Pool of Death

There was an article on cbc.ca earlier this week about how living an anti-social life is as detrimental to your health as smoking… turns out I’ve been hacking about 15 darts a day since moving to Halifax seven months ago.  In an attempt to curb my smoking habit the LC has been chaperoning me on a series of man dates as of late.   Thursday included a rousing 8-person game of Cranium complete with beer drinking, high fives and laughs.  According to cbc.ca, meeting, high fiving and laughing with 6 new people in one night is equivalent to running 20 km, eating an entire chicken breast and drinking a glass of juice made with the juice machine sponsored by the guy with the crazy eyebrows.  It turns out that social interaction is like wearing the patch for yard sticks like myself.

The conversation topics of the night danced around from subject to subject but the topic that really caught my interest was when one guy revealed that he was in a celebrity death pool.  Apparently this works just like a hockey pool but you draft celebrities that you think are likely to die in the near future.  This guy had accumulated 14 points for successfully picking Dennis Hopper to die. I’m not sure where the 14 points came from but that’s what he said he was awarded.  It sounds like these pools are pools of patience because this guy had been in his for well over a year.

My top 5 celebrity death picks:

  • Gary Busey                 18 Points
  • Mick Jagger                14 Points
  • OJ Simpson                27 Points
  • Courtney Love            10 Points
  • Lindsay Lohan            43 Points
