    The death of Yasuhiro Nakasone gave four teams a 2-point Y (bonus point) hit, while theoldlady would also get 2 points for using his N surname. Banana climbs back on top of our leader board in a deadpool where the excitement never ends! EDIT: So as noted above, Juliette Kaplan left the game and we didn't honour her points. So let's do! Sean and Toast get 3 points for a J hit (plus barely grabbing the 1939 bonus!); Clorox and CptChorizo 4 points for her K surname. Scoreboard - 28 Nov 2019 Banana - 34 JiroemonKimura - 33 RadGuy - 28 theoldlady - 27 Clorox Bleachman - 27 CaptainChorizo - 27 Joey Russ - 24 msc - 24 Sir Creep - 23 Death Impends - 21 Book - 20 Etushispushingupdasies - 14 Toast - 14 Wormfarmer - 13 The Old Crem - 12 YorkshireBanker - 12 gcreptile - 11 Philip - 11 Skinny kiltrunner - 10 Sean - 10 Torva Messor - 10 Great Uncle Bulgaria - 8 YoungWillz - 7 Bibliogryphon - 5 DeathByArsenic - 3 Yvonne - 0

    Our entry total is up to 9. So far all the entries are folk who submitted a list last year. I know a lot of people who are waiting till nearer the new year to submit their list, but please. If you have never submitted a crowdsourced entry before, or if you have submitted in the past but didn’t send one to me last year, please consider sending a list this time around. The more people who participate, the better.

    Hello Everyone, as the 2019 season is coming to a close and two contestants are trying to have that lucky shot at the end of the current competition, let us take a look forward and announce the 2020 version of the Death By Numbers deadpool. Initially designed by Shaun of the Dead / Sean, then hosted by RadGuy / Phantom of the Midway, then taken over by me, this is where you can all the names you didn't quite have the space for in your other teams - because this is where you have to enter 50 names for a complete team. The general rules: Send me 50 main team names by pm or just post them in this thread, if you want, from Dec 1st until Dec 31st 2019, 23:59 GMT. You can choose one joker with double points - and you can also submit up to five substitutes in case one of your 50 dies before the end of the submission window. You may also choose new subs before the game starts if they die. Submission form: A little change from last year - just give them in the normal "First name", "Last name" format You don't need to number them before! No birthdays anymore! And only note their claim to fame if there might be confusion, for example: Kamala Harris (wrestler) Kamala Harris (US senator) My intent is to be able to just enter the submission into excel and connect them with my database. The rest should follow. The scoring is [year of birth] - 1900 = score. So someone born in 2001 will get 101 points in case of death You may submit the following people: living, not having set a precise date of death (by execution, dignitas, or whatever), at least 18 years old on the beginning of January 1st, 2020, and being somewhat notable. "Somewhat notable" means: they should at least be notable for something else aside from being terminally ill. "Something else" being something that has an effect on society. Terminally ill activists are okay if they've done at least something generally beneficial, a campaign, a book, a court case, or fundraising that might affect other people. If they're only in the news because of their tragedy or because they need our sympathy I will not accept them. So no "cancer mums with cancer kids", no "terminally ill fans", no "ordinary person in a coma because of a car crash". This also counts for brothers/sisters/children of notable people - unless they are so notable that every relative is also notable by default, like the House of Windsor, or maybe the Bush family. Unfortunately, it is me who will decide if the person is famous enough. Previous BBC coverage in whatever form will convince me. Just as an example: Criscilla Anderson - no! Jose Santa Cruz - no! Litsa Menounos - no! Roberta McCain - okay - she has a WIkipedia page, too. Small addition: "Oldest Person of XYZ" will always be allowed - even a completely irrelevant person (in the grand scheme of things) will be accepted if they are the oldest person of their country, or last survivor of World War II, Korean War, etc... Usually those people do not give many points, but maybe 5 pts is better than zero? Anyway, I will allow them. Substitution phase: On the 1st of July 2020 GMT you may switch 5 old people for 5 new ones for whom all the above rules also apply. When is a hit a hit: If the person permanently dies in 2020 (GMT!) and their death gets noticed in written form by qualifying media outlets within 2020 or the first seven days of 2021. The qualifying media outlets, i.e. QO rules are as such: Everything accepted by the Derby Dead Pool 2020 plus The New York Times. Your host: I will also submit a team and will do so two posts below by December 15th at latest and hide the names with "XXXXX XXXXX" and reveal them on January 1st. I will submit a bit later than last year, but then I want to avoid last year's situation, where I ran out of subs and then filled the gaps with "new" names, especially Edmund Capon, who revealed his illness mid-December. So I hope I will not run out of subs if I submit a little later. As a change over last year, I will also make use of the substitution window, but only use 2 names. After all, there's always a pretty broad consensus of a couple of names (this year: Ivan Milat, Michael Sleggs, Tom Long), so I wouldn't steal anyone's names by picking those who are universally known anyway. Also, I will substitute on the 30th of June, so you can see my two names. I will not read your submission emails until January 1st (I think you can check that) to prevent the impression that I might take a name from your posts for other deadpools. This also means that I might discuss borderline acceptable picks with you on January 1st or 2nd. We will have to talk then. If you're unavailable I will replace an unqualifying name with one of your substitutions. If you post your team right in this thread, you save me some work but also give away names. If you pm me, please make sure that I know what the mail is about in the header "Death By Numbers", "Team submission" or something like that. If you have other questions, you can also ask in this thread!

