MISC INFO

The person who predicts the most deaths in 1999, will win the pot of $34.  In the event of a tie, the money will be split among the top entrants.

If there are any corrections to be done to your picks, please let me know ASAP.

Here are some stats from the pool:

The 6 most selected names were: Pope 26, Bob Hope 25, Queen Mother 19, Ronald Reagan 18, Joe DiMaggio 17 and Boris Yelstin 15 (of the top 5 choices last year, only Frank Sinatra died).

In total 151 different names were picked.

Three people had to repick choices, due to the fact they picked someone who was already dead (Jim Backus, Jessica Tandy and Telly Savalas - Savalas was picked last year as well - FYI - he died in 1994).

Two non-humans were picked as well: The CFL and the Leaning Tower of Pisa

Here is the breakdown of careers: Actors 68, Politicians 22, Musicians 21, Sports 17, Misc. 17, Writers 4, Religious 3.
