    Death Race Form Guide #12 Whether you like him or not, there's no denying that Robin Williams is an absolute legend who is known for a lot of things. Some people know him for hits such as "Wichita Lineman" or "It's Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas", while others may recognize him as a guitarist for rock legends AC/DC. Outside of music, he has also had his fair share of acting roles, with some of his legendary performances including his role as Paul Kersey in Death Wish, Scotty in Star Trek, Penguin in the Batman TV shows, and astronaut George Taylor in Planet of the Apes, as well as being the voice of Shaggy in Scooby Doo. Perhaps most notably he refused to give up his seat to another white person, and it's because of this he became the 40th President of the United States 25 years later. In short, he may have had more achievements in life then any other person, well, apart from Javier Perez de Cuellar...

    You can rest assured I intend on going absolutely nowhere. I might be growing tired in my elderly age, but any fucker would if they had to inject themselves with the blood of the youthful twenty somethings they knew to keep themselves alive three times a day. My doctor says another ten years, regardless of the earthling suit failing, the reptile body has years in it. I will just morph to a new all powerful being, when the time comes. I quite fancy the Australian High Commissioner, a much nicer climate, or perhaps US President.

    Form Guide #2 AA Gill Memorial Spot (Candidate TBC) I am the notable personality who announces terminal cancer in November 2017 but fails to make the starting line up for next years DDP. If you'd picked me last year, you'd have won the Advent Avalanche, but nobody did. Perhaps I am a controversial sod, I usually am, but who am I, time will tell.

    The world's leading expert on European wasps walks into a record shop. He asks the assistant “Do you have ‘European Vespidae Acoustics Volume 2? I believe it was released this week.” “Certainly,” replies the assistant. “Would you like to listen before you buy it?” "That would be wonderful," says the expert, and puts on a pair of headphones. He listens for a few moments and says to the assistant, “I'm terribly sorry, but I am the world's leading expert on European wasps and this is not accurate at all. I don't recognize any of those sounds. Are you sure this is the correct recording?” The assistant checks the turntable, and replies that it is indeed European Vespidae Acoustics Volume 2. The assistant apologizes and lifts the needle onto the next track. Again the expert listens for a few moments and then says to the assistant, "No, this just can't be right! I've been an expert in this field for 43 years and I still don't recognize any of these sounds." The assistant apologizes again and lifts the needle to the next track. The expert throws off the headphones as soon as it starts playing and is fuming with rage. "This is outrageous false advertising! I am the world's leading expert on European wasps and no European wasp has ever made a sound like the ones on this record!" The manager of the shop overhears the commotion and walks over. "What seems to be the problem, sir?" "This is an outrage! I am the world's leading expert on European wasps. Nobody knows more about them than I do. There is no way in hell that the sounds on that record were made by European wasps!" The manager glances down and notices the problem instantly. "I'm terribly sorry, sir. It appears we've been playing you the bee side."

    Right Listers, listen up. It's just over 5 weeks to the end of the year, and I know you are all looking forward to collecting those big points next month with your current survivors. And of course I wish you and me all the best for that! But as you might be aware, December is the month when you have to prepare about 3 dozen lists for 2018, with your finger hovered over the send button at 23:59 on Hogmanay. So here is your fair warning: get those lists together for those who you think will survive most of, but not all, of 2018. You know you want to win a small donation to charidee at the end of the year. I'd also like to propose a rule change that no late entries be accepted. You have fair warning with this post, and I see no good reason why this pool is an exception to every single other pool. Now obviously I don't expect a flood of entries now...just have a good think and join in the fun. I'll issue timely reminders towards the end of the year while still trying to run this damn thing. I'd just like to say it's been a honour to host this and have enjoyed it tremendously, especially as most picks are famous enough for me to pick up on quite quickly. Cheers, YW.

    It's fast, it's furious it's f***in' good fun. Teams of 20 topplers posted on this thread or PM'd to MPFC will be collected into a masterlist to provide a carnival of carnage, the counting of which goes live in the first second of 2018. Points aplenty pour into the scoreboard until someone snags the stupendous total of 2018, at which point the event that used to be the fastest deadpool in common useage (until MPFC started something faster!) slams on the brakes and the lucky winner is duly given metaphorical back-slaps and allowed to claim a prize worth about a tenner (though tradition thus far dictates this turns into a charitable donation)*. Closing date for entries is midnight on 30 December 2017. · Bear in mind an alternative to the charitable donation is a double measure of spirts or a couple of pints bought at a DL Con and such an event is scheduled for 24 March! And here's that list of entrants in full: Bibliogryphon - bg FixedBusiness - fb After our previous MC - David Cassidy - withdrew at the last minute it wasn't lung (heh heh) before L'Elvis Francais stepped in to greet the guests at our annual shebang! Reigning champion: Death Impends And those former champions in full: 2009 - Raskolnikov 2010 - Nobody, I mean f***in' nobody, reached the winning points total 2011 - DDT 2012 - Spade Cooley 2013 - DDT 2014 - Death Impends 2015 - MSC 2016 - DDT 2017 - Death Impends

