year.

(Didn't find anything related to his death after searching this thread, hence my post)


Exemplary man. I very vaguely recall hearing of his story before, but clearly his passing wasn't given the proper due. ;-;7

Wow, didn't know he was still alive. How old, what was the cause?

95.
No mean feat for a fighter whose style was to eat punches with his face. Doubly so when you take into account that a great many of those punches were thrown by Robinson.
A nightmare. In and out the ring.

Sort of off and on topic: Raging Bull is a good movie with two significant flaws for me. One is the unrealistic depiction of the boxing matches. I appreciate that in film terms you need to create action, but I don't think I've ever seen a filmed dramatisation where boxing as a sport was even close to being depicted realistically. In Raging Bull there is no boxing, just trading of straight blows to the head on repeat, and regardless of Lamotta's 'street brawler' style, nobody soaks that many blows to the face in a boxing ring without losing their face and subsequently dying.

The second issue is the improvisation. Scorcese usually handles improv well, although a lot of the time what seems like improv in his movies is actually scripted. In Raging Bull it's a little loose and rambles here and there at times, taking you out of the movie.

And that's it. Otherwise it's a good film, but I tend to find people rate it slightly too highly. I'm not sure I'd rate it best movie of the 80s, for example.

Liliane Bettencourt, the world's richest woman, died at 94. She was the heiress of the L'Oreal company. Don't know if that brand means much for Americans.

It's pretty well known in the U.S. too. I saw many commercials for their stuff, back when commercials weren't so easily avoided.

From what little I saw of him he was funny. He was definitely not the pinnacle of health though.

Yes xxx1993, Roy Dotrice has indeed died at ninety-four years of age. Were you familiar with his work? I myself only really knew him from a brief but pivotal Game of Thrones turn, as a pyromancer to the Lannisters. Loved his almost fearful reverence when it was shown at Blackwater's titular battle, in spectacularly gruesome fashion, that he really did know his shit!

Image

I also enjoyed his testy exchanges with Peter Dinklage's Tyrion.

Alchemist Hallyne: Oh, I have not conducted this experiment! It could well be true!


EDIT: Wait a fucking minute! Now I remember, he narrated the official Song of Ice and Fire audiobooks! Man... his readings were generally excellent, though he couldn't help giving a bawdy hilarity to George RR Martin's raunchier material. Not the worst thing, tbh!

94 is a good run. 71, far less so. :sad: John Dunsworth, best known as Jim Lahey from Trailer Park Boys, has died. ;-;7 rest in peace Mr. Lahey. So many great quotes.

Fucking hell, yeah. No age at all. Only casually knew his work via Buzzcocks, but I always liked him. I had no idea he was hitting the substances quite that hard, at least not until I saw some more recent photos.

Fats Domino died today at 89 of natural causes. Can't say I knew his work all that well... I didn't even know "Ain't That A Shame" was his, despite loving John Lennon's cover of it.

Still, those 50s/60s OG rock n' rollers always get my respect. Even Chuck Berry with his creepy as fuck bathroom peeping! No them, no Beatles or Motorhead or god knows what else.

And perhaps most relevant for folks what game, he did fantastic work as the voice of Dr. Vance (Alyx's father) in the Half Life 2 series of games (HL2 and ep1 and 2). I had always wondered if they ever made ep3, or HL3, if they would have Vance survive the cliff-hanger/shocker at the end of ep2. I guess this settles things ;_;

The voice-actors of that game really elevated the material. They all did such a great job.
