Morbid but fun!

Ask not for whom the blog tolls...I entered the Amish Tech Support Dead Pool last night as it seems like it'll be very fun.

I went with:
Osama bin Laden
Warren Zevon
Jerry Lewis
Montel Williams
Liza Minnelli
Al Roker
Marlon Brando
Michael J. Fox
Dom Deluise

Most of my picks were based on their reported current health or gut guesses.

I've participated in a few death pools before but this one is pretty unique because of its clever rules. For example, it was very hard limiting it to just nine picks and taking age into consideration (you get 100 points minus one point for each year of age of the individual.)

I could easily expand my list to 25 pretty solid picks but you can have a hard time thinking of people not in their 80s and 90s so you get more points upon their death.

Another very cool aspect of the ATS Dead Pool is it is free to enter, yet there are nice prizes! So what are you waiting for? Join the game, it'll be fun!
