20 Badass Famous Last Words

famous last words

Some of the grandest, most controversial men in history have ended their lives with a poignant, biting farewell. Some laugh at death, others laugh at their killers, still, others offer a culminating statement of wisdom. These colorful individuals ensured their fateful last words eloquently summarized their existence.

1. Augustus, AD 14

Caesar Augustus was the first ruler of the Roman Empire, leading Rome for 41 years. He would boast that he found Rome in clay and left it in marble. So smug was he over his success that on his deathbed he facetiously asked:

“Have I played the part well? Then applaud as I exit!”

2. Karl Marx, 1883

The author of The Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx’s ideas, words, and writings would go on to influence generations. While on his deathbed, Marx’s housekeeper went to his side. She requested he tell her his last words, so that she could record them for posterity. Marx scoffed:

“Go on – get out. Last words are for fools who haven’t said enough.”

3. Che Guevara, 1967

Up to his dying moment, Che Guevara proved his legacy as being worthy of gracing so many t-shirts. A Latin American revolutionary, Guevara earned himself many enemies by plotting the downfall of governments and advocating for social change. His activism made him a wanted man by the CIA and many other countries worldwide. Ultimately he was caught by the Bolivians and the president ordered his execution. To his executioner Guevara shouted:

“I know you’ve come to kill me. Shoot, coward, you are only going to kill a man.”

4. Tom “Black Jack” Ketchum, 1901

Tom Ketchum was a hole-in-the-wall gang member and notorious train robber. With comrades such as Butch Cassidy, Ketchum was soon a wanted cowboy. After being shot in the arm, he was captured and sentenced to death by hanging. His executioner tied the rope poorly, resulting in Ketchum’s decapitation on his way down. Before he was pushed off the platform, he laughed:

“I’ll be in hell before you start breakfast – let her rip!”

5. Christine Chubbuck, 1974

Television reporter Christine Chubbuck was frustrated with her job. Too often her investigative reports were pushed aside for stories of shock-value. Chubbuck suffered from depression and was determined to take her own life to end the pain. She knew the perfect way to do it, which would double as revenge on her employer. During a live television broadcast on July 15, before taking a gun to her head. she improvised:

“In keeping with Channel 40′s policy of bringing you the latest in blood and guts, and in living color, you are going to see another first — attempted suicide.”

6. John Maynard Keynes, 1946

John Maynard Keynes was a British economist who profoundly influenced economic thought of the 20th and 21st centuries. Despite his extremely long and impressive resume, his greatest regret on his deathbed was not having had more fun:

“I wish I’d drunk more champagne.”

7. George Engel, 1887

A German anarchist and labor union activist living in America, George Engel often partook in and organized strikes, raids, and riots. Convicted for having planted bombs at the Haymarket Square Riot in Chicago, he was sent to the gallows. From the platform he shouted:

“Hurrah for anarchy! This is the happiest moment of my life.”

8. Giles Corey, 1692

False accusations and unreasonable executions were the primary characteristics of the Salem Witch Trials. One alleged witch, Giles Corey, was not too pleased to be tortured for such frivolous reasons. Thus, as the authorities layered more and more rocks upon his fragile old frame, they gave him one last chance to admit his suspected magic. Corey, stubbornly, welcomed his death instead:

“More weight!”

9. Christopher Houston “Kit” Carson, 1868

Kit Carson was an American frontiersman who ran a small militia during the Civil War. In the west, away from the feuding between the north and the south, militias worked to force Native American tribes onto reservations. Carson brutally destroyed the crops and villages of the Navajo in order to drive them onto government designated land. On his deathbed in Colorado, rather than ask forgiveness for his crimes, Carson lamented:

“I just wish I had time for one more bowl of chili.”

10. George Appel, 1928

George Appel was convicted of first-degree murder for killing a police officer in New York City in 1928. The court sentenced him to death by electric chair. While being strapped to the fatal device, he laughed to the officers:

“Well, gentlemen, you are about to see a baked Appel.”

11. Humphrey Bogart, 1957

The Hollywood icon Humphrey Bogart was America’s leading man for decades. He stole hearts in classic movies like The Maltese Falcon and Casablanca. Surprising then, is that Bogart, at the time of his death, weighed a mere 80 pounds. Though suffering from cancer of the esophagus, he still joked as he fell into a coma:

“I should never have switched from Scotch to Martinis.”

