The Tom museum brings to mind Jimmy Savile keeping a private museum of his mother's clothes in a wardrobe.

Captain Tom 100 invites people to carry out a challenge, such as climbing the stairs 100 times or baking 100 cakes.

Baking one hundred cakes? That's a ludicrous amount of cakes.

I'm going to soil an adult nappy 100 times.

Then I'll probably do something for Tom.

Someone who bakes 100 cakes will be more likely to break the rules and have people over inside their house who aren't part of their bubble, as they need as many as possible to use up 100 cakes. Either that or they will all be thrown away. You'll get smaller supermarkets running out of certain products because people have bought them to bake 100 cakes. No raisins in Tesco, Emma's bought them all to raise money for charity.

What will you be doing? Say 100 horrible things about Sir Tommy? Do a 100 crappy Wrongs in MS Paint? Rape and/or murder 100 brown kids?
Oh for the love of crap, anyone else would think he was the only person who ever raised money for anything.
Quote
He died in February aged 100 and, on Tuesday, Ingram-Moore said: “My father was insisting right until the very end. He was insisting he was going to come back out and keep walking and raise money. So how can we not do it? He gave us hope as a nation. He represented us around the world as a beacon of hope. He’s passed the mantle on to us.”

She is encouraging people to run 100 metres, score 100 goals or bake 100 cakes – whatever they choose. The latter, she said, would have been one of her father’s favourites because he loved Victoria sponge.

She suggested people could build 100 sandcastles, write a 100-word poem or tell 100 people: “Tomorrow will be a good day.” As for Captain Tom’s family, they plan to continue his legacy by walking their own laps to raise as much money as they can.
Fuck off, Hannah. Stop hawking your dad's legacy for attention. Who has enough time to bake 100 cakes? Unless they're cupcakes, maybe. Maybe I should catch 100 Pokemon. Or spunk £100 on Everton's next game.

And he wasn't a beacon of hope for a lot of people. FFS. This country's gone mad. I'm glad I'm not on Facebook cos saying this would get me crucified.
Why do they keep avoiding the part where this silly old cunt managed to be killed by the very disease he got famous for raising money for in the first place.
Funny, innit.

Premier League teams to wear a silhouette of Tom on their shirts for the duration of his birthday week, with his smash hit version of You'll Never Walk Alone replacing the fake crowd noise for all matches.

When Captain Tom died did anyone say "down the hole with Captain Tom" in a similar rhythm to Space Oddity? If not I'm not really surprised as it's not that funny

I met a traveller from a normal island,
Who said—“Two vast and trousered legs of stone
Stand close by Bedford. . . . Near them, on the ground,
Half sunk a shattered stroller lies, laid down,
With wrinkled dick, and grin of perverse rand,
Tell that its daughter well those obsessions read
Which yet survive, stamped on this lifeless crap,
The CaB that mocked them, and the mob that fed;
And on the pedestal, these words appear:
My name is Capt' Sir Thomas, Twat of Twats;
Look on my Walks, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Cunt, boundless and bare
The lone and level fens stretch far away.

Shoulders?-Stomach!

Thomas messaged me with 'This is ground control to Captain Tom, you've really made the grave", which is funny.

To commemorate Captain Tom I sent £100 to his daughter, it's what he would have wanted.

Will Captain Tom be on permanent display, like Lenin?

I think that's the least you could expect of a so-called Captain Tom Museum.

Put him on the hundred quid note. I don't care if you have to spaff out a new law to create it. It is what he (well his daughter...) would have wanted.

Captain Tom aside, it was a memorial for covid victims. Would approve execution for the perpetrators.

Pretty bold use of dates on that bench there (unless it means it's for the victims who died within that time, which would make more sense).

I can't even really figure out what vandalism's taken place - obviously deliberately defacing a memorial to COVID victims would be horrible, but the scattered flowers surely could have easily been a squirrel or something pulling them out of the aqua block, as the bouquet and the rest of it looks intact?

The only thing I'm seeing is someone's attempt at a game of Tic Tac Toe on the plaque specifically for Tom:



Looks like it's a serious game, must be at least... 100 squares in that grid... hey, it's just someone getting prepared for the 30th, it's what he would have wanted!

Yeah ive no idea what's even happened. I cant find any images of the plaque on the ground before. That is also a really shit bit of flower arranging. You're not supposed to see a big giant brick of Oasis.

Oasis

Fucksake, that's what it's called. Not "aqua block". Lockdown got me losing my marbles.

I cant find any images of the plaque on the ground before.

Here we go:



He's an honorary freeman of everywhere now. WooOOOoooOO

I'm not going to link to the Mail article where that image is from and I know reading the comments won't do anything to slow my hurtle into madness, but this one made me laugh

Goodness my parents (one of each sex and properly married) would have absolutely flattened me! I will admit to trashing some sewage piping on a building site that had replaced lovely farmer's fields with a Vic Hallam box housing estate, but that was on environmental grounds!

Same sex marriage is what really finished off Are Tom, this never would have happened in the good old days when kids would smash up part of someone's home for fun instead.
