searching for the word "dead" never got me so many accolades.

i look forward to your update.

let's keep death alive.

See, there was my fault in this whole thing.

I just browsed through all of DBB's posts stopping to check any post that didn't start with "Re:"

As I went I noticed a few that were various R.I.P. or so-and-so passed away threads and those were the ones that made the NOTES section - admittedly it was not a complete way of doing it.

No worries though, excellent detective work here will plug up all the gaps.

well, for future detective reference, a search for "RIP" in a title or body comes up with a great deal of nothin'. i suppose it's because they're just letters and too many have "r" "i" or "p"? or perhaps it's the famous reliability of the RS search engine acting up.

in either case, i think we've about exhausted the death threads.

now for fun, see how many i brought up rod roddy in.

Sad about Rod, really, but its cool his memory lives on through you and others in the forums both here and PriceIsRightDefender.com or RebelRoddy.com.

Yep - but the real fun begins when the next celebrity dies and we get to see if DBB was the first to post it.

These changes have been made, but I need more info on the Rerun passing to make an entry.  I need a link of D.B.B. got to it first, a date and the poster if it was someone else.

We could take bets....  bets not only on who dies next, but whether or not DBB gets to it first.

Of course, anyone involved in the betting would be exempt from participating in posting the death news first.

Betty White



I'll say he gets it first too
