    He said he would die before the election, and he did. Staggering example of a statesman keeping a promise in an election year.

    I’ve graduated high school this past Friday, and for me I’m glad it’s over as it has largely been a negative experience for me (as such, I went to a nice dinner with my family rather than go to the actual graduation ceremony as it didn’t feel right to celebrate something that was overall bad for me). I’m just ready to move on to the next phase of my life and hope that it’s much better for me overall than my high school experience...

    I guess we can confirm the 5th death of this year now: It is the guy that registers the deaths in the Deathlist.

    Just wanted to say I'll officially be attending my local community college, Harper, for the next two years. I got accepted to some universities but it's all much too expensive. Plus, this buys me extra time to think about a career choice. After Harper, hopefully I'm off to study and live in Florida.

    FOR AULD ANH'S SYNE 1/50 22nd April 2019 Many have wondered if the Crowdsource list was heading to a grand total of 0 for the year. Indeed, many people seem to think that we are in a massive drought for celebrities this year. However, the Grim Reaper has finally answered that question with the death of former Vietnamese president Le Duc Anh, who finally brings a score to the Crowdsource list. He began his career by joining the military in 1945, where he sided with the forces in the communist North Vietnam. Slowly but surely he began to rise higher up the ranks in the military, and he eventually led the Vietnam forces in the People's Republic of Kampuchea throughout the 1980s. He later entered politics, first holding the position of Minister of Defense and then becoming Vietnam's 4th president in 1992. Though the position was mostly symbolic, that position did become more important during his tenure. He was considered the most conservative of the three leaders during his tenure. After a major stroke in 1996 (which he surprisingly lasted), he stepped down the following year. In recent years, he became a favorite of drol, who is largely responsible for his high debut appearance on the crowdsource list. And despite gaining the title of immortal, Duc ended up beating out the Duke by dying at the ripe old age of 98, once again proving that immortals don't exist in the post Clive Dunn world. Many will wonder if we'll have to wait another four months for the next hit, however, news on a few picks suggest that we won't have to wait that long...

    Right, so Round 2 has finally kicked into gear. (Drol mode) Why can’t any of those “day to live at Christmas” wankers help me out? [/drol mode] So, yeah, Reptile goes 10 points clear. This is my lulling him into a false sense of security, honest, all going to plan. Nah, he’s a fine deadpooler and deserves his success, damn him. Torva goes 12 points up on 2018 DDP winner Dr T and on this form, I pity da foolz who wins between Chorizo and Grim! Clorox has fallen foul of the Curse of the Commentator (or Allen celebrates it) as AO Guy takes a 6 point lead in a tie I thought was swinging the other way early in the month. Engineer asks if its still level? No, charon is now 3-0 up. Have to presume Parrikar played for Rangers during the Paul le Guen error. Joey’s conceded, and it ain’t looking good, as Banana goes 10 points up. Was this tie a bit of a... banana skin for 'im? Finally, in the Admin Derby, 2018 Cup winner DDT has taken the lead against Death Impends. Only two draws left now – The Old Lady/Boudicca and Willz/Pedro. Both Willz and Pedro have played out 0-0s before, Pedro being a coin toss away from significantly changing the 2017 Cup (he lost to deadsox). Meanwhile, Cup players may note the declining health of top pick Billy Clayton. He may yet be crucial for Quim and DI… Round 2 1. Rad Vs. Yorkshire Banker 3-0 2. Chorizo Vs. Grim Up North 6-3 3.
