    Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter just became the longest-married presidential couple, more than 75 years and counting. https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/18/politics/jimmy-rosalynn-carter-longest-married-presidential-couple-trnd/index.html

    No of course it is totally genuine. He was competing with Kirk Douglas and Vera Lynn on yesterday's episode but he was the only one to manage to actually kick the bucket. The other two had a few swings at it but couldn't get the leverage from their wheelchairs to get a good contact. They also showed a special repeat show from September 17th where Leah Bracknell surprised everybody by beating Jacques Chirac and Ginger Baker after a slow motion action replay because in real time it looked like both Chirac and Baker had kicked the bucket before her.

    Please kindly put or shut up. I'm back. My game will be updated - probably tomorrow or the day after depending on a few factors. Yes that would my game, that I am committed to running when I'm around. The infrequency of updates as been slower recently admittedly due to a) an ongoing medical issue and b) being banned (not a medical issue, a being a see you next Tuesday issue, but frankly anyone who's entered this after 5 years of me being on the forum knows it's liable to prolonged interludes due to me being a see you next Tuesday. I'm more suprised that anyone is suprised that it is the case that I have unsuprisingly been requested to vacate them room for interludes during the course of this game). The game is not to be resuscitated as it did not die, it merely went on holiday. Normal service (think South Western trains not Japanese bullet) will resume with my reappearance.

    The backlash against Coronation Street's male rape storyline has led ITV bosses to consider whether it ought to drop the soap.

    Update time - only three hits, but Leah Bracknell and Marieke Vervoort are massive ones. Third hit was Scotty Bowers. Julie Gibson, sadly, does not seem to have received a QO for this pool. Plus, I forgot to give Grim Up North joker points for Fernando Ricksen - so he gets a big push here, that should have happened the last time: Rank Team name Points 1 Death Impends 1439 2 Clorox Bleachman 1425 3 Joey Russ 1277 4 Banana 1233 5 GCReptile 1229 6 Phantom of the Midway 1205 7 Cpt Chorizo 1152 8 Grim Up North 1147 9 Skinny Kiltrunner 1044 10 Devon Death Trip 990 11 drol 975 12 msc 925 13 Sir Creep 867 14 Book 771 15 John Key 665 16 The Unknown Man 640 17 The Quim Reaper 567 18 Prophet 566 19 YoungWillz 542 20 Grave Danger 532 21 Yorkshire Banker 450 22 The mad hatter 405 23 Fixed Business 401 24 theoldlady 386 25 The old crem 334 26 Deathray 314 27 Pedro 67 295 28 markb4 280 29 Gooseberry Crumble 279 30 Bibliogryphon 260 Some had both Leah and Marieke, some had only one, some had none. DI only had one, Clorox had both, and so the race is suddenly VERY close now. I was thinking about waiting some for John Andretti's expected demise, but both DI and Clorox have him. It does look like the race is now definitely down to those two.

    Okay now, hefty update ahead... Leah Bracknell never got her date of death sorted out, so as promised I'm treating her as the last September death. I will revise if we ever do get an exact date of death and it turns out to be earlier than any scoring September hits. She becomes the most popular hit of the year, and also carries a pantomime bonus for the 15 who went with her: Pedro, The Old Crem, and WidowsPeak get 45 + 18 = 63 points. The Unknown Man and theoldlady 40 + 16 = 56. John Key, The Mad Hatter, and the_engineer 35 + 14 = 49. FixedBusiness and Wormfarmer 30 + 12 = 42. markb4 25 + 10 = 35. Sean 20 + 8 = 28. and Exu and Prophet both get their first sub hit for 25 points, while Book lands his second sub for 50. Walter faltered... only RadGuy benefits from the death of Mr. Maude, Bill Macy. 30 base points but because he was unique and on Hollywood Squares, another 36 bonus points net him 66 total. Marieke Vervoort plummeted from 12 teams last year to just 1 this. John Key kept the faith, and is duly rewarded with 35 base points plus 28 bonus points for the combined unique and suicide bonuses, for 63 total. Geriatric German Gustav Gerneth got a Die Zeit obit, which counts for the purposes of this pool. time benefits with 45 base points and 18 bonus points for the uniqueness, giving him his second 63-point hit this year. And now for the latest scoreboard, with theoldlady positioning herself as the favorite with a little more than two months left... 1. theoldlady 363 2. John Key 277 3. RadGuy 264.5 4. msc 262 5.

    Jimmy Carter is someone who is going to be in good spirits even on his deathbed.

    Since Charles Lane died in July 2007 the number 4 slot on the Death List has been a very safe place to be, at least for the next twelve months, with not a single hit. Prince Phil currently keeping the sequence going. For a place so high up on the list that is quite surprising however it is not the safest place to find yourself. That would be at number 32 where no-one has died whilst holding the slot since Lionel Hampton on 30th August 2002. This year (and last year) Valery Giscard D'Estaing has responsibility of keeping the sequence going.

    My view is to reinstate all of them, although I accept I may be in a minority on that one. The barring of these sources was done with the best of intentions, but I do think it has resulted in the odd quirky, stylish or interesting person missing out on points. Variety is the spice of life (and death?) and while we can eternally debate the notion of 'celebrity', I can't say I'm a huge fan of the drift towards the Drop 40 mentality of deciding to pick someone because you think everyone else will as well. IMO this significantly impacts on the chances of those who don't want to follow the herd and that seems wrong to me. I would add that none of the above should be seen as a criticism of @themaninblack, who had the impossible task of trying to please everybody and didn't always get the appreciation he deserved. In fact I would go as far to say that, at times, he got a rough deal on here both as a poster and as a deadpool organiser. As a mod, there were a couple of occasions where I now regret not intervening to support him and his continued absence from these forums bothers me. TMIB was one of us, going right back to the early days, ultimately sacrificing huge amounts of his time to keep the rest of us entertained. I miss him and I want him to come back. Hopefully he will reappear some day.

    Important Decision on 'Leah Bracknell' Rule (Democracy appears to be effective on Deathlist, unlike in parliament) TLDR: Leah Bracknell is worth 243 points that will be added 'soon'. Codification in the initial post of the new 'Leah Bracknell' rule, swelling the rules to an ever more substantial size. Copying the amended text here. For the purposes of determining the date of death of a celebrity the information to hand will be used to determine the points allocated to the competitors who chose the person. In the event that an exact date is available (for the avoidance of doubt journalistic nuisance phrases 'on Wednesday, or last night/yesterday' will count as dates of death, with the date being determined by the tedious process of working it out - this is how this has always operated on these rare instances) , full points will be awarded. In the event that only the month of death is in the obituary, points will be awarded to the first date of the month (i.e Sep 1st for in September) that has been given ('the Leah Bracknell' rule) if a date is subsequently given in press before the closure of the competition window the remaining points will be added to the total. In the very unfortunate event that only the year of death is provided in the qualifying obituary the poor bastard who picked them will be awarded points to the first day of the year that is given (in the unlikely event that game year is still active). For ease of identification bullets in the rules list have been replaced with numeric identifiers, to make reference for discussion easier. The above is now Rule 5. With this in mind any future additions regardless of which other rule they sub-relate to will be added to the end, i.e Rule 17, Rule 18 so rule numbers remain consistent, they may also be added as subsets such as a) b) c) but only if the entire rules list is revised to conform to that, which I have no intention of doing in the near future..

    As she had already been dead for at least a week surely this has to have a claim for the worst DL prediction of all time?
