No, thanks for posting here, too. I wouldn't have seen it otherwise, and now Elvis Telecom has 11 points.

Raven Alexis didn't have cancer lol

I'd be impressed if Raven faked her illness and recovery for no other reason than to troll dead pool betters.

Am waiting for the fall to kill off my old people and the holiday season to drive my depressives to suicide. I am still in it to win it.

Updated for al-Megrahi.

No idea who Dokes or Dev are, but OK. You're now in the lead!

My strategy this year of picking mainly at-risk young-guns isn't working out.

I went long, hoping for a massive year of young celebrity death, but unfortunately it's mostly been awesome old people this year.

Bump for my dang points.

Three Word Username, Monday, 22 October 2012 16:32 (2 years ago) Permalink

Easy, easy. Got it. (David S. Ware, I assume? Weirdly both of the dudes you scored points on were 62 y/o.)

Bumping for my Maurice Herzog points.

Elvis Telecom, Saturday, 15 December 2012 21:41 (1 year ago) Permalink

Now updated for Herzog, Ravi Shankar, and Patrick Moore.

As the year draws to a close, I'll go through and see if there's anyone else I've missed. If you happen to know that I've missed one of your picks, feel free to mention it here.

Sax Blatterday (jaymc), Wednesday, 19 December 2012 16:50 (1 year ago) Permalink

Elvis Telecom -- if we'd been scoring by the raw number of correct predix, you'd be tied for 3rd. With the age points factored in, you're 20th.
