    Ha, I see the same phenomenon with the Sir Creep/Banana name. That one I didn't know.

    Ha, I see Diego has reacted and I wasn't sure if he was shocked by the high number or that it's far too low. Anyway, Diego, go on and reach for the stars.

    I got tired of always thinking about where to put the activists, so here's a thread for them: First entry: Feminist Sheila Michaels, who spread the title "Ms." dead at 78 from leukemia: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/jul/09/sheila-michaels-feminist-helped-change-the-world-with-ms-title-for-women http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-40528950 I guess you can also put your anti-rape campaigners, black lives matter-folks, and Ralph Nader in here. Edit: Link fixed

    Raghavan Iyer, a tireless promoter of Indian cuisine dies at 61: https://m.startribune.com/cookbook-author-and-teacher-raghavan-iyer-dead-at-61/600263703/ He had announced his cancer not too long ago and his death comes a little sudden, having been very active until the end.

    Deathlist Cup 2023

    Thank you @arghton for the game, it was an honor. A difficult month, and maybe your score "should" have been higher. The old and frail are unpredictable that way. Your unique names will be assimilated and added to our database.

    Life In Prison

    If you want to take a gamble... Business ally of Venezuelan president Maduro, Alex Saab is in an American prison, and has a possible recurrence of stomach cancer, a bacterial infection, a broken molar because of beatings, anemia, anorexia, diabetes type 2, hypothryoidism, hypertension, and a high risk of thromboemblic disease: https://www.workers.org/2023/03/69987/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alex_Saab
  9. There's no recent death or news item to create this thread, but there are a couple of really old, really rich people worth watching: Warren Buffett, 83, 4th richest person alive, has been in the news for choosing his successor at Berkshire Hathaway. Charles and David Koch, 78 and 74, 6th richest people alive, CEOs of Koch Industries, have massively funded conservative politicians in favor of fossil fuels. Bernie Ecclestone, 83, under corruption charges and threatened as boss of Formula 1 racing. George Soros, 83, 26th richest person alive, massive supporter of The Democratic Party, doesn't look too healthy but there are no bad news so far. Ingvar Kamprad, 88, Founder of IKEA, very secretive. DEAD Sheldon Adelson, 80, Las Vegas casino magnate, another guy who spends millions of dollars on politicians to ensure that society will go on in a way he thinks is best even after his death Karl Albrecht, 94, 23rd richest person alive, Germany's richest guy and co-founder of ALDI, his brother died last year. When will it be his turn? DEAD Liliane Bettencourt, 91, 11th richest person alive and richest french person, owner of L'Oreal, was involved in a corruption scandal and legal trouble with her daughter. DEAD Also worth watching: The Walton Family, owners of Wal-Mart and maybe even Bill Gates who is still only 58, but looks much older, in my opinion.

