Last but not least, I updated the list of longest surviving picks on Page 6. There are 18 fresh cadavers and a title change - Charles Aznavour, originally a 1990 alumnus, was the 10th hit of 2018.

 

All three threads are rolling from now on.

 

Promise I won't bump this thread for a wee while :lol:

Brilliant work, Clorox. Must've taken a lot of time and effort to make this. Leah's points is higher than I had expected, although her debut year (2017) had a record of 17 different polls.

I notice that with Jacques Chirac's death, there's now a 26-year-gap in between the tenures of living French presidents (Giscard D'Estaing to Sarkozy). Definitely the longest gap for French presidents, but that begs the question of what the longest gap is, past or present, worldwide?

38 years between Carter and Obama

 

48 ( 49 soon) years seems to be the best I can find.  That's is ex Chancellor's of Austria.  Sebastian kurz  33 and franz vranitzky 81 soon to be 82.

I think DI is talking about the gap between the tenures of living presidents, not their overall ages

Yeah, for instance there's currently a gap of 12 years in the US since Carter is alive but Reagan and Bush Sr immediately after him are dead.

 

The US record seems to be about 12 years and a month, as Millard Fillmore outlived Franklin Pierce, James Buchanan, and Abraham Lincoln. Herbert Hoover, who outlived FDR, held a shorter gap than Fillmore by mere days.

Ahh right.  Completely skipped over the word tenures  and just saw 'gap' and 'living'.

Surely one of the shortest periods between Knighthood and death.......!

 

 

So, when I was doing some work research I found a strong contender for this in the Herald archives. Sir Tam Galbraith, former Glasgow Tory MP (my family MP at one point in fact before my birth) was knighted 31st December 1981 when known to be gravely ill, and died 48 hours later. (Willz might recall this - Glasgow had 3 by-elections due to death in about 2 years!)

 

Decided the Doddy thread was too dead to resurrect, but that this factoid was interesting enough to bring up on forum. So here it is.

Not sure, around those couple of years it really was head down in the books, then heading to Strathclyde Uni during that period. Remember Jenkins getting elected though.

 

Was more worried about being conscripted for the Falklands if it got out of hand. No way was I fighting for Thatcher's war! :lol:

Interesting teaser about 5 year survival rates, although they are from people diagnosed in 2010 and 2011.  Prostate cancer almost at 99% after 5 years!  That's good news if you are a dude.

https://www.ksby.com/news/national-news/national-cancer-center-researchers-find-survival-rates-for-different-types-of-cancer

An interesting side note- I tried to find the original research article for more details,  but the only National Cancer Centre I could find is in Singapore. There is a National Cancer Institute,  but I couldn't find the article there.  A more suspicious person might think this is Fake News. Can't believe I just said that.:facepalm:

Not such good news if you are my old school friend who's just been given an incurable stage 4 bladder cancer diagnosis where I think the 5 year survival rate is about 5%.

 

I think the other thing that survival rates hide is the change in quality of life that cancer can bring whether you survive or not.

Also we're getting better at finding cancers earlier, there's no evidence anybody actually lives any longer - just that they live longer after being diagnosed.

 

Let that sink in.

Hohoho, Merry Christmas. Here's the DL picks list from 2016 of types of pick, survival rates, likely future contenders, DL longevity, etc all updated to 24th December 2019.

 

Spoiler tagged due to length...

 

Spoiler


 "Each year we hear people say "Oh so and so should be on the list" and it made me wonder if we took the years and ages of every person in a profession to be on the Deathlist itself, could we then extrapolate the type of people who might be considered in 2017 and beyond? Almost certainly not, but never mind. "

Answer in 2019 - it gave a ball park but not precision. Anyhow, on with the update...

 

So I collated a list of debuts on Deathlist, separated by professions, and with the age they were given on the front page for their debut.

 

ie:

  121. 2019 – Jerry Stiller, 92

  123. 2019 – Sidney Poitier, 92

  124. 2019 – Tony Britton, 95

Average – 1987-2019- 83.8%

Average – 2010-2019 -64.2% (down 20% on 2007-16)

 

Verdict: Modern Deathlist still tends to go for the older actor. Only 3 picks have been under the age of 80 since 2014, and all 3 died (although Harper and Bracknell lasted a while). A glance suggests that the age of 90 is the lower limit for Age Related Picks in recent years. Those under it tended to have dementia or cancer, or are Ed Asner. Otherwise, you are looking for people born 1930 and earlier for 2020.

 

Survival Rate – 12/42 for deadly debuts since 2009.

Five Year Survival Rate (not including 2016-19 debutants): 39%

 

Potential Deathlist future picks in next five years: Gene Hackman, Clint Eastwood, Patricia Routledge, Mark Eden, Christopher Plummer, Max von Sydow, Geoffrey Palmer. The Tony Britton pick opens the door for John Nettleton.

 

Thoughts: The Deathlist committee had a nose for aged actresses about to snuff it. Maureen O'Hara, Lauren Bacall, Luise Rainer and Elaine Stitch all survived less than 20 months from their Deathlist debut. This was ominous news for Mary Tyler Moore and Liz Smith, but less so for canoe aficionado Prunella Scales. June Brown, Honor Blackman and Betty White have also put a spanner in this coincidence of late.  They like a thespian just turned 80 odd, with a history of ill health, demons or frailty. Looking at those potentials for 2020 include Christopher Timothy, Martin Sheen and aging David Jason, none of whom seem like jumping on the DL quite yet…

 

There's always been a heavy flow of new thespians so at least 2 new spots in 2020 will be taken by them.

