    Political Frailty

    Vera's health started to decline after her 101st birthday. Her being still alive is barely explainable.

    Dying Off The Radar

    Cathryn Harrison (granddaughter of Sir Rex Harrison and daughter of Noel Harrison) died in late 2018. With 48 credits (many of them multiple appearances) to her on IMDb, the only news of her death seems to be a small mention in the In Memoriam section of Equity Magazine published in Spring 2019, not then available online. Two people picked up on it. Britmovie comment. Twitter comment.

    The Joker's Dead Pool 2020

    My strategy of only picking famliar names was a resounding failure last year. I may try a reverse ploy of only picking people I've never heard of.

    Why does it have to be between, can't it be highly improbable or highly implausible?

    Deathrace 2020

    The stewards are with you on that GC and it pains me to report that the only confirmation I can find is on funeral sites - it pains me because I'd picked the fucker too. Points removed (temporarily at least). So Banana remains two deaths away from victory

    Today marks the 100th anniversary of the death of Italian poet Giovanni Capurro, who's best known as the writer of 'O Sole Mio'.

    Ask A Deathlister

    I wonder why so many Americans die of cancer, since it's so easy to buy a gun in this country. Does this disease progress so quickly towards the end, or does the last phase come so surprisingly that it's no longer possible to react? I can't believe that people prefer an agonizing death, if they have a choice.

    Somewhere between highly improbable and highly implausible.

    Death By Numbers 2020

    To be fair, Samantha Last is/was an iffy case - but she was a beneficiary of the rule that in cases of doubt, "BBC coverage in any form will convince me" (it's in the rules!). And Last had it: https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-norfolk-49771450 By the way, I think the person that gave me the most headscratching was Sir Creep's own pick Erminia Motika, who basically is the mother of an American celebrity chef. She might have a different last name than given, or the name "Motika" is an anglicized version of "Mattichio". But well, it could be that she was in front of a camera herself a few times. So I thought I just go with it instead of a big discussion.

    Ahah yeah that’s true... I wondered : What are the odds of the queen dying before Philipp ?

    Death By Numbers 2020

    I'd never heard of her. There are numerous nobodies who upload multiple videos online of them applying make-up, dyeing their hair etc. They are not "famous".

    Found this on YouTube. Not that I expect anyone to actually watch this in its entirety, but he certainly appeared to be mentally sharp in September of last year, just 4 months ago. Do you think he looks visibly worse in the pic from a few days ago, as compared to this appearance in September? I actually think he looks thinner back in September.

    Has visibly deteriorated. Ankles are swollen like Vera Lynn's. 100 will be his best achievable goal.

    Your hit rate is usually admirable. This hit, however, won't give you a head start. Everybody has him on his or her list.

    Not sure what you're getting at but if I've read this right.... There's nothing to re-examine. PB was an admin when I first started posting here iirc - a year before you decided to bring the forum down a few notches and post here.... Hein fucked off a week after Johan Cruyff carked it, either a death that hit too close to home (he was dutch) or shit happening (forum members aren't immune to life's cycle) . Also a little while after setting a Dead Pool that no-one could realistically run which would have been a typically Hein thing to do a month before fucking off. Either way if Grobler can just randomly turned up after a decade and get a warm welcome, I'm sure if Hein ever wishes to return (if he's well) he'll get a warm welcome... So stop shit-stiring and have some decorum, given many forum members still wonder what the fuck happened to Hein.. (users dissapearing is fairly normal, admins not so much...)

    This pic of George Shultz was taken a few days ago. Does he look like he'll make it to 100 in December ? He's still healthy enough to have meetings so maybe he will !

    Kim Jong-Un

    Hwang Sun-hui, director of the Korean Revolution Museum and multiple-times Deputy of Supreme Assembly, has finally died at 100 of respiratory failure. The oldest Leadership member of NK and the first public NK figure to make it to 100, she had been uber-frail for years. She was the wheelchair-bound mummy who was hugged by Kim Jong-un at every important occasion between 2015 and 2017 and always looked already dead. He really squeezed the Juche out of her! The last anti-Japanese fighter to have a notable political career, she leaves Kim Yong-ju as the undisputed senior member of NK leadership. Kim, who never fought against the Japanese as he was in Moscow at the time, will be "only" 98 and not 100 in August, according to NK sources. Western sites on NK (NKWatch. etc.) are full of bullshit DoB, including for one of History's greatest losers.
