RIP Nelson Mandela – the Top Posts Week 49

Last week Nelson Mandela died. A person everybody knew and, more important, everybody liked. Nowadays, if something like this happens everybody gets his smartphone, tablet or computer and posts something to express his feelings about the loss of a great person.

As we see in the Top Posts of last week even Bill Clinton and the (non-official) page of the British Royal Family shared their feelings. Of course, they could even post a picture to show how close they were with Nelson Mandela.

For everybody who can’t Buzzfeed already offers famous quotes tapped on impressive pictures.

And here are the sad and happy, funny and interesting Top Posts of last week.

Here is a video as posted by Universal Studios Entertainment, as a tribute to Paul Walker. Unfortunately it would appear Fast and the Furious 7 has been put on hold with no date scheduled for continued production, but no doubt the family and co-stars need their time to grieve. This touching tribute is something that will stir the hearts of most of us car enthusiasts.RIP Paul 🙁
