A New Jersey schools superintendent was arrested Monday when officials discovered he had been defecating on a high school football field “on a daily basis,” police said.

Thomas Tramaglini, 42, was charged with lewdness, littering and defecating in public, police said Thursday. The Kenilworth schools superintendent was arrested after surveillance video caught him in the act on Holmdel High School’s football field. :shock:

The story about scientist David Goodall aged 104 (RIP) who decided to end his life at an assisted dying clinic in Switzerland reminds me of Soylent Green where Edward G Robinson's character visits a euthanasia clinic and dies while classical music is playing.

In the article it even said:

And in his final minutes, he [Goodall]listened to Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, best known for its last movement Ode to Joy, reportedly passing away shortly after the piece of music finished.

RIP Burt Reynolds. Apparently he turned down the role of Han Solo and James Bond.

Burt was great, but I'm kind of glad they didn't go down the route of casting a big American star like him or Clint Eastwood as Bond.

Rainbow presenter Geoffrey Hayes dies at 76

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-45706667

Geoffrey Hayes, who hosted long-running children's TV show, Rainbow, has died aged 76.

The family would like to express their thanks to the many fans over the years as it always gave Geoffrey so much pleasure to know that he and his Rainbow team had given so much fun to TV and theatre audiences."

The pre-school show featured the characters Zippy, George and Bungle as they lived in the Rainbow House - and ran for more than 1,000 episodes.

George H W grab ass bush is dead. He was an American patriot I just don’t appreciate him setting up a political dynasty while he was at it.
