Here is my list. I'm obviously playing some long shots. Also adding some names I think the world would be a better place without but won't say which ones.

I'd like to suggest an optional side pool that costs $20 each, entire pool to the winner. I'll be the first to go in. Totally on the honor system. We'll settle up first thing 2019.

I'm in for the $20 pool.

Iím in. Or we could make it fun and each put in $20 in bitcoin now. Winner gets the private key at end of next year.

Donald Trump
.


Why Trump. He's not sick and his
father lived into his 90's. What an
odd choice. Why not pick Hillary.
Her parents are long dead and she
can't speak for 10 min without going
into a coughing fit.

I think his odds go up as an assassination risk, as those of any president. Let the record show I'm not advocating anything. I am a former actuary, as you know, so am just playing the odds. There is not a single woman on my list because they live longer. However, had she won the election, I probably would have put her on the list for the same reason as Trump.

So far the $20 pool include me, JimRockford, and AZD. Any other gamblers here?

Yeah, not really. Since Reagan in 83,
that's gotten harder than we can
possibly imagine. How many attempts
have there been since then.

Didn't they uncover an Iraqi plot to assassinate George H.W. Bush?

Oh, there are always tons of plots, but
how many have made it to the point
of somebody with a gun getting near
the president. None that I know of.
