Think of fifteen people who you think may be likely to meet their maker during calendar year 07. PUBLIC FIGURES ONLY. Celebrities, politicians, and the like. You must choose three each from the following age groups:
0-30 (worth 5 points each)
30-40 (worth 4 points each)
40-50 (worth 3 points each)
50-60 (worth 2 points each)
60 + (worth 1 point each)
If a person dies who is in any board member's death pool, you are allowed to submit a new list or make changes to your list at that time and at that time only. The person who has the highest point total at the end of the year wins. The prize is yet to be determined at this time but rest assured it will be something good. Am open to suggestions here. Perhaps a personalized eulogy from Mr. Meloy himself. That would be a good start.
And yes, I know it's coarse and morbid and slightly inconsiderate to the deceased but whatever. It's also fun as hell. Fuck em if they can't take a goddamned joke I always say. Besides, this is a MESSAGEBOARD people. It's also one of the hippest ones out there, filled with some of the best and brightest thinkers on the internets. So I expect results people. And good lists. GOOD.
Ok go. Take your time. But GO.
