2021 should be even more LIT!!
With political intrigue getting the proles riled up, we might see some strategic political death. AOC? Pelosi? Biden? Pundits? Might be a good year to amend the lists!! ;D

Predictions didn't go well last year (did anyone get one?), so this year, submit 10 from DeathList and 10 not from DeathList! \:D/

Not tomorrow! :D
But Biden will probably die this year from old age, and no one likes Harris, so she could have a tough time after Biden departs, and if *she* has a tough time, then Pelosi would too. It's a little dominoes game :D
Though, keep in mind that I haven't gotten a pick correct in two years, so to get three would be insane ;D

I saw the Plummer news and immediately headed here :D
Got one!!! This could be the year!! ;D

The rapper thing is interesting.. because it raises questions like, “How did this person I’ve never heard of afford that diamond?” .. but I just know that looking into it will be painful ;p

This is probably the best year ever — even better than 2020, which was pretty awesome. We even got the DMX surprise. (What?) I said D-M-X! (Huh?) D-M-X!

If the Queen dies too...I think it’s like in Snow White or Legend when nature starts to heal. We’ll finally see the unicorns again!

LiveLeak (2006-2021)

Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy? :( :( :(

Their Wiki page already went past tense...
This anti-LL article gives a sad notice about LiveLeak's re-direct to ItemFix.com:
"Rather than evaluating graphic media on a "case by case basis," Itemfix explicitly prohibits "excessive violence or gory content."" ( http://mashable.com/article/liveleak-dead-shut-down/ )
..re-branding into a generic video site with a generic phishing-sounding name.. so basically, who cares? ;p

I get that the author of that article thinks it's just morbid gore-seeking like "Faces of Death", but LL really was invaluable when it came to getting quick links to videos that networks were censoring or editing. Unedited video has become more and more important.. Sites like LL may be common (and much more violent sites definitely exist), but those sites tend to pop up and get taken down or don't have any sort of organization. Twitter works for short videos, but the moderation gets to them more quickly. Oh well.

RIP ;p

lulz. Too true. I'm pretty sure that 99% of my knowledge of Brazil's criminality came from LiveLeak ;D

"itemfix looks awful :p, too much white, and seems sluggish"
DarkMode add-ons can at least help with the white (how it looks for me using "Dark Reader" in Firefox: http://i.imgur.com/OT5yTQ9.png ), but they have lots of work to do.

..I just checked, and they did not transfer user accounts (mine didn't work, anyways), so they kind of sabotaged themselves there.
..also weird that they went for a single video stack with such wide spacing between videos. It looks like a mobile website.
Their "About" page currently says, "Please note that we are currently still in BETA and will constantly be adding new features and improvements to the site", so maybe they'll gradually become LiveLeak again ;D

I sometimes randomly think of his scene with Steve Martin in "Lonely Guy" (1984), particularly for their talk about how there could be "bald bums" if the homeless ever bathed ;D
