Someone at work is organising a dead pool. Premise is we each get to nominate 3 celebrities, under 85, with no known fatal illnesses.
It runs for a month and if none of the celebs die, it rolls over to another month, with more money going into the pot. First celeb on the list dies, the nominator of that celeb wins the pot.
So who do you reckon will fall off the branch soon then?
Pete Doherty? Amy Winehouse? - drug-related deaths?
Who would you nominate and why?

How about some political figures/influences given current turmoil? Salman Rushdie? Nouri al-Maliki? Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?

They spend other people's money, not their own.

It's hard to identify what you class as a fatal illness.

Ariel Sharon hasn't got one, but would be an obvious choice.
