    ^^^was waiting to see how long until someone caught that. So all that's left to do is change 84 celebrities' ID codes so they stop appearing out of alphabetical order, and readd team descriptions. And quintuple-check for 2018 deaths that have slipped through. This is the home straight.

    Not gonna lie, I've done little other than sleep, eat, work and handle this site since December 20th. I am very, very ready for a day spent watching "205 Live" and playing Football Manager 2019. I haven't played any FM in six weeks, my computer probably thinks its been sold to someone else.

    Right - Spade's provided me with the top 50. 4 names tied at 50 actually, so as I usually do I used random.org to decide who became a pickable name and who became sub #1. Like last time, I'll wait until the DDP officially opens to reveal the names and open the Inverse.

    My old man is a bit better. He has been shifted to a regular ward, is breathing with nasal cannula only and has even got up from bed to eat some (awful) soup. Still his condition is serious. Sunday night I spent the night in hospital with him, as I did some other day. In his room there were a 93-year old man I did not know and a 104-year old man who is considered a sort of legend here. Around midnight I reckoned the 93-year old guy was not breathing at all and woke up his daughter. The man had passed away, so nurses came to take him to the morgue. They were quite loud so both my father and the 104-year old man woke up. While my father didn't give a damn, the 104 guy was terrorized: he hid his face under the blankets and looked away for all the time, visibly trembling. Maybe he thinks he is so old Death has forgotten him and will live forever, but I assure you I was so astonished by his extreme naivety.

    INVERSE DEAD POOL 2019 As always, with the new year comes another opportunity for you all to reckon which DDP darlings have another 365 days left in their tanks. Though the 2018 Inverse Dead Pool had less deaths among its selectables than 2017 (15 compared to 20), there were still three massive scoreboard-scrambling landmines among them in Stephen Hawking, Aretha Franklin, and Stan Lee. By the year's end, machotrouts emerged the least scathed with 17 points. Rules From the list of the 50 most popular DDP picks of 2019, pick a team of 25 names who you think will survive the year. Rank your list in order of least likely to die to least least 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. NEW: 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.

    Following the official unveiling of the drop 40, the top 50 is up and the Inverse entry period has opened. To close 11:59 GMT on the 18th. Steffan Lewis was part of the original top 50, so his death means the original sub-only name (Donald Trump) is instead selectable as part of the 50. June Brown, the third on the random.org list, becomes the new sub-only name. As for your host's team... Donald Trump Bill Turnbull Dick Van Dyke Paul Gascoigne Queen Elizabeth II Linda Nolan Ruth Bader Ginsburg Jimmy Carter Betty White Billy Connolly John Andretti Prince Philip Marieke Vervoort Doris Day Beth Chapman Michael Robinson Olivia Newton-John Greg Gilbert Olivia de Havilland Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI Henry Kissinger John McCririck Vera Lynn Pete Frates George Alagiah SUB: Carol Channing

    A random stat, there are an incredible 140 teams on the 2019 roster who have now entered the DDP for ten or more years. Two teams, one of them @drunkasaskunk, have been at it for over twenty years. I didn't count, but there are also many, many teams entering for the eighth or ninth time. Very impressive brand loyalty and a level of return business that some websites would kill for.

    Charon is the ferryman of Hades according to Greek myth, so I don't think it's impossible that two individual users have taken inspiration from that when choosing a name for a forum called deathlist.
