2010 Dead Pool new [re: ]  

Alright, I dropped the ball this year but since nobody picked it up...

Post your picks! Tell your friends! Those of you queers on Facebook/Myspace/Twatface send out the word to your TW friends!

I think a week is enough time, don't you? Unless there are several objections let's make the deadline January 7th.

And let's settle the issue of terminally ill picks. I still think that if the person is publicly known to have any sort of terminal illness at the time of selecting them their point value should be cut in half. Or we should dock one point from the total for each terminally ill pick that doesn't die by the end of the year. Thoughts?

Let's rock this shit.

Your idea about deducting the points of terminals who don't end up dying from the contestant's point total is one I thought of this past year when reading the 2009 pool. Let's do it!

I'm picking ten people who look like they need to die soon:

Old George Bush
Jimmy Carter

To Boldy Go
William Shatner
Leonard Nimoy

Settling the controversey new [re: Monkeyboy]  

Let's settle this debate really quick. Whatever the result of the poll is by Jan 8th is the answer.


If someone picks a terminally ill person...
...that pick's points are automatically reduced in half.
...the picker forfeits one point automatically from their total (regardless of whether or not the person dies).
...no difference. It shouldn't matter.

In case it isn't self-evident, the one point reduction on b would be for each terminally ill pick. Just clarifying because, well, you've seen the idiots this site can attract.

Re: Settling the controversey new [re: Monkeyboy]  

What I would do is say that if your terminally ill pick does not die, then you must subtract the difference between 100 and the person's age from your point total. For example, if Swayze had hung on into 2010, then everyone who had him in their 2009 pool would have 43 points subtracted from the points they'd accrued on their successful picks.

The upshot would be that your terminal picks had better kick it or else you would assuredly lose out on the fantastic prize.

Among your options, though, cutting the point total in half was the more punitive, so I chose it. Taking a solitary point away for each terminal pick would not likely impact one's total enough to dissuade from playing the odds.

Back from the dead? new [re: power2charm]  

p2c! Lovely to see you and great picks. I love the categorization, and you've got a good mix of long shots for points and more predictable options. I went with all likely to die, but some more obscure so it's less likely someone else will have them.

On the "what to do with terminally ill" picks debate, I like the idea of cutting the points in half if the person dies AND subtracting the number of points one would have gotten if the person doesn't die. That way people are actively dissuaded from picking the terminally ill.

Let the games continue...

WW! We had the same thought about Shatner, I noticed. I feel that my best shot for points is Lohan, who looks skeletal. I was surprised that nobody else had her listed.

I don't think Ghostlove should get full points for Byrd. First, he's only a US senator, and if Sysiyo came in here with a list of Finnish pols, I'd be pretty disgusted. Presidents and Prime Ministers only, please?

Also, everyone knows Byrd is one foot in the grave. They wheel him in for the crucial votes and reward him with an IV. Ridiculous!

1) I didn't create the idea of a dead pool and "100 - (age)" is a pretty common way of doing it.

2) As a "Super Genius" you should know that it's pretty rare for people - especially famous people - to live past 100.

3) Anyone who picks someone older than 100 is an asshole, pansy, cuntface who really would deserve the negative points.

As a side note, I find it "interesting" when anyone who claims to posses the mental wonderfulness that you do uses emoticons. Especially the tonguey one. I can't think of one here which is possibly more demeaning to the author's mental capacity. Unless it is used ironically - and you've shown that you have no ability for that kind of "silliness." Except for the larger, meta sense that seems to be lost on you as well.

She knows who is killing her new [re: power2charm]  

I almost picked Lohan but I have a feeling that she'll be around long enough to self destruct for the next generation. I see her as becoming a strange hybrid of Zsa Zsa Gabor and Courtney Love, appearing on some post-apocolyptic version of Match Game. We'll have to explain to our grandchildren that, no, she actually once showed a lot of promise in the remake of The Parent Trap. Then they'll ask "which one?"

No, Paris will go before Lohan. People who come from that sort of cesspool-ish background are survivors. It's the spoiled cunts like Paris who drop quickly. Once life stops bending over backwards for them they lose any "fight" that they think they have. All it will take for Paris to finally snap is for her to hit that inevitable wall, looks-wise. Then she'll look like a Muppet, have a cavernous, chapped vagina, won't be able to control her bowels due to years of anal sex, wonder why nobody wants to ask her about the voice of the old man that she did for All Dogs Go To Heaven VI several years ago, and realize that, no, she never was anywhere as interesting as people acted like she was back when they wanted to fuck her. Then it's all sleeping pills and Smirnov for Paris! Haha!! Take that, you bitch!!

I gave up on listing actor Jopie Heesters because Monkeyboy threatened to withdraw a point for every year Jopie is older than 100, an he turned 106 last December. Jopi, not MB.

I say voting for Heesters or Keef should give extra points in the case of their unlikely death, as they have proved that they live on where others would easily have passed away.

With Barbara Billingsley and Tom Bosley dying within days of each other, maybe it's time to create a "Old-Sitcom-Parents-Dead-Pool" subsection.

Ariana Foster (a.k.a Ari Up, lead singer of The Slits), has died at the age of 48. The news was posted on John Lydon's website (Ari is Lydon's stepdaughter). Doesn't seem to be any more info forthcoming, other than that she died "after a serious illness."

The Slits are a band I just got into and it is amazing how young she was when she started (14) and how good they were. What is freaky is I just out of the blue looked up her bio from a few pages the night before she died and I had no idea she was sick. A real original, she is.

Leslie Nielsen's dead.

Jesus, it's going to be depressing watching Airplane! when you realise that almost all of the major players are now dead - Stephen Stucker, Lloyd Bridges, Robert Stack, Peter Graves, and now Leslie Nielsen. Oh well, at least Robert Hays, Julie Hagerty and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar are still kicking around.

Actually, considering that Peter Graves, Barbara Billingsley and Leslie Nielsen all kicked the bucket this year, 2010 is not a good year for Airplane! alumni.

What a pisser of a thing to happen in the 30th anniversary year of The Empire Strikes Back - Irvin Kershner, who directed that movie, has died, aged 87. 2010 is also the 20th anniversary of RoboCop 2, also directed by Kershner (but not quite as fondly remembered ).

I think the real George Lucas died sometime in the mid-80s and a wobble-necked shill has taken his place since then.

On December 30, 2010 it was announced that Bobby Farrell had passed away at the age of 61.
The singer was found dead in a hotel room in St.Petersburg, Russia, where he had been performing.

In a bizarre coincidence, Rasputin himself, the namesake of one of boney M's biggest hits, died in St. Petersburg on December 29, 1916.

Additional Entry new [re: Diamond Frog]  

I just noticed that Michael Been died in 2010:

"Michael Been died on August 19, 2010 after suffering a heart attack backstage at the Pukkelpop music festival in Hasselt, Belgium, where he was working as sound engineer for his son's band." (Wikipedia)

Maybe some of you will rmember his band The Call which belonged to the better part of 80s music. The album "Reconciled" (1986) was their biggest success with the song "I Still Believe" being a minor hit. Peter Gabriel (with whom they toured), Jim Kerr (Simple Minds) and Robbie Robertson (The Band) guested on that album.

Is that the same "I Still Believe" that's in the movie Lost Boys?

Wiki says:

"I Still Believe" was re-recorded by singer/multi-instrumentalist and long-time Tina Turner sideman Tim Cappello for the 1987 movie The Lost Boys."

I have never heard it.
