I signed up for this ‘dead pool’ at http://deadpool.rotten.com/. And only two days into it, with Egypt’s Qadaffi, I get my first scored points of the 10 people I picked to ‘kick-the-bucket’ in the next 12 months. It’s kinda morbid entertainment, I agree. To spend ones spare time in life or any time for that matter, trying to calculate another human’s death, based upon the information traveling around cyberspace and in tabloid magazines! (Yes, them rag mags are still in your face in checkout -lines at the supermarket)
I use this game as a tool to exercise my deductive reasoning abilities and critical decision making process.
How cool is my screen name I made up for game? > StPeterPickr
I am also pretty good at picking winning stocks and trades in the markets. So if you are reading this, be glad you are not on this list….cuase I am very good pickr! And it means there is a fair chance of you being ‘worm food’ in the next 12 months.
I also wonder how the modern-day ‘harnessed collective consciousness of the Internet’ and so many people around the world focusing on one person(s) ill demise on this planet…plays into it now. I really wonder about how it does in the future of our species.
“It may be that our role on this planet is not a worship a God, but to create it”~ Sir Arthur Charles Clarke
…That’s an interesting and fascinating concept when you think of the harnessed collective consciousness the Internet has brought to our species….yes? And the never-ending exponential advancements in technology and where that will take us with regards to religion. The conquering of the multi human language communication barrier via computer translation and voice recognition software.
The Almighty Voice From Above…might someday be the best of our collective gene pool who emigrated off of this planet either in the future………or in it’s past!
Here below is my picks for the next 12 months:
