The first one was a random pick. The second has been planning for his death, so that helps. I think the third one might already be dead... The fourth was random. And the last one, I think he's going to end up hurting himself.

I have a feeling the first one is going to get assassinated. The second one is just old. The third one will probably hurt himself. The fourth seems to be a favorite among these lists. The fifth is just me fishing for names, and I happened upon one that might be better than I thought.

I had the first one on my list last year. The second... I dunno. The third is just me playing the odds. The fourth is just something I felt I should put, I don't know why, but I feel like that's going to be one of my better guesses. The fifth... I don't know why I picked him... I think I was running out of names.

The first two just seemed to go together, so I put them both. The third one, I was amazed when I saw his age; he's going to break his neck or something. The fourth is me playing the odds again. The last one I thought of as I was typing this up. I remembered that he underwent surgery or something a few months ago, so I decided he would be better than anything else I could think of.
