We used to have a competition at my previous workplace, which we called the Ghoul Pool. The rules of the competition are very simple. Everyone who wants to enter puts up a few bucks, and with your entry fee, you name 3 'famous' people who you think will die in that year. If anyone's choices all die in that year, then they take the pool. If no-one's horses come home, all the money is donated to charity - me and some friends currently have our comp where if no-one wins, we go out and get smashed at the end of the year, but that's a bit difficult with everyone spread across the globe, so a donation to charity would be a lot better I think.
The amount of money doesn't have to be all that large -- even if we set it at $5 entry fee -- how to collect money? Paypal? Cheque?
Everyones choices would be made public, and probably posted here, and I can put a running tally on my own webspace. And since it is already one month into the year, only people who die from a date we specify onwards will be eligible nominees.
So how's about it? Anyone up for it?
