Oksel is singuler, oksels is plural. Wubbo is not very common, although it briefly was en vogue when Ockels went to the stars, but there's only 318 of them in The Netherlands now. A further 144 have it as a second name. There are 372 Bonnys.

Shame about Jerry Vale...smooth voice, and I always associate him in his later years in a scene from Good Fellas when the guys would take their girlfriends out on Saturdays.

Don't want to pick a fight with you Dove but it seems Jerry had a pretty good run dying at 83. Living longer than an average human life and becoming very successful doesn't really qualify as a "shame" in my book. A toast seems more in order. No offense.

World's former heaviest man dies
Image

Mexican man once listed as the world's heaviest human being has died at the age of 48.

Manuel Uribe had slimmed down to about 394 kilograms, well below his then-record peak weight of 560 kilograms, which was certified in 2006 as a Guinness World Record.

Uribe's death was confirmed by an official of the health department of Nuevo Leon state, where the city of Monterrey is located.

Uribe had been confined to his bed in Monterrey for years, unable to walk on his own.

He had to be transported to the hospital with a crane earlier this month because of an abnormal heartbeat.

Doctors have not yet certified the cause of death, but it could have been "la cheeze" they said.

I had it and him, too. It must have been a US import, 'cause the English version was "Action Man". (You pulled the string at the back and he said: "Action Man Patrol- calling!") However, between 6 and 9, I was in my "arson" phase, set light to it with him inside and chucked him and it out of a third floor window into the pond outside to "see what would happen".
The results were strangely predictable in hindsight.

Ha - nice! I have many memories of blowing up and igniting lots of my childhood action figures as well but my "arson" phase was like 12-15. Not sure I even knew how to use a lighter at 6-9!?! :mrgreen:

Action man was based off of GI Joe and arrived a few years later.
