    Had a diagnosis of Cancer at the back of my tongue last October, and was told it was big, I left it too long, and recovery was nowhere near a given. So had all remaining teeth removed to remove risk of infection during treatment, six weeks of daily radiotherapy, 4 chemo cycles, 18 days on and off in hospital when stomach packed up, and brain frying was at its worst. I had my 3 month scan after treatment finish, and DONE IT !! BEAT THE FUCKER !! CANCER FREE. Right choice not playing Deathlist cup because of it, as I was away with the fairies end of February...hang on who am I kidding I would have got that far !!!! Anyways, need op to have my jaw sorted out after tooth op issues, and replacement teeth at some stage when covid buggers off, cant eat a lot of foods, cant drink alcohol cos it hurts mouth too much, got little taste or smell and a load of other things not right yet. but hell, I can deal with all that shit. Anyone else got some positive stories about themselves or families, Covid recoveries etc, please add them. Forum topic in an Inverse Stylee.

    Yes, deadpoolers, it’s that time of year again. Even in a world without the Queen, Gorbachev, and an old lady who danced with Obama, the Derby Dead Pool remains everpresent ahead of its 28th year running. After three Decembers of entering 500+ teams, @Grim Up North is retiring from his team entry duties and passing the baton to @Banana. @gcreptile and I retain our committee positions for the upcoming year. Libby and Gorby had 24 verified DDP appearances - now only Keith Richards and Holly Johnson are in contention for a 25th next year THE RULES (which also contain instructions on submitting a team) remain the same as before. Emails should be going out later tonight. IMPORTANT REMINDER: The spreadsheet method of entry that began in 2021 remains in service. The 2023 spreadsheet, identical to the 2022 one in all but filename, can be found here. It is heavily recommended to use the spreadsheet as means of entry to reduce Banana's workload as much as possible. If you are absolutely unable to work with the Excel spreadsheet, still make sure to recheck GUN's DDP entry guide thread from 2020 to make the formatting of your email as smooth as possible.

    Front page is up Yep, we know about the various anomalies in the text that can be fixed in a quiet week in March. The team descriptions will be updated, the names all standardised (though those with a capital surname were last picked in 2017!), and so on. Oh and if it says on the List of Teams your email doesn't work, ignore that... Obviously the LOTL and LOTM pages revert to 2019 because there isn't officially any yet. (Well, there are for the Missed but let's let Reptile sleep for a bit...) All up to date bar Samantha Last who will be in the next update. All thats left for now is to thank Grim for all the data processing over the Christmas holidays, Spade Cooley for hanging around and Agony Uncle-ing every single issue possible, and the man Reptile who sat for 4 days and worked through every single bug and fixed them. Legends, all of them.

    I can't speak for everyone else, but I shall share my own reasoning. As a American. 1. I gave a 'shocked' face, as it doesn't really trigger any other emotion from me. I am just surprised it happened. 2. Don Young was the current Dean of the U.S House. The man has had the same job since the 70's. 3. Young was planning to run for re-election. Previously stating something to effect of, 'He will run till he loses or dies'. 4. This throws Alaskan politics into a whirlwind, and as someone who follows politics closely, it will be interesting. 5. Despite being 88, he reportedly died randomly on an airplane. No health issues that I've been made aware of. 6. As a sitting Congress member, his death would be notable in any given year. In the currently razor-thin divided House, this may have a major impact. Lastly, just because someone is not mentioned on this site....does not mean they don't have significance. Either from a world-wide perspective, national perspective, or even individual perspective. Stop being an ASS for no reason. You cunt.

