In another possible speculative reach, the same caller took Appe co founder Steve Wozniak. This time the justification was along the lines of, "These tech guys don't live too long." You know, Steve Jobs and stuff.
Most of the subjects of death pools are entertainers. What better way to go out than to do it entertaining the people who get points for your death?
Celebrities give up a certain level of privacy when they become celebrities, and death watchers are likely to point to that in their own defense. But where does that line end? Where does somebody stop being a celebrity who signed up for this?

But the argument that will convince me to take a side for now is this one:
Some of the other picks were dark horse selections that came with explanations painting a cool and speculative approach to the game.

Also, one could make that argument, and I will go with it, that you are hurting nobody. Unless Tracy Morgan's kid tunes in to your radio death draft. That would not be cool.
Isn't Nike Shoes Tumblr 2017 it supposed to be heroic to face death laughing?
For a celebrity, there is also the psychological effect of knowing there is a segment of people who root for your demise. Not just someday, but this year. If you are our sympathetic subject Hugh Hefner, you know there are probably thousands of death pool players out there rooting for your end. The thought could be disturbing to some, but it may embolden others who are ailing or aging, like the way being doubted can make you more determined.

One caller picked 44 year old comedian Tracy Morgan to die this year on the basis that "30 Rock" is almost over and that Morgan doesn't seem like the kind of guy who takes good care of himself. The caller could see Morgan "going downhill pretty fast" (or something to that effect).
But I can live with the existence of death pools. (I think the mentally disturbed angle can apply to anything so I disqualify it.) Let's just keep the phenomenon low on the cultural radar. If death pools ever get as popular as fantasy football, it's time to get creeped out.
posted on the KQRS contest website: "All picks must have some element of celebrity, fame or political relevance so that an announcement will be mentioned in some credible news source." That makes for a wide open field.

In addition to Hefner, among the big names drafted in the KQRS pool were George Bush Sr., Billy Graham and Betty White, all of whom you'd expect.
One knock on death pools is the question of what kind of behavior the activity might engender for the mentally unstable. It doesn't sound like that much of a stretch to imagine a death pool enthusiast taking matters into his own hands.
contest, a rotating cast of callers phoned the station to select the celebrities they believed had the best chances of dying this year. I didn't listen for long, but it got me thinking. Prognosticating death for fun: Should I be OK with this?
One great thing about being a non celebrity is that you can usually presume nobody wants you dead. That is something that someone like, say Hugh Hefner, selected in KQRS FM's Dead Pool 2013, cannot say.
