    The 19th Death of 2020

    Thoughts and Opinions on the 2020 List

    Appropriate that we have a huge year for celeb deaths where the DL result matches it. Given 2016 was the "standard" 12 hits (of course bearing in mind 2016 had a bunch of Bowie-type deaths that were not anticipated).

    Vaaaaaaaaaaaaaalery He loves his Vaaaaaaaaaaaaaalery Yep, another unique hit for DeathByArsenic with the discarding of Valery Giscard d'Estaing. That's his seventh unique hit now, and the fifth of them to be French. Could have been a killer combination had the ordering of the deaths been more in his favor, but instead Giscard d'Estaing was atop his list and so his base value sunk throughout the previous hits to 20, netting 8 extra for uniqueness for 28 points total. EDIT: It has been revealed Giscard d'Estaing died of COVID-19. He is the second such fatality in this pool after William Frankland, and delivers an extra .19 points to DeathByArsenic.

    The 18th death of 2020

    Steve, Deadpool, roaming_comrade, and GuyFromFuture all successfully gauged Giscard d'Estaing would break the record. Well done. Thread closed.

    This is from one of his relatives who previously quashed the false death rumors.

    The next HPDP thread is still a few weeks away from creation, but ahead of time I would like to propose a tiny adjustment to the bonuses. Currently, the US president bonus applies to only incumbent or recent US presidents. For instance, when tallying the 2018 scores I did not give the bonus to George HW Bush as he had been out of office for nearly 26 years. And of course a living elephant in the room (or should that be donkey?). I am mulling expanding this bonus to apply to ANY US president, regardless of how long ago they served. Thoughts? I do not desire to make vast adjustments to the HPDP bonuses, whether it be adding new ones or drastically rewriting the names it benefits. But this change would only affect a very small number of names.

    Hows Your 2021 Shortlist Looking?

    Pretty much where I'm at now; one DDP win was enough for me so I have not done deadpooler searches for months now. So mine will end up very conventional. Maybe I'll throw in some interesting old people for a bit of flavor.

    Misuse of power

    Please carefully consider thread ideas before starting them. Not really sure what you have in mind with these.

    I agree, this election was stolen by the Democrats. Nothing says stealing an election quite like losing a dozen or so of their House incumbents and barely making gains in the Senate.
  11. Doug Jones could squeak by in 2017 because he was running in a special election against the worst senatorial candidate in recent history. It's worth noting that Jones didn't really peel off a lot of Republican voters - the biggest reason he won was because Moore was bad enough to significantly depress Republican turnout in a special election where that was the only race on the ballot. Had Roy Moore been the GOP candidate this year, even he would have won easily thanks to the presidential turnout (albeit perhaps by an embarrassing margin for an Alabama Republican).

    Technically Jennings will be the first of several interim hosts. The next permanent host still is not decided.

    Post containing Maranne's phone number hidden. We already have enough proof he's still alive; posting that kind of info is a bit too much.
