  • Death Poll 2004

    Have you ever heard of a death poll? Maybe yes, maybe no, but it's sort of an interesting, if a bit sadistic, competition. Basically, before the year begins, you make a list of 10 people who you think are going to die over the course of the year. Messed up? Sure, but it's fun in a twisted sort of way.

    You can see the death pool I am currently in here. So far, I have not picked anyone correctly. You pick the people in the order you feel they are most likely to die. Then, if your number 1 pick kicks the bucket, you get 10 points. If your number 2 dies, you get 9 points, and so on and so forth.

    Here's my list:

    1. Jack Palance
    2. Rodney Dangerfield
    3. The Pope
    4. John Goodman
    5. Mike Ditka
    6. George Wendt
    7. Don Williams
    8. Elizabeth Taylor
    9. Nelson Mandela
    10. Al Davis

    No, uhm, "luck" for me so far. The girl that won last year, has had the top three people on her list die already. That's creepy. The guy in the lead with 29 points has gotten 4 right.

    Now this whole death poll thing might be a little too much for some of you to handle, but please note that the only person on that list that I actually want to die is #10. I think most everyone here can agree with that!

      So what do you win? Only bragging rights?
      For $1million bucks, it would be MUCH more interesting.......*evil laugh*

        Well, I guess if every single person on your list dies, you probably get some pull with people. "You don't want to buy me this car? That's fine. Just let me add you to my little list here..."

        I wonder if Vegas has odds on people dying?

            I thought this was fairly disturbing too....especially the Pope!

                  Wasn't this a Clint Eastwood movie?

                  Something this sadistic could easily wind up being illegal. :p

                      This was a Clint Eastwood movie, (The Dead Pool.)

                      It more or less showed how an sadistic idea like this can easily get out of control with people actually murdering the people on the list to advance thier placement in the game.

                      It's wrong in my opinion.

                          This game lacks a moral conviction.

                          Is essence, you are profiting from a persons death.
