    Did she die on the 18th? If she cashed in her chips yesterday I too get cash for scoring a hit on my birthday on a death pool.

    Political Frailty

    I occasionally come across "psychic predictions" that deaths will come when a mass distribution of indictments occurs. I'd have to add thirty greedy sociopaths to my longlist, and, not being psychic myself, I can't tell which of them would be the most likely to end their troubles that way. I wish I were, I'd have more success and more satisfaction from these games.

    Seriously, maybe brain cancer? Personality changes can happen. If he's spotted eating a burger out, that's more evidence. Then again, Jeremy Corbyn is left-wing and a vegetarian. The Guardian article quotes Morrissey: Pasting from Wikipedia page on "Adolf Hitler and vegetarianism": Lots of lifelong vegetarians are normal, bright, and happy and have adequate nutrition in their diets to keep them that way; but it's easy for people very sensitive to animal rights to the point of avoiding avocados because insects are exploited to make them (learned this on QI), to starve their brains of essential fats and vitamins more readily absorbed from animal (including fish, many ocean/saltwater varieties which aren't part of factory farming or inhumane slaughterhouse conditions) protein. Fun Morrissey quotes about his tour in Canada:

    How many hits this year?

    ... indeed. Since Wednesday I was thinking the drought has been long. It's like watching a kettle boil, or paint dry, while other kettles one's not connected with whistle every two or three days with surprise celebrity deaths.

    Vonda McIntyre? I went to a party at her house decades ago.

    The 2019 Deathlist Cup

    There goes my winning strategy. Anyone else holding off on submitting a team because of the Whirlwind Reaporama from March 14 to March 18, suspecting their opponents will score with four-plus hits from March 27 to the end of the month?

    According to my list I have a hit in my Hitchcock-themed HPDP 2019 entry with the passing of Katherine Helmond. 5 7 points. BBC Obit

    A shame Pedroza went so soon. If he'd hung on for another 24 hours I'd have had scored a birthday bonus on another death pool website.

    The 2019 Deathlist Cup

    My team's in too. Curious game theory situation though, as my potential opponent and I have a great deal of overlap in our February teams, and identical scores. It is possible my March matchup used similar research methods, and, pleased with succeeding to the next round, replicated them. Maybe it's going to come down to the coin flip or the cool name.

    I've crushed on Hollis and loved his music since 1984. I even wrote to him. I am devastated. He died of cancer, apparently. Anyone want to see photos of his living room?

    Derby Dead Pool 2019

    One of my DDP themed lists seems to be going in alphabetical order: Carol Channing, John Cocks (no QO), and now Stanley Donen. I should have looked at the list and voted on the DL 2019 for Kirk Douglas to be the Second Death.
