Captain Simian

The 2005 etc Dead Pool

Recommended Posts

The rules-

You have until Midnight 01-31-05 to make your 10 picks. Once that is done I will print out this thread and either lock or delete this thread. I will then start another thread were I will post everyone's picks. This way there is no editing (lbf).

Sometime in July there will be a 3 day window for you to change out any picks. Any picks that you made that passed away must stay on your list.

The money thing didn't quite work out mainly because it was pointed out that it was kinda fooked up to profit from someone's death. I will try to come up with some kind of prize. Of course you will also have bragging rights on the etc for an entire year.

Point System:

18-30: 4 points
31-50: 3 points
51-65: 2 points
66+ : 1 point

In the event of a tie...I haven't quite figured that out yet. We'll drive off that bridge when we get to it.

Start your picks!

Actually, if I can find it I have a very cool prize for the winner. Maybe that should be the ante to join the pool; boots, DVD's, posters.

Don't delete or lock the thread. Half the fun are the ongoing comments during the year.

You can also let new people join in after 12/31 if they want, they just don't get any points to start off.

So, do we PM our picks to you, not post them here?


No, post them, it's fun to see other peoples picks.

I think you should close it January 15. We don't need a whole month.

If Cappy posts the lists, then he can leave the thread open - only he could change anything, and we could still post comments on it?
but that'll be a damn long post for him!
