Default If I went back 2 months to bet on the next celeb to die...

I would have gone all in on Patrick Swayze by a mile. It seems like people are just waiting for him to croak, yet he's still holding on, but in the meantime the daily celebrity death rate is about 35%

Carradine, McMahon, Fawcett

Jackson, Mays, McNair

People die every day. Famous or not, there is no escaping it. Fame is all make-believe.

If I had a Death Pool right now, here's the top of my list..

1. Patrick Swayze
2. Nelson Mandela
3. The Fridge William Perry
4. Peter O'Toole
5. Amy Winehouse

Wait... Peter O'Toole's still alive? He's the guy who played Don Quixote right? Man, am I not old enough to know him properly.
