The man that has the most ironic name ever?

That sucks, he was always so good in everything he did.

Dutch teenager Dilano van 't Hoff died in an accident during a wet Formula Regional European Championship race at Belgium's Spa-Francorchamps circuit on Saturday, his team said.

The 18-year-old, who won the 2021 Spanish F4 championship, was racing for the Dutch MP Motorsport outfit at the Belgian Grand Prix circuit.

"MP Motorsport is deeply saddened to confirm that our driver, Dilano van't Hoff has passed away as a result of a crash during the second race of the Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine at Spa Francorchamps," Dutch MP said in a statement.

The race, in wet conditions with heavy spray, was on the support programme for the 24 Hours of Spa endurance race.

Formula Two teams and drivers competing at the Austrian Grand Prix held a minute's silence.

"Dilano died in pursuit of his dream to reach the pinnacle of motorsport. Along with the entire motorsport community, our thoughts are with his family and loved ones," Formula One chief executive Stefano Domenicali said.

Media reports said van 't Hoff was caught up in a multicar collision during a late restart.
Very sad to see such a young driver died. RIP.

James Lewis, the suspect in the deadly 1982 Tylenol poisonings, dies at 76​

I have vivid memories of the Tylenol poisoning incident. I remember going to the store and seeing it being removed from the shelves. The confusion and panic caused by the senseless nature of the crime. People throwing away bottles from before there was a problem.

Then there was the changes that came to food and drug packaging. Before this, it was just assumed that nobody would tamper with items that were for consumption. Now most things have an antitamper seal of some form.
I'm sad, but also relieved. He'd been living with Alzheimer's for years - if I ever get to that point I'd want someone to let me die with dignity.
