Feeling seriously old today: people whose posters once adorned my youthful walls died today. Fuck. Somehow... I hadn't realised I was that fucking old yet, y'know?
Well 52 isn't old. He didn't die of old age, he died of a terrible medical situation. Keith Flint on the other hand, killed himself, so fuck him.

Luke was Perfect. 5 year old me wanted to marry Luke Perry, damn it. Why not take Charlie Sheen instead?

Co-inventor of the handheld calculator dead at 86

Jerry Merryman was in a Texas Instruments team of 3 credited with the invention
The Associated Press · Posted: Mar 05, 2019 8:54 PM ET | Last Updated: 4 hours ago

Jerry Merryman, one of the inventors of the handheld electronic calculator, described by those who knew him as not only brilliant but also kind with a good sense of humour, has died. He was 86.
Merryman died Feb. 27 at a Dallas hospital from complications of heart and kidney failure, said his stepdaughter, Kim Ikovic. She said he'd been hospitalized since late December after experiencing complications during surgery to install a pacemaker.
He's one of the three men credited with inventing the handheld calculator while working at Dallas-based Texas Instruments. The team was led by Jack Kilby, who made way for today's computers with the invention of the integrated circuit and won the Nobel Prize, and also included James Van Tassel. The prototype the trio built is at the Smithsonian Institution.
"I have a PhD in material science and I've known hundreds of scientists, professors, Nobel Prize winners and so on," said Vernon Porter, a former TI colleague and friend. "Jerry Merryman was the most brilliant man that I've ever met. Period. Absolutely, outstandingly brilliant. He had an incredible memory and he had an ability to pull up formulas, information, on almost any subject."

Another former TI colleague and friend, Ed Millis, said, "Jerry did the circuit design on this thing in three days, and if he was ever around, he'd lean over and say, 'and nights."'
Merryman told NPR's All Things Considered in 2013, "It was late 1965 and Jack Kilby, my boss, presented the idea of a calculator. He called some people in his office. He says, we'd like to have some sort of computing device, perhaps to replace the slide ruler. It would be nice if it were as small as this little book that I have in my hand."
Merryman added, "Silly me, I thought we were just making a calculator, but we were creating an electronic revolution."
The Smithsonian says that the three had made enough progress by September 1967 to apply for a patent, which was subsequently revised before the final application in June 1974.

Merryman was born near the small city of Hearne in Central Texas on June 17, 1932. By the age of 11 or so he'd become the radio repairman for the town.
"He'd scrap together a few cents to go to the movies in the afternoons and evenings, and the police would come get him out ... because their radios would break and he had to fix them," said Merryman's wife, Phyllis Merryman.
He went to Texas A&M University but didn't finish. Instead, he went to work in the university's department of oceanography and meteorology and before long was on an oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico measuring the force of hurricane winds. He started at Texas Instruments in 1963, at the age of 30.

His friends and family say he was always creating something. His daughter Melissa Merryman recalls him making his own tuner for their piano. Friend and former colleague Gaynel Lockhart remembers a telescope in concrete at his home with a motor attached that would allow it to follow a planet throughout the night.
Despite his accomplishments, he was humble. "He wouldn't ever boast or brag about himself, not ever," said Melissa Merryman, who became stepsisters with her friend Kim Ikovic when they set up their parents, who got married in 1993.
Jerry Merryman retired from TI in January 1994, the company said.
"He always said that he didn't care anything about being famous; if his friends thought he did a good job, he was happy," Phyllis Merryman said.
RIP calculator man.

RIP Airwolf star Jan-Michael Vincent, who actually died on February 10th but his death wasn't announced publicly until March 8th.

Jan-Michael Vincent, the ‘80s star best known for his role on TV’s hit series “Airwolf,” has died.

According to a death certificate from a North Carolina hospital published by TMZ Friday, the actor passed away on Feb. 10 after suffering a cardiac arrest. The document shows Vincent was 73 at the time of his death and that no autopsy was performed.


The cause of death was listed as cardiac arrest.


The former heartthrob’s final role was in 2002’s “White Boy.”

Before Vincent’s rise to stardom, he appeared in 1978’s “Hooper” alongside Burt Reynolds, followed by “Hard Country” opposite Kim Basinger in 1981. He steadily worked in Hollywood for three decades and appeared in numerous hit TV shows, including “Lassie,” “Bonanza” and “Gunsmoke,” among others.

“Airwolf,” which aired from 1984 until 1986, told the tale of renegade pilot Stringfellow Hawke, who goes on missions with an advanced battle helicopter as part of a deal with an intelligence agency to look for his missing brother.

The CBS series made Vincent a massive star and at the time was reportedly the highest-paid actor, earning a whopping $200G per episode. Still, TMZ noted “Airwolf” lasted only a couple of seasons largely in part to Vincent’s cocaine abuse.


In 2012, Vincent cheated death after suffering from an infection that required his right leg to be amputated.

He is survived by his wife, Patricia, and his daughter, Amber.

Vincent was capable of amazing work, but he led an extremely troubled life and his career was derailed by his alcohol and drug problems that were, even by Hollywood standards, very serious. His making it to 73 was far more than a lot of people expected.

He became so bad to work with on "Airwolf" that to make him aware of how close he was to getting the axe, the producers and the network arranged for a hit-piece to be published about him, in the pages of TV Guide. Which, compared to how often networks and producers would work to conceal such problems, showed how serious they were.
