    Dead Pool 2008

    Pick ten famous people who you think will die this year. I suggest that at least two must be aged under 40. Poster with most correct may win a prize if the Teakdoor can afford one.

    My first thought was the Man U squad, again.

    1. Bilawal Bhutto
    2. Sir Bobby Robson
    3. Kirk Douglas
    4. George Bush Snr.
    5. King Mswati III of Swaziland
    6. Elizabeth Taylor
    7. Maggie Thatcher
    8. Pete Doherty
    9. Fidel Castro
    10. Owen Wilson

    NOT at all in good taste to mention the King especially at this time on a topic of this nature, very bad form.

    ^ My thoughts entirely. Let's keep George Bush out of this. I hope he lives to be 100 , god bless 'im. And anyone who says anything bad about him or his lovely family should be banished (after a suitable term in jail).

    To OP, I don't know. I don't like thinking about it. Actually your no.10 had occurred to me as an under 40 possibility, too.

    Dalts, you might want to edit post 4.

    I see the phrase "Dead Pool' and can't help but think of Clint Eastwood.

    Which is ironic really, he's a candidate for the list himself. Not exactly a spring chicken anymore.

    Great thread.


    Darryl Strawberry - (drug overdose)

    Former lead singer of the "Stone Temple Pilots"

    Courtney Love

    Margaret Thatcher (old age)


    As for a special person noted above, it's not bad form. This individual could pass away of old age, and I don't think it's disrespectful. I think this individual has 10+ years left in him, however.

    William Shatner received a Lifetime Achievement award in December and few people survive one of those for long.

    Owen Wilson is a good choice, together with Amy Winehouse probably.

    A farang living in a highrise in Pattaya.
    A soi dog living outside your apartment.
    Ronald McDonald never sells to children. He informs and inspires through magic and fun.

    No, I no longer have the authority to delete posts, which is a pity.
