If a celebrity or otherwise noteworthy person passes on, post it here.

Because of this statement, when you get assassinated it will get called a suicide :(

Also, the person in that article above is a prime example of somebody who will shoot a family member at 2 AM in the dark because they thought they heard a fed.

Just write all over your body with marker the names of people you don't like. That way, regardless of you die, they will be suspected of having a hand in your demise. Trolling from beyond the grave. 8)

So I guess putting a list of who you think will pass away this year is off limits?

I've been going through all of the Doctor Whos recently and it occurred to me that Tom Baker is one of the oldest out of the lot if not THE oldest. Somehow I have a bad feeling he's going next.

good article on his passing: http://wsws.org/en/articles/2013/01/15/swar-j15.html
Makes the connection between his suicide and mounting legal pressures from usgov. You don't need overt conspiracy/assassination to ruin a person's life.

People seemed pretty offended when I did it last year, but feel free. I got two of my ten guesses correct (Whitney Houston and Joe Paterno).

Pauline Phillips, known for her "Dear Abby" advice column, died at the age of 94.

89 was a good age though, seems to be a lot of bad luck followed that show for the stars :(

Indeed. Todd Bridges turned his life around, but Gary Colemen's story was quite sad, and Dano Plato's even worse.

Yeah, what a waste, I read her son took his own life at 25 as well :(

its not too late to start a game. some basic rules? - ends dec 31st gmt 23.59.59, 10 people max selected per person - any list posts edited are disregarded, all persons chosen must be public figures, no personal aquantencies/family/friends etc, scoring is taken from 100 e.g. age at death is 60 scores you 40 points, allowed inclusion of persons with known serious medical conditions?, prize for the winner!? guessing cause of death scores double n/a for persons with known medical conditions/drug addictions unless unrelated

kicking up fuss about death on a forum dedicated to games that are purely about death and destruction :roll:

The irony. The NRA will probably say he wasn't armed well enough.

Obviously, he wasn't. Steve Martin sucks, by the way.

To play the Dead Pool game...I can't list 10, only 1 for now :arrow: Emeli Sandé age 25. Predicted age of demise -> 27 or 28.
The music industry's 27 Club of course.
~BUT there's a lesser known 28 Clown Club, currently populated by Heath Ledger and Brandon Lee.
Miss Sande recently released "Clown".

Sounds strange but if you know anything about Professor Griff from Public Enemy, then you'll understand.

Hugo Chavez passed away mere hours ago, at the age of 58.

May you rule with an iron fist wherever you end up :)

Wow, what. That's a name in manga I'll never forget, used to occupy the translation credits of most of the stuff I grew up reading and every volume of Blade of the Immortal; the quality of which I largely put down to his express understanding of the language.

...And he's died before finishing the final volume (possibly.)

He's even in Gunbuster!

What happened?

Dunno what happened but he was a true legend in the manga and translation circles. I've read loads of his stuff over the years. Didn't he do the Dirty Pair manga too?

I guess our very own blackoak will have to fill those enormous shoes Toren Smith has left behind. Over to you blackoak... :D

That is sad. I liked Raimundos and this one back in the nineties.
