    Bollywood Stars

    Take this from an Indian from Maharashtra - Mangeshkar is more than a celebrity in India. She's known as the Nightingale of India for good reason - she started her career around Indian independence and sung for every major movie for a good 4+ decades. She's literally been the playlist of several generations of people. Additionally, she's also sung major religious and nationalistic songs over the years which have had a major impact on the country. There's maybe three/four "mainstream" celebs whose health demands this amount of attention in the country - Tendulkar, Amitabh Bacchan, Mangeshkar, and Rajnikanth. Bacchan and Rajnikanth's deaths will almost certainly cause the country to shutdown, and I won't be surprised if that will happen for Tendulkar and Mangeshkar as well, but they'll definitely cause Maharashtra to shut down (both are from and live in the state) EDIT: Easiest comparison to a former deathlister is Gord Downie. When Downie died, Canada shut down. When Mangeshkar dies, so will India (her death will be less tragic, of course, given her age, but it won't change the impact I don't think)

    Prince Andrew

    As MPFC notes, it's because the judge believes that there's evidence her word is reliable - with evidence being the key point here. I'd imagine it doesn't help that Andrew's argument during the last round of hearings wasn't "didn't do it!" it was "according to the last deal she made, she can't go after me legally." Yes, I know he's claiming he didn't do it to the media, but saying things to the media is different from saying things in court. In court, his argument was about whether she could legally go after him for money given her deal with Epstien, and they ruled she could. But that also meant he wasn't pushing the "didn't do it" angle, legally speaking at least. Now, there's evidence that they'll go with the "didn't do it" push in the upcoming trial, but that doesn't do much to change what the existing rulings have been.

    Thoughts On The 2022 List

    Let's be honest, it's being politically on the left (at least what passes for the left in the US/Canada) It's a very interesting list is all I'm saying, and definitely feels more like wish fulfillment in sections than actual predictions. Which isn't necessarily a wrong way to deadpool, but it's definitely not the way to determine the main list.

    Notable Coronavirus Victims

    Should note that the Qidiots have taken her death as proof that hospitals are killing people and are either threatening to kill healthcare workers or paying a bounty to those who do manage to do it. it's only the fringes making the threats so far, but these morons can't even die properly.

    Where Will The Next School Massacre Be?

    Should note that this seems to have been expected by the students (though neither the school nor the cops did anything): "Robin Redding said her son, Treshan Bryant, is a 12th grader at the school but stayed home on Tuesday. She said he had heard threats of a shooting at the school" https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/nov/30/michigan-school-shooting-oxford

    Political Frailty

    I remain continuously surprised that, given the sheer number of 80+ US senators and congresspeople, we don't see more deaths in office.
