    2014 Death Pool Updates

    Dirt nap
    Pushing up daises
    Kicked the bucket
    Six feet under
    Crossed over
    Bought the farm
    Bit the dust
    Took a bow


    Please post 2014 Cyburbia Death Pool updates here. A quarterly update will be tallied and posted by kjel. Good luck fellow crypt keepers!

    Nevermind.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman.

    He was probably one of the best, most versatile actors of the last 10 or 15 years. Such a shame to see him go so early.

    I generally don't feel anything when celebrities die, but I'm genuinely saddened by his death.

    I don't have the list with me at work, but I will double check when I get home. We're off to a more morbid start than last year

    Walter Ehlers dies at 92; awarded Medal of Honor for WW II heroism

    In the D-day invasion, Walter Ehlers single-handedly took on enemy soldiers and gun nests and exposed himself to fire to save his men. Just seven World War II Medal of Honor recipients remain alive.

    Harold Ramis died today at age 69.

    In tribute, I may have to watch Stripes, one of the finest military movies of all time, at some point this week.
