2012 Dead Pool new [re: ]  

Hay prodigious TWfers! Time to start a new Dead Pool!

Begin to compile, and let's do 12 this year.

Our CS rules (perhaps no death shall pass ambiguously this year):

1. Post 'em and leave 'em by end of day, your time zone, 1/10/2012.

2. Celeb must die between posting deadline and 11:59:59, 12/31/2012, according to the time zone the celeb dies in.

3. Score = 100 - celeb's age.
So yes, if you choose a celeb over 100 and he dies you'll wind up in the hole! That would be like a grave! Then you have to dig your way out!

4. If you pick a celeb with a terminal illness who dies, your point value for that celeb's death will be decreased by 1/2. And you will be called gay. Whether you like it or not. If you state you are not gay, then 2 more points will be deducted from your score.

"Drug-related" is not a terminal illness.

5. Moderator's Choice: Any death caused by machinery will earn 7 bonus points. Machinery is broadly defined and may include ice-skate blades, trains, commercial blenders, swordfish probosci and conveyor belts, but not guns. Deaths occuring due to guns are scored regularly.

6. Deaths caused by posters do not count. Don't try it.

7. Most of all TWfer boys and girls, have fun playing! It's a game!

2. Leonard Nimoy
3. Margaret Thatcher
4. Lindsay Lohan
5. Radovan Karadžić
6. Mariah Carey
7. Ringo Starr
8. Jean Paul Belmondo

Prizzy, my only issue with your list is that no one would mourn any of those passings. The best thing about this game is the chance that you'll hear about the passing of a beloved cultural icon on the radio and immediately yell out "YES! 47 points!!!" to the embarrassment of one and all.

ohro, if Leonard Cohen dies, I am holding you responsible.

Dead Pool Grand Champeen: whoever has the most points

Dead Pool Grand Poobah: whoever predicts the greatest number of corpses

The fine print: Late entries accepted with one fewer choice per month (eg. if you list in February you get 11 picks, March = 10 picks. And so on. Terminally ill choices no longer accepted cause they're prolly sicker now.)

In reply to:

Marquis: Prizzy, my only issue with your list is that no one would mourn any of those passings.


Right, but I've expressed my distaste for these types of competitions before. I thought I was joking then, but perhaps I wasn't. Perhaps the whole point of this competition is to figure out where you stand religiously. I mean, given the slime on my list, I'd quite happily burn my nominees at the stake, Inquisition-style, if given the chance.

Or perhaps my choices were selected because I think we're due a spate of dictator deaths. Or a combination of the two. You decide!

In reply to:

Ohro: Dead Pool Grand Poobah: whoever predicts the greatest number of corpses


Bah. I reckon if any two of my list peg it on the same day I should win outright.

As I've been drinking I'm not going to bother Googling your picks prior to this question, but were your Katy Perry and Russell Brand votes chosen before or after their divorce? Either way is just as humorous to me.

News of their divorce reminded me how much I wanted them to die, or at least how much I couldn't care less if they died. I thought perhaps they might kill each other in some 'war of the roses' style fiasco. You never know...

Top Gun director Tony Scott is dead at 68. He jumped 365 feet to his death? Bummer. Early reports claim that he had been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour.

Although I haven't been impressed by much of anything Tony Scott has directed for a while, he's got some good, underrated films on his filmography - Beverly Hills Cop II, The Last Boy Scout, and True Romance. Crimson Tide was an OK flick, if memory serves. And Scott directed Bowie in The Hunger.