    INVERSE DEAD POOL 2020 Another new year arrives, and with that comes another round of reckoning the lingering prowess of the DDP's most popular selections. Of the 16 expiries throughout 2019, drol only selected 3 and notched his second win in the process. Rules From the list of the 50 most popular DDP picks of 2020, pick a team of 25 names who you think will survive the year. Rank your list in order of least likely to die to most likely to die. Post your team in this thread. If someone dies and they are listed on your team, then you will receive points according to their position. If your #1 pick dies you'll receive 25 points, whilst if your #25 pick dies you'll receive 1 point. If someone dies and they are not on your list, then you receive no points. In case one of the names available for entry dies before the submission deadline, you are allowed to have one sub. The sub can be anyone from the top 50 or the 51st most popular name, who will be revealed alongside the top 50. The 51st name can not be part of the original 25 if no one dies. In the case of one of your original team dying pre-deadline, the sub goes into 25th place by default, but if the sub was previously the 51st, you are allowed to change the position of the new pick. If the above scenario happens, you are also allowed to name a new sub and I will reveal the 52nd most popular name. Whoever has the lowest score at the end of the year is the winner. If two or more teams are tied at the end of the year, the tie will first be decided by who has less hits. If they have an equal amount of hits, then whoever among the teams died latest in the year, and thus came closest to being a correct prediction, will decide the winner. If said name was on multiple teams in the tie, whoever had said name lowest will win. If multiple teams had said name in the same position, the second most recently-deceased name will be referred to, and so on, until a winner is found. If, by some alignment of the stars, the tie is of either no hits or of all of the exact same hits in the exact same positions, all teams in the tie share victory. Credit to Toast for inadvertently coming up with a peach of a topic description, and of course, credit to Spade for creating this wonderful game. Credit to Dead Cow for his job as previous host, laying the framework for the Inverse Dead Pool's OP, and the idea for a "dies during entry period" rule. Credit to machotrouts for the suggestion of the latest hits factoring into tiebreakers. Previous Winners 2019 - drol 2018 - machotrouts 2017 - drol 2016 - Pedro67 2015 - Death Impends 2014 - Bibliogryphon 2013 - N/A 2012 - Esturian Float 2011 - Garn2 Top 50 George Alagiah John Andretti Frankie Banali Bob Barker Susan Bayh Pope Benedict XVI June Brown Jimmy Carter Billy Connolly Olivia de Havilland Bob Dole Chris Doleman Kirk Douglas Queen Elizabeth II Paul Gascoigne Jill Gascoine Greg Gilbert Ruth Bader Ginsburg Mikhail Gorbachev Jimmy Greaves David Gulpilil Rolf Harris Terry Jones Lee Kerslake Henry Kissinger Angela Lansbury John Lewis Vera Lynn Stirling Moss Olivia Newton-John Linda Nolan Genesis P-Orridge Prince Philip Leslie Phillips Little Richard Michael Robinson Yoo Sang-Chul Prunella Scales Tom Smith Pat Smullen Leon Spinks Nobby Stiles Alex Trebek Jean-Louis Trintignant Bill Turnbull Dick Van Dyke Gianluca Vialli Doddie Weir Betty White Barbara Windsor #51 Sam Lloyd

