    So the Cmme are very slowly discussing the 2021 Derby Dead Pool as the covid/life/work balance has led to things being busy in August. When we have more time (hah), the plan is to look up the Qualifying Obits and see what can qualify under the ethos of the game, especially now that FFBI picks are barred. Yes, we'll even take some of Willz's ideas under consideration, old chap. One thing I can announce as a sort of "this is what's been looked at" thing as it's been unanimously agreed. Do you know what the biggest topic we get replies on is? It's not the theme team, or FFBI picks, or even "you missed my obscure pick"... It's "Why doesn't the Independent count as an obit anymore? Can you bring back the Independent as a QO? Please bring back the Independent! I scored, I scored, oh, you don't count the Independent anymore.... (the latter being quite pitiful as its usually someone hoping to get their one hit of the year)." By an overwhelming majority, the replies I get for the DDP have concerned the axing of the Independent when it became a digital only news source. And so, with the general belief that the Cmme should be stewards for the gameplayers... we have decided to acquiesce to the mass appeal. The Independent - independent(dot)co(dot)uk - will be an acceptable Derby Dead Pool qualifying source once more from 1/1/2021. The rest of the news will follow when it's agreed, in September/October. As you were...

    I've just achieved my target of walking (or sometimes even jogging, when no one is watching) 1,500km in 100 days. Now I'm going to have a bacon sandwich.

    After a terribly busy week, and a few days before a week-long holiday of mine, I could finally update again. With Brett Hutchinson's/Sinclair's belated QO, April gets to 30 hits, i.e. one per day. I might get another update on Monday in. But after that, things have to wait for about 8 days.

    Ah good. Back on track are we? Just thought I'd mention it's my birthday today and, assuming the government don't fuck about with the numbers, I'll be getting my pension in 4 years. Roll on 2024.

    Alright, no update in almost a month.... and between work and holiday I lost track of who's new, and what's the narrative. So a sober update - if I missed something, let me know. New Hits: Frankie Banali, Sumner Redstone, Bullet Bob Armstrong, Christopher Guy Harrison, Dale Hawerchuk (Jiroemon Kimura with the latter two!), Kamala the wrestler and frequent pick John Hume. It gives us the following new scoreboard: Rank Team Score 1 Death Impends 1087 2 msc 921 3 Joey Russ 901 4 gcreptile 866 5 Banana 853 6 Cpt.

    90% of Scottish Wikipedia has been written by a 13-year-old furry from North Carolina who doesn't actually speak any Scottish, thinks it's just English written in a Groundskeeper Willie accent.
