Matthew (funkygman007) | 967 comments Not gonna lie - I had to double check at least 4 people I recommended. I thought Carl Reiner had passed away 3 or 4 years ago.

Added. I was thinking Asner died a couple of years ago. But, no.

We've never had a young soul payout. Its just a matter of time. Maybe Davidson won't let us down.

Everytime someone from the Mary Tyler Moore clan passes, he is mentioned. I think he may be the last.

Cleary is already at #7....and you are right about Depp. He is looking, acting and sounding a bit sick. Both good adds.

jb Byrkit (jbbyrkit) | 2035 comments Well darn I missed her on the list. Maybe I’ll stick with Jimmy Fallon.

Alondra Miller | 1869 comments I saw the alumni up top and hadn't realized my first nominee George Bush passed, damn.

I need to get out more often....

Alondra Miller | 1869 comments Liza Minnelli
Nichelle Nichols (Star Trek)


message 21: by Lena (new)

Lena | 2380 comments Mario Batali - he’s a big man who has just gone down #metoo. He’s lost much and that can’t be good for your heart.

I like the number of younger candidates on the list this year. We've never had one hit. But, the odds on the ones we've added seem reasonable.

He's not looking good. You got to wonder too if he won't get targeted in prison for any number of reasons.

Ken B | 6492 comments Clint wrote: "William Shatner is getting up there in age. Cher is getting there too."

Both added. I kind of expect a UFO to show up and take Cher back home. She is becoming increasingly odd.


message 33: by Clint (new)

Clint Walker Jr (donkataar) | 71 comments Nice one Ken! Come to think of it I don't know how much of old Cher is left! Maybe she does need to be beamed up!

message 36: by Myst (new)

Myst | 398 comments Any wwe wrestlers looking off? There's usually 1 of them a year passing away. Especially at young ages.

For the sports category how about Ted Lindsey?

Frank Boreman for a NASA pick?

Any CEOs of companies looking suspect after all the metoo stuff?

Theres been a lot of storm chasing tragedies in the past few years...do we want to look into that demographic?

Whoa, he is young, is he sick?? How did I miss this??

Karen (hmssparky) | 167 comments By all rights, Keith Richard should've died a long time ago. I remember watching the Stones playing during the Super Bowl and imagining his head falling off and rolling around on the stage.....

Karen (hmssparky) | 167 comments Oh, I really hate to say this (really), but Stephen King hasn't been looking too well lately.

Hence the old joke that he ODed back in 1969, and he was just too high to notice.

Or is it a joke?
