    Taken from an idea brought on by a few posts in the Zoltan thread, it's pretty simple.

    FOCUS: List up to a maximum of 5 celebrities that you think will die in 2011.

    ALT-FOCUS: List any/all TiB board members you think will swim with the fishes in the coming year.



    Go on to list the manner in which the death will occur.

    The rules:

    Each correct answer will be scored 5 points.
    If you call the manner of demise, 100 points will be awarded. Unless it's painfully obvious, like natural causes or OD.
    There will be awards for various achievements, such as first death, most unlikely, weirdest, etc
    There will be a "TiB's Choice Award" for most (post) humorous, and others as we think of them.
    Only the predictions made before 2011, Pacific time, will be eligible.


    Go.



    Nettdata Edit: It should have gone without saying that if you are found to have influenced any death you've predicted, or colluded with others on their predictions, you and the colluding parties will be disquaified.

    How will we know if a TiB member is dead? I mean, they could just be: in prison / in rehab / locked in DCC's basement, etc.

    We won't know, really... but we can illegally declare someone dead after they go MIA long enough.

    Manner of said death is either going to be funny, or "yeah, I could see that...". Or both.

    For instance, DixieBandit dieing in a hail of bullets after running over multiple spike strips, in an old Firehawk Trans Am with rust and primer, t-roofs off, and Skynnard blowing out the stereo. His final words being "This is for you, Little Bandit!" Tell me you can't see that?

    Or ToyToy flipping an excavator into a pond while trying to recover a pickup that found it's way there the night before due to too much moonshine and in some way a shotgun and small varmints. And yet I can just imagine it was him trying to save those little varmints that was the cause.

    FryLock falling forward onto his keyboard after a well-earned deep vein thrombosis, and an open-casket days later with "QWERTY" still imprinted on his forehead.


    The list goes on.

    Actually, scratch that. FryLock would have "AOEUID", not QWERTY... he seems like one of those Dvorak fucks.

    Shows what you know. My basement doesn't have a lockable door.

    Is anyone else slightly unsettled at the thought of betting on the random death of e-friends (or whatever we call each other)?

    If you can't poke eFriends and Karma with a stick, who can you poke?

    Now shut up and kill somebody already.

    And it's not like you need locking doors anyway.

    Heidi Montag: Unsanctioned plastic surgery mishap (the surgery is unsanctioned, not the mishap)
    Ian McKlellan: Natural causes, and because the good actors always go while somehow Lindsay Lohan will live forever
    Chris Berman: Heart failure during the NFL draft, adding more proof that NutriSystem will kill you
    Charlie Sheen: Drug & hooker overdose. Somehow, Two and a Half Men reanimates him and films its 11th season.

    I jest, I'm sure Shegirl is quite lovely.

    In that case, ToyToy and DB died in 2010. And FryLock doesn't count either. He's dead to me.

    DQ. This is only four, and really Heidi Montag only counts as 1/2.

    Upon review, it's allowable.

    Rules have been amended to read "up to a maximum of 5".

    I'll just come up with a new mix:

    Hugh Heffner – Viagra OD mixed with heart attack
    Nancy Reagan – Stroke
    Zsa Zsa Gabor – come on now, she is already circling the drain.
    Demi Lavato – “accidental drug overdose” because that bitch Miley Cyrus is stealing her thunder
    Steven Adler - OD

    Well in that case I am tempted to swap Demi for Lindsey, but I guess I will keep as is in the spirit of having one wildcard.