    Seems so! The "skull and bones" don't lie. And she isn't the ONLY transgender female. Think: Beyonce, Cher, Miley Cyrus, Cardi B, Taylor Swift, etc, etc. Not sure, just go on YouTube and plug in the word "Transvestigation" and the name of the singer, actor, sports figure (like Tom Brady), politician or ANY celebrity name you aren't sure of, and there's probably one or many videos identifying that person as a transgender. It's all part of a larger "Transgender Agenda" and it's been going on for CENTURIES! Y'know what (Queen) Victoria's Secret is? She was a HE. That's how the store got its name. It's the Satanic cult of Baphomet. Nearly EVERY person every featured on the cover of Vogue is a man. Greta Thunberg? A boy, but even more than that.....do a bit of research, and you'll know what I mean...<wink> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hi2cVZDOE9s&amp;list=PLGlA2PSyDcbtrKOZz6J6sMpPHJl4nZe70&amp;index=159&amp;t=0s

    Don't hold your breath for Barbara Windsor. This is her from this September. That is not a lady who is going to die from her dementia next year. Given that level of physical ability, another decade is quite possible. Of course, something else could get her, but it won't be dementia.

    REPORT OF CLIVE JAMES'S DEATH...* 15/50 24th November 2019 Well known Australian critic, broadcaster, and dead pool teaser Clive James has finally succumbed to a nearly decade long cancer battle in order to make the list have the second best score to date. He began his career as a literary critic before he joined The Observer in 1972, where he became known for his wry, deadpan humor. Since then, he was able to do lots of things that lead him to higher status: from writing poetry to presenting on BBC radio, to hosting his own show on ITV called Clive James on Television, his impact on the UK was undeniable. He even once quipped that Arnold Schwarzenegger in his body building days looked like "a brown condom full of walnuts." As for his political views, he was identified as a social democrat, although his views on the Iraq War were quite strange for a social democrat, among other things. He's perhaps best known for his time as a dead pooling tease. Perhaps no name has stayed on the minds of dead pooling folk as long as Clive did, as he was fighting cancer since 2011 and was close to death so many times before. However, the will he won't he speculation finally ended as he died from the cancer at the age of 80. This was his fourth year on the list, jumping up all the way to the 8th spot. * I'm well aware this is the same photo as the Deathlist's photo, but I like it a lot so I'm shamelessly stealing it.

    Ah yes, I can see why OSCAR NOMINATED actor Sir Ian Holm with big roles in several of the biggest films of the last 50 years (Alien, the Lord of the fucking Rings trilogy, Chariots of Fire, Madness of King George, several Brannagh Shakespeares, The Hobbit, The Aviator, The Day after fucking Tomorrow, to name a few) wouldnt be A list. Not to mention Brazil (a bigger hit now than on release) or the Fifth Element (fucking massive at the time).

    I have been a (former) regular poster here since 2008. I have not created any new thread here in over a year and am now making one for someone with medical problems and enough fame (in my perspective). If you have issues with the mass-posters here, don't fucking take it out on me when i post a thread once a year.
