    2013 Cyburbia Death Pool

    We're a little late to the party this year, but our dear departed comrade would want us all to carry on with tradition.

    Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends. Time for Cyburbians to submit their nominations for the 2013 Cyburbian Death Pool. The rules remain the same.....submit 10 names of well-known folks that you think will dance with death in Year 2013. You may submit an 11th name as an "alternate", in case one of your picks decides to dance in late Year 2012.

    This thread will, with the help of Big Brother, self-destruct after Midnight on New Year's Eve. When the death list starts anew in Year 2013, somebody will start an update thread.kjelwill keep score, providing periodic updates.

    We Cyburbians really suck at this game. There are a number of web sites that can assist you in remembering some names of folks who may join the death dance in the coming year. Or, you can just take wild-ass guesses. Now start digging! The situation is grave!

    I'm sorry but the thrill is gone. I'm out for 2013.

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor
