    The 100 Club

    A thread for people who have passed the age of 100 but have (very, very) faint claims to fame other than "just being old". The lifeblood of many a DDP theme team, really, may as well get them all in one place. Plus it gives me an excuse to have a regular meeting point for two of my favourites: 110-year-old paranormal investigator Alexander Imich and 107-year-old financier Irving Kahn, who apparently still goes to work daily. Check out his current stock portfolio here. Anyway, so here's where we can rhapsodise about Run Run Shaw, Roy Douglas and Vo Nguyen Giap and the many public appearances they'll no doubt be making in the near future. One of the leading actors of the pre-blaxploitation era cowboy "race movies", Herb Jeffries, just turned 100.

    Theresa May

    I think May, like Brown, will die before they get into Deathlist selection territory. Major and Cameron will be DL names in the 2030s and 2050s respectively, I think Blair should make it to his ninth decade as well.

    If Danny Trejo says my dick doesn't work, I'm not going to argue with him.

    Derby Dead Pool 2019

    Is officially open for business. Emails appear to be very slow sending out, if you haven't received one by, idk, tomorrow, let me know.

    Death In The Family

    Can only echo what's been said, burn one for OW.

    Derby Dead Pool 2019

    I liked Nan Winton as a pick, sort of classy pick that elevates the DDP imho.

    Dead Pop Stars

    Alabama 3's The Reverend D. Wayne Love has died, apparently following a performance at the Highpoint Festival. If you're wondering what he did in Alabama 3's most famous song.... the answer is nothing, his verse is cut out in the edit used for The Sopranos' theme tune.

    Celebrity Chefs

    Add Cecilia Chang to the list of people who look far too good for their age. She's 99:

    Celebrity Chefs

    If we're doing listamanias, André Soltner (b.1932) is the only person still living who won a James Beard Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award in the 20th century. Other still living lifetime achievement winners: 2004: Alice Waters (b.1944) 2005: Jacques Pépin (b.1935) 2008: Fritz Maytag (b.1937) 2012: Wolfgang Puck (b.1949) 2013: Cecilia Chang (b.1920) 2014: Sirio Maccioni (b.1932) 2015: Rich Melman (b.1942) 2016: Greg Boyle (b.1954) 2017: Nora Pouillon (b.1943) 2018: Paula Wolfert (b.1938) 2019: Patrick O'Connell (b.1938) I know Wolfert has dementia, but I'd be lying if I said I had any major insight into the health of the rest of that gang.

    List Of Dead Commies

    Carlos Altamirano, who was general secretary of the Chilean Socialist Party throughout the 1970s, dead at 96. He managed to escape to Cuba when Pinochet killed Allende, and ruled the party in exile. Chile's special forces unsuccessfully tried to assassinate him at General Franco's funeral in 1975 as well.

    Assuming she gets the QO, this will come under my "an old person falling over is not an unnatural death" ruling.

    33. Ed Asner

    Looks perfectly healthy in hit Netflix series Dead to Me.

    Alan Brazil

    I've mentioned him a few times here, but this is a photo from his radio show the other day. Has he now beaten Jim Neidhart to the record of the man with the highest blood pressure in history?

    The Dead of 2019

    I think IM Pei is the only person we have ever been told by The Committee would never be on the DL proper.

    2. Herman Wouk

    Dead but only announced by son so far. At his age he probably didn't have an agent so the press confirmation might take a few hours before they can ring around enough relatives.

    Absolute madness.
