      Mayan's Choice Award

      Could we have a "Mayan's Choice" award this year to commemorate the end of time?

      I think that any celebrity that dies on December 21, 2012 should receive double points.
      Maybe the Mayans weren't predicting the end of the word, but suggesting the world wouldn't be worth living in without [insert celebrity here].

      Any thoughts?

          Some phrases associated with Ariel Sharon (wiki) --

          persistent vegetative state
          second stroke
          cerebral hemorrhage
          heart infection
          pneumonia
          14-hour operation
          ventilator
          necrotic large intestine
          paralysis in lower body
          lengthy coma
          tracheotomy

          This has been going on since his second massive stroke, which was in January 2006. They just won't let him die, so I took him off my list.

            Hurray! Thanks Wezil!
            I'm looking forward to another year.

            I suddenly realise that I forgot to check my list against Ming's list....

              Ariel Sharon is dead for all intents and purposes.
              If there is no sound in space, how come you can hear the lasers?

                Had to start somewhere though, right?

                    Abe has been a Dead Pool pick for the past 30 years.

                    There's a reason no one else picked him.

                      If my #10 pick, Tom Baker regenerates post-mortem, does he still count?

                        Zombie picks would be awesome points.

                          Nobody outsiders complained so far about this pool that it is tasteless
                          That takes a bit of the fun away. Can someone please whine at least a tad bit?

                                We've come a long way. I think seeing what the DP is actually about over the past few years has tempered some attitudes.

                                It's as tasteful as tasteless can be.
