New celebrity death pool

Thom and anyone else who wants to partake:
It is time to start the new celebrity death pool. I propose the following rules:
1) You choose 10 people
2) If you participated last year, you are able to take a maximum of 5 of your 15 chosen.
3) At mid-year, 5 extra people can be chosen
4) If someone chooses any of the same people as you, the person who submitted the names first gets precedence
5) Each entrant must forfeit $10 to the winner
6) In the event of a tie, monies are split

Any other rules?

At least give me some time to make my list. You just approved the rules and off you went. Not fair.

I'll take your lack of response as an admission of guilt and submit my own list, pretending your picks weren't submitted so that all is fair. However they end up at the end of the year is how they end up.

Zsa Zsa Gabor
Ariel Sharon
Nelson Mandela
Steve Jobs
Kirk Douglas
Wilford Brimley
Fidel Castro
Dick Clark
Kim Jong-Il
John Madden

You took some of mine from last year and this year! I suppose I deserve it.
