    UK election. You voted for?

    Too American to vote. I vote for throwaway parties (read: Libertarian) so I noticed over 700,000 votes were for 'other parties' after the top 6 listed. So I'd have prolly voted one of them. SC

    ABC Deadpool III

    Better late than never. I have for whatever reason agreed to the impossible task of taking over the ABC Deadpool from the masterful oversight by Wormfarmer. So for one last moment let's give him a big And since we are looking back to ABC Deadpool II, a huge congratulations to the champ, RadGuy. Our scoring system will remain intact, word for word, so the 55-point standard set by RadGuy is your target. So let's get this party started! 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 me by PM or a post on this thread. As Wormfarmer stated, this applies 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 1939 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.  My list was PM'd to Bibliogryphon, the first entry I got. The competition will start 1 AUGUST 2019 (all lists must be PM'd by 11:59pm (GMT) July 31) and end 31 July, 2020. If any names die before the contest begins, I will ask for a replacement at that letter. Names at other letters may not be shuffled to accommodate the replacement.  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!

    Boxing Clever?

    I used to go to a ghetto pub owned by Leon Spinks on Grand River Ave in the D. Circa 1989. He was there ance or twice. This means if I did drugs I woulda did them in the same bathroom stall as Leon Spinks.

  13. What happened to this thread's tag line about 'where we come to fight with other members'... @Wee Jum I looked up your 2019 Sunday Times article Best Places to Live in Scotland - not one mention of the Highlands, and they can bloody stuff anything below it. So wherever you live (Dundee I guess bwa ha ha pfft) is Pyrrhic victory when anything north of Glencoe is eliminated. SirC

    According to Wiki. And THAT is according to... ? Whoever the unknown Jase19348 is (see below). I was unaware that 'personal knowledge' is a basis for editing Wiki. So far Google says it's bullshit. Sir Creep isn't saying one way or another, he's just saying nothing on Google three days hence, and some person says 'personal knowledge' to do a Wiki edit.

    Daylight Savings Deadpool

    So today is Daylight Savings Time in the USA (95% of it), and we all fall back an hour. Let's celebrate this ridiculous patronage to the cycle of the sun-and-moon with a quick and dirty deadpool! For this year, DST: Begins 3 November 2019 Ends 8 March 2020 Rules couldn't be simpler. I want 4 names (representing the slightly more than four months of DST) that you personally have already used in any deadpool this year [PRIOR TO AUGUST 1] (including DDP or alt obits, which are off-site / also includes any SUBS you listed anywhere). A deadpool means a deadpool, not one of our fun games like guessing which oldest world leader will die (I'm posting this now, cuz there's always someone....) That's it. Winning: First to clear the board wins. Game ends on 8 March 2020 though. So most hits wins. Tie-breakers: 1. Designate a Joker. If your joker dies first in time before anyone you are tied with, you win. 2. If two or more teams somehow have miraculously had Jokers die on the same day, we will look at the 2nd person to die, first in time wins. And so on. If no Jokers are involved we look to first person who died, first in time wins, and so on. 3, QO: Let's say that the name is subject to the deadpool from which you extracted it, obviously using the least restrictive should they be found in more than one. To that end, if you would be so kind as to say the name of the DP you found the name from, save us all some time. Much thanks. *For example: President Jimmy Carter (Death By Numbers) Koppish? I see no reason to PM, seeing as there are only 24 or so hours to get this rolling. So just post when you want. If you PM me though, I will post for you after I make a lovely compiled list. It being the weekend, let's give everyone till 11:59pm GMT, 3 Nov 2019. So really launching on 4 Nov for the sake of argument. Next year we will have our act together. Hopefully we have a dozen or so entries.

So we can see at quick glance who wins any tie-breaker. Jokers will have their own separate numbering system as they trump everything else. IOW if your Joker dies first, you own the tie-breaker against everyone. SC

    Your honesty gains 2 points. Well if it was up to me. Unfortunately others get all upset so I'll deduct the points. (it's been done on scoreboard above, you've 32 now)
