    Hospitalised!

    BREAKING: Followers of Shivakumara Swami to sue Deathlist.net, citing the community's frequent mockery of his routine hospitalizations and its usage of derogatory insults such as "the Sri Sri guy".

    2018 Report Card

    DDP: Shite start that ultimately cost me - but Laura Barry and David Shutts saved me from embarrassment and rebounded me enough to the point where I had a few months at the top and still may make the podium. B+ DDP B Team: 8 hits, 5/6 of my uniques died. Likes of Lietzke and Nuriddin being cast away to here show I underestimate unique chances nowadays though. B DDP Space Theme: 4 hits (+ 1 List of the Lost-er) including the joker and the only unique. B- Hartlepool: A mystery... though probably mid table since I had two early-year deaths in the bottom 2 spots DBN: Best pool performance of the year for me in terms of team quality. Caught up to a seemingly insurmountable Reptile and am now in the lead. Even if he takes the lead back (which can be done with any one of his survivors dying) it's a result I can be proud of. A+ Deathrace: Only one hit, 15/20 dead now but a lot of them were later in the year. D Hare's: Peaked a bit too early. A lot of hits midyear, crickets since. C+ Cup: Massive drop from my 2017 performance. KOed in March during the rematch with Heef - but would have won against most others that round, so sod's luck of the draw. D Windy City: My luck with mid year 2018 pools seems to get a lot better compared to beginning/early-year pools. In the lead, good chance it holds. A Poker: Haven't struck any juicy bonuses to the extent I did in 2017, but still have the lead for now. A-

    Kenny Rogers

    Reminds me during the 08 US election there was a blog called "Things Younger than John McCain" which had listed the likes of Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, shopping carts, etc. Both (1937) are older than Kenny though.

    Hospitalised!

    The writers of the Sri Sri Sri Shivakumara Swami Show always find ways to come up with exciting new plot twists. Now it looks like he'll be in hospital for two days rather than one.

    25. George Bush Senior

    Guessing it means those who won election to the presidency as a sitting vice president? Nixon had a gap, the rest ascended upon death.

    Deathrace 2019

    Death Slam Form Guide #19 Lawrence Ferlinghetti 2018 has proven a lackluster year for new 100 Club alumni. 2019 has a reasonable amount of interesting potentials to clock up a third digit, among those Lawrence Ferlinghetti, publisher of Allen Ginsberg's Howl. Will the oxymoron "centenarian Beat poet" become reality this upcoming March, or will his City Lights go out beforehand?

    Clinton def won't get anywhere near Bush Sr/Carter longevity, for sure. He'll be lucky to see his mid-80s.

    Inverse Dead Pool 2018

    Read my lips, Bush Sr. will not stand. However, he was less popular in the Inverse Dead Pool than he was in 1992, picked by a mere four teams that fell out of contention long ago, who nevertheless are all vomiting at the result. Or is it just the broccoli in the room making them feel that way? 1. machotrouts 17 2. The Dead Cow 22 3. John Key 23 4. theoldlady 25 5. Joey Russ 28 6. CastAway 30 =7.

    Inverse Dead Pool 2018

    INVERSE DEAD POOL 2018 Right, another new year, another year of guessing which of the creme de la creme amongst DDP nominations will dodge Mr. Reaper's surly grasp for the next twelve months. After doing a solid job as host for the past few years, The Dead Cow has chosen to step down and pass the baton to me. Despite a few easy bets for survival like Donald Trump and Val Kilmer, 2017 was brutal for the IDP with 20 deaths, more and more dead certs occupying the top 50, and many teams keeping misguided faith in the continued survival of Daisy Berkowitz and Helen Fawkes. drol won with 25 points, a commendable result considering no one else finished under 40 and only two other teams under 50. Rules From the list of the 50 most popular DDP picks of 2018, pick a team of 25 names who you think will survive the year. Rank your list in order of least likely to die to least least likely to die. Post your team in this thread. If someone dies and they are listed on your team, then you will receive points according to their position. If your #1 pick dies you'll receive 25 points, whilst if your #25 pick dies you'll receive 1 point. If someone dies and they are not on your list, then you receive no points. NEW RULE: In case one of the names available for entry dies before the submission deadline, you are allowed to have one sub. The sub can be anyone from the top 50 or the 51st most popular name, who will be revealed alongside the top 50. The 51st name can not be part of the original 25 if no one dies. In the case of one of your original team dying pre-deadline, the sub goes into 25th place by default, but you are allowed to change the position of the new pick. If the above scenario happens, you are also allowed to name a new sub and I will reveal the 52nd most popular name. Whoever has the lowest score at the end of the year is the winner. Credit to Toast for inadvertently coming up with a peach of a topic description, and of course, credit to Spade for creating this wonderful game. Credit to Dead Cow for his job as previous host, having a well-organized OP to C&P for this year, and the idea for a "dies during entry period" rule.

    25. George Bush Senior

    RIP. Would've picked him for TJS next year - I felt the opportunity to get points from a US President was irresistible, and it was timer's on mode for him after Barbara's death. So meh on that front.

    The Dead of 2018

    It's completely fine to post it here. Hillenburg does have a standalone thread, where his death has already been reported, but there's no issue posting the same death in multiple relevant threads.

    Who's Going To Be Around For A While?

    Yeah DVD is in that tier of super A list 90+ celebs where everyone knows he's both alive and really old hence why likes of him and Doris Day are Drop 40. Van Doren isn't obscure but nowhere near Van Dyke's level and a lot of people who heard the name might assume he's already dead.

    Ah well. Unless a Clegg miracle does happen, onto next year for me. ETA I double checked and couldn't even make up the gap with Clegg, unless he does a Sadhana! Hah.
