    DL Prediction Game 2019

    Welcome to this fine competition to predict the frontpage of this site: The DeathList Prediction Game 2019! In 2015 our very dear Vaagheid started the DL Prediction Game. After 3 years of hosting this competition he decided to retire. And because I really like the game, I've taken it as your new host. But what is it all about? Not that hard: What do you think the official DeathList 2019 will look like? Which celebrities will be chosen by the Committee in which order? Please tell us by picking 50 celebrities listing them from No.1 to No. 50. There also will be a scoring system: +10 points for the exact position +5 points if the person is on the DL 2019 but 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 positions away from the original position +4 points if the person is on the DL 2019 but 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10 positions away from the original position +3 points for every newcomer who also entered the DL 2019 +2 points for every returnee who entered the DL again +1 point if the person is on the DL 2019 but more than 10 positions away from the original position 0 points for unique picks -3 points for every pick who is not listed at the DL 2019 3 subs are allowed (in order of priority) who will replace a person (and position) if he or she dies before the list is online on New Year's Day. The player with the most points will win the DL Prediction Game. But even after this announcement, which will take place on New Year's Day or maybe one day later, the game is not really over because it is also exciting and interesting to see who will have the most hits at the end of 2019: Were you smarter than the Committee? Would your predicted list have won? Please send me your DL Prediction Top50 via PM until the 30th of December 2018 at 23:59 CET (mainland Europe time 22:59 GMT) or post your prediction in this thread.

    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)

    Some Marieke Vervoort News from July 1, 2019: Marieke Vervoort shares heartbreaking video: "I can't do it anymore" https://nl.metrotime.be/2019/07/01/must-read/marieke-vervoort-deelt-hartverscheurende-video-ik-kan-niet-meer/ Google translation: The former wheelchair athlete Marieke Vervoort has shared a gripping video in which she is in despair. Vervoort has been fighting for years against terrible pains caused by progressive tetraplegia, a paralyzing disease. Marieke "Wielemie" Vervoort is going through hell. The 40-year-old former wheelchair athlete, who won a gold and silver medal at the Paralympic Games, suffers from progressive tetraplegia, a disease in which her arms and legs are paralyzed. As a result, she often lives in hellish pain, just like last weekend. Vervoort shared a video in which she moans with pain and indicates that she cannot continue like this. “My pain is not fair. They can't do this to anyone. Since Saturday afternoon I have started to give up enormously. I can not handle it any longer. I can't even get a drink. I can't do anything. It doesn't work anymore. It must stop. When is everything finally okay? When will it finally stop? All promises, all beautiful words, until you ask the real truth, but then you get no answer, "it sounds. Wielemie recently filmed a documentary about her life. It will premiere in New York in December. "I am really looking forward to that, but I just don't know if I will last that long," she said earlier in Dag Allemaal.