    Sorry for the very long wait. I'm currently on Thanksgiving break, so, why not make a brand new update. Our first hit from this long hit was Leo Baxendale. Aside from the one point everyone has on them, he also get the double benefit of both being unique in this pool and the DDP. With Gooseberry Crumble being the only person left who could get an additional point for guessing everyone in the correct order until they jumped back, GC gets a grand total of 8 points for his hit. That'll be the last time we'll see that bonus because Ian Brady was one slot above Baxendale. So what are people getting from Brady? Well, he gets one normal point and 3 drop 40 points, but he'll lose two points because he was imprisoned, so everyone who picked him will be getting 2 points, with RadGuy gaining an extra point for being on spot #4, making him joint 4th with msc at this time. Up next is another criminal that people hoped to be gone forever, Manuel Noriega. A unique for YoungWilz, he was also a world leader gaining him 2 more points, and with being in spot 18 with for a 25 member team, YoungWilz has 7, until we remember that imprisonment means 2 points gone. Still, 5 points is nothing to complain about at all. Now moving on to some people that we actually like, Peter Sallis will unsurprisingly give at least 4 points to a lot of people. Shout to RadGuy, msc and Rishcast for gaining an extra point for being on spot #35 (didn't expect 3 on the exact same spot). The title race between Death Impends and Captain Chorizo still hasn't changed at that point though... Now, lots of points will be getting points on behalf of Errol Christie, due to lots of joker's being given on him. For basics, he'll start with 5 points for those who chose him, the normal point, the 3 drop 40 points, and the point of being on DQSBP. Breaking down on how many points each individual gets, Sean will get 12 points for being on spot #4 and jokering him, RadGuy gets 6 for choosing him on spot 8 without jokering him, Chorizo gets 12 for being on spot #15 and jokering him, Pedro only gets 5 for not jokering him or having him on one of the bonus point spots, Msc gets 12 for being on spot 16 and jokering him, Unknown Man gets 12 for being on spot 10 and jokering him, Death Impends only get 10 for jokering him but not being on a spot that gives him an extra point to joker, Dead Cow gets 12 for jokering him and for being on spot #5, and RishCast gets 5 for neither jokering him or being on one of those lucky slots. The winners from Christie's death imo are Captain Chorizo and msc, Chorizo for breaking the joint 1st lock and being 2 points in the lead at this point, and msc for breaking the joint 3rd slot with RadGuy due to the fact that he didn't joker him... On that same day, Helen Fawkes turned out to be a unique for me (though I'm not one of the contenders at all). She will only be giving me four points, the normal point and the unique points on this dead pool. As expected, nothing changed on the contenders front with her demise... Now onto a world leader that more people like than Noriega, Helmut Kohl shall be giving people 3 points, one normal point, and 2 for being a world leader. No one got into one of the lucky spots, so everyone who picked him will be getting 3 points... Up next is Mao Kobayashi, who was both a Japanese journalist and actress. She is one of those hits where people will be getting only one point and nothing else unless they a. jokered them or b. got on one of the lucky spots. Only the Dead Cow got a lucky spot with her being on #2, so as expected, not much changed on the contender's front... A couple of people decided to plump for June Foray. She's also one of those who will get 1 point and nothing else unless one of those 2 conditions apply. Chorizo gets an extra point for being on spot number 32, which makes him extend his lead to 3 points ahead of Death Impends... That is until we account for the next hit (and a potentially decisive one), Ara Parseghian. Since he was a unique for Chorizo in this pool as well as a unique for the DDP, that means that Chorizo will gain 7 points for him, with a 10 point gap between Chorizo and Death Impends... Now for a hit more people expect to get, Glen Campbell. He will be getting 1 normal point and 3 drop 40 points for his share of the points. Unfortunately, research discovers that he had a 10 day stay in jail, and for that reason, I will be docking two points from him, making his worth only 2 points. Lots of people had him, but only msc (who had him at 15) and Bibliogryphon (who had him at 25) will be getting a third point for him. Still, that does give Death Impends a little ground for a comeback, cause Chorizo only had him as a sub... Up next is the legend known as Bruce Forsyth. Starting off with the basic point of one, he'll be getting another three for being on the drop 40. He will also be getting another batch for three points for one of the unrevealed bonuses, for Bruce as the first name. That makes him at a base of 7 points. RadGuy gets an 8th point for having him at spot #16, YoungWilz gets 8 for him being on spot #8, and Pedro also gets 8 for being on spot 20. No one gets anything for a pair though... Colin Meads was another one who starts with one point and a drop 40 package, but he also gets the one point for being part of DQSBP. The Unknown Man snags ten points for jokering him, but msc also gets an extra point for being on spot 30, and Death Impends gets another point for him being on spot 15, making him one point closer to CaptainChorizo... Our next hit is author JP Donleavy, who will start at 4 for a normal point and for being a unique in the DDP. Bibliogryphon will be receiving 10 points in the end due to his choice of jokering him at #2... Boxing legend Jake LaMotta is next on this very long update. Unfortunately, people are either losing a point or having their points the same since he went to prison for 6 months. The lucky winners for those who points remain the same are Pedro (who's on spot #30) and The Dead Cow (who's also on spot #30). Everyone else who had LaMotta lost a point... Now a two part soap opera double. Liz Dawn is one of those people who only gains one point. No one had her on a lucky spot, so therefor, everyone who picked her only gets one point... The other person who is worth more points is Tony Booth, who will be getting a normal point and 3 drop 40 points to begin with. RadGuy gets 10 for jokering him and having him on spot #2, Pedro also gets ten for jokering him and having him on spot #4, msc gets 5 for having him at #10, and Biblio also gets five for having him at 5... Hugh Hefner demise means a stiff point for anyone who picked him. RadGuy gets a second stiff point for having him at 20. Nothing else changes at this point... Gord Downie is another one who will receive 5 points to start, the basic point, the package of drop 40 points, and a DQSBP point. The following points will be awarded: Sean will recieve 12 for jokering him at #5, RadGuy receives ten for merely jokering him this time, Captain Chorizo will get ten for jokering him, Pedro will get 5 for just having him as well as msc, Unknown Man will receive 10 for jokering him, Death Impends will get 12 for jokering him and having him at spot #35, The Dead Cow will recieve 12 for having him at #1 and jokering him, and RishCast will get 6 for having him at spot #10... Daisy Berkowitz is the next person up in order to receive a basic point and nothing else. The only thing significant with him is that CaptainChorizo will be expanding his lead by one more point... Our last person for this update is legendary rock and roller Fats Domino. He's only worth one basic point, but Pedro gains another point for him being on spot #15, and Death Impends have him at #25, reducing the deficit between him and CaptainChorizo to 4 points... Here is the very long awaited new leaderboard! 1st - Captain Chorizo - 106 points 2nd - Death Impends - 102 points 3rd - RadGuy - 96 points 4th - msc - 93 points 5th - Dead Cow - 89 points 6th - Unknown Man - 81 points 7th - Pedro67 - 78 points 8th - Shaun of the Dead - 76 points 9th - Bibliogryphon - 74 points 10th - RishCast - 51 points 11th - YoungWilz - 37 points 12th - Gooseberry Crumble - 31 points 13th - joeyruss - 30 point 14th - Cat O'Falk - minus 1 point Let me know if I had missed someone up to the current DDP update (those who haven't been on an update won't have their scores updated yet). Well, it's been a long time coming now, ain't it...

