    You’re seriously going to repost that entire goddamn list each time one person dies? You must stare at your naked self in the mirror all day. Maybe send photos to the 4 LIKES you got who think that’s a good idea. SC

    ABC Deadpool IV

    Deathlist’s only Deadpool with an August launch returns. Yes, your host took a wee sabbatical, but is here to process teams and keep this afloat. Expect a rocky start, as he is traveling for precisely 14 days (a-hem) and that will drag a few days into August. But launch this Deadpool he shall! (If you’ve a wishing well, rabbit’s foot, or salt over the shoulder, we suggest you use it). Sir Creep will send his team to a trusted third party DLer (bwa ha ha Lordy..... well ok ‘another’ DLer) on July 24, or one week prior to the start of this year’s ABC DP. You can send a team in at any time prior if you like but SirC will not open your post until he has sent his team in. He will try to get things organised by Aug 1 but if there’s a delay, it’s as aforementioned. If scores have scored, said scoring will be scored.  As we did for ABC III (and likely going forward), the rules and scoring remain intact, unchanged, unaltered, and without manipulation, word for word. So no surprises. The rules: Submit a list of 26 soon-to-croak people to me via PM. The first name or last name of the first person must begin with an A. Second person with a B. You get the idea. This game doesn't require you to choose a joker. Qualifying names will be those getting an obit by sources used by the Windy City Deadpool, also found on its own thread at this site. That pool, in turn, uses the obit sources of the Derby Dead Pool, but adds The Independent; US sources New York Times, LA Times, CBS News, Fox News, TMZ, and MSN. Also acceptable are CNN, and the Associated Press as legit obit sources.  Plus the following International news sources: http://www.cbc.ca/ https://www.theaustralian.com.au/ http://www.heraldscotland.com/ https://www.univision.com/ There will be at least 250 names, probably approaching 300. Please police your own obits and notify Sir Creep by PM or a post on this thread, particularly to European obit sources. SCORING: A hit using the first name (all letters except as below) - 1 point A hit using the last name (all letters except as below) - 2 points A hit with the first name . . . (A, E, I, O, U, Y) - 2 points A hit with the last name . . . (A, E, I, O, U, Y) - 3 points A hit with the first OR last name . . . (Q, X, Z) - 4 points A hit with an alliterative name scores the points for both first and last names as specified above (so an alliterative at the A spot would be worth 5 points, the B spot would be worth 3 points, the Q spot would be worth 8 points) BONUS POINTS: Person was born in the year 1940 or later - 2 points Solos = 3 points Duos = 1 point All Vowel Bonus - hit all five vowels (A, E, I, O, U) using LAST names = 5 points / hit any four vowels using last names + the letter Y = 4 points Example: if someone gets a solo hit with Zadora Zephyr, who was born in 1940 (assuming 10+ entries), the score would be 8+2+3=13 (the best you could do with one hit). Ties will be broken by the date the final score is reached. That is, if three folks end up with 18 points, the person that got to 18 on the earliest date will be the winner.  The competition will start 1 AUGUST 2020 (all lists must be PM'd by 11:59pm (GMT) July 31) and end 31 July, 2021. NAMES: If any names die before the contest begins, we will ask for a replacement at that letter. Names at other letters may not be shuffled to accommodate the replacement.  Also, if a person’s name has been accepted in one form, that will be the only form we will accept it (e.g. Little Richard, Prince Philip). Any name that has been previously accepted in any of the prior ABC Deadpools is deemed valid. If the host says someone on your list doesn’t meet his tepid ‘fame’ threshold, you’ll need to supply another name. Again, names may not be shuffled. NOTE: Feel free to include a sub for any letter you like, in case you think it's iffy your name may not make the starting gate. Probably a good idea. Example: C - Carter, Jimmy (sub Carter, Rosalynn) Enjoy!

    Square Pegs was a slightly underrated show, but notable in that the theme song iirc was by The Waitresses, and sounded typical of their oeuvre. SC

    American Football Players

    Jamal Powell, a former TCU offensive lineman and SMU assistant coach passed away on Tuesday, according to a statement from both college football programs. He was just 39 years old. Powell was just four days away from his 40th birthday. He had been diagnosed with incurable cancer and Guillain-Barre Syndrome. SCo
  13. Let's lump all these folks into one thread. Not all of them are past NFL players, though a chunk of them are (Steve Gleason, Tim Shaw, OJ Brigance, etc). Lest we forget the Pete Frates of the world, Jason Becker or even Stephen Hawking (though he's covered plenty elsewhere), or the late Sam Shepard. Not every affliction needs it's own thread, but this one is pretty well-defined and the progression easy enough to follow. And with that, a Tim Shaw update. He looks good enough, not even in a wheelchair at this point, so I think we can give him a pass to 2019 before we need to check in on him. SC

    Doctor Doctor

    Seems we should have a thread for renowned physicians, nurses and the like. Quentin Young, a Chicago physician renowned for his passionate advocacy for equality in health care — and whose patients included Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Studs Terkel, and former mayor Harold Washington — has died. The retired 92-year-old internist for many years ran a private practice in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood, where a young Barack Obama was a patient in the 1990s. The doctor and future president became close, a relationship that evolved into discussions about health care policy, and a shared interest in reform. SC

    Covid passports

    Since your Eurojabs can’t be trusted as the least bit efficacious, unlike American ones, until you get your shit together this discussion is moot. I’m fine with the passport idea. I’m also fine with my country refusing to recognise your vaccine as anything other than a placebo, and demanding you intruders pay for OUR jabs thus beefing up our phat American economy and keeping your ‘strains’ - that we never seem to get here - the fuck outta this country.

    The remains of a Kentucky sailor killed during the Pearl Harbor attack nearly 80 years ago have been identified, officials said. Navy Seaman 2nd Class Howard S. Magers, 18, was accounted for on Dec. 17, the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency announced.. SC

    British TV presenter and equestrian Luisa Zissman is keeping her late horse with her in more than spirit. Zissman shared on Instagram Tuesday that she previously had to put down her horse Madrono due to cancer — but the beloved animal will now be with her indefinitely after she had him preserved by a taxidermist.

    Beauty Queens

    The winner of Sri Lanka's biggest beauty prize has suffered head injuries after a brawl broke out on stage. Beauty queen Pushpika De Silva won the "Mrs Sri Lanka" title at a ceremony on national TV on Sunday. Moments later, the 2019 winner seized Mrs De Silva's crown, claiming she could not be awarded the title because she was divorced. Etc etc. SC

    Having not long ago lost a former Miss Valenzuela who was homeless for 15 years, and now a former Miss Nigeria, let's give them a heavenly pageant to reunite. Former Miss Nigeria and sister to famous actor Hank Anuku, Rita Anuku, has died. Rita, who won the Miss Nigeria pageant in 1986, died yesterday July 2nd in a hospital in Abuja after a battle with cancer. The mother of four was just 47 years old.

    Things To Do While Waiting For Death

    Complain to your family about how awful the finale of the TV series The Office was, only to have it fall on deaf ears. Endings can be disappointing. Just ask the boys’ family.
