    2014 Cyburbia Death Pool

    It's that time again ladies and gents to carry on Bear Up North's Cyburbia Death Pool for 2014! Post your list here in this thread.

    Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends. Time for Cyburbians to submit their nominations for the 2014 Cyburbian Death Pool. The rules remain the same.....submit 10 names of well-known folks that you think will dance with death in Year 2014. You may submit an 11th name as an "alternate", in case one of your picks decides to dance in late Year 2013.

    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 2014, kjel will start an update thread to 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!

    Never tried, but tradition demands it:

    1. Fidel Castro (can I have your cigar collection when you go)
    2. Valerie Harper (I'll miss her)
    3. Ali (he's the greatest)
    4. Zsa Zsa
    5. The older Pres. Bush
    6. Lindsey Lohan (there has to be a young one on the list)

    That's all I've got.

    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)

    All ask the wife, she's up to date on this kind of stuff through TMZ and other shows I leave the room for.

    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
