Round 20: bring out yer dead!

Mrs Hill takes the dick with Anwar al-Awlaki. It’s been a week and no retraction, so I think it’s for reals this time. You know what to do, ma’am. Sorry to all those peeps missing out on Steve Jobs; the Dead Pool moves in mysterious ways.

Right! Onward!

0. Rule Zero (AKAn Steve’s Rule): your pick has to be living when picked. Also, nobody on Death Row.

1. Pick a celebrity. Any celebrity — though I reserve the right to nix picks I never heard of (I don’t generally follow the Dead Pool threads carefully, so if you’re unsure of your pick, call it to my attention).

2. We start from scratch every time. No matter who you had last time, or who you may have called between rounds, you have to turn up on this very thread and stake your claim.

3. Poaching and other dirty tricks positively encouraged.

4. Your first choice sticks. Don’t just blurt something out, m’kay?

5. It’s up to you to search the thread and make sure your choice is unique. I’m waayyyy too lazy to catch the dupes. Popular picks go fast.

6. The pool stays open until somebody on the list dies. Feel free to jump in any time. Noobs, strangers, drive-bys and one-comment-wonders — all are welcome.

7. If you want your fabulous prize, you have to entrust me with a mailing address. If you don’t want the fabulous prize, you’re too smart to be a regular. It takes me forever to put them in the mail, packages go by slow boat, typically take minimum eight to ten weeks and lose the will to live along the way.

8. The new DeadPool will begin 6pm WBT (Weasel’s Blog Time) the Friday after the last round is concluded.

The fabulous prize? Sweet, sweet Spotted Dick! There’s no dick like Aunty’s dick!

By the way, Abe Vigoda served in the Revolutionary Army at Valley Forge as a sergeant. He helped tie east and west with the transcontinental railroad and he crossed the Alps with Hannibal and the Carthaginians. Cut Abe some slack, he was 200 years old when they filmed Fish. He had to be brought out of suspended animation for his Snickers commercial. Hell, he was around when death in the arena was worth more than a Snickers bar…props to Abe for lasting a couple millenia …word up Dog. You lived longer than most societies.

Oh I’ve had plenty of them removed – they are fun! In fact, a little skin surgery under local is great to watch, depending on ones view. Although strangely I found myself correcting the dermatologist on how to incise through the skin … he didn’t even know about polarisation of the collagen matrix in the keratinocytic layer and basement membranes!
Draw yourselves a circle on ones skin, and see which direction gives the best ellipse … cut in that direction, as it reduces scar tissue immensely. Avoid cutting across it.
If you give the closing wound a quick squirt with fibrin based solution, it helps the planar cell polarisation in wound healing …

[Oceania — dude! — you’re losing me readers, up with which I will not put. You know where the line is; kindly stay on the right side of it or I will surgically remove the cancerous bits.]

Actually Sweasel … You know that Lampshade joke?
The real joke is that there wasn’t one – it’s an Urban Myth.

And we no longer use knives (except for diamond knives – the tips are 4 atoms wide) – we use modified viruses (without giving too much away – Adenoviruses are the basic model) …
For types of internal tumours, we biospy, genetically sequence first, we use British Biocell <1 nm colloidal gold.
These clear renally after 85 hours, however they are taken up by macrophages in the spleen, and prodominantly the liver and retained. Also in the extracellular matrix, particulary negatively charged proteoglycans. I digress.
A quick x-ray determines the amount still in the system, and they all stick like shit to a blanket to the tumours.

Then you have two options, a fluoro/xray/ct or RF stimulation … the little nano particles burn out the tumours, as they chronically absorbed them en mass.

Left over gold is cleared renally, and curiously it also promoates recover of RA. The Chinese use Ultrasound to do the same thing, just that we are fancier.

Weasie, There are a lot of Dead Pool posts floating around the site. This one is #20, but if you click the sidebar Dead Pool, that one’s #18 and people are currently posting on it.

Meanwhile, Andy Rooney has slipped the mortal coil at 92.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
