I will operate the 2013 pool this year again. The rules are below. You will need to send me your picks in a PM by midnight on the 31st. Any picks received after that date/time or not in a PM will not be accepted.
Same rules as this year.
Everyone picks 10 known famous people and at least one must be under the age of 40.
Points are awarded only when a celebrity dies within the gaming period (2013 calendar year)
Standard Points will be awarded based on the persons age subtracted from 100
1 point will be awarded for anyone 100+
If there are questions about an age I will make the final determination.
That's it. Pick 10 famous people (see criteria below) and watch the news.
Definition of a Celebrity
A celebrity is defined as anyone who's first name and last name appears on at least 5 web sites when searched on www.google.com. Each of these 5 web sites must list an obvious association to that person claim to fame as well.
If you select a person that does not meet this criteria, they will be disqualified from the contest and you will not be able to replace them on your list of 10 celebrities (unless it is discovered prior to Jan 1, 2013). If you choose a person that is already dead we will laugh at you and you will be awarded no points.
So far we have:

I'm in....PM on the way; and in doing "research" I cam across this site
cymjim you should enter and see if you can pull off some of the bonus points. I like the Machine Gun Kelly and the Last Call bonus.
BTW - I think I am the anti-cymjim as I've never named one (then again I try to avoid the sentimental picks...just couldn't type out Ernies name on my list)
hope i can get on the board this year
I just submitted
4 states of being in the cannabis society ------------

In. Did about 5 minutes of research. If I am at 0 points by thanksgiving, i'm gonna hire some assassins from the deep web to help me out

This is my first time doing this. Of course, I think I'm going to go 10 for 10. But now that I've submitted my picks, I hope I get a goose egg. Some of the people on my list I like, some I don't, and some I really don't know anything about. I just can't help but think I put a little bit of negative energy out in the cosmos that might be the nudge the Grim Reaper needed to claim one of them.
Just submitted. This is morbidly exciting.

I'm in. My list will be submitted by New Years. My family told me yesterday I would be a bad person for doing this.
I think that would be a dq.

Don't know if I want to be in this if my name isn't even spelled correctly
I need a ruling: can I use a poster as a pick? Their name has been prominently featured on numerous websites including here, the Main Board, and youtube...

so you are taking your internet fight with Big Sean to the next level, eh?
I guess I could use him as well....
I'm in. I hope so many people die this year.
What about a local person who works in the media and is known to lurk our board?

Would that be one that likes to eat, a lot? Nice pick.
I'm in. I'm totally gonna win.
