    Already threads to discuss 2021. Not so sure "2021 is a better year" is significant enough for a standalone thread.

    Right, there is under 96 hours to submit a team for the cup, and currently this is how the submitted cup teams look like for round 2: The Old Crem or YorkshireBanker vs Sir Creep Grobler vs msc Djemba Djemba or JoeMoneyPenny vs alt obits guy Theoldlady vs deadsox Perhaps vs ThereWillBeDeaths7 or GuyFromFuture Book vs An Fear Beag Markb4 or Charles De Gaulle vs maryportfuncity Quim Reaper vs Wormfarmer HDS vs Clorox Bleachman DeathByArsenic vs Joey Russ DevonDeathTrip vs Annami Gcreptile vs Baby Blue or CalebH BuffaloPhil or nantonian2013 vs CaptainChorizo Banana vs GreatUncleBulgaria or Gooseberry Crumble Spade_Cooley vs Grim Up North Bibliogryphon vs EtushIsPushingUpTheDaisies Yes, one round will actually go as planned for round 2 so far. Also while a bunch of teams obviously are waiting for last minute hopefully this time we don’t have to deal with the do not submit teams like we did last time. Including one fucking twat that’s permanently gone now. Anyways, get your teams in the next few days...

    Time for another update I reckon. A few popular hits to liven up the scoreboard a little, with Rush Limbaugh (16 picks including 2 WC), Carlos Menem (6 hits) and surprisingly Lawrence Ferlinghetti (5 picks) all picked by multiple teams. Carlos Menem 14th February S. Prestley Blake 14th February Rush Limbaugh 17th February Lawrence Ferlinghetti 22nd February Raymond Cauchetier 22nd February The Quim Reaper leaps to the top of the leaderboard with 3 hits since the last update for a total of 6 hits and 250 points. Not where you want to be approaching the end of February. Elsewhere Markb4 starts his race with a Limbaugh hit, leaving 7 players still warming up at the start line.

    In the interests of balance, an Indian great today... former wicketkeeper batsman Farokh Engineer is 83 today. He played 46 tests for India, scoring 2 centuries, taking 66 catches, and completing 16 stumpings over a 14-year test career. He played for Lancashire in county cricket, where he continued to rside after his retirment.

    Babes In Toyland were big in alternative and indie circles in the early/mid 90s and toured extensively in the UK. I expect Kat will get an obit in somewhere like The Guardian, especially due to her links to Courtney Love (who famously nicked her style).

    Ronald Pickup, put down. eta. He first entered the 'Rons' team in 2016, thus this was his 6th and final appearance; he was a unique pick every year.

    I just came here after having the same thought. I've not heard of any more news, and it doesn't look like there's been any other visitors, so... who knows.

    I once broke in on the roof of an abandoned swimming pool. On the top there was an airduct. I was also as drunk as ive ever been. I sat at the hole and thought about standing in there, it seemed like a good idea. Luckily my friend stopped me last minute. Theres a picture of me sitting there although I don’t have it. We broke into the pool after and saw the vent, it mustve been 10-15 meters down. So that wouldve been dangerous to say the least, let alone getting me. After that we got back on the roof again and the roof was really big and round, so when I started walking down I got extra speed, I ended up running and jumping from the roofside which was at least 3 meters. I landed in the bushes, later I saw that the groumd was actually littered with nails, which were standing up. My heel ended up hurting for a good month or two, but that was all. I was around 21. Edit: got the picture, it's below

    Another January 1920 born dead. Obviously only Western ones, Trevor Dannatt and him in quick succession. I expect Gottfried Bohm to be the next one. Out of them only David Musuguri, Charles Njonjo, Henry Hu will be left. Stefan Zywotko survived COVID in December, but that weakened him a lot. Theodore Geballe seems just a random guy.

    She'll absolutely walk a QO. For someone of my age (mid-late 30s) BIT were always a band you heard more about than you actually heard, but they were always mentioned, and mentioned early, whenever anyone talked about riot grrrl music.
