Debbie Reynolds is still with us.
I've watched "Singin' in the Rain" many times. I can't imagine watching "Star Wars" more than once.
Good call, Paul. Debbie Reynolds has died.
Not such a "Good Morning."

I think I saw this in a movie.
Someone was killing celebrities so that he could win the dead pool

Should we have a thread predicting who will be next? Or which quants...they have to start dying soon. Or which quants do we want to die next? Just throwing it out there...
The ones which like hunting animals.
The Collector? Seems a bit harsh.

They just reach maturity and expire. Some in the money (if they worked at GS), most out of the money.

I think that there was an episode of CSI Miami where they did it too, probably other places also

Maybe easier to list people who haven't died?

Were you able in your day to run up the wall and bounce back like Donald O'Connor in the movie?

Good man! 
BTW I did not even see SW once. I could not stand the pain. Somehow all that make believe nonsense leaves me cold.

Of all the scifi stuff out there, my kids were crazy about Thunderbirds. It's the acting and not all that visual effects. 
those marionettes are incredible actors

Puppet on a string?

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Take care what you wish for;
It may come back to you.

I thought that quants died with the derivative instruments. Only a few zombies have survived.

Hunting is bad karma and should be avoided, eating meat is also not good for you. 
There is only one animal I have not made up my mind about yet, that is the Pink GMO in Copenhagen

Someone told me it is bulletproof, but vulnerable to crossbows. Rumors in its home town Copenhagen claim it is dead and alive at the same time. Absurd!

But then again variety is good! Welcome to the age of GMO and CRISPR do it yourself home kits.
