    Six people, six months

    This one is a small game and an experiment. To join you've got to pick six names, the only requirements are that they are over 18, somewhat known (don't have to be celebrities, it's good enough if there's information about their achievements on the internet. A wikipedia page could be good too) and two of them have to be under 100. You can join whenever you want and your 6-month countdown starts after you've posted your name list. Whoever gets all six first wins. You can rejoin with a new list if it's been six months since your last list 1. Kane Tanaka, world's oldest person, 117 2. Fauja Singh, runner, 109 3. Roberta McCain, McCain matriarch, 108 4. Loftollah Golpaygani, grand ayatollah, 101 5. Alex Trebek, tv host, 80 6. Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurashi, ISIS caliph, 43

    People who've got a thread

    I'll make more of the names bold as i've got everyone on the list, it's still very WIP Also I'll probably also change how they're categorized, one way would be by the birth year of the person or as Grim Up North suggested, alphabetically. Or maybe both, everyone born in one decade (1920s, 1930s etc) in alphabetical order

    They aren't all mentioned anywhere though Sorry, didn't know that thread exists

    Irate Visitors Rage Here, If You Must.

    I am not exactly enraged but I couldn't find a good thread for asking this: Is there a list anywhere of alive people (maybe also smaller groups of people) who already have threads, preferably made before 2020? It would be helpful to know all the people who have one so that when they one day die, the death is reported in that thread and not somewhere else. If there isn't, can I make a list of them?

    Political Frailty

    Don't know if I'm worried for no reason, but Wolff tweeted these and hasn't tweeted again in 6 days. Sounds odd that he's asking about Taiwan-related things on twitter considering that a month ago he talked about them for two hours. Edit: He's back

    Who are the immortals?

    Suggestions: Erling Lorentzen (born 1923) Norwegian-Brazilian founder of Aracruz Cellulose, widower of Princess Ragnhild. Looks different, sometimes younger in every picture taken of him, doesn't seem to age despite being 98 Ele Alenius (born 1925) Finnish politician, former minister of finance and leader of SKDL in the 1960s. Survived a stroke in 2018, moved to a nursing home in 2021 but despite his health issues still actively gives interviews, a really great guy Hazel McCallion (born 1921) Canadian politician, former mayor of Missisauga. Looks like a female Prince Philip, still working and currently a chancellor of Sheridan College. Former professional women's hockey player. Kamuta Latasi and Tulaga Manuella (born 1936) Tuvaluan politicians: Tulaga was a governor-general and Latasi the prime minister in the mid 1990s. They're both overweight judging on pictures of them and 20 years above the male life expectancy in their country. Only 6.6% of Tuvaluans are over 65.

    Who are the immortals?

    Botswana had two centenarians in 2020, both female. Around 75 over 95-year olds of which 16 are male, of which Chiepe and Mogwe were one eighth Mogwe was most likely among the 10 oldest people in the country, possibly among the top five.

    1. Prince Philip Duke Of Edinburgh

    I would be suprised if he lived that far and didn't look a bit like Margaret looked like in 2001. When (or if) they're going to celebrate his 100th birthday, he probably won't appear in public unless the queen forces him to.

    Ian St John

    If they would've picked *name every single somewhat known celebrity who has died this year* they'd already be at 25/50! R.I.P. Ian.

    Political Frailty

    Ano Turtiainen (born 1967) Finnish politician, currently a parliament member kicked out of his political party for controversial opinions. Doping-filled giant powerlifter who has beaten multiple people up (including a 14-year old boy) and is now threathening to beat up members of his former political party. Thinks wearing masks is some kind of a zionist lie to make everyone muslims and has troubles breathing and known internationally for mocking George Floyd on twitter. Because of this, his business is falling. And he has had health problems. Today he was in the news for saying "every covid casuality would have died of something else soon after" I'm pretty sure he won't make it to 60. If it isn't COVID or suicide due to failing businesses, his heart will fail sooner or later

