For whom does the bell toll?

One thing that I’ve been noticing over the last little while is that there are a lot of important people who are getting very old. Me and my brother have a little bet going on and I want to see what you guys think. Two questions:

  1. Who is going to die first?
    (a) Pope JP II
    (b) Fidel Castro
    © Boris Yeltsin
  2. What will they die from?

Personally I see JP croakin it first, then Boris, but my brother is totally convinced that Fidel is at death’s door. And I think that JP will die from falling asleep during a ceremony and falling off the balcony, Fidel from falling asleep while smoking a cigar and setting himself on fire, and Yeltsin from falling asleep while drunk and choking on his own vomit.

I believe you were aiming for MPSIMS instead of Great Debates. You can see a list of the forum descriptions here:

You might be interested in the Celebrity Death Pool 2004.

How can I have missed those threads for so long???

Moved from Great Debates to MPSIMS. There’s no debate here.

NO ONE knows but everyone will die!

Only two persons have made it out of this world alive, Enoch & Elijah, if you believe the Bible.

The Sun may not come up tomorrow, the world may be destroyed in some other way, you could have a stroke, heart attack, or be murdered.

Be Prepared!
