I hope this is not against any forum rules but let's take a moment to note a historical moment. As you all know by now Nelson Mandela passed away late last night, aged 95.

Rest in peace, Nelson. You'll be remembered.

Your grand-kids will maybe ask this, if well-educated, so where where you late last night?

Myself I played wot and had few good battles. Not much to impress grand-kids but there it is. Perhaps you have something better.

Funny, people only seem to care about people "everyone" knows of, or is meant to know. Personally, I don't have a clue who you are talking about. To the point. Would there be more concern if you said that someone else (family member or a random person on the street) died? I don't think so.

Now, notice how funny things are. Someone good, polite, and all good stuff you can say about him, dies. While curs like... not going to say any names here still live. Now this is injustice...

Still feel sorry for your loss anyway.

Nelson Mendela was a relatively poor man in his youth and advocated violence to bring about change.  He was imprisoned until he emerged as a much older man, and obviously more mellow for the experience.

He and his family also became quite wealthy in the process. Weird.

Many people die every day, both good and bad. That is the nature of life.  Don't you just love the naivety in this thread?

PS: South Africa is now free! Free to be one of the most violent and racist places on the planet. So much so that countries such as Australia and New Zealand quietly accept many Seth Efrican families wishing to make a home in a civilized country.

Good job Nelson! You really did make change!

your family must live a very secure and devoid of worries first world life when you expect your grandkids to ask you about where you were when one of a million or so historical persons in the last 100 years died and that being one which lived to a very very very very advanced old age. It's not like he has been assassinated.

Where I was? Here, reading your thread title.
With 95 years it's not really a shock. I won't remember it.
.
Events like 9/11 and certain assassinations, those I remember.

He's like Ghandi to the black population of South Africa, and by example, most other country's too. And he got "rich" by becoming president of south Africa. In short he's a greater influence on black equality  that Martin Luther King.

The sad thing is him still being alive was the only thing stopping the still mostly white government from slipping back into the old ways. Hopefully they can keep that up now that he's dead.

It didn't really affect me personally. I actually thought he died years ago, then discovered he did not ... so the blow was softened a bit :/

I don't believe that there are people alive over 16 who have never heard of him though.

He accomplished more then 99.9% of us forumers ever will.
Good that he passed peacefully with his family around him, but it really doesnt concern me on any personal level.
