    Winter Olympic Deaths

    Picked in the DDP before - but not this time. So a bit of a miss for me, and Banana. She seemed okay until very recently. It was one of those cancer battles with a lot of ups and downs.

    The 2021 Deathlist Cup

    Seems like Zak Nilsson is dead: http://www.noise11.com/news/zak-nilsson-loses-his-battle-with-cancer-20210305

    Animal Antics

    I think it's worth posting this in the "celebrity pregnancy" thread.

    Derby Dead Pool 2021

    That's a funny idea. I tried to change the web address like you can do with uk.yahoo into: https://www.bbc.co.uk/pidgin/tori-56276324 Only, it redirects you to the international one. So it still doesn't count, I'd say.

    People who've got a thread

    I have actually wondered if the number of "active" single-people threads is more or less stable or actually inflationary.

    So, are they actually trying to fix him? I can't wait for Cyborg Phil 2.0.

    Cup and AO pool pick Spanish TV presenter Mila Ximenez, no, not dead, but there are "complications" because her lung cancer has become more aggressive in part: https://www.lecturas.com/actualidad/mila-ximenez-regresa-a-salvame-tras-meses-ausencia-y-pleno-tratamiento-contra-cancer_97932 Ah yes,

    The 2021 Deathlist Cup

    Nabindra Raj Joshi supposedly improving - off the ventilator, but risk remains: https://myrepublica.nagariknetwork.com/news/joshi-s-health-improving-blood-pressure-under-control/ My first replacement, and definitely would have made it if he had been 10 years older.

    RIP Margartet!
  13. Lunch break mystery... (yeah, that's what I do as almost the only one in my department to not be working from home). I caught this story in the Guardian about Chinese billionaires kicking out British millionaires of newly acquired golf clubs: https://www.theguardian.com/news/2021/mar/02/wentworth-golf-club-reignwood-yan-bin In the article, I stumbled across Sir Stanley Simmons, former physician of the queen, supposedly still alive in his 80s. Only, he's been dead since 2017: https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/thetimes-uk/obituary.aspx?n=stanley-clifford-simmons&pid=185691622 And the article had already been run by the Guardian in 2016: https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2016/feb/20/battle-for-wentworth-golf-club-surrey-super-rich So yeah, they altered the article slightly, put a new author on top, but didn't remember to check their quotations. (I'm kind of considering talking to the author on his twitter account later) Edit: Well, the author is an author and actually relevant historian at the University of Cambridge... Jesus, you'd think he'd be a little more careful.

    The DL Prediction Game 2021

    I kind of thought he might/should have been picked this year. There was an ominous silence. But then, I hardly committed to that thought anywhere myself.

    The Fringes Of Fame/family Of The Famous

    Erminia Motika, mother of celebrity / TV cook Lidia Bastianich, has died about two weeks ago at 100: https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/chef-lidia-bastianichs-beloved-mother-grandma-died.html/ Most marginal person I ever allowed in the Death By Numbers. Picked last year.