    I've usually done this by now, but first thoughts: Kirk Douglas - Boring top pick. May or may not die. Herman Wouk - Somehow still alive. Olivia de Havilland - Healthiest centenarian the list has ever seen? Prince Philip - On the downward slope, but slowly imo. Leah Bracknell - Terminal lung cancer is terminal lung cancer, I think she'll be gone this year. Vera Lynn - Quieter than she used to be, could be one of the obligatory "random old folk on the list for year who die". Robert Mugabe - Hospital for several months last year, time is nearly up. Jimmy Carter - Should beat Bush's record, but reaching the Expiry Date for former Presidents and cancer survivor. Doris Day - She got hit by a train over 80 years ago, and still breathes. Will take a lot to take down Doris Pierre Cardin - Just really old? Bob Dole - Looked like fucking shite at Bush's funeral, has to be a good bet for 2019. Henry Kissinger - 96 must be close to 200 for his weight. Didn't similar heavy built Al Molinaro go at 96? Hmm. Jerry Stiller - No idea about his health. Interesting newcomer. Javier Perez de Cuellar - Zzzzzzzz. Death hoax in late 2018, maybe he's doing a Bill Pertwee. Bob Barker - Lots of hooha about him on here end of last year. Think hes on mend though. Murray Walker - Old, still chats apparently, smashed cancer to bits in his 90s - surely a few laps left in his tank. Akihito - Frail for years, surprisingly still around. Betty White - Looked frailer last year but not to the point I'd get worried. Gordon Banks - DL Cmme loves old footballers, clearly. Has Banks been quieter than usual of late or did I tune out all the Engerlund stuff last summer? Hosni Mubarak - Not convinced he's close to the end. June Brown - Clearly going downhill on Eastenders. Not got too long left. Stirling Moss - Shocked he made it this far. OoO says wont see 90, I believe him. Bob Hawke - Says he wont see May, hospital in and out in 2018, and his wife was crying talking on TV about his health few days ago. Think his goose is cooked. Alan Greenspan - Really old, and random death hoax last year. Jacques Chirac - Increasingly frail, likely a top pick. Dick van Dyke - Super healthy? Trying to do a repeat Aznavour imo. Nobby Stiles - Great pick. Barbara Walters - Quiet and demented, sleeper smart pick. Honor Blackman - Very old. Guessing Cmme has Avengers fans. Harry Belafonte - Good pick, A lister looking old. Desmond Tutu - In and out of hospital, in and out of the list d'Estaing - Just old Ed Asner - This years surprise comeback. Vanessa Redgrave - COPD so time limited but looked OK in recent public. Jimmy Greaves - Looks like shit, cant have long left. Sidney Poitier - About time this frail permanent A lister got on the list. Valerie Harper - Quiet dying? Quiet putting feet up and chilling? Who knows. Cleo Laine - Dunno much about this pick. Loretta Lynn - In lot of ill health, likely a big pick in 2019. Gorbachev - Finally! Frail, increasingly poorly, might be here in nick of time. Tony Britton - Really old actor. Thought his window of opportunity had long passed! John McCririck - Looks fucked tbh Clive James - Looked fucked tbh. Didn't I say that in every year since 2011? Prunella Scales - Rallied enough to do another TV series. Gone mentally, OK physically, could go downhill rapidly within 12 months though. Think Timothy might got within 6 months of her tbh. Little Richard - frail A-lister with health issues, good pick. Larry King - Just old? Tina Turner - Seems to be on the mend from rotten health. Shane McGowan - Fuck yer Gazza and Mark E Smiths, this is the one that'll gut me if he goes. Getting married suddenly end of 2018 after 30-40 years cohabiting is a huge warning bell. Ginger Baker - How is he still alive? COPD, for yonks. Johnny Clegg - He got pancreatic cancer in 2015, got remission, it came back, so he got the full Whipple Surgery in 2017, only for his pancreatic cancer to come back when he no longer had most of his pancreas etc and spread to his lungs. You don't need me or A Google Dr to tell you he is fucked. So saying that, and adding 2 to the score for the inevitable long time oldies who just don't wake up one morning, I think a reasonable target for this list is 16. In fact, IF enough of the long termers go in 2019, the record might be under threat. There's enough ill, frail and generally ancient picks to go around.

    A Mugabe joke: A Robert Mugabe joke - Dead Pig Robert Mugabe and his chauffeur were rolling down the highway when suddenly they hit a pig crossing the road. They killed it instantly. Mugabe tells his driver: "Go to da farm over dere and hexplain to da honer of da pig what happen." One hour later, Robert sees his driver coming back from the farm, his clothes all wrinkled, a bottle of wine in one hand and a cigar in the other. "What happen to you?" Robert asks. "Well, the farmer gave me a bottle of wine, his wife, the cigar and their 19 year old daughter made wild passionate love to me." "My God! What did you tell dem?" asked Mugabe. The driver answered: "Good evening, I am Robert Mugabe's chauffeur and I have just killed the pig."