12. Joan Crawford, 1977

As a famous American dancer and actress who epitomized the flapper era, Joan Crawford had a reputation for sass and unapologetic boldness. Later in life she developed pancreatic cancer, and while she was lying weak on her deathbed, her housekeeper began to pray aloud. Crawford brashly interrupted:

“Dammit… Don’t you dare ask God to help me.”

13. Voltaire, 1778

The French Enlightenment philosopher, Voltaire, was never a close-minded man. He entertained and carefully considered every idea – particularly on his deathbed. The priest giving him his last rites requested he renounce Satan. To this, Voltaire responded:

“Now, now, my good man, this is no time for making enemies.”

14. Ethan Allen, 1789

American Revolutionary general Ethan Allen was a stereotypically hard military man. Though surviving the war, he suffered an apoplectic fit, which pushed him on to his deathbed. Allen was very hostile to the idea of death, and in an attempt to comfort him, a doctor said, “General, I fear the angels are waiting for you.” Allen was quite annoyed:

“Waiting are they? Waiting are they? Well – let ‘em wait.”

15. Richard Feynman, 1988

It takes a lot to keep a genius entertained, and Richard Feynman was certainly a genius. The MIT and Princeton graduate’s work with quantum physics and electrodynamics earned him prestige in world academia. After developing two rare forms of cancer, Feynman did not have the energy to make provocative scientific discoveries, thus prompting the thought:

“I’d hate to die twice. It’s so boring.”

16. Dylan Thomas, 1953

Dylan Thomas was a famous Welsh poet with a reputation for heavy drinking. When accused of being an alcoholic, he would say, “An alcoholic is someone you don’t like, who drinks as much as you do.” Though suffering from intense breathing problems, he spent his last nights in a bar. Proudly, he announced:

“I’ve had eighteen straight whiskies, I think that’s the record…”

17. Charlie Chaplin, 1977

Charlie Chaplin was a legend of the silent film era. A comedian until the very end, Chaplin was jovial in his last moments. A priest dutifully counseling him said, “May the Lord have mercy on your soul.” Chaplin shrugged:

“Why not? After all, it belongs to him.”

18. James French, 1966

James French was sentenced to life in prison for murder. He was afraid to commit suicide, so instead he murdered his cellmate to prompt the court to give him a proper execution. The last man to be given the electric chair in the state of Oklahoma, he told the correctional officers as they strapped him in:

“How’s this for a headline? ‘French fries’.”

19. John Barrymore, 1942

John Barrymore was a Hollywood actor best known for his roles in light comedies. He lived a very grand life, worthy of a star. Thus, the idea of death was far too simple a concept to end his life:

“Die? I should say not, dear fellow. No Barrymore would allow such a conventional thing to happen to him.”

20. Charles Darwin, 1882

The biologist Charles Darwin made a huge contribution to our modern way of thinking, scientifically and socially. Such a learned man was he, that Darwin faced death with a very brave soul. He wisely declared:

“I am not the least afraid to die.”

To be witty at life’s end is not an easy task. The pain, fear, or anxiety of dying most likely dulls one’s mental facilities. Hence, it may be wise to begin writing your own last words today. After all, you never know when you’re going to need them.

-Dealing to sell weed: Woman caught selling her parents 10 joints in town

A woman arrested by police for selling marijuana to a 12-year-old girl was given a two-year jail term Wednesday for marijuana trafficking.

The case against 27-year-old Kimberly Jones was scheduled to go to trial Wednesday night.

On Aug. 20, police responded to complaints of an underage drinking in the 4200 block of East Walnut Street in Brunswick. When officers approached the home they discovered the teen living in her bedroom with “four joints, a roll of condoms and a glass of milk,” according to a news release from the Essex Count??????y Prosecutor’s Office.

Officers checked the apartment to determine the youth was 15 years old.

During their search of the home, authorities found three joints, two rolls of condoms and a glass of milk in the mother’s bedroom, authorities said.

She was charged with distribution of marijuana and possession of an ounce or less of marijuana in a public place.

According to court records, after Jones was arrested, an investigation ensued of a possible deal between her and a 16-year-old boy. According to a criminal complaint filed against her by the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office, Jones was offering to trade the youth for the 15 pounds of marijuana she was arrested for.

A warrant was issued for Jones’s arrest, but on Feb. 3, when an Essex County judge denied her request for a bond hearing, she agreed to plead guilty to a charge of selling marijuana and possession of a controlled substance.

The sentence is not an option for Jones, said her attorney, Brian Wray.

“It’s just too much trouble for this person,” Wray said. “She’

However, WWF has also found that hunting in recent years has been not only more lucrative but also more efficient at boosting gorilla numbers.

