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

    Like every summer, I'm going to Poland with my family. This time for about 2 and 1/2 weeks. Right in time for my 18th birthday too, me and my friend over there got big plans. My flight leaves tomorrow - Saturday - from Chicago O'Hare at 17:25 to Warsaw (LO 2), and I have an hour layover there before I land in Rzeszów (LO 3809) at 11:30 local time Sunday. That info of course being for Cat in case he wants to track. I get back on August 1st. Don't think I'll be visiting the forums during my vacation. ABC title defense team already submitted. So this is goodbye for now.

    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...

    Apologies for the tardiness but... Took me a few days to get details of a fundraising page. Clorox had requested a cancer research donation as his prize and I've just confirmed I stuck £20 into someone's personal fundraising challenge for cancer. Who says we're sickos, eh?

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

    Better late than never. I have for whatever reason agreed to the impossible task of taking over the ABC Deadpool from the masterful oversight by Wormfarmer. So for one last moment let's give him a big And since we are looking back to ABC Deadpool II, a huge congratulations to the champ, RadGuy. Our scoring system will remain intact, word for word, so the 55-point standard set by RadGuy is your target. So let's get this party started! The rules: Submit a list of 26 soon-to-croak people to me via PM. The first name or last name of the first person must begin with an A. Second person with a B. You get the idea. This game doesn't require you to choose a joker. Qualifying names will be those getting an obit by sources used by the Windy City Deadpool, also found on its own thread at this site. That pool, in turn, uses the obit sources of the Derby Dead Pool, but adds The Independent; US sources New York Times, LA Times, CBS News, Fox News, TMZ, and MSN. Also acceptable are CNN, and the Associated Press as legit obit sources. Plus the following International news sources: http://www.cbc.ca/ https://www.theaustralian.com.au/ http://www.heraldscotland.com/ https://www.univision.com/ There will be at least 250 names, probably approaching 300. Please police your own obits and notify me by PM or a post on this thread. As Wormfarmer stated, this applies particularly to European obit sources. SCORING: A hit using the first name (all letters except as below) - 1 point A hit using the last name (all letters except as below) - 2 points A hit with the first name . . . (A, E, I, O, U, Y) - 2 points A hit with the last name . . . (A, E, I, O, U, Y) - 3 points A hit with the first OR last name . . . (Q, X, Z) - 4 points A hit with an alliterative name scores the points for both first and last names as specified above (so an alliterative at the A spot would be worth 5 points, the B spot would be worth 3 points, the Q spot would be worth 8 points) BONUS POINTS: Person was born in the year 1939 or later - 2 points Solos = 3 points Duos = 1 point All Vowel Bonus - hit all five vowels (A, E, I, O, U) using LAST names = 5 points / hit any four vowels using last names + the letter Y = 4 points Example: if someone gets a solo hit with Zadora Zephyr, who was born in 1940 (assuming 10+ entries), the score would be 8+2+3=13 (the best you could do with one hit). Ties will be broken by the date the final score is reached. That is, if three folks end up with 18 points, the person that got to 18 on the earliest date will be the winner.  My list was PM'd to Bibliogryphon, the first entry I got. The competition will start 1 AUGUST 2019 (all lists must be PM'd by 11:59pm (GMT) July 31) and end 31 July, 2020. If any names die before the contest begins, I will ask for a replacement at that letter. Names at other letters may not be shuffled to accommodate the replacement.  NOTE: Feel free to include a sub for any letter you like, in case you think it's iffy your name may not make the starting gate. Probably a good idea. Example: C - Carter, Jimmy (sub Carter, Rosalynn) Enjoy!

    The Deathlist Cup is overrunning and punters are still round the bookies looking up at the screens to see which team will win. So while everyone is distracted and not paying attention, I'm throwing open the doors of the Deathlist Casino for the Third Annual Poker Tournament! Will Joey Russ attain greatness, or will most of his hits come from his subs bench - again? Who can stop Death Impends making it a total hat trick and take the title for the third year in a row? Just pick 25 names (and a maximum of 5 subs) who will cash in their chips on or before December 31st. There is a new rule to add to the fun! Yes...fun.....!!! The tables are being brushed down, the croupiers are back (on the minimum wage, obviously), the chips are pristine and the packs will be broken open come July 1st. So get your thinking caps on and join the gamblers at the table!

    @Predictor asked a while back who had received the most votes across all the "nth death of 20xx" polls. Well, here's the answer. Brackers is our strongest survivor, and with a bit of luck she could be the GOAT. She's beaten Kirk in under 3 years! 174 poll results went into this. This is the very first one, which Ronnie Biggs won easily. In 2005.

    Good afternoon, ABC poolers! I know I have left you hanging on the possibility of a 3rd year for this pool. I do like running it and I think it is a good format. However, I have a big vacation coming up and I will be out for most of July. My plan was to have it run for 11 months, from Aug 1,2019 until June 30, 2020, thus giving people the whole month of July to submit teams. Now I see that recently Sir Creep has proposed just that exact thing, and he has also volunteered to take over running it. I think I would like that, just being able to play this year. I have a couple of other pools going, so I am starting to find it hard to juggle them all in a timely manner. So if Sir Creep is willing to do it I will hand over the reigns for ABC DP III. I will definitely be submitting a team via PM. My first year team was quite good, but I sure slipped in year 2. Today is the last day for new hits in the current pool. The master standings list for this year is still up to date as far as I know, but there are a lot of names involved so please check your own list and inform me of any mistakes/misses by July 5th for proper credit. I will post final standings after that. Good luck to Sir Creep, who can PM me if you have any questions!!

    A is for August. Sir Creep seems to be the only person around here what doesn’t run a DP, and he has plenty of time ta do! So if’n you want I can oversee this for a year, but no sense in pinching teams last second. Just start 1 August 2019. Same rules etc. I’m not re-inventing the wheel, just getting it upright and rolling. If that works for everyone.... SirC
