Celebrity Death Pool 2019

Thank you, but given the history of “gotta be a winner” lists, I fear you have just assured the immortality of my thirteen :slight_smile:

BTW I meant this Gordon Moore. If that’s necessary.


Here is my list.

Pat Robertson
Kim Kardashian
Hassan Nasrallah

James Taylor
Bob Seger
Little Richard

Hopefully all 13 people on my main list die in 2019 (or 2018), while the alternates are just random musicians I picked off the top of my head.

Oh well, I’ve just checked on one of my sure-fire picks for 2019 and found he has died. :frowning:

The rest are, of course, now sure-fire survivors.

And another, Jael Strauss, bit the dust just the other day.

Jimmy Carter
Queen Elizabeth
Paul McCartney
Kirk Douglas
David Hasselhoff
Olivia De Havilland
Betty White

Duly noted a couple days ago in the 2018 thread.

She’d been on my list of prospects too - found out (like you probably did) when I was Googling my prospects to verify that they were (a) still living, and (b) still in questionable health.

I’ll be rooting for you. :smiley:
