    Statistics

    I didn't know where to post this so I have created a new thread. If a mod thinks it is already covered please move it. I was thinking about who are the general Deathlist picks so as a starting point I took my 1000 name longlist and split people up into broad categories. Almost 3/4 of the list is taken up with just 5 categories 254 - Actors 192 - Music Industry 120 - Writers 103 - Politicians 69 - Sport Where the is ambiguity I have used a judgement rather than record people twice. I don't know if this says more about me or whether peoples longlists are similar. I suppose the ultimate long list is the DDP master list. Because this is my longlist it doesn't contain the 450 names on my shortlist who are probably more likely to go.

    Thoughts and Opinions on the 2020 List

    October 16th is the next key date in order to stay ahead of 2017. That gives us almost a month but we have had a slow time since Olivia.

    So .. What Do You Watch On TV?

    Just finished the second go through of all three seasons of Netflix Anime series Aggretsuko about an anthromorphised raccoon that sings death metal karaoke to detract from her tedious office life as a junior accountant

    Authors Last A Long Time, But....

    I read Wizard's First Rule and my wife read some of the later ones. His books contained an awful lot of violence against women and some serious S&M issues and in his later books he started thanking the CIA for keeping America safe.

    Scavenger Hunt Bingo Deadpool III

    SCAVENGER HUNT BINGO DEADPOOL RULES Each player picks five selections in each of five categories (for categories see below). There are three ways to win 1. You get at least one hit in each of the five categories 2. You get all five hits in one category 3. You get three unique hits across the whole game. There is no fixed duration you play until there is a winner. In the event of a tie number of uniques will be the next determiner followed by total number of hits across all categories. Obits will not be stringent (more akin to Deathrace requirements). However the Game Controller will be checking that picks meet the category criteria at the start of the game. A unique pick is considered unique in category. For example if two categories were Conservative MPs and Contestants on Strictly Come Dancing/Dancing with the Stars and three players picked Edwina Curry in the first category and the fourth player picked her in the second category. If she eggspired then Player 4 would get a unique bonus. When a winner is declared the selection of the next categories passes to the victor and they get to select the new categories. The winner may opt to pass or play on the organisation of the game. If they pass I will run the game based on their selections or they can take the whole thing. The Categories for the third game are: 1. Any actor (gender neutral term) who has appeared in an official EON James Bond film between Dr No & No Time To Die ( 2. Any player who was part of a FIFA Men's World Cup Finals squad (don't have to have played in the tournament) 3. Anyone who has won a Nobel Prize in any category 4. Any human deemed to have achieved spaceflight (according to this wiki list: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_astronauts_by_first_flight ) 5. Any on-stage performer for a country in a Eurovision Grand Final. Teams must be PM’d to avoid revealing those unique picks. There will be a two week period at the beginning of September after the lists are published for disputes to be settled people whose picks are removed at this point will be allowed replacements but will not be allowed to pick another person's unique pick. Starting Date is 01 September 2020

    Shadow Lists

    Shame you aren't playing Scavenger Hunt. If you won you could pick Germans as one of the categories for the next round

    Shadow Lists

    Angela Merkel has seen off Five British Prime Ministers and she is probably the only German politician I could name so the lack of candidates could be down to political stability.

    Death In The Family

    So sorry to hear that. Take your time, do what you need to do but don't torture yourself over paths not taken. Something like this is always hard.

    Shadow Lists

    @Book Helmut Kohl (iirc) was on the list so I think it is the current lack of a suitable German candidate for the Deathlist though in my opinion Pope Benedict should be on the list Are there any names you were thinking of?

    To illustrate how big a surprise the death of Diana Rigg was for me. She was not one of the 1500 names on my long list.

    Space Fliers updated for Dying Probably and The Old Lady's missing pick. It wasn't a unique. The numbering is now off but I can alter that when I am not on my phone. Numbering now corrected

    For me I like The Assassination Bureau and her turn as Lady Deadlock in Bleak House neither of which tend to get mentioned in her obits.

    @Dying Probably Yes I missed this one You did not submit a substitute so any replacement you pick cannot be one that would deny another player a unique so you can pick one of the ones in the list in black or another name. You have until I have completed the last list plus two weeks to provide me with a name or I will assign one to you
