Tom Petty, rock icon who led the Heartbreakers, dead at 66.
Is there some angle to profit off of these people who die?
The ‘classic’ way to monitize is to have a death pool among people you know (or people you don’t know).
The traditional scoring is 1 point for every year under 100 someone on your list is when they die. So for example if you had Hefner you’d get 9 points, Petty, you’d get 34. People put a certain amount in the pot, say $100 and top 3 spots take portions. You cap the number of people you can have at 10, 15, 20… whatever you decide.
Traditionally you start these pools on Jan 1 and they run the whole year.
There is also the Vegas Casino death watch…
