    8. Rush Limbaugh

    Obama's first name is misspelled on the front page text for Rush.

    Jesus Christ, Martha Stewart was much older than I thought.

    Silent Era People

    Wow, I stand corrected then. Thanks for the article. Ok, so unless he was subject to a hoax, then he won't turn 102 next month. Dunno much about Voy, but had my grandpa been in a Chaplin flick, I would've arranged for a proper obituary...

    Silent Era People

    Looks like I'm only 3 deaths away from being correct in my prediction. The youngest one don't ALWAYS become the last survivor, so don't me crap about it being an obvious guess. Btw, for a supposed great acting dynasty, the two remaining Watsons sure are some of the most reclusive retired actors ever. How many interviews have they declined from film obsessives over the years? Not a single public appearance in ages, which indicates that they're either not interested in revisiting the insignificant (let's be real here) roles they played, or they are too senile to even know what a movie is. If it's the former, then it kinda sucks that we couldn't have had more interesting last silent film survivors.

    50. Captain Tom Moore

    Not gonna lie, when the 2021 list was published on New Year's Eve, I thought his main claim to fame was being a WW2 veteran. Didn't know about the corona stuff until now. RIP.

    Larry King

    The magnitude of Larry King's fame coupled with an above-average likelihood of his imminent demise renders his omission from the list a non-negligible oversight by the DeathList committee (Est. 1987). Big miss!!!

    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)

    She was in my Hares team in 2019. But timing is everything in deathpooling so you've reaped the benefit of choosing a name that others overlooked across all competitions. Although getting a Hares hit in January is bit like getting a single coin when you aspire to become a millionaire...

    Hollywood Survivors

    We need a tier list of these GAOH survivors based on fame. Cuz people like Dame Betty Brewer are clearly not in the same stratosphere as someone like Angela Lansbury. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_living_actors_from_the_Golden_Age_of_Hollywood

    Derby Dead Pool 2021

    Wtf, 8 uniques... I see that there are still a few questionable "theme" teams. Take the random category one, for instance. Not only do the 20 celebrities have nothing in common with each other, once the randomization was done, all the names then went through an active selection process to weed out the bad ones. How the fuck is a specific selection process considered a theme team? It's one thing if you have no choice but to go with the first 20 names that come up.

    Hollywood Possibilities

    I thought that was for socio-political reasons, not biological? Regardless of race, she was a celebrity, which comes with a few advantages in terms of living standards...In any case, it worked out for you, so congrats on your 11 points.

Why on earth did I choose Eminem's mum in 2014? Why did I think that a Swede who was neither terminally ill nor famous internationally would be a good idea? And picking Carl from Family Matters just cuz Uncle Phil from Fresh Prince died a year earlier was really a winning strategy, wasn't it? And some of the picks from 2018/2019 are so obscure that I'm not convinced that they are not just auto-generated names who don't actually exist in real life. Clemens who???

    UK Singles Chart

    Think it's because the band's English Wikipedia article lacks a death date for him. Crazy that all 4 of them died in the space (heh) of just 3 years. They were not super ancient, and don't most bands have at least one person who outlives the others by some margin? Ferry Cross the Mersey was among the first 1960s songs that I was exposed to because we had a 1960s hits CD. Some of the songs in it were kinda corny (Limbo Rock, Wild Surf) but a good compilation album all in all. https://www.discogs.com/Various-Hits-Of-The-60s-VOL-2/release/13883608

    Common democratic deathlist 2021

    I might give it a go. Just have to finish this brand new invention I'm working on first. It has this round 2D-ish shape and it's designed to transport objects in a forward manner.

    Ove Johansson died on 8 April 2017, so Bob was the last survivor.

    Hares Death Pool 2021

    Forgot to pick a wildcard. Guess I'm stuck with Anand Kumar, even though he wouldn't have been among my first choices. Would've gone with someone like Kwadrans, Griggs, or Carter instead.
