    Thanks for that. BTW - thanks for all the hard work that you guys have put in to get the competition to where it is. I have particularly enjoyed the last couple of years with the frequent updates and more extensive obits. I commend everyone who has volunteered to shoulder their share of the load to stop the competition becoming a victim of its own success. Unfortunately I don't have the time or skills to do my share so all I have is my gratitude. Thanks again!

    Alright everyone, here is a list of every candidate entered for the crowdsource list. I've revealed this for three reasons. 1. msc revealed it for the psat 2 years so it would feel weird to not follow suit. 2. This could give you an idea on who might be good candidates to push for next year's list to replace the deceased/dropped names for next year. 3. to rue their luck on any names who have died during this past year but didn't make the list so that they may prepare to push other names who they want on the list for next year. Anyways, the list goes as follows: Kirk Douglas 1081 Leah Bracknell 1066 Herman Wouk 1004 Jean-Louis Trintignant 986 Robert Mugabe 882 Vera Lynn 861 Nobby Stiles 843 Clive James 787 Fernando Ricksen 782 Olivia Newton-John 750 Olivia de Havilland 746 Prince Philip 716 Dilip Kumar 599 Tim Conway 570 Bob Dole 567 Le Duc Anh 567 Pope Benedict 563 Bob Barker 561 George Alagiah 529 Leslie Phillips 511 Jimmy Carter 494 Glynis Johns 487 Stirling Moss 480 John McCririck 475 Jill Gascoine 465 Sidney Poitier 462 Javier Pérez de Cuellar 461 Mikhail Gorbachev 454 Violet Chamorro 453 Bill Turnbull 436 Terry Jones 428 Kathleen Blanco 408 Lee Kerslake 388 Loretta Lynn 365 John Hume 355 Doris Day 350 Jacques Chirac 345 Johnny Clegg 328 Franco Zeffirelli 298 Roberta McCain 296 Gina Lolligibrida 293 Betty White 292 Jean of Luxembourg 274 Ruth Bader Ginsburg 267 IM Pei 262 John Andretti 259 Rosalynn Carter 245 Pierre Cardin 240 Sheila Mercier 218 Beverly Cleary 217 217 -

    The one place Van Halen likely out-perforn ALL the competition is in the infamous story of a backstage rider than stipulated they were provided with bowls of M&M's from which the brown ones had been removed. There was actually an intelligent and serious point to this. Link: http://www.thesmokinggun.com/documents/crime/van-halens-legendary-mms-rider

    I had a weird dream where I was suddenly elected Conservative party leader despite never voting Conservative and then I started worrying about the contents of my social media accounts.

    Let's wait and see, first of all he's getting 90 today! This article says, that Moss was not well enough to be present for the 90th birthday celebration at last weekend’s Goodwood Revival : https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/motor-racing/formula1/f1-lewis-hamilton-sir-stirling-moss-90-enzo-ferrari-juan-manuel-fangio-a9107131.html

    Sorry it's not my game. So I'll leave this to the experts.

    It was originally long-standingly incorrect, then it was changed (by TMIB), then TMIB decided it was funnier to leave the old description in, and so I've carried on his legacy.
