Next year is gonna be tough on this front. If all major candidates die (Prince Phil, Bob Dole, Henry Kissinger, Pierre Cardin, Dick Van Dyke, Leslie Phillips, Jimmy Carter, Desmond Tutu, Prunella Scales, Bob Barker, Betty White) then you will only reach 73 points.

Just noticed I did the math wrong. Thanks for pointing that out.

Update to Bucket Kicker's stats: with 104 more days this year, and being 4 deaths short of a record 18, the required rate for a new record would now be a pretty average one death every 26 days.  (The rate so far this year having been one death every 19 days).  Imho, once you factor in winter mortality and the COVID effect, the odds on a new record have shifted to better than even.

 

Update to this with our 15th death: 62 days left in the year, average of one death every 20.7 days needed to get a new record. Seems unlikely, but winter ❄️ mortality plus second wave of COVID means probably not that unlikely.

 

Oh, and the "total years on Death List of those that have died in the year" record is now thoroughly broken with a full two winter months to go.

Just out of interest, what are all of the rank names someone can achieve in DL forum?

 

I know it starts:

 

Spammer - 1 post

Pointless ranter -3 posts

Morbid interest - 5

Hatchet man - 15

Sniper - 75

Shipman - 250

Executioner - 500

Assassin - 750

Post Twunt - 1000

I need to get a life - 1500

I REALLY need to get a life - 2000

I have no life - 2500

Twunt master - 3000

Uber Twunt - 4000

...

 

Is there a maximum rank or does it just keep going?

 

 

If there's a maximum nobody's ever told me, and - fuck knows - they might have had to!  Tbh I can't recall at what number of posts I became a Dedicated Cumbrian Corpse Hound, or Summat

 

But, I can't see them awarding that moniker to anyone else in reward for long-service and copious posting.

Am I right in my (30-second google) belief that Tanzania is the world's largest country that lacks a DDP hit?

Interesting! 

Wikipedia has a nice helpful list:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Tanzanians

 

They also count Freddie Mercury, by the way.

 

If I had to guess, Tanzania's status is going to change relatively soon.

Even checking for colonial babbies who were born there when it was called Zanzibar, no names come up. April Olrich, ballerina and character actress who died in 2014, wasn't a DDP pick, neither was Rob-Roy-actor-turned-Labour MP Andrew Faulds, who went in 2000.

Looking back I have a feeling 8000 = zombie

 

Can anyone confirm?
