    This is the updated scoresheet. It includes all the names included in the last post. It also included points which seem to be missing in the last update for Banana (Tom Belso) and John Key (Sam Lloyd), If You think I have missed any names, or miscalculated your score, let me know and I'll change it. Grim Up North has taken a commanding lead with 5 hits since the last update (as he so modestly informed us!). Banana, Radguy, greptile and Etush have all jumped up into contention with 3/4 hits in August/September. At present, it looks like a two horse race between Grim and CaptainChorizo.

    She was a "lovely decent" person? Where is your evidence for this? Did you know her personally? People need to get this notion of all Republicans = bad/evil, all Democrats = good/angelic out of their mind. It's spewed all over social media by younger people and it's a bias which seeps into a lot of media both in the States and in Britain. The bottom line is politics is a nasty game in this day and age. There are cranks, morons and reprobates on all ends of the political spectrum. RBG deliberately kept herself in a role which she was unable to perform the duties for because of serious health problems in order to spite the opposition. In interviews she made it absolutely clear that she loathed Trump and that she was staying to antagonise him and his supporters. Those are not the actions of a "lovely decent person". It's an egocentric game, with two opposing sides of nuts all at each other's throats and I don't think any of it is commendable. Rant over.

    OK, there has been no objections in the past 8 hours, I'll do the totting up for the rest of this years event. The last update was on 26th July. The deaths that I can find that are not in that update are as follows: 19th July: Ruth Morrissey 20th July: Liz Clarke-Saul 3rd August: John Hume 4th August: Cullan Brown 9th August: Kamala 10th August: Raymond Allen 11th August: Sumner Redstone 12th August: Francisco Jose Cox 20th August: Frankie Banali 25th August: Arnold Spielberg 15th September: Pat Smullen 18th September: Ruth Bader Ginsberg 19th September: Lee Kerslake If I've missed one of your picks from the list, then its probably your own fucking fault for picking ridiculously obscure names. I mean even Google couldn't manage to find some of these guys. I will post an updated scoresheet shortly

    I am happy to take over the totting up of scores for the rest of the year, unless anyone has any objections. It probably won't be done quickly, it possibly won't be done entirely accurately, but it will be done. This does not, I repeat does not, indicate a willingness to run it next year. I've no idea how to start a pool, I don't have the time, and I don't have enough bilious hatred of the world to give it that authentic Deathers feel.

    Worth remembering that Ginsburg's first pancreatic cancer diagnosis happened while Obama was president and had control of the Senate. Pretty much a perfect opportunity to retire then and there. This complete clusterfuck could've been avoided entirely.

    Yep. No consideration that both parts might be necessary. Morons. I'll tell you what else makes me laugh is how many dickheads you see wearing the face mask over just their mouth, leaving their nose completely out. How fucking useless is that? That's a bit like putting a condom over just your bollocks.

    Sorry for your losses on a personal level. But yes 2020 is a heck of a year with regards to celebrity /iconic deaths and will be until the end is my sense. I do believe a new record will be set by the official deathlist.

    Do it! Your second line there is already approaching authentic Deathers indifference.

    Though that new thread is unnecessary, I do like the idea of discussing whether the record will be broken or not. We are now ahead of 2017 by about 10 days, who’s 15th hit is about a month ahead 3 years ago. However, I’m not 100% sure that it’ll be breaking the record. I’d call it a coin flip at this point. The thing about 2017 is that when the 14th hit came around, there was still many obvious dead certs still alive at that point (thinking about Downie and King Michael in particular). This year? Probably the closest to a dead cert is Leon Spinks at this point, and he’s not a guaranteed death either. Trebek’s treatment is working right now, while Tom Smith has his tumors shrunken. I think at this point those two will more likely see the year out than not (though a sudden downturn for either would not shock). Outside of that, there’s certainly potential for some of the rest (like Delors losing his wife, or Joanne Woodward feeling such a has to be this year name), but none of them are guarantees. In fact, a big reason why we’re at 14 hits today is because the old’s people lottery has been successful on this years list. I’d actually consider 10 of the 14 hits part of that old people’s lottery (even folk like Stirling Moss is part of that cause he could’ve died at any point). The four who weren’t old people’s lottery names? RBG, who people could deduce that she couldn’t really fight off her pancreatic cancer last year; Terry Jones, who while he had dementia there were some end of the year warning signs that he was likely on his way out; Genesis P-Orridge, who was really ill with leukemia; and Daniel Arap Moi, who, unlike the others over 90, had a ton of life threatening ailments at the end of last year that made him a sooner rather than later name. I’m not saying the record is impossible, it is an enema year after all, but I just wouldn’t be surprised either way with what happens.
