    Ideas and Possibilities for 2021

    It is intertwined. It is mentioned many times that she needs money to be able to pay for housing expenses because her cancer treatment is costly. Also because her ability to work as much as she wants has been debilitated. Depends on what under control means here. The cancer is not in remission because the page uses present tense phrases like: "is now suffering with", " dealing with the pain and discomfort caused by harsh chemotherapy and cancer", " heavily involved with complex cancer issues", "too frail to sell her flat", "has suffered from 4 1/2 years of relentless Stage 4 cancer treatment" and "she's on morphine 24/7". Or maybe she's actually fine and just wants a nicer home. Edit: Didn't realize that I was in the 2021 suggestions thread. Arghton's thread bump confused me, it's like reading last week's newspaper.

    Journalist Carol Gould is still struggling financially and health-wise according to her GoFundMe page. However, Wikipedia has the following: Latest Gofundme update (6 Jun): "Carol has suffered from 4 1/2 years of relentless Stage 4 cancer treatment and the absence of regular professional earnings." It also says that she is too frail to move from her home. Yet a month later, she is back working for BBC? I don't follow British media so you guys probably know better. https://www.gofundme.com/f/assist-carol-gould-wmajor-repair-building-work

    I like the idea. Of course, you'd have to blur #8's face because of anonymity. Imagine the interview if she's the last one standing: Interviewer: "Congratulations Mrs...umm...whatever your name is. Right now, there are millions of viewers at home wondering how it feels to be the only remaining one." Anonymous: "Don't ask me any questions. Respect my privacy and leave me alone, you cunts!"

    Hares Death Pool 2021

    One hit, yet just 2 points behind someone with 4 hits, lol! Anyway, the first half of the year is just pre-season to me. I fully expect the other 24 names to die no sooner than September.

    The Dead of 2021

    Sad news in the deadpooling world as Buddy Van Horn, director of Clint Eastwood's The Dead Pool, has died at age 92. RIP.

    Ideas and possibilities 2022

    Hard to complain about her constant absence from the DL lists considering that she's still alive, but it's so weird that they refuse to select her. I mean, she ticks all the boxes for a DL listee: Old, super famous, British, etc. At this point, I wonder if they think she died years ago. Maybe they confused her with another actress like Deborah Kerr or something. Or maybe the committee just has mermaidophobia...

    Alfred's great-grandson Peter Nobel (8 Dec 1931) is still alive at age 89. He has worked for the UN as well as the Red Cross, so he is famous in his own right.

    Alt Obituaries Deadpool

    What is this death pool's USP? Why are you guys competing in it? Isn't the millions of pools yall already enter every year to satisfy your disturbing affinity for successful public figures' misery enough? Why is Alt in the name? Does the Alt Right run it or what? Isn't it dictatorial that the host can disallow picks just like that? Why is the website so amateurish, like it was created on a 10 pence budget? Does the rewarding of picking children at 25 points mean that everyone who participates in the pool is objectively morally corrupt, regardless of whether they pick a child or not?

    Thanks Adrian, but I dunno why I have a feeling that she's dead. Would it be easy to check in Scottish records if she were?

    The 6th death of 2021

    We're long overdue a female death. Since Ruth Bader Ginsburg's demise in September 2020, all DL deaths have been male: Norbert Stiles Alexander Trebek Peter Sutcliffe Valery Giscard d'Estang John Edrich Pierre Cardin Thomas Moore Leonard Spinks George Shultz Rush Limbaugh Murray Walker 11 men, that's an entire football lineup!

    Damn, for a second there, I thought Linkin Park was going down the same cursed road as Glee. Turns out it's just a random old Japanese artist.

    9. Murray Walker

    I hadn't heard of him either until he made his DL debut. Sports commentators never become household names outside their country or the language in which they commentate. Oh, and surely he deserved a better front page picture than THAT? RIP

    35. Joanne Woodward

    Theory: Joanne Woodward does NOT have Alzheimer's. The confusion stems from the 1985 TV movie Do You Remember Love, in which she played someone with that disease. If Joanne officially had it, wouldn't her Wikipedia page mention it?? I bet in reality, Joanne is healthy and sharp-minded and takes regular bike rides around the block. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Do_You_Remember_Love_(film)

    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.

    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.
