  1. The Deathlist Cup 2018

    Marieke and her mum never got along. She's going to kill herself as a birthday present.
  2. Last Word

    Claribel Alegria got an Independent obit (!) at least.
  3. Scavenger Hunt Bingo Deadpool II

    I sent something.. ..good luck everyone!
  4. Derby Dead Pool 2018

    Donald Trump's bio probably, and sadly, needs updating.
  5. Nobel Prize In Death

    Physics nobel laureate of 1990, Richard Taylor, dead at 88: https://news.stanford.edu/2018/02/22/nobel-prize-winning-physicist-richard-taylor-dies-88/
  6. Aristocrats

    Slane Castle owner Lord Henry Mountcharles almost died last month: https://www.irishmirror.ie/news/news-opinion/slane-owner-lord-henry-mountcharles-11999872
  7. Dead Architects

    I was in the city of Dessau last weekend, famous worldwide for the Bauhaus and the "Meisterhäuser" by Walter Gropius. They looked somewhat between ordinary and ugly.
  8. Rotten Dead Pool

    7/10 now after Billy Graham - personal best. Sadly, I subbed out Barys Kit for George Bush Sr. who now looks like the most likely holdout.
  9. 34. Pope Benedict XVI

    I don't like the way he looks (in the sense that I wouldn't want to look like this). Not Dilip-Kumar-bad but still...
  10. Only Famous For Being Ill And Dying

    The Dead Cow was remarkably certain about this
  11. Radio 4

    Very high on my (imaginary) list of likely returns of lung cancer.
  12. Franco Zeffirelli

    I have promoted him quite a bit in the past months, to no avail. But then, I might have overestimated his decrepitude.
  13. Gay Byrne

    He finished chemo and says the signs are good: https://www.independent.ie/life/health-wellbeing/living-with-cancer/gay-byrne-ends-chemotherapy-the-fight-continues-and-weve-a-long-hard-road-to-go-yet-36619070.html Yet, there's an undertone that it isn't over, and it feels to me as if it only is a respite. I have a feeling it will be back in the fall, and more severe. Maybe charon is right?
  14. Interesting Ways To Die...

    Ah, I only check the most closely-related threads, never more than 2-3 (and I would have had to search for the term 'hair' to have a chance) ... anyway... Getting killed by melting headphones (caused by electric shock?) while you charge your mobile phone: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/5626441/girl-17-electrocuted-with-headphones-melted-in-her-ears-while-using-her-mobile-that-was-charging/
  15. Political Frailty

    Interesting name only for Deathlist Cup purposes but I thought this personality deserves a bit more attention - John Howard, mayor of Lancaster, South Carolina. Had a stroke in 2017: http://www.thelancasternews.com/content/mayor-suffered-stroke-–-‘i-dodged-bullet’ Then diagnosed with lung cancer: http://www.thelancasternews.com/content/mayor-howard-begin-cancer-treatment Then he had an auto-immune reaction to chemo: another link but I'm paywalled now. Then he had pneunomia: another link but I'm paywalled now. Anyway, now he's recovering....