Verdict: Deathlist has a strong streak in the last decade of picking out doomed sportsmen. The cancer riddden (or otherwise ailing) sportsperson has been a long standing vein of success for the Deathlist since its foundation. A mere 15%  of all sports people picked prior to 2016 are still with us, and that includes some duff picks like Peter Shilton and Leo Beenhakker making that survival stat look more impressive than it is.

 

Survival Rate (last decade) 8/14

Five Year Survival: 47.3%

 

Potential Future Picks: Well, the rest of the 1966 England squad have a decent shot, especially Geoff Hurst (least ill of the lot?) and the Charlton brothers. Jackie Stewart another shoo in but again, not quite his time yet. A lack of MND/ALS sufferers might see a route for a Doddie Weir, but new and depressingly younger sportsmen are coming down with that every month. We're still only just reaching the point where most of the name footballers of the 60s/70s are starting to reach old age. Pele and Franz Beckenbauer have potential. But then, so did Cruyff.

 

Thoughts: Golf and cricket seem on the wane here, and football is in. Although they do love their boxers, so watch out for the Lean Mean Fat Reducing Grilling Machine to debut before long.

  67. 2019 – Bob Hawke, 90

  68. 2019 – Mikhail Gorbachev 88

Verdict: Another steady line of Deathlist picks. It seems if you were in charge of a big enough country, and you live long enough, you'll find your spot at some time. Though out with the US/UK, it does help to be noteworthy. “Valery d'Estang is pushing 90, but who remembers him?” is what I said in 2016, and guess who did remember him, but the Deathlist Cmme! World Leaders tend to have staying power. Once they make the list, they tend to bed sit until they snuff it.

 

Survival rate (2010-19): 6/15

Five Year Survival rate (1987-2015) - 60%

 

Possible Future Picks: Most of these future picks are too young just now – the oldest living PM is John Major at 76. The oldest Presidents (after Jimmy) are that spate of 73 year olds, and you have to assume Billy wont make it to DL picking age. Crown Prince Salman and Mahmoud Abbas are maybes, and you never know when the Cmme will open drols big box of immortal dictators. Jean Chretien is mid-80s but very dull, and we’re still a while off the likes of John Howard and Gerhard Schroder being old or frail enough for contention.

Thoughts: Not enough of them. Although if they do get picked, best to read about them fast.

Survival: 0%  (0/33)

Future Picks: Short of Ill Health, Writers don't tend to show up until 90 or later, despite us apparently being doomed on the front page. Colin Dexter and Judith Kerr were never picked, but Len Deighton, John le Carre and if you like a ripping yarn, Clive Cussler and Jack Higgins are all still going.

  64. 2019 – Shane MacGowan, 62

  65. 2019 – Ginger Baker, 80

  66. 2019 – Johnny Clegg, 66

 


 

Thoughts: They tend to show up for health reasons. Harry Belafonte and Cleo Laine  are the only two in the last 5 years who debuted due to being ancient. Name music people or really ill relatively known ones, and if you can mix those two... In recent years, the 2016 effect has come into play, by which I mean the Cmme have overloaded with late 1930s to mid 1940s music A listers to try and catch those the encore runs out on. The success in this route has been shown by the fact that in the last three years, the debutant music hits have been the 3 young guys with cancer, and Ginger Baker.

 

Survival: 33%

Five Year Survival: 46% (rating improved by counting Any One Beatle as one...)

 

Potential Future Picks: Any medium star who gets terminal cancer given Clegg. Grace Slick, the Rolling Stones, Macca and Ringo, Tom Jones, Nancy Sinatra, Simon and Garfunkel, Dylan, the living Beach Boys, Elton John, Led Zeppelin, Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, Herb Alpert, Mikis Theodorakis, Burt Bacharach, Petula Clark, John Williams, Yoko Ono, Willie Nelson, Frankie Valli, Pat Boone, Shirley Bassey, Bill Withers, Cliff, Smokey Robinson, Crosby/Stills/Nash and Young, Chubby Checker, Carole King – not to be facetious, but the list of A list music people on that radar is bloody endless!

Rolf Harris is a valid suggestion, but I'd add David Hockney.

So, I was a bit bored, and was trying to think of ideas. Then something popped into my head. Why not make a list of names that were picked by the winning team of each year. Doesn’t matter if they died that year, lived, didn’t get a QO, or (in one case) die before ddp action but wasn’t known until afterwards. As long as they appear on the winning team as mentioned on the ddp site (so no Mark Crispin, for example), they’re fine. So the list goes as follows...

 

1. John Andretti

An interesting thing that came in my head: how many countries have your DDP hits come from. So far, I have gotten 10 countries from my hits: UK, US, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland, Iceland, South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Syria. Wonder if I’ll get any new countries next year...

Since then France, Pakistan, Indonesia, and the Netherlands can be added to the list...

17 as far as I can tell, with Canada, Cuba, Hungary, Iceland, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Romania, Syria, UK, USA, South Africa, Venezuela, and Zimbabwe all delivering at least one hit. Astonishingly have yet to get a hit from Australia!

 

21 countries now. Pakistan, France, and Australia added to the tally last year, Oman this. There's also potential for Denmark and South Korea this year.

Predictor asked a while back who had received the most votes across all the "nth death of 20xx" polls. Well, here's the answer. Brackers is our strongest survivor, and with a bit of luck she could be the GOAT. She's beaten Kirk in under 3 years!

 

In a twist no one saw coming, Kirk overtook Leah by one vote before proceeding to die the next day.
