    Celebrity Dead Pool 2018

    2010 - TigerfromMars 2011 - jf9tp2wd40 2012 - Scorge 2013 - Bigsby 2014 - Delboy1969 2015 - Bigsby 2016 - Scottyboy 2017 - Scottyboy 2018 - ???? Year 9 of the Aberdeen Music Celebrity Dead Pool is now open for entries! THE RULES: Pick 20 different celebrities who are alive, but who, in your opinion, will no longer be with us by 31st December 2018. Nominate one of them as your "joker". For each celeb demise that you guess correctly, you'll score points, and if your joker sadly passes away, your grief will be alleviated by the fact that you'll score double points. The team with the most points at the end of the year will be deemed the winner. In the event of a dead heat on points, the winner will be selected according to the following criteria, applied in this order: -The most picks -The youngest average age of picks. OTHER RULES: All of your chosen celebs must be: -Human. -At least 18 years old at time of selection. -Not on any form of "Death Row" or scheduled for execution. -Actual real-life people, not characters out of soap operas and the like. -Notable enough to have their own Wikipedia page (if they were part of a band, mentioned on the band's Wikipedia page). It's your responsibility to check this. I'm not looking up 300 people on Wikipedia. -Date of birth and date of death must be verifiable. -Named individuals, not just "Pope Wotsisface" or "the oldest person in the world". All times and dates will relate to local time at place of death Teams to be submitted to me via PM on here, or you can email or Facebook message me if you so desire. CLOSING DATE - JANUARY 21ST. Any teams submitted after the closing date may be considered but may be subject to a penalty. You will start earning points from the day your team is submitted, so best be quick. SCORING: The value of the basic death depends on the person's age: 18-29 years: 12 points 30-49 years: 10 points 50-59 years: 9 points 60-69 years: 8 points 70-79 years: 7 points 80-89 years: 6 points 90-99 years: 5 points 100-109 years: 4 points 110+ years: 3 points On top of this, bonus points are awarded as follows: Unique pick: +3 if you were the only competitor to pick that person. Unlucky 13: +2 for a celeb who dies on the 13th of any month. Unnatural causes: +3 for murder, suicide or accident (but not State executions). Party pooper: +5 for a celeb who dies on their birthday or Xmas Day. Joker: Take the total of all the above and double it. LAST YEAR'S POINTS SCORERS: NAME AGE UNIQUE UNLUCKY 13 UNNAT PARTY Jimmy Snuka 73 Y n n n John Hurt 77 N n n n Joost Van Der Westhuizen 45 Y n n n Chuck Berry 90 N n n n Emma Morano 117 Y n n n Ian Brady 79 N n n n Roger Moore 89 Y n n n Peter Sallis 96 N n n n Adam West 88 N n n n Smith Hart 68 Y n n n Dina Merrill 93 Y n n n Keith Farnham 69 Y n n n Mao Kobayashi 34 Y n n n Glen Campbell 81 N n n n Bruce Forsyth 89 N n n n Jerry Lewis 91 N n n n Bobby "The Brain" Heenan 72 Y n n n Hugh Hefner 91 N n n n Gord Downie 53 N n n n Tony Booth 85 Y n n n Charles Manson 83 N n n n King Michael of Romania 96 N n n n Gulmurod Khalimov 45 Y n y n Abu Muhammad al-Shimali 37 Y n y n AND FINALLY This year's competition will be run concurrently on this forum and in the newly-formed Facebook group. The Facebook group is hidden so no-one is able to see any thing unless they're in the group. You'll have to request to join it. Please feel free to invite anyone else who might want to play (but no knobs).
  3. Peter, no-one of either gender is pestering you for sex. Do you really think people are banging on your window because they want to fuck you? Like zombies at the mall doors in Dawn Of The Dead, clambering to get in, but instead of brains they crave cock from an unemployed waster on benefits.
  4. YouTube - Pork and Beans I wasn't sure about the new tune to begin with but it's starting to really grow on me. I'm stupidly, giddily excited about the Red Album. Criminally underrated band Weezer, I absolutely fucking love them. I absolutely have to go and see them if they hit British shores this summer.

    The Lucky Rathen Weezer news thread

    Quantity over quality for sure. Somehow they seem to be going through something of a revival at the moment. Pacific Daydream was well received and it was nominated for a Grammy (imo its their worst album, and I'm not just using hyperbole there). White did really well too, and the whole Internet was jizzing over that terrible Africa cover. Somehow Weezer are relevant again. Rivers must have made a deal with the devil, its the only explanation.

    The Lucky Rathen Weezer news thread

    Exactly my thoughts. They haven't put any of their own stamp on it. It sounds like Rivers singing karaoke over the original backing tracks. The last album was fucking shite as well. I'm not hopeful for Black.

    The Lucky Rathen Weezer news thread

    A mix of bizarre and shite. I don't really see the point. The songs are all exactly like the originals as well. It's like a wedding band.

    Sorry should have mentioned this, teams of 30 this year with a captain and vice captain. I'll hold the deadline for you since that's my fault.

    JakeBassist's Main Present Bonanza!

    No offense Jake but are you not a bit old to be getting money for Christmas? Once you're earning your own money I don't know if you should still be getting money.

    Celebrity Dead Pool 2018

    Only one person had June Whitfield, that was @ca_gere, who scores 8 points; 5 points for her age (93) plus 3 for a Unique Pick bonus. Barring any last minute tap-ins from the Grim Reaper tomorrow, this will probably be your final 2018 table.

    Now taking entries for 2019 so DM your teams on to me and start scoring points from Jan 1st. For 2019 you need to pick 30 names, with 1 captain and 1 vice captain. Feel free to invite friends (no arseholes though).

    The Return of the Fifty Book Challenge

    Poor effort from me this year, only got through 23. Should manage one or two more by year end but still not great.

    Celebrity Dead Pool 2018

    OK I suppose I could keep it going for another year. I kind of just assumed nobody would care if I stopped, I'll post points updates here as well then but if you want my white-hot banter that's Facebook exclusive.

    Celebrity Dead Pool 2018

    I'm thinking from next year this is going to be Facebook only. Nobody really posts here any more and there's like 1 person in the game who isn't on Facebook. And updating 2 separate places is a pain in the bum. Also considering tweaking the format a bit, adding a few more bonuses, maybe make the teams bigger. Any suggestions throw them my way.

  22. You know a thread is fucking broken when Teabags is the voice of reason.
  23. I might just ban him for a laugh, although that would probably make me a terrorist because you're either with Peter Dow or you're a terrorist apparently. Still trying to decide which I'd rather be.
