The 2020 Amazon Rainforest Memorial Dead Pool

Congratulations to crabzilla, winner of the 2019 Western Democracy Memorial Dead Pool!

Welcome one and all to this year's Dead Pool. All new players welcome. The rules are simple: ten choices, one your Joker (double points). You get 100 points minus your choice's age if they die (e.g. if they are 56, you will get 44 points). Choices made up to January 7th will be active immediately; after that, we return to the usual anti-ambulance-chasing rule of a one-week wait until you get the points.

By default you still have last year's selections, currently in red; these will be changed to black once you confirm/amend your choices.

Runners and riders:

Honourable mentions to JacobRichter and airynothing, who ended the year locked in a battle for the silver medal (which Jacob won by one point).

PaperRustler - 30 Dec 2019 09:29:05 (#5 of 321)

OK - but can I just ask everyone to use the following format ? Makes my life much easier:

Sébastien Ogier, Michael Caine, Michael Douglas, Axl Rose, Keith Richardsn Robert Downey Jr, Charlie Sheen, Kiefer Sutherland, Lindsay Lohan, Fabio Quartararo (Joker)

dreams99 - 30 Dec 2019 09:29:48 (#6 of 321)

Hang on, 2019 isn't over yet.

solomongursky - 30 Dec 2019 09:30:43 (#7 of 321)

Any late runners can be tagged on the end of last year's card.

dreams99 - 30 Dec 2019 09:33:01 (#8 of 321)

I'm all in favour of awarding trophies before the final whistle - we might have the 2001 FA Cup, the 1995 CWC and the 2011 League Cup, among many others (but not the 1989 league title), but I think it's only due process to actually wait until the end of the year before giving the sash to crabbsie.

PaperRustler - 30 Dec 2019 09:34:45 (#9 of 321)

Do you.

Ebadlun - 30 Dec 2019 09:48:14 (#10 of 321)

I'm still dizzy with the achievement of actually getting any points at all.

Same bastards please PR.

PaperRustler - 30 Dec 2019 09:49:15 (#11 of 321)

Will do.

dreams99 - 30 Dec 2019 09:52:25 (#12 of 321)

Do you

You don't?

thePiMan - 30 Dec 2019 09:54:18 (#13 of 321)

I'll stick with mine, thanks

awryinamanger - 30 Dec 2019 09:57:43 (#14 of 321)

Congratulations to crabzilla...

Hang on. I have people with high-powered rifles after a couple of the people on my list. It’s an outrage.

Reindeerlia - 30 Dec 2019 09:59:38 (#15 of 321)

You’d need to lose either Roman Reigns or Ant McPartlin to catch up. (Yes, I did just spend 5 minutes of my life working that out).

awryinamanger - 30 Dec 2019 10:01:53 (#16 of 321)

Poor dear Roman, poor dear Ant. I’m sure either or both will be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice*, given what’s at stake.

*Not that they’ll get a choice, mwa-haha.

raymie - 30 Dec 2019 10:02:19 (#17 of 321)

carry on regardless, please, pr

PaperRustler - 30 Dec 2019 10:06:37 (#18 of 321)

#15 - I worked it out too. Should tragedy strike either Roman or Ant, I will of course amend. Chances are, however, slim.

OK, raymie.

TommyDCMBR8 - 30 Dec 2019 10:09:12 (#19 of 321)

Roll me over and do me again, PR.

PaperRustler - 30 Dec 2019 10:19:36 (#20 of 321)

Will do.
