May I add myself here in advance?
If I ever start making posts like "On the banning and partial banning of words!" then I view my life as less than worthless and I hope that my friends here would have a collection to pay for ninjas to be sent to my home to kill me*. (*=humanely)

Adolph...Such a sad passing. :waah: He was my yoof hero! :waah: I read his biography, loved him to bits. Loved his rare speaches. Loved his actions.

He also inspired me to learn another way of communicating.

The world was a sadder place without him.

Doner kebab 'inventor' Kadir Nurman dies in Berlin

I never realised what a new phenomenon doners were when I was consuming them in the late 1970s.
One could also argue that he invented the 'pavement pizza' too.
