    Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a general U.K. political thread. I'm Canadian. To me, he's foreign.

    To complicate things further, the internet wasn't always the internet. It was the Information superhighway, then the world wide web, then the internet.

    No, I don't have another hit but I do have a peculiar circumstance and wonder if anyone else is similarly affected. I noticed that in Mozilla Firefox (my usual browser) the AO Deadpool does not have the most recent scoring update. When I check it in Internet Explorer (and also Google Chrome), the update appears. Exact same URL, different results. I've attached a copy of each. Anybody else using Firefox?

    The term 'acute leukemia' was an attention grabber for me. It has an ominous tone. However, all that I read about him indicated he wasn't in any acute danger of dying. Still, given his age, he was someone I considered when submitting my original list, as well as the revised one. Ultimately, I left him off both times.

    Yet to be update on the website but I will take this as what it'll look like. Yes, the efficiency of the points-per-hit is one measure for the deadpool. It can be a combination of younger hits and a little good luck (daily doubles, birthday deaths). Mr. Tierney's rate is just over 14 points per hit. That's among the better totals for anyone with a minimum of 5 hits, let's say. Additionally, the John Bain hit did exclude everyone whose youngest pick is older than him from potentially collecting that year-end bonus. Now, I did mention in one post that Bain was my youngest pick in the deadpool and that anyone who may have Justin Bieber or Lindsay Lohan, for example, could best me with their deaths. Anyone reading that post may have also caught on that I don't have Carl Ikeme, whom some people chose. He was a shortlisted pick for me, but everything I read about him indicated he was on the road to recovery. That still appears to be the case. In fact, there is news from about a day ago he's in complete remission.
