Bluenose

Now, I don't mean to bitch at you. But let me offer a little advice.

I've seen some web sites out there that have a points system.

They base it on 100 years old.

If the person you pick is 90, you get 100-90 = 10 points.

If the person is 35 ????  CHA CHING !!!!!!!!!!!

You get the idea.

How about that ???????????????

Now if you want to add in some additional bonus points for "non natural causes". Overdose, car

wreck, murder. Whatever............ Have at it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've seen that way of running it also.  I'm taking the "Whose line is it anyway?" approach where the points are random and don't really mean anything.  But if you want to call the cause of death I will certainly add bonus points for that.

How many would I get for hanging himself while attempting auto-erotic asphyxiation?

more point for a Hutchence than a Carradine, but either way I think everyone else will be playing catch up the rest of the year

i can see why you feel that way. Frankly, I’d venture to guess that most people feel the same. I separate death from death pool. I know that’s a difficult break to make, and it may make little sense to some, but I’m certainly not rooting for anyone to die. I don’t believe any of us are. Maybe Buccin is, that guy seems pretty sinister.

I don’t wish death upon my choices. I put Gregg Allman up there a few months before he passed, and I loved that guy. He was awesome.

People just like predicting stuff. And yeah, there’s a wicked edge to this whole thing, but that’s how some folks cope with their own loss or mortality. It can be a coping mechanism, and frankly those are often things we hide even from our own selves. Make death a normal part of life, and suddenly the subject doesn’t seem as, I dunno, unnerving?

I'm not horribly disturbed by it, but as I said before SoCalColts made a big deal of it, I was curious who was STILL interested in doing this.

What, just because I wondered how many points I'd get for predicting a David Carradine death?

Depends on the person....Donald Trump would get several hundred points I suppose.  Sol?  three and a half.

Yup, duplicates are allowed.

I added Nicholas Cage to my list, double points for dying in a car crash.

Since I lost Chuck, I’ll put up Ozzy. He’s not that old, but there are a lotta miles on him. Not sure if Sharon will let him die, though

Somehow, I think Ozzy’s on the Keith Richards plan: he’ll get progressively vampiric and scary-looking, but never die.

Do I get points for picking out Jondalin ?

I don't think you will ever let Jondalin die.
