“Jim Rockford” Garner. I used to love the show. Watched almost every episode. It is now running on the local oldies station and I find it almost unwatchable. Of course it couldn’t be my tastes that have changed … so I am irritated at James Garner for not being timeless. I admit, though, this is the mildest irritation on my list, but I was stuck for a last name, so…
My themed entry, Leftist Moonbats and Loathsome Dictators:
Maybe Garner getting old and having all those strokes pissed him/her off…
Thanks to all who tell me if their list is themed, I wasn’t too sure about a couple and PM’d them about it.
If a list has too many picks, say, 14 instead of 13, I’ll cut off the last one unless told otherwise,
(Version 3, I really thought I had checked this.)

I just want to wish everyone GOOD LUCK!
I hope I crush you all!
Paul, I don’t know what the problem is, but you still have 14 picks.
In all the years I’ve been entering the Death Pool, this is the first time I’ve realized what a horrible, cruel, sick game it is. Nothing bad had better to happen to Charlotte or Christopher, or I’m going to be very, very upset with you, Annie-X-mas
On the other hand, this pick is pure brilliance. I can’t even add him to my own list, because I am notoriously bad at picking, and he really does need to die.

When I read about the “Spider Therapy” there was absolutely no chance of anyone else claiming the #1 slot. :eek:

Joe Jackson (father of the Jacksons)
Anders Behring Breivik
Rep. David Wu
For those of you into soccer and the Death Pool it seems a former star player in South America is quite ill. And he’s not all that old.
I read that fast and thought it said Bashar Half-Assed.
I like my version better.
I’ve missed a few years… time to wade back in.

By the powers vested in me by the cold, cruel universe, I grant the following people eternal life. Or at least a reprieve from death in 2012:

The result of my attempt to use wikipedia to find people. There were just too many candidates to go through properly and I no longer want to find out which names have health problems. I started with 1920s births as a balance between age and points, hence mine are mostly around the same age.It was pretty sad to go through the lists and realize just how many household names will shuffle off in the next few years.
My list, Unthemed, in rough order from “don’t die” to “Good riddance”
- Colin ‘Pinetree’ Meads, NZ Rugby player and the big NZ Living Legend since Sir Edmund Hillary died last year.
- Charlie Watts, Rolling stones drummer and former substance abuser.
- Albert Uderzo, ‘Asterix’ Illustrator/writer
- Sylvester ‘Sly’ Stone. Disco-funk singer legendary for excess lifestyle.
- Jim Lovell, Apollo 13 Astronaut
- James D. Watson, Co-discoverer of DNA
- Daniel Arap Moi, Former Kenyan President
- T-Pain, Known as Faheem Rasheed Najm to his mother. My 27 club pick. Unsure what to call him in the plain list.

- Ariel Sharon, Former Israeli President. Jumping on the bandwagon here.
- Dick Cheney, US shotgun/Quail enthusiast, more machine than man.
- Charles Manson, Very naughty boy.

Barbara Bush, Wife of G.H.W. Bush.
Lily Allen, British Pop singer. Please don’t die. But… you are a 27 club candidate right now.

Could we at least weld a chastity belt on to her, if she is going to live forever? I mean come on. PUT A CORK IN IT!
He’s putting something in there on a regular basis.
