Fu Da Ren's execution scheduled for June the 7th, which may be too late for me. Anyway he has suffered a nasty fall in Switzerland and doctors fear he won't make it to the date.

Yeah, I'd be amazed if 7th is a winning performance

 

Of course, he could always choose to cheat the exectutioner!

Another source adfirms it is scheduled for June the 5th, at 11 a.m. Still too late, as either Hiseman or Cappotelli will be dead by tomorrow.

Well done. Sorry she didn't qualify for the Cup, but you knew she was a good pick for this.

Well I had some pretty good statistics in my favour.

 

Prior to this year, 16.66% of podium positions were taken by the mothers of pop stars who achieved much success in the 1990's. You can't argue with those statistics.

Aye, so her son's social media tribute makes clear she died on Friday (1st June)

 

That's dead pooling DC - respect!!

 

Be PM'ing yers soon to see whether you'd like the morally acceptable charity donation as a prize or summat a bit more along the line of a fitting gift of consumer goods (like maybe the most recent Manic's album). Incidentally, it's called Resistence is Futile - summat that 20 other competitors hereabouts might be thinking.

But let's keep this thread gannin', eh

 

Seriously, the tonnage of death we can snag by Midsummer's day will be interesting - some talent on that masterlist to be sure.

 

I reckon we could do at least a third of it by close of play on 21st.

2nd year in a row missing this deadpool. I'll blame it on myself this time and not the British timezone difference.

Never too soon to look ahead to MMMDP 2019, seems The Office of National Statistics says the average security guard dies at the age of 62 - when the average life expectancy in the UK is 79.2 years for men and 82.9 years for women.

 

So I’m going to keep a list of security guards in 65+ age bracket.

:salute: Congrats The Deadcow

 

 

And my advice for next year,avoid getting your pick in right away

You have a 66.6% chance to win if you pick 7th,meanwhile picks 1-6 have yielded 1st place 0% of the time

So, firstly - let's give DC credit for going the morally admirable route of asking for a charity donation. The recipients at his requset being this lot: https://www.mermaidsuk.org.uk/

Obviously, they'd take a donation from anyone else who looked at their site and felt motivated. Confirmation of the prize payment is below:

 

Thank you for making a donation using MyDonate.

For your records, here's a summary of your donation:

Amount:  £10.00
Gift Aid: £2.50
 
Charity:  Mermaids UK
Donation Reference:  3197521


Thanks again

The MyDonate team on behalf of Mermaids UK

Anyone with a history of - say - significant achievement in local football and/or being a stalwart of a charity or church might well snare a local paper obit

Jon Hiseman still alive as of 3 hours ago.

 

Quote

Hi all - I’m new here, I hope you don’t mind my posting. I can’t share decades of stories about Jon’s music but Jon's daughter Ana added me to the group and I’ve been genuinely moved by the posts here, the passion shared for Jon's music, and the admiration for the man himself. So I thought I’d share my experience. As a photographer I’ve worked with Ana on her music releases a couple of times over the years, but last year I was asked to produce the promotional photography for Jon's JCM band.

 

The post goes on to repeatedly refer to him in the present tense. I don't think Ana would be adding new people to the group if Jon had just died. A German rock magazine has reported that he died on 1st June but this forum is the only source I can find for that. Not a reliable source.
