Rules:

* Ten selections. You are permitted to add one new person if your pick is correct.
* If you participated in the 2017 Pool, you are permitted to select one keeper. If your keeper passes, you are not permitted to select another person.
* Scoring is 100 - (age) = points.
* Birthday bonus of 1.5x if the celebrity passes on his/her birthday.
* Selection should some have some form of notoriety that can be verified online.
* All selections must be human.
* There is no deadline to enter. If you post your picks in the thread before the new year (12/19 through 12/31), you are permitted to modify your picks as long as the 2018 Pool has not officially started. You are free to post your entry at any time throughout the year. If you post your picks after the new year, you are not permitted to modify your roster until a correct pick has taken place.
* If your selection hits, feel free to @ me so it shows up in my notifications. If I'm slacking and haven't responded, shoot me a message.

*...and please, no murder. This game is for entertainment purposes only.

Why the time limit on entries? If someone wants to enter the pool in August, why not let them?

No deadline for picks, but I wanted to let everybody know they could edit their picks before 2018.

Joni Mitchell

Yeah, I know...you'd think someone that also finds Bob Dylan to be overrated wouldn't be on my shortlist like this...but, as mentioned in previous years, it's not a wishlist... :slug:

Has Craig Mack fallen ill?
he was sick a few years ago, and then he joined a cult. His wiki page doesn't mention him being ill, but it definitely mentions a cult. I'm not sure what the extent of it is, but it just seems weird, hence his entry.
The single "Mack Tonight" was released for the album in 2006. Mack then disappeared in the hip-hop industry until in 2012 a video was leaked on YouTube, saying he had joined a cult, surprising family members and fans. As of 2012, Mack resides in the Overcomer Ministry located in Walterboro, South Carolina.[3] The Overcomer Ministry's YouTube channel released a video titled "Craig Mack Testimony" on May 22, 2016,[4] although recorded the previous day, in which Craig Mack appears in the middle of the church to rap about conspiracy and Christianity through a remix of "When God Comes".

The song expresses the cult's beliefs, that Craig plans to stay in the cult, and that he respects no one who wants him to come back to mainstream rapping.

I'm not opposed to this.

I'll even allow one swap since it's early in the year and the thread remained empty after 1/1/18.

Sorry for the delays on this. Mikey and Gaucho, you have 19 points for McCain.

I thought I had Whitey Bulger. I did, but that was in 2016.

I knew at least one person had him, so the first thing I did when I woke up was checked the thread.

Updating the scores via mobile kinda sucks (only have my phone on me), so I'll update once I get back in town this afternoon. Also want to give the thread a good review since we're in the final stretch.
