    Gerald Ford dies

    A bit late I know, but I figure I will make a thread on it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerald_Ford

    RIP though.

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi, a true legend of CW

    He should be in this song:

    All: We are the mediocre presidents.
    You won't find our faces on dollars or on cents!
    There's Taylor, there's Tyler,
    There's Fillmore and there's Hayes.
    There's William Henry Harrison,
    Harrison: I died in thirty days!
    All: We... are... the...
    Adequate, forgettable,
    Occasionally regrettable
    Caretaker presidents of the U-S-A!
    Or something.

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi (AKA "cricket player"; "Bob"), 1/11/1990 - 15/4/2006

    Naah he wasn't that bad.

    Good bit of Simpsons research though.

    Saw him a few months ago on Fox News and he was looking past his best-by date. Can't say I'm too shocked he's gone.

    He wasn't much of a President, but you have to consider that he came between Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan for the Republicans. Seen in that light, he's not such a bad guy.

    Fox News are practically dedicating the whole channel to him!

    Not surprising from them, I guess.

    Don't link to wiki sites when someone dies. /b/ on 4chan have a thing where they edit people's wiki pages to say they died and people believe it.

    Anyway, RIP. Was a ****ty president though.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    RIP. He was a decent human being, from what I have read about him. The only President in U.S History who was never elected to the office of VP or President. Nixon appointed him as VP after his first one resigned. Then Ford took over after Nixon resigned. His legacy, sadly, will always be about pardoning Nixon. The American public couldn't forgive him for that and he lost the Presidential election to Carter. Incidentally, not that anyone cares, but he was probably the most athletic U.S President ever. Was a good college player back in the day.
