Ok, starting this a little late. So all submissions need to be done by January 15th, 2006 to be valid.
Quick rules:
  1. Pick 7 (seven) people for your list
  2. They must still be alive by January 15th, 2006 to count
  3. They must be real
  4. No Members of DebatePolitics.com
  5. They must be 18 years old +
  6. No one on "death row". That's cheating.
  7. They must be a celebrity/political figure. Your Uncle Earl is not admissible.
  8. You get 100 Points for every person who kicks it during 2006.
  9. Bonus points for the difference between 100 and their age. (Joe Schmoe dies at 70 years old. 100-70=30. So 30 extra points.)
  10. Super extra bonus points of 100 if you guess the cause of death.
  11. The winner with the most points gets to carry the death scepter through 2007. A special avatar that we will scramble to make in December '06.

Please note that we are not encouraging people to die. We're just guessing when the spinning Earth's gravitational pull no longer has a hold on these folks. Not to be taken internally. Please consult your physician prior to death.

I don't know. That one kind of popped into my head just as I was writing it. Actually, my No. 1 death that I wanted to list (TOT's mojo) was against the rules because he's a member of DP.

I think that breaks this rule:

4. No Members of DebatePolitics.com

But I like the way you think. Hell, if you're in second place come this december, you can give navy 50 bucks, my address, and tell him that I voted for kerry and he'll probably snipe me...
