A competition of sorts inspired by an identical topic on another forum I post on as well as what seems like a rush of celebrity deaths this year (probably no more than average in reality). Won't bother with the scoring system they use (the younger the person the more points) so just to see who jags some rather than anything more serious.

List 10 people you predict will die in 2017. If you get one then bring the thread back to the top for bragging rights. Have left it a bit late so will leave selections open until the end of next Friday (6 Jan)

Anyone you like Whale. I was going to put Hollywood in my list. He's got one foot in the grave anyway from all reports.

I wouldn't have picked any of the famous deaths in 2016. Well, Zsa Zsa or Castro maybe but no prizes for picking 90 and 99 year olds. 

Kirk Douglas at $1.50LOL

I don’t wish her ill health. It was just an age thing. She is a hundred years old.

One of the last of the actresses of the golden age of Hollywood. A legend.

Surely Manson should be released from prison to live out how ever long he has to go ?
