    African Despots

    Mubarak first, because I want to know which DL member pops up in the forums once he's dead.

    Alex Trebek

    If we're talking about Jeopardy candidates, has anyone considered Johnny Gilbert? Purely age related - he's gone 90. That he's still announcing says he's in decent health, but at that age, being old is a legitimate cause of death.

    Political Frailty

    Former President of Chad, Lol Mahamat Choua, dead at 80. He was President for like 6 months and seems to have been a puppet President installed by the Niigerians, so jury's out on how relevant he was, but he's still dead.

    Ol'Kirky boy again.

    Thoughts and opinions on the death list 2019

    I don't know how likely that is - as ridiculous as it sounds, the 100+ crowd on the list seem to be perfectly happy to continue living, and I've always felt them to be the most likely to randomly pop off when a hit is desperately needed. That said, if any hits are to happen, hoping for some of the perennial bedwarmers on the list to clear out so there's at least some talk as to who'll be brought over to next year.

    General Non School Massacre Thread

    As an aside, apparently Texas is once again reducing restrictions on ownership like literally today or tomorrow, so...I'm going to take a wild guess about which state the next mass shooting will be in.

    Surprise, it's Texas again - 5 dead, 21 injured so far: https://www.huffingtonpost.in/entry/odessa-shooting-texas-injuries_n_5d6ae71fe4b09bbc9ef00f20

    Hal Naragon, who played 10 seasons in the MLB for the Indians and Senators/Twins, has died aged 90.

    The 8th Death of 2019

    I'm still calling conspiracy theory on the cancer diagnosis being faked given how long she's somehow lived with it

    Joe Biden

    Honestly, glad to see I'm not the only one thinking dementia or some other cognitive disorder. And it's not even excusable gaffes either - the Vemont thing is understandable given the demands of the campaign trail, the "poor kids are just as smart as white kids" or whatever he said was daft and anyone could have seen the backlash coming. He tried to make up for it, but the Biden of even the VP years doesn't make the mistake to begin with.

    Ice Hockey Players

    Paul Mercer, who was at the time of death thought to be the oldest living Montreal Canadien and oldest living Stanley Cup winner, has died aged 90. Campbell's a reliable hockey journalist, and the only other source I could find is one of those random obit websites, so this the tweet will do.

    Thoughts and opinions on the death list 2019

    I mean, I won't complain if some of the bed warmers on the list/various deadpools get claimed. But it seems like a lot of people who would be certs for next year are dying ASAP post diagnosis of fatal illnesses, while Bracknell continues to make me question if she ever had cancer to begin with.

    Thoughts and opinions on the death list 2019

    Agreed - it's not even the main DL, even the Drop 40's doing pretty poorly this year, so it's not like the masses were better at picking than the committee. Barring a seriously major death, this year's just not too big of a blip on the 'celebrity death' radar, IMO.

    Derby Dead Pool 2019

    Should point out that the wrong Koch brother's marked as dead in the A-Z list - it's David that's carked it, not Charles.
