I may conceivably reconsider.

Knowing me it's more likely than not.

Yup, they just kept him in a freezer for 30 years, when they didn't need him. Then the government had him reheated a couple of years ago, so they could brag about how Algeria had the eldest statesman in the Magrebh countries.

Will be referred to soon as Oscar Niemeyer syndrome... assuming the venerable architect is not immortal, which may well be.

I'm kind of tired of citing these examples and I'm guessing you're getting tired of reading them... In closing, the people who know me in real life all respect me, as do a great many people in the Reddit brony community

Such assumption is a blasphemy.

His opposition to the Iraq War in 2002-2003 made some headlines, as did his appointment to the African Union's "Council of the Wise" but yeah other than that he basically hadn't done anything notable since he was overthrown in 1965.
