The 2022 Fully Boosted Memorial Dead Pool

Many congratulations to butterflyeffect, winner of the 2021 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:

Congrats Butterfly. If only I’d kept Desmond Tutu from last year, it could have been different. And thanks PR, enjoy your lunch.