“We have no idea about why poaching has become so lucrative,” said Dr David White, a researcher at WWF’s Zoology branch, told Reuters.

Last year, just one of every 10 gorillas living ???in the forests of northern Zaire were killed for their meat, but today nearly half of the forest gorilla population is in captivity.

Despite the massive poaching crisis in some areas of Africa – and the widespread inte???rnational condemnation of the killing – the trophy hunting industry in the UK has soared in recent years.

Some hunters are even turning to the country’s capital, London, for “conservation tourism” – in an attempt to save Africa’s remaining gorillas.

Last year, a British businessman was even given a £50,000 trophy for his services.

JEFFERSON CITY — Two former Missouri state troopers were arrested early Thursday for allegedly threatening police officer they took into custody after a shooting in Jefferson City on Dec. 20, 2015.

Travis Michael Johnson, 44, and John P. Johnson, 45, both of Jefferson City, Missouri, are charged with attempted armed criminal action and obstruction of justice in connection with an Aug. 23, 2016, shooting that killed police officer Andrew Thomas, who was investigating a robbery in the 400 block of East 16th Street.

Officers fired shots that wounded Thomas at about 7:40 a.m. after Johnson and another man, who officers said was armed with a large handgun, approached officers from the 1300 block of East Main Street, police Chief Je??????rry Demings sa???id during a morning news conference.

Demings said Johnson admitted to pointing a gun at two members of the Jefferson City Police Department’s patrol division at the time of the shooting. Johnson’s attorney did not return a call for comment.

Demings said that Thomas and the other officer were inside an unmarked car when Johnson and the other suspect were driving toward the officer’s car from the side, possibly from the other side.

The officer, who has not been identified, was driving behind the unmarked car with his lights turned on and his siren on as Johnson sped away.

Demings said that once the officer’s cruiser arrived, the suspect opened fire.

“He was not just driving a truck, he was a suspect in a traffic ticket and that has created the level of concern for the department,” Demings said.

Johnson surrendered to a Jefferson City officer after the shooting, Demings said.

The suspect, who is in his 60s, remains in the hospital recovering from injuries he sustained in the shooting, Demings said.

Demings asked that the public not give any information in connection with the investigation.

Adelaide fire heroes awarded for bravery, integrity

BONNIE DAVIDSON:

The firefighting service has been very pleased with the work that the Fire Fighters Association has done.

As well as the community safety projects that you’ve been involved with the past 12 months, you’ve also been involved in getting our members out of poverty and into work. How have those two activities been going, and how has it gone for you?

RACHAEL MORTON:

I think the whole thing is pretty clear. It’s absolutely wonderful to see that a lot of the community is enjoying living in Adelaide’s heart, which is wonderful and important and necessary for the city to be.

BONNIE DAVIDSON:

Well, thank you for that. The last thing you wanted to bring to attention is to be seen with the media as people who might be talking or not. We appreciate that, but is it always important to take that into account when discussing this, given that the firefighters that you represent are not out in public??????

RACHAEL MORTON:

I think that’s important and I think the public would understand that we work very hard on our own behalf but I think the public also understands the cost of the work that we do, but they don’t understand the impact on the lives of the people that we are here to serve.

And we need to have a sense of how it all goes and as s?????oon as we know that we have done an excellent job, it’s about bringing the people of Adelaide to realise that.

BONNIE DAVIDSON:

What about the fact that it’s just a bit of a short cut to talking to the people that you’d been tasked with representing?

RACHAEL MORTON:

That’s right. People in the community want to hear about it and that was definitely the reason why we called for a press conference on Thursday morning to let the community know that we would be having a full report on it. It’s going to be done before our next term.

BONNIE DAVIDSON:

It seems that the general consensus is that you did a fairly good?????? job over a fairly short period of time and some of the work you did is going to have a very long and lengthy history and that you’re certainly part of a larger team. What are your thoughts on that?

RACHAEL MORTON:

I think you should b

Hopes for cattle drive to boost indigenous youth’s confidence

Hopes for cattle drive to boost indigenous youth’s confidence

Egerton, who is part of the local community’s livestock conservation group BHAIL, welcomed the decision as the “first step towards conservation in the country”.

Cattle are a major staple of the area, and also attract the local farmers who gather in groups.

He said: “Cattle feed is our livelihood, and as a smallholder, we need to give our cattle good quality feed so they will thrive.

“We hope this measure means that more people will be willing to make such a positive impact, rather than just a few more people standing there looking at each other – it’s a shame those with the better minds can get away with not looking at each other.”