    My situation worsened on Sunday October the 15th and I went to hospital around 7.00 p.m. After the X-rays I was hospitalized for precautionary measure. After two other X-ray scans, on Monday, they understood I had bronchial pneumonia and I started treatment, which was pretty successful (bacterial pneumonia needs antibiotics and few other things). I was improving rapidly when, on Tuesday night, I had an episode of atrial fibrillation and arrhitmya, which I never experienced before. They kept me in hospital for other two days and I was finally discharged On Friday October the 20th after five days, with a good prognosis. On Wednesday I was back to work. They still don't understand if the arrhitmya was linked to pneumonia or not; now I'm controlling my blood pressure and heart beat four times a day and I'll have some cardiological visits. I'm feeling well anyway and I'm glad I'm back. Thanks to all of you and congrats to DL for breaking the record while I was absent!

    You can philosophize yourself into a corner where someone will find you drooling and rocking back and forth while humming nursery songs to yourself. If you want to watch House of Cards or Pulp Fiction or The Pianist or read Mein Kampf or Bleak House or listen to the Symphonie Fantastique, fine. Do so. People are complicated. Very few are irredeemable. Accept the beauty with the ugliness. Both have something to teach us.

He has a form of Parkinson's and it affects cognitive and mental capacities as well, and his guards warned the actress not to stand next to him, so they knew he is not in control of what he is doing anymore.Why are we even discussing this?!

    A poor man meets a rich man around Christmas. The poor man asks the rich man, "What are you getting your wife this Christmas?" The rich man replies, "Diamond earrings and a Mercedes." The poor man asks, "Why are you getting her two gifts?" The rich man says, "Well, if she doesn't like the earrings then she can drive to the store and exchange them." The poor man nods. Then the rich man asks him, "So what are you getting your wife this year?" The poor man thinks about it for a second and replies, "A pair of slippers and a dildo." The rich man asks, "Why those two things?" The poor man astutely reponds, "This way, if she doesn't like the slippers she can go f*ck herself."
