    Derby Dead Pool 2020

    Decided to do a Disney theme team for those involved with their animated feature films while Walt Disney was still alive (died in 1966, so the limit should be The Jungle Book, released in 1967). They are few enough to make DDP 2020 probably the last chance to find 20 people that are eligible. Struggling with the team name; the best I've got so far is "This Knee Ain't What It Used To Be", which is more of (an attempt at) a pun/double entendre than a nostalgic complaint, cuz Disney obviously has made many good films after Walt's death.
  2. Started researching yesterday. Unlike previous years, I want to submit my team asap instead of waiting till new year's eve. *Two are names that I have picked in previous DDPs *One is from my Deathrace 2019 list *Nine are very well-known celebs that I have never selected before *I think six/seven people fall into the "0 mentions on the forum" category *I've dropped my yearly tradition of having a supercentenarian in my team. It's a waste of a valuable slot *The Swedish quota tradition is intact, but it's not easy to find obitable Swedes who are likely to die soon

    Magicians And Hypnotists

    My knowledge of Portuguese is a bit non-existent, but apparently, Val Valentino (The Masked Magician) not only doesn't have terminal prostate cancer anymore, but is getting/got married to a Brazilian woman. I'm just waiting for the footage where he reveals how he did it. Another incredible act (at my DDP team's expense, of course). 8 July 2019: https://www.redetv.uol.com.br/atardeesua/videos/ultimos-programas/mister-m-vence-luta-contra-o-cancer-e-se-casara-com-brasileira

    Cartoonists And Animators

    One of my 2019 DDP picks was British comic book artist Glenn Fabry. Back in September 2018, it was revealed that he had lung cancer. I included him in my team, which I sent on 29 December 2018. I've just noticed right now that there had been an update on the 28th of that year regarding his illness. Turns out it was tuberculosis all along. His Wikipedia wasn't updated to this fact until February 2019. Happy for the guy, but that's one wasted pick. https://www.bleedingcool.com/2018/12/28/glenn-fabry-tuberculosis-not-lung-cancer/

    World's Oldest

    Plot twist: As scientists dig up Calment's body from her grave, they discover upon close inspection that her body is made entirely out of clay. With the help of a microscope, they notice a small inprint that says "(c) Nick Park".

    You mean advice, not hints. Can't believe he's close to 103. I genuinely thought he'd be a goner many years ago.

    I thought this guy was a dead cert for 2019. Don't believe the hype!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have 59 points, which is 16 more than my all-time record from DDP 2013. My theme team is doing all the worse (0 points).

    Deathlist's deadpool HOF

    I won the baby pool in 2017-2018. Some of you might say that that wasn't a death-related pool, but life and death are intertwined or summat.
  10. This thread should be renamed to "So, how many terminally ill cancer mums that you came across on DailyMail are in your notepad and who will you replace them with when half of them inevitably perish prior to deadline day, and please make multiple vague and cryptic posts to keep us updated because we definitely give a toss about your shortlist?"

    If Daisy Loongkoonan is never picked, then what's the point?

    Cleo Laine

    This is one of those newcomers that'll be dropped off the following year, only to never appear on the DL again and die a few years from their selection.

    Things you would love to ask.....

    Christopher Columbus: If you were looking for India, why didn't you just use a GPS? Charles Darwin: If evolution is real, then why are there still monkeys???

    Non-British Royals

    I didn't notice until now that she died in August. I remember being surprised that she was a unique pick despite her illness. May she rest in peace.

    Is there a way to see signatures when you're browsing the website on the phone? I noticed that they don't show up unless you're on a computer.

    Famous farmers and agricultural people

    There is a tv show here called "Bonde söker fru" (= farmer seeks wife) that has been airing for a baffling 13 years in a row. So basically, a disproportionate number of farmers would technically stand a chance of getting an obituary in a relatively large newspaper here in Sweden.
