Vastly different to your sinking the boot in to someone newly departed, but if you cant see the difference I'm not surprised. Try the urban dictionary for Richard Cranium .... they definitely have your photo plastered there Wink

You are in competition hoping that 10 people will drop off the perch!!! Dead

Anyway, all the best for 2020, I hope that you are a dismal failure here, but back plenty of winners elsewhere Heart

... and FYI, I got a duck egg in 2018 AND 2019, so the kiss of life title is all locked up!Tongue

Perhaps that is where you are going wrong Darl ...... try choosing people that you think might die during the year rather than people that you are hoping will die soon.

The unintelligent think this thread is about hoping people die and celebrating death. Those with a functioning brain know that it’s quite the opposite - it’s celebrating/remembering people’s lives while having some harmless fun.

If you are playing the game and genuinely hoping these people cark it then that says more about you.

If you go through and read the previous year’s threads you will find the vast majority of the posts are from people celebrating the lives and achievements of those who have died. It is almost all positive. Infact I can only remember one post from anyone actually cheering someone’s death.

There are a few posts from people tongue in cheek mentioning their score but the reality is this comp is a sideshow to the main purpose of the thread.

The thread also serves as a tribute thread in one place for all well known people who die during the year.

Well I'm unintelligent fwiw , but I don't hope anyone on these lists die, if they do , that's life!

Try reading the previous threads, it is ALL tributes. There is no death celebration going on (except for one post).

Yes once they die, but the main reason for this thread is a bit of light - hearted "fun" predicting who will drop off the perch. I guess everyone is different, I don't see it a fun.
Anyway I have been guilty of posting deaths in here, I will now leave you to it Thumbs Up

Of course after they die. Hard to do an obituary beforehand.

If you feel guilty about posting tributes that’s cool. There will be plenty of others who will continue to remember the lives of notable people.

The only reason I won’t be doing it is that I still don’t know who won the past few years. Seems as bit pointless as a competition - I mean who is going to bother counting everybody else’s results.

You mean you’re too lazy to count your own? That’s the requirement remember.

Saintly is clubhouse leader for 2019. Will give another week for anyone else to report their scores before awarding the prize. Winner may have been mentioned in the 2018 thread as well so navigate over there if you’re actually interested.

I think most people wouldn't know who was gone from their lists oneone. It isn't about hoping people die and keeping score, rather just a reason for engaging in the thread.

That’s true. There are certain people like Milat who’s death was of course a happy event for many. He is the exception though. Basically there has only been one or two posts cheering the death of non-milat types.

Yes, nobody will bother checking when a $20 bonus bet is up for grabs. I’m sure several have checked already but since Saintly’s score will be hard to beat I doubt many/any will post.

The irony of someone who couldn’t get enough of the thread the last two years suddenly deciding it’s all too dark and in poor taste only moments after being called out for making possibly the only poor taste comment of the entire 2019 thread is truly delicious.

What were you saying about hypocrites?
