    Who says that all of that 80% are dying of pancreatic cancer? Those who had operable tumours etc might very well die of something else in the space of 15 years. For instance, age alone makes RBG unlikely to live that long, regardless of cancer status. No argument here that it's a killer, however.

    Not a good start...

    Ozzy Osbourne

    If Ozzy keeps falling over, he might not be a bad pick for a future year.

    Generally speaking, a hit should mean a score increases by 2 points (the difference between -1 and +1). Before you adjust for other bonuses and penalties, that is. Also, did anyone else leave Terry Jones off partly because they didn't want him to die?

    Inverse Dead Pool 2020

    Sir Creep, The probability of surviving pancreatic cancer at one year from diagnosis is about 20%. https://www.cancerresearchuk.org/about-cancer/pancreatic-cancer/survival Being young doesn't really help the chances, since younger people tend to have more aggressive cancers. Being physically fit does help the chances, but probably not enough. EDIT: In short, I accept your challenge. (I choose the foodbank option, btw).

    At the age of 98, it's very easy for "bedrest" to become "bedridden". The body doesn't have much muscle to lose at that point, so if you lose the core muscle strength to hold yourself sitting up etc, it's very hard to get it back.
  10. Still way too many. The sheer wasted effort that goes into these campaigns...

    One thing I never made a ruling on would be what would happen if someone died before the end of the entry period... hope that headache doesn't happen this time either!
