Dead Pool help

    So we're starting up a dead pool for 2007 in the newsroom. I need to pick 10 people who will join the choir invisible in the next year. For each one I get right I get 100 points minus the person's age -- so 92 year old Gerald Ford would be worth 8 points.

    Any tips out there? I figure the obvious ones are Ford, Castro, and Ariel Sharon. Jack Kevorkian is supposedly terminal. Among the younger set, Pete Dougherty seems to be cheating death.

    Any other suggestions?

    And yes, I'm going to hell.

    Henry Hill, of GoodFellas fame. Apparently lives among the homeless in a drunken/drug stupor in LA.

    You are fucking with some awful karma.
     
  7. I haven't done one of these in years, but to my best knowledge, I believe Anne Morrow Lindbergh is still alive.

    Tammy Faye Bakker or whatever her name is now. In hospice with terminal colon cancer, I believe.

    Is anyone else seeing the "Living With Ed" interstitial that's popping up in this thread? Hilarious.

    EDIT: My picks (in addition to the aforementioned)

    Abe Vigoda
    Billy Graham
    Kirk Douglas
    Michael Jackson

    Go through this site: http://www.whosaliveandwhosdead.com/
    and pick 7 from the Over-80 crowd and then pick 2 from the 70-80 group, and one in his/her 60s.

    This is going to be a sick and cruel suggestion that might punch me a one-way ticket to hell, but pick a serviceman stationed in Baghdad. It's a war, some of them are going to die.
