Daylight Savings Deadpool

Recommended Posts

So today is Daylight Savings Time in the USA (95% of it), and we all fall back an hour.
Let's celebrate this ridiculous patronage to the cycle of the sun-and-moon with a quick and dirty deadpool!

For this year, DST:
Begins 3 November 2019 
Ends 8 March 2020

Rules couldn't be simpler.
I want 4 names (representing the slightly more than four months of DST) that you personally have already used in any deadpool this year [PRIOR TO AUGUST 1] (including DDP or alt obits, which are off-site / also includes any SUBS you listed anywhere).  A deadpool means a deadpool, not one of our fun games like guessing which oldest world leader will die (I'm posting this now, cuz there's always someone....)

That's it. 
Winning: First to clear the board wins. Game ends on 8 March 2020 though.  So most hits wins.  
Tie-breakers:
1. Designate a Joker.  If your joker dies first in time before anyone you are tied with, you win.
2. If two or more teams somehow have miraculously had Jokers die on the same day, we will look at the 2nd person to die, first in time wins.  And so on.  If no Jokers are involved we look to first person who died, first in time wins, and so on.
3, QO:  Let's say that the name is subject to the deadpool from which you extracted it, obviously using the least restrictive should they be found in more than one.  To that end, if you would be so kind as to say the name of the DP you found the name from, save us all some time.  Much thanks.
*For example: President Jimmy Carter (Death By Numbers)


Koppish?
I see no reason to PM, seeing as there are only 24 or so hours to get this rolling.  So just post when you want.  If you PM me though, I will post for you after I make a lovely compiled list.  It being the weekend, let's give everyone till 11:59pm GMT, 3 Nov 2019.  So really launching on 4 Nov for the sake of argument.  Next year we will have our act together.

Hopefully we have a dozen or so entries.

** Rather than dates I am simply designating order of death, so 1st (1), 2nd (2) and so on.  So we can see at quick glance who wins any tie-breaker.
Jokers will have their own separate numbering system as they trump everything else.  IOW if your Joker dies first, you own the tie-breaker against everyone. SC

The idea was to get people to have fun with leftovers, and I should have been more explicit re: dps.  I didn't want recent 5-4-3-2-1 picks at all, but it is what it is.  Not everyone plays that and so are at a disadvantage.  But it's ok this time.  Maybe limit it to 'Pre-July' so in line with DL Cup entries.  Anyway, just thinking out loud for next time.

Angie Douthit (*Joker) [ABC dp]

Bill Freehan (Joker's Dead dp, DDP, all of em really)
Kane Tanaka (DL Poker Tourney)
William Frankland (Joker's Dead dp)

I can change if you want...

 

In terms of leftovers, I would probably replace Sharif and Gray with Paul Volcker and Jean-Louis Trintignant (both DDP).

I just picked the first deadpool to come to mind, I've reused the names in a fair few including Poker and Windy pools... Hmm, should have kept Blackmore quiet as a DDP unique in retrospect...

If you don't mind.  You do not have to.  Like I said I should have cut it off same as Cup (July 31 I think).  My bad.  I appreciate it though.

Just a quick note @gcreptile as you see I amended 'the rules' to say prior to Aug 1.  It's not the dp being chosen, that is fine.  It's the recency I was hoping to avoid is all.  This isn't a 'research' dp, just the opposite.  Look at old teams and throw a few names you can't believe are breathing. Or putting them in order if you could do it over again (and here is where we do it over again).

Marking down his name in permanent marker.... lol.
Funny thing is I intentionally made it so that we WOULDN"T have to expose present research for upcoming new year dps.  Just rebooting 2019 names you mad at for being alive still.   Give them a gentle reminder they should be dead.  But hey, you are the master of your 2020 DDP destiny alls I can say.

So I have made a wee spreadsheet. Obviously lots of time for people to enter.  Just making a notation that everyone above this post is officially in the game.
Of course I didn't leave space to put the spreadsheet :rolleyes: so I'll probably just edit the OP and attach therein.

Not to be too pedantic, but Daylight Saving Time ends on 3 November, and begins again on 8 March 2020.  Standard time resumes on 3 November.  Whether a timekeeping convention that is in effect for less than half of the year ought to be referred to as "standard" is another matter.

 

Carry on.

For some reason, these picks all have an asterisk by their name on my DOD (Docket of Doom).   At one point I thought they were brilliant. Let's see if they come through now.

Basically the intent of this dp, to look back at the errors of our ways lol.  I almost went with Kumar fwiw.  Great minds?  Or dolts?

Just switch the names, it's okay! Thanks!