    Death By Numbers 2023

    Hello Everyone, here we are again. Time for a new round, are you up for it? Do you think we can ever surpass the score record of 1838 by DevonDeathTrip in the Death By Numbers of 2016? Well, I guess it's time you try! The general rules: Send me 50 main team names by pm or just post them in this thread, if you want, from now on until Dec 31st 2022, 23:59 GMT. You can choose one joker who gives you double points. Submission form: Just give them in the normal "First name", "Last name" format Please don't number them, don't give any added data, like birthdays. And only note their claim to fame if there might be confusion, for example: Frank Williams (racing team owner) Frank Williams (UK actor) The scoring is [year of birth] - 1900 = score. So someone born in 2001 will get 101 points in case of death You may submit the following people: living, not expecting or knowing their precise date of death (by execution, dignitas, or whatever), at least 18 years old on the beginning of January 1st, 2023, and being somewhat notable. "Somewhat notable" means: they should at least be notable for something else aside from being terminally ill. "Something else" being something that has an effect on society. Terminally ill activists are okay if they've done at least something generally beneficial, a campaign, a book, or a winning court case. If they're only in the news because of their tragedy or because they need our sympathy I will not accept them. So no "cancer mums with cancer kids", no "terminally ill fans", no "ordinary person in a coma because of a car crash". This also counts for brothers/sisters/children of notable people - unless they are so notable that every relative is also notable by default, like the House of Windsor, or maybe the Bush family. Unfortunately, it is me who will decide if the person is famous enough. Previous BBC coverage will usually convince me. Also, please, no football player in a non-professional league, or any other name that kind of exploits the rules. Anybody that gets rejected in the DDP would also be rejected here! However: "Oldest Person of XYZ" will always be allowed - even a completely irrelevant person (in the grand scheme of things) will be accepted if they are the oldest person of their country, or last survivor of World War II, Korean War, etc... Usually those people do not give many points, but maybe 5 pts is better than zero? And they are of a certain "historic relevance", you know President Tyler's grandson, and such. Anyway, I will allow them. RULE CHANGE: You can submit as many as 10 subs. It was a little stressful for me to ask for substitutions in case of disqualifications. So, if you think that some of your names stretch the fame definition, just put in some more subs. I will make use of them automatically. I will probably not ask you what you want to do, because it might be unfair to ask for more subs after all the teams are in. Substitution phase: Up until the beginning of the 1st of July 2023 GMT you may switch 5 old people still alive for 5 new ones for whom all the above rules also apply. RULE CHANGE: You can make use of the 5 substitutions whenever you like, until July starts. But once you decide to switch out picks, they cannot score anymore. When is a hit a hit: If the person permanently dies in 2023 (GMT!) and their death gets noticed in written form by qualifying media outlets within 2023 or the first seven days of 2024. The QO rules are: Everything accepted by the Derby Dead Pool 2023 plus The New York Times. Your host: I will also submit a team and will do so two posts below around December 15th and hide the names with "XXXXX XXXXX" and reveal them on January 1st. Main reason for not already submitting right now is that I want to avoid the situation of 2019, when I ran out of subs and then filled the gaps with "new" names. I will also make use of the substitution window, but only use 2 names. After all, there's always a pretty broad consensus of a couple of names (example 2019: Ivan Milat, Michael Sleggs, Tom Long), so I wouldn't steal anyone's names by picking those who are universally known anyway. Also, I will substitute comfortably before the end of the deadline, so you can see my two names. I will not read your submission emails until January 1st (I think you can check that) to prevent the impression that I might take a name from your posts for other deadpools. So if I'm unsure about a name of yours, I will talk to you in the first week of January. If you post your team right in this thread, you save me some work but also give away names. If you pm me, please make sure that I know what the mail is about in the header "Death By Numbers", "Team submission" or something like that. If you have other questions, you can also ask in this thread!

    Ideas and possibilities for 2024

    Do you remember "Joe the plumber", the model conservative blue-collar figure in the Obama vs McCain campaign? Well, he wasn't a plumber and his real name is Samuel Wurzelbacher. AND, Twitter tells me that he has been diagnosed with stage 3 pancreatic cancer. The classic media haven't picked up on it yet, news is a day old. There is some fundraiser (of course, there is) but I cant post the link on mobile.

    John Mills, a former dentist, has been awarded an MBE for founding the charity Vasculitis UK in 2010. He's also terminally ill (of vasculitis I guess), and was too ill to attend the award in London.

    Video Game Nerds

    This thread is for deaths related to the video/console/computer/mobile game industry, i.e. designers, composers, all kinds of programmers or even popular players of certain games. I thought this branch of popular culture was missing here. Of course, this industry is relatively new, so people haven't really started to die away of age, but maybe it starts soon, and people can die for other reasons as well. I'll start with two deaths: James Storey, graphical designer for Duke Nukem 3d, is dead at 41: http://www.vg247.com/2015/06/03/duke-nukem-3d-artist-passes-away-aged-41/ No reason was given. Also, Kirill Prokovsky, composer of music for the Divinity games, especially for Divinity: Original Sin is dead at 53: http://gamingbolt.com/divinity-original-sin-composer-passes-away No reason was given.
