I always thought that the exploding cigar was their best "trick" ever.

Among all the admitted 600 attempts…

Fidel Castro survived half a century of CIA assassination attempts before his death at 90 | Daily Mail Online

Sort of reminds one of the Tom & Jerry or the Willie Coyote & the Road Runner cartoons.

Fidel en route to Santiago
Cuba has not slept. Cuba has not slept for several days. This is a nation that is silent, that pays tribute, that honors.

For thousands, daybreak came earlier today. Cuba has had bright dawns for almost six decades.

In the Plaza de la Revolución José Martí there are already many people waiting, they have come to accompany their leader once again: Fidel, Alejandro, the man who became a people.

The ceremonial battalion awaits. They are young, very young, and they march impeccably.

At six o’clock the artillery salutes resound, as if to remind us that there is silence, because they sound louder, they move.

It’s also time to raise the flag. At half-mast....




The carriage that will carry the ashes is dressed with white flowers. The soldiers, as if caressing it, place the urn. The friendly escort is already in position. The command is to mount. And they start moving.

Hundreds of kilometers await ahead, recalling in reverse the Caravan of Liberty that then celebrated the victory. And triumphantly he returns to Santiago, to be close to Martí.

The journey begins first toward the square, then a city, another, the whole of Cuba... Then begins the infinite cry of “Viva!” and “Glory!” to Fidel, to Alejandro, the man who became a people.

Thanks.

I assume that's a fact and not something you made up.
