    3. Olivia De Havilland

    Ok, she may become the first A-list actress to become a supercentenarian then.

    3. Olivia De Havilland

    You can use the Sweepstakes thread for this matter.

    3. Olivia De Havilland

    I've read somewhere that She has promised not to write her memoirs until she's 110, so I think she'll be a first supercentenarian A-list celebrity and I go with 2027-2028.

    Roger Scruton

    Has anybody made him a joker?

    Derby Dead Pool 2020

    Scruton is My first hit.

    Roger Scruton

    I google "has cancer" in the Google News everyday. That's how I found out about his illness.

    Roger Scruton

    If he's really dead, he's my first hit here.

    I'm Russian, she's the star of our adaptation of "The Nanny", my mom would watch it on TV, when I was a little kid. We've already lost Valeri Zolotukhin (actor), Zhanna Friske (pop star), Mikhail Zadornov (a comedian, Russia's answer to Bernard Manning) and Dmitry Hvorostovsky (operatic baritone) to brain cancer. I really hope that the news about her cancer is a tabloid hoax. There has been no confirmation of her illness by her family and agent/publicist. In 2006, Lyubov Polishchuk (the actress who played the nanny's mother) herself died of spinal cancer. We've lost Alexandra Nazarova (the actress who played her grandmother) last year as well. If the rumours are true, she'll score me 10 points in DDP, in case she's obitable

    Dead Drummers

    Anyway, Brain cancer is as serious as pancreatic and much more serious than prostate cancer. I'm surprised that two my DDP picks, Frankie Banali and Lee Kerslake, who are also drummers, have outlived him.
  16. Etushispushingupdaisies

    38. Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    I've picked her for my first and only DDP team. A big mistake. I should have picked Bernard Tapie whose cancer has spread. (However, he is my pick in AO DP)

    https://www.ghanacelebrities.com/2019/01/30/photo-i-removed-5-ribs-and-my-small-intestines-to-have-a-tapoli-body-princess-shygnle-reveals/. Princess Shyngle is probably the daftest person I know, apart from Katya Sambuka (only Russians know who she is). She's like a new dimension of daftness. This African actress had 5 of her ribs and her small intestine removed in order to have a "tapoli" body. In 2016, she has been hospitalised with a kidney ailment due to her relentless use of waist trimmers, and it's been reported by Daily Mail.

    Ironic Deaths

    https://ria.ru/amp/20200105/1563122778.html. 40-year-old Russian oncologist and surgeon Andrei Pavlenko has lost his battle with stomach cancer this morning. His ordeal had been reported by RT a year or two years ago. I'm waiting for their obituary. Should I have posted this in "Famous for only being ill and dying"?

    Derby Dead Pool 2020

    My assessment. Kirk - Super-old, so I think 80% chance of him dying. Trebek - Has stage 4 pancan, which means he's effed. 75% Alagiah - Has been battling colon cancer since 2014, he's trying to outlast my grandpa who had prostate cancer removed along with a chunk of his bowel in 2004-2005 (he was 73 then) and died only 11 years later, 65% Banali - Has pancreatic cancer and Looks frail, totally effed, 98% Andretti - Still battling colon cancer, 60%. Vialli - another pancan sufferer, 80% Scruton - has cancer and looks frail, 75 % Gibson - No info on his stage, but he's 84, 70%. Hastings - Has Pancan, but is running for re-election, might die shortly after re-election, my only team has been sent weeks before Lewis' diagnosis has been reported, 45% Vazquez - Has stage 4 lung cancer,but his condition is improving, 50% Ginsberg - Ruthie has survived 3 battles with 3 different types of cancer, but she's turning 87, so it might be her year, should've picked Bernard Tapie, 55%. Gastineau - Demented football player with early-onset Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and colon cancer, but the tumor has been removed, 60% Smith - The cancer has spread to his brain, and it's up to no good, so 95% Weir - Has MND, but Judging by Hawking's longevity, he may make it to 76,I should've picked Jason Becker (neoclassical metal guitarist), so 40% Kulkov - Has stage 3 esophageal cancer, but the tumor has been removed and he's been discharged 3 weeks ago, if he survives this year, he's certainly a goner in 2021-early 2022, 45% Zavorotniuk - If the rumors that she has brain cancer are true, it's 85%, if the tabloids are lying and she's just tired, then it's 0,001%. Porridge - They can't fight leukemia for too long, 65%. Gulpilil - Terminal lung cancer, certainly effed, 90% Smullen - Pancreatic cancer has returned, 85% I think . I think my score won't be less than 105 What are your assessments of your teams?