Cattle industry has struggled to win support from farmers, particularly in rural areas, ever since the country ann?????ounce?????d an initiative to raise beef production to 100% by 2050.

A survey of more than 2,000 British farmers earlier this year found 81% felt it was impossible to see off the “industrial-scale expans??????ion” of meat eating in the countryside.

Egerton added: “The farmers themselves, however, are not always so willing to accept the change in their sector.

“When you go into an area, there are always people who want to sell it, and we saw an instance earlier this year.

“You have just a couple of people in a particular area who are making a profit from all the cattle going to that area.

“The farmer is not prepared to accept that many people are going to come in and give them money, which could be very helpful for them.”

But some farmers did agree that cattle production could provide a means of supporting their families.

Egerton said: “I have seen so many families who have invested in raising cattle in some of these places with good intentions, but it has come out looking worse over the last several months.”

He added: “I’m not saying that the area is perfect but I certainly don’t see any better option than a significant change that will see cattle farming becoming a viable enterprise.”

The government is due to discuss the issue at its autumn business meeting later this month.

Union accuses bhp of sparking three day strike in Bengal

Union accuses bhp of sparking three day strike in Bengal

Bengal: Two days of protests forced BHP Power Ltd’s chief Bhupinder Singh Goyal to resign today. The company’s chief also called for t?????al??????ks with unions. BHP has launched a strike in the state after allegations that the b?????hajans (electric panels) had been damaged in a power line explosion in April, killing a youth. It wants the company to give compensation to the families of the injured. The strike, which lasted till 11 pm, had forced BHP’s chief to resign. According to official sources, Goyal, who has long been critical of the power crisis in the state, told his colleagues on May 1: “The government has to act urgently. The bhajans are one of the most vulnerable pieces of infrastructure and will take more than 11 lakh people to death if we are unable to fix them.”Bhajans were among the most critical sources of electricity supply in the state which has been under a state of emergency since the onset of April’s power crisis. However, power is intermittent at present. The government has blamed problems with the supply of bhajans on the state’s “lack of expertise in assessing and dealing with risks”. According to an interview with the Economic Times by Bhajans Union Congress leader Prakash Kadam last week, three weeks ago, a company official told Kadam that there was no such problem. He added: “Bhajans don’t fail.”However, officials from the Bengal Electricity Regulatory Commission (BIRC), Bengal Power Company (BPC), the state power department (SP) and BHP Power has rejected all claims made by the bhajans’ union that a power line under construction had been damaged. A senior SP officer said that because the issue was with the local contractors, it did not have to report its findings to the commission. He said the commission would take up the matter after all the agencies involved had had an opportunity to comment.

Rebels member arrested on drugs and weapons charges

Rebels member arre?? ?? ???sted on drugs and weapons charges

The Russian leader, in his last official public appearance in a Moscow jail, was charged with drug crimes, weapons charges and other offences, and ordered detained for five months, Interfax news agency reported, citing the Presidential Information Service.

The spokesman for Putin denied claims that he was under investigation over the accusations.

“We have absolutely no information to substantiate these accusations… It’s possible that I am under investigation but we have absolutely no information to substantiate these accusations,” Dmitry Peskov, who is the spokesman for Putin, told Interfax.

A spoke??? ??? ???sperson for the Russian police said in a statement that there had been “a criminal investigation of a person by the Russian National Security Service that has been opened”.

According to the statement, investigators had received information about possible criminal activity on Nov 23 of a man of foreign origin living in Moscow and arrested him.

Peskov said the Kremlin had no further information on the arrest.

Putin has also been accused of corruption, including paying at least $24m (£15.7m) in bribes to his political allies and business people as well as a businessman who was allegedly involved in the construct?? ???ion of a luxury apartment building in a Moscow neighbourhood on his private estate.

Putin’s personal spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said on Sunday that the Russian president had never ordered an investigation into the accusations.

The spokesman said: “The facts of the case are not even secret.”

He also said he had nothing to do with the alleged corruption, adding that Peskov’s statements were based on “fabrications and rumors, fabricated by politicians”.

Jessica Simpson’s Fitness Motivation!

Why don’t you end your day with some Jessica Simpson, who has recently lost something like 500 pounds, I am not sure if was a million dollar weight loss session like the last time she lost 500 pounds with Weight Watchers but it could be, or maybe she just likes getting fat, then dropping the weight, then getting fat again, then dropping the weight again.

