I’ve had her on my list for months. I should have known my fellow ghouls would be paying attention.
Take note, Andrew21, that is a full list.
Melvin Wayne Osmond
That will be a full list if they all survive until January 1.
Just pick thirteen that actually did something besides survive to great age. Try Douglas Slocombe, or Katsumi Tesuka.
I’m not picking centenarians this year; I want points.
Many thanks to Baker for continuing to do this!

Admittedly kind of lame hopping on the Feek bandwagon but maybe my doing so will bring her a miraculous recovery.

Alt2. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, b. March 15, 1933. Supreme Court justice.
Alt3. Darren Daulton, b. January 3, 1962. Baseball player.
Plain text version:
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Basically guessing that either One Direction or the University of North Dakota basketball team is gonna hit some airplane trouble this year.
He’s worth fewer points but a higher chance of success. Substituting Dick Van Dyke for Johnny Depp. Of course, this now means he will live another 20 years…
The new list:
George H. W. Bush
Olivia de Havilland
Dick Van Dyke
Might as well jump in.
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi
George H.W. Bush
Dwayne “Lil Wayne” Carter
Thien “Tila Tequila” Nguyen
If there’s anyone out there who figures they aren’t going to get many points anyway, but figures ‘most unique picks’ would be an attainable goal, you’ve certainly shown the way!
No change. Below are the real names of the rappers. Your choice to use.
Juaquin James Malphurs
Quincey Matthew Hanley
Tyrone William Griffin, Jr.
Aaron Dontez Yates
Jeffrey Lamar Williams,
Horst Christian Simco
Ackquille Jean Pollard
Olubowale Victor Akintimehin
Anerae Veshaughn Brown
Christopher Lynn Moore
Moses Michael Levi
Tab Virgil, Jr.
If they are better known by their “professional” names those are the ones I’ll use. But if one of them gains you points, it would help to give a heads up.
Second year submission after getting -0- points for 2015 (so far)
(Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols if there’s any question)
Finally getting around to getting my list put together. Mostly the same as last year’s list, but it took me this long to decide whether to take Jimmy Carter off my list or leave him on. Also, jumping on the Joey Feek bandwagon (is it getting crowded on here?)
Ya know, if I put Joey Feek on my list, I bet all you jumping on the bandwagon would scramble in a hurry to take her off your list.
George H. W. Bush
Mary Tyler Moore
Barbara Bush–Mrs. G. H. W. Bush
You could charge money for this, Swampy.
Death Poolers, for the mere pittance of one thousand USD per person, I will not put Joey Feek on my list.
Let’s see if this works.
