I'm not a particular fan of Zappa, but what I do know is that he was 100% anti-drugs. His strangest and 'furthest-out' 1960's stuff was intended to send up the whole drug-culture.

Just imagine it, a Euro summit with all the European heads of State, the President of the USA and anybody else who wanted to attend.

I bow to your greater knowledge Sir.

The first to ask "Is he dead yet?" about Castro...............ignore piss poor imitators. :D

President Vaclav Havel has been taken to hospital suffering from a "fresh bout of his chronic respiratory illness".

Things fall apart. It's scientific

A rare event has occurred. I have him as a unique pick on DDP. I've ony ever achieved that once before and that was with a non-famous person that I had inside knowledge of. To manage it with someone as famous as Havel is truly remarkable and I am humbled by my own perspicacity.

I saw him 4 times when I was in Eastern Europe in the early 90s, first time on 29/12/89 when he made his Presidential inauguration speech . His personal life was interesting too. A lover of his aborted what would have been his only child in the 70s I think, he was married for a long time to Olga who then died of cancer, and he then got married to Dagmar who was the Czech actress who had appeared in films topless/nude several times. She had nabbed him while Olga was dying, so the gossip goes, and she was considered as a bit of a Chav by Czech society (a bit like if Prince Charles got married to Jordan).

While he came from a very rich family (which owned the Czech equivalent of the London Palladium) most property was confiscated and the family only got it back in the 90s.

Incidentally his death means that only 2 people from the 1999 list are still alive (carly Simon and Nick Leeson). Does anyone happen to know if there are any lists where everyones dead yet?

Well done, but it's not quite a coincidence:

Let's have a look at mr Havel's DDP history:

Year  Picks  Teams  Percentage
1996   ?      19
1997   ?      20
1998   0      31      0.00
1999   ?      27
2000   4      33     12.12
2001   5      32     15.63
2002   9      40     22.50
2003   5      24     20.83
2004   4      43      9.30
2005   5     124      4.03
2006   5     229      2.18
2007   2     421      0.48
2008   2     463      0.43
2009   3     480      0.63
2010   2     480      0.42
2011   1     477      0.21

From this table we can glean that after a record share of 22.5 percent of all teams, mr Havel has gently slipped under the DDP radar. Considering that your team picked him for the last few years, I would expect the same would have happened should he have lived to 2012.

I'm sure similar trends can be spotted for other DDP picks, but I can't be arsed to check.

regards,
Hein

You'll have to wait until (possibly) after Xmas to have your moment of glory marked in the next DDP update...

Interesting analysis but actually I would have picked him next year, mainly for personal reasons. But I'm surprised someone as famous as him could slip under the radar with his perilous health.

Nope... you can check http://www.deathlist...opic=1084&st=90 (and hopefully someone will have enough determination to update that list once again)
