Erm, well, we already have "Shadow Lists" and "Crowdsourced Deathlist" threads, so I don't see the point in this.

 

Also, yes, I think I'm better than the committee. They got 1 hit on their first list, I got 6. I had the advantage of modern technology during my first attempt, they had the advantage of not being a 14 year old dumbass.

OK. Stick yer 50 here then. Not pointless, too many people screaming out 'Why wasn't he/she on the list' Now's your chance to see how easy it is ;-)

The 'committee' will just whore some more names off of various sites to replace the ones that have gone this year.

On the face of it, they have about as much interest in dead pooling as Bill Cosby has in shagging women who are not unconscious.

Through the night and after a number of drinks I assume the committee's judgement is sound enough to win a bet or two but I don't know. They might have an hour of clarity before the beers and the cheers begin. First beer doesn't count.

On a scale of St.Theresa to Paul Gascoine on a bender to Peter Adamson in his council bedsit how inebriated were the committee at the time of selection?

Do you have subs in case your picks snuff it before 2016?Also if Crowe dies tomorrow but it has already gone midnight in New Zealand which year would he be counted in.I presume 2016 but just wondering.I used to think it was easier until I did a shadow list myself.

1) Shadow Lists don't have jokers, just rankings 1-50

2) We haven't thought about that, probably not.

The Committee are amateurs.

I guarantee both 6 hits in 6 weeks as well as more hits than DL or I won't post 2017.

While I posted my list with actual SICK people they'll be running out hackneyed popular names.

Brilliant post.

14 names out of 50 and Anwar Sadat was president of Egypt and died in 1981 and Dahl died in 1990.

Apart from that, it was shite.
