All my extended family on my mothers side have a death list competition. We put money in the pot, and you select names of celebrities you think will die. Once all 6 names are dead, we have a winner.....

And Kissinger was my last...

It can be quite controversial, and I understand why. Not everyone will find it in good taste. Some people in my family find it horrendous that most of us do it, and we had to create secret facebook groups to discuss it

Fair enough. It does feel a bit transgressive, if ultimately harmless.

He'd probably have taken that at thirty. Not exactly a role model, but still made a positive impact on the lives of many. RIP.

Alistair Darling at 70. A politician who was central to our lives (in UK) after the bank crash. RIP.

The weird thing is my uncle had Shane macgowan as his 6th.... Kissinger really did me a solid with his timing.

He also had the first 4 out of everyone, so he must be sick.

Might be a fun competition to run here, but I'm not doing it. Already had a lecture from my wife about celebrating my winnings being bad taste....
