2011 Dead Pool Hootennanzza

Postby Kenny Powers » Sat Oct 23, 2010 6:51 pm

Not sure why we've never had one of these running here. Seems like the right group of people for it.

The rules :

- Pick exactly 10 people with some level of fame (celebrity, politician, foreign leader, inventor, athlete, whatever) you think will die in 2011.
- Submit those picks to me via PM before 12:00am CST on 01/01/11. (I won't be here, but that's what timestamps are for.) I'll post all the picks sometime after New Year's.
- Each death is worth a single point. Most points at the end of the year (11:59pm on 12/31/11) wins all the glories.

Tiebreakers :

If people end up tied at the end of the year, then the winner will be determined by lowest average age among their correctly-predicted deads. This gives a slight reward to those bold folks that want to go young...and who knows, maybe this is the year Dakota Fanning OD's.

Picks :

You are NOT allowed to pick the following types of people --
- Those whose fame is based solely upon their age. Simply being "The oldest person in ____" don't fly here.
- Those whose fame is based solely upon their health issues. Call it a Terry Schiavo Clause.
- Those who are scheduled to be executed. Bernie Madoff is fair game (and honestly not a bad pick either), but anybody with a date circled on a calendar is out.



I think that should cover everything. The deadline is a looooooooooooooooooooong way off yet, but fuck it.
A lot of people ask me, "Kenny Powers, you're a giant superstar. You can get any woman. Have you ever paid for sex?' And the answer is yes, I have. Several times, in fact. And it's actually kinda cool. You can negotiate practically anything and sometimes, even just kind of do stuff in the moment that you never agreed to pay for and it goes by without much argument.

Bumping this because I know I'll forget to do it before the end of the year if I don't. I should have mine ready in the next week or so.

1) The Fix

...honestly, this place is too dead for this to work.

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know of any other forums that might be amenable to a migration? I mean it's awesome that Laird has kept this place up and running for so long, but I can barely even justify storing it in my bookmarks when some forums go weeks without posts...

I just mean compared to the one at SOSH (for example)...comparing 10 people's lists is bound to be pretty lame..

Well, there's a few Fix'ers (me, Matt, Mark2, maybe some others) who post pretty regularly in the Free For All at forums.footballguys.com

The risk here is that Ultimate Warrior actually does die this time, but no one older than 8 believes it.
