The most famous dead sparrow in the history of cricket will fly again this week — for the first time since it was killed in a match at Lord’s Cricket Ground in 1936.
It will co-star with another celebrity dead sparrow: the renowned “Domino Sparrow” that was shot in the Netherlands a year ago because it disturbed a television company’s attempt at a world record in domino toppling.
Other famous sparrows that will star in Rotterdam include the first-ever collected House Sparrow in the United States that is still kept in the American Museum of Natural History in New York (1875, offspring of the earliest immigrant sparrows), and the ‘Freedom Sparrow’ from the Australian Museum in Sydney.

If you're new to the terms, dead or death pools are fantasy-football-style games in which players wager on which celebrities will die in a given year.
According to the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office in Harrisburg, dead pools, though a form of wagering, are not illegal in Pennsylvania as long as the house (the person running the pool) does not get a cut of the winnings.
Most are older celebrities, famous people with a known illness, or those who are involved in dangerous activities, such as drugs, crime or extreme sports.

Let’s take famous dead people, freeze-dry or otherwise prepare them for extremely long term mummification in space, and send them along with useful robots to the moon, Mars, Jupiter’s moons or elsewhere.
I would endorse putting robotic endoskeletons into the carcasses of dead famous people and sending them to Mars to build vast metropolitan areas filled with Starbucks and McDonalds, and strewn with garbage and lawyers, so when we finally get to Mars en masse, it will feel like home.
famous, is because it gives ordinary people hope that they themselves have at least a chance to get famous.

 Every single note of Dead's famous 4-night run is finally out in a CD set. Good luck finding it.
In 1969, at the height of the Grateful Dead's rise from the San Francisco ballroom scene, the band recorded a live album over four nights at the Fillmore West, "Live/Dead," that's considered not only one of the band's best, but one of the best live albums ever made.
Dead historian and publicist Dennis McNally suggests on the boxed set's liner notes that the band focused the repertoire on those four nights specifically for the recording, but Weir doesn't think so.
The Dead at that time rolled on a twin axis provided by guitarist Jerry Garcia and Pigpen, whose outstanding improvised vocals on bluesy numbers such as "Turn On Your Love Light" were an inevitable highlight of Dead shows.

 Scotsman.com Heritage & Culture - Myths & Mysteries - Dead famous Scots
FOR SOME of Scotland's most famous sons and daughters, common notoriety was easy enough to achieve during their lifetimes – particularly if they were the perpetrators or victims of grisly crimes – but true celebrity came only after their demise.
The simple reason that Scots remember them is that their ghosts are believed to live on, haunting the forbidding castles and gloomy closes that now seem almost purpose-built for a spot of paranormal activity.
Another of Edinburgh's most famous spooks is that of Major Thomas Weir, a preacher and captain of the Town Guard who was burnt at the stake in 1670 after confessing to crimes including witchcraft and incest with his sister, Grizel.

Opening with the Isoleé splice and dice of Recloose's 'Cardiology' (scouring off the overly polite edges), 'Famous When Dead' is reasonably worth the admission price alone for the Two Lone Swordsmen refit of Villalobos' 'Dexter'; a Joy Division marinated affair that turns even the most mundane of environments into a grand, shooting-star lashed cinematic vista.
As for the rest, Tejada & Leviste are plunged up to their elbows in a vat of rimy, dub flavoured glitch, Rework are the epitome of aloof smoky electro charm, whilst Isoleé's solo cut is a cinematic slice of shoegaze/house pie.
