  1. Does anyone else find it weird how elderly US politicians have got all of a sudden? Even more so than the obese 73 year old in the White House, there's also the 78 year old Bernie Sanders (with his recent heart attack), the 77 year old Michael Bloomberg, and the 76 year old Joe Biden in the running to oppose him. If any one of these four individuals (including Trump) gets elected next year, they'll be the oldest US president at the time of election in history [the relatively spry 70-year-old Elizabeth Warren falls a little shy of this mark, however; Reagan was 73 when he was reelected].
  2. I wonder if he may be angling for a VP position...

    Donald J Trump

    Trump accuses Clinton of deliberately losing election so that he could be impeached: https://www.newyorker.com/humor/borowitz-report/trump-accuses-clinton-of-deliberately-losing-election?utm_social-type=owned&utm_brand=tny&mbid=social_facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&fbclid=IwAR1nM0drqpiS7uuWDNemfDcnvVk5yZOwIbWtlMEUjJPxWKc_1JucqMV5Rxk (Yes, I know it's a South African tyre / greek mythological creature / seated anger)

    Inverse Dead Pool 2019

    My highest hit so far. In hindsight, I've no idea why I put her where I did. Almost certainly I'll be out of the top 10 now.

    The 12th death of 2019

    Kirk Douglas. Although we're getting close to "no more for the year" being the sensible choice imho.

    The EU Referendum Hokey Cokey

    Agreed. Even if the house pass something, there will still be many years ahead of hammering out trade deals etc, plus Leavers and Remainers will continue to blame each other for many further years about things being generally shitty in the aftermath of severing this many ties with half of our allies and all of our neighbours. Literally the only voter I know who'll have got what they wanted post Brexit ref was one guy who voted Leave specifically to fuck the UK over. And of course there'll be a rejoin campaign. Although personally I'm more tempted just to get out of the UK (even though Brexit makes that a little more challenging).

    Inverse Dead Pool 2019

    You've actually had 3 hits (John McCririck in position 24 gets you a further 2 points, on top of the 16 for position 10 and the 12 for position 14).

    I'm pretty sure that Drol's got this in the bag now.

    As Leah leaves this world, the scores go all over the shop. Jokers, total estimate bonuses, total hit bonuses - you name it, most players do well this round, some by substantial amounts. Youngwillz remains in the lead and increases his score despite losing out on the estimate bonus, but others are closing in, and 14 out of the 30 punters are now out of the negatives. EDIT: Also, congrats to Gooseberry Crumble for escaping the bottom of the table. (Incidentally, two of the points gained by one player are on account of my correcting a prior mistake where they still had the 2 point penalty for being more than 5 out when they shouldn't have done. If you can spot who it is, I'll be mightily impressed).

    How many hits this year?

    I'd agree with one a month, so 12 or 13 in total. However, with no dead certs but plenty of low hanging fruit I wouldn't be surprised by anything in the 11 to 15 range.

    And with Baker making it an even 10, the field of scores gets a tad closer, with a fair bit of movement in the table despite only 4 punters predicting this outcome. YoungWillz slips a bit but remains on top of the table for now, sitting pretty on 3 points; but with this chasing field, he could well be overtaken with just one more death. Joey Russ and Sir Creep both move up into equal second on score and into equal first on total hits. Those who predicted 15 total deaths go up by 2 points for getting within 5 deaths of the total, and Drol goes up by 1 point for getting within 1 death of the total.

    I think it'll all get a little bit closer at the top and bottom. Expect an update tomorrow.

    Inverse Survivor Dead Pool I

    So running with the same three loosely themed teams in sequence perpetually with minimal tweaks wasn't a winning strategy. Who knew? (To be fair, I intended to be slightly less lazy in the unlikely event that I ever got to the final two).
