How do these normally work, you just throw out names

dunno, it's my first death list

calzino, Sunday, 1 January 2017 00:09 (one year ago) Permalink

I think jaymc has retired from running these, but quoting him from previous years:

]Rules are generally the same as in previous years.

Post in this thread a list of 15 celebrities or other notable people. If you'd rather e-mail me, that's fine, but please post in the thread that you've done so, just so I can keep track.

I'm not going to be a total stickler about notability requirements, but please try to be reasonable. If someone doesn't have a Wikipedia page at the very least, I'll probably ask you to choose someone else. Also: humans only.

One new rule for 2012: If a Wikipedia search on one of your picks directs to a disambiguation page or to someone else with the same name, please indicate which one you mean by appending the person's profession in parentheses, e.g. "(actress)" or "(football player)."

As usual, points are awarded based on the formula (100 - [age at death]). So picking Willow Smith (at 11) would get you a lot more points than picking Kirk Douglas (at 95), were both to die.

Please post your lists to this thread by January 9. No lists will be accepted after that date. If someone dies before Jan. 9, only the people who have already submitted lists will be able to collect points. You may also revise your list at any time before Jan. 9; after that, you'll be locked in.

Elvis Telecom, Sunday, 1 January 2017 00:18 (one year ago) Permalink

in the past it was pick like 10 names and you get (100 - age) points for each one that dies

Can a mod delete me from this? If I actually die I don't want someone to copy that post and write "whoa" under it. They would just be scolded by someone else, and then fred b would post something like "oh so that is out of line but it was ok for darraghmac to call me the c word?" It would just spiral from there and I want to get ahead of this, as my dying wish.

I have a strong apocalyptic feeling about 2017, so if there's a dead pool next year I'm gonna take a risk and fill my ballot with celebrity babies. sorry, Prince Alexander Duke of Södermanland, but if the world ends next year, you're going with it, and I may as well get some posthumous fake internet points out of the deal.