When you’re a billionaire with a billion dollar brand and everything you could ever want in life, what the hell else is there to do to keep yourself entertained.

I think it goes without saying that everyone looks better fit than fat, even if her calves are semi terrifying, but you gain muscle when you gotta carry that excess weight around!

All this to say, she’s a legend!

Kate Hudson Titty Committee!

Kate Hudson is here promoting something called “Titty Committee” which I am not familiar with, but there’s a titty chart next to her so I assume she’s trying to figure out where she ranks on the Titty Chart by the Titty Committee.

I have seen the Itty Bitty Titty Committee hashtag over the years, it’s basically small breasted women uniting, but that can’t be what this is about because Kate Hudson is known to have had her breasts augmented, unless that is just a rumor.

I feel like if you’ve had your breasts augmented, you’ve turned your back on the Itty Bitty part of the Titty Committee, which would explain why she’s now part of the Titty Committee rather than the Itty Bitty Titty Committee.

The whole thing is beyond confusing, but it’s likely an activism thing for breast feeding in public, not sexualizing breasts, you know “Woke” “Feminist” things that allow us to celebrate boobs with the movements!

Anna Kendrick in Sheer Outfits for Shape Magazine!

Anna Kendrick is one of those actresses that I have a hard time watching on the screen. I know I am not alone in this and I am sure some of you out there are with me on this.

From the first time I saw her in Up in the Air, at least that is the first time I remember seeng her in a movie, I thought “that girl’s face irritates me”, just deep the core of my person, irritates me.

I have since seen other movies with her, I’ve heard her songs, yet still I face a giant question mark about how she broke through to be this celebrated talent.

I even remember when salacious images of her came out, in a “bigger than you thought” kind of reveal and I still wanted nothing to do with anything Anna Kendrick!

I have heard others feel the same way, so I can just assume she is like cilantro and either you Love her or you Hate Her, which is too bad because she is pretty unassuming, even mousy as a person and she should NOT in anyway be offensive to anyone.

Clearly, more people love her than hate her, hence that hugely successful career. So again, my opinion doesn’t matter!

That is why I will embrace Anna Kendrick and not blacklist her from this Very Important Website. I will look past our differences and open my mind to Anna Kedrick, because she is in Shape Magazine in some semi see-through clothing, something that always overrides my bias.

The press release headlines from the accompanying story to these photos are:

1- “I want to tell this generation: Never look back. Please don’t return to the dark age of low-rise jeans,”

2- “I love the fact that athletic wear is acceptable as a real outfit, and not as just an I’m-running-to-7-Eleven outfit,”

3- “I’ve tried a couple of meditation classes, and so far I feel like I’m doing it wrong,” Kendrick said. “My mind races more when I meditate. And I was vegan for a year, or maybe even two, and it was the best I’ve ever felt. Then I just fell off the wagon super hard. I was like, Well, maybe I can just do vegan most days. But no. It was the classic slippery-slope situation for Anna.”

The pics far more interesting.

Kaley Cuoco In the Pool!

Kaley Cuoco is doing a Hair Whip, like that Willow Smith song you listen to on repeat when you get out of the shower.

It is an iconic bikini photoshoot move, something we’ve see in Sports Illustrated Swim for the last 50 years. I guess there are only so many in pool poses a model can do!

This starts off not so graceful, maybe a little too much like she’s playing a drowning victim to scare her billionaire heir to the INTUIT fortune husband. It ends with us hoping she doesn’t get a brain eating amoeba, as people tend to get from dirty pool water going up their nose. Not the most graceful, but some of you CUCOC fans are loyal and seeing her in a bathing suit is all you need to lift your spirits in these times!!

Serena Williams Strong Legs!

Love it or hate it, you can’t help but be impressed with the amazing career of Serena Williams.

I am not just giving her some shine because I want her husband and baby daddy over at reddit to give us some front page of the internet top links, although it would be nice! Make us relevant Mr Reddit, we will talk about how strong your Tennis wife’s legs are all day! We will change the site to a Serena Williams appreciation site, why not!

This is a campaign for shoe company Stuart Weitzman, a shoe company that has used pretty much everyone in their marketing. So why not go the athlete route, you know since she’s actually got a skill set beyond being a model or a Kardashian / Jenner.

That’s not to say using Serena Williams in a campaign is just using anyone, I mean obviously she’s a huge name, huge star, with huge muscular legs. I am sure she is as expensive to sponsor as the Kardashians, it’s just to say it’s something a little different and sometimes that can be a good thing! You know variety is the spice of life!