    DL Survivors by Number

    This pool is very simple. It includes the deathlist survivors and the numbers they have had on the list. The person who guesses the next number that will become "extinct" wins. The people who survived the 2020 deathlist will be added to this list in 2021. The survivors, by number: 1: Wilko Johnson, Prince Philip 2: Currently no-one alive, number can't be picked 3: Currently no-one alive, number can't be picked 4: Prince Philip 5: Prince Philip 6: Prince Philip, Dick Van Dyke 7: Frank Bruno, Betty White 8: Jimmy Carter, Emperor Akihito 9: Tony Bennett, Linda Nolan 10: Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Bob Dole 11: Bob Dole, Murray Walker 12: Tim Johnson, Henry Kissinger 13: Prince Philip, Bob Dole, Betty White 14: Mike Ditka, Angela Lansbury 15: Jimmy Carter, Bob Barker 16: Prince Philip, Murray Walker, Alan Greenspan 17: Ozzy Osbourne, Peter Alliss, Ali Khamenei, Leslie Phillips, Bob Dole, Emperor Akihito, Henry Kissinger 18: Brian Wilson, Bob Barker, Betty White, Jimmy Carter 19: Desmond Tutu, Prunella Scales 20: Mike Ditka, Bob Dole, Jimmy Carter 21: David Jenkins, Leslie Phillips, June Brown 22: Bob Dole, Prunella Scales, Betty White, Tony Bennett 23: Dick Cheney, Jimmy Carter, Harry Belafonte 24: Rex Williams, Leslie Phillips, Henry Kissinger, Queen Elizabeth II, Alan Greenspan 25: Tommy Chong 27: Edmund White, Bob Dole, Henry Kissinger 26: Henry Kissinger, Mr T, Russell Watson, Nigel Lawson, Bob Dole, Bob Barker, Dick Van Dyke 28: Ray Kennedy, Barbara Walters, Prunella Scales 29: Louis Farrakhan, Hamed Karzai, Leslie Phillips, Desmond Tutu 30: Ozzy Osbourne, Oprah Winfrey, Abdelaziz Bouteflika, Dick Van Dyke, Harry Belafonte, Jacques Delors 31: Liza Minelli, Sandy Gall, Stanley Baxter, Desmond Tutu, Willie Nelson 32: Hamed Karzai 33: Mel Brooks, Ed Asner 34: Leo Beenhakker, Henry Kissinger, Desmond Tutu, Benedict XVI, Vanessa Redgrave, Abdelaziz Bouteflika 35: George Lineker, Pervez Musharraf, Lester Piggott, Sandy Gall, Jimmy Greaves 36: Henry Kissinger, Benedict XVI, June Brown, Sidney Poitier, Shane MacGowan 37: Shaun Ryder, Holly Johnson, Dick Cheney 38: Terry White, Cleo Laine 39: Louis Farrakhan, Loretta Lynn, Imelda Marcos 40: Nick Leeson, Desmond Tutu, Mikhail Gorbachev 41: Dick Van Dyke, Emperor Akihito, Lester Piggott 42: Murray Walker, Jimmy Greaves, Joanne Woodward 43: Holly Johnson, Henry Kissinger, Dick Van Dyke, Jimmy Greaves, David Crosby 44: Angela Lansbury, Prunella Scales, Tom Smith 45: Jake Roberts 46: Michael Douglas, Tony Bennett, Ronnie Wood, Larry King, Jean-Marie Le Pen 47: Jerry Lee Lewis, Carly Simon, Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, Olivia Newton-John, Tina Turner, Pervez Musharraf 48: Ed Asner, Paul Cascoigne, Joni Mitchell, Shane MacGowan 49: Louis Farrakhan, Charles Taylor, Paul Cascoigne, David Attenborough 50: Peter Shilton 51 to 56 are extinct numbers that were once used but everyone who were on the DL with these numbers are dead. If there's a something that I missed or got wrong, please tell. You can pick any number that is not picked already, the first person who picks the number gets it. If, for example Prince Philip would die, everyone who picked a number where Philip is the only survivor would get a point.

    Deadpool Detective Work

    Is Yanardag (born 1991), horse of Saparmurat Niyazov (1940-2006) still alive? The stallion is depicted on the coat of arms of the country, multiple stamps and according to wikipedia often in the news in Turkmenistan. I'm pretty sure there would have been something in the news if the horse would have died, got a monument in the capital of the country a few years ago.
