    Somewhat like Hunter S. Thompson who was called a gonzo Journalist,I consider myself to be something of a gonzo Pagan.

    It is interesting that humans seem to believe that they are the crown of creation,until nature drops a house on them....Just saying....

    I have decided that I no longer want to be an adult... If anyone needs me, I'll be in my blanket fort, coloring.

    Re: The who died thread Mary Tyler Moore

    I loved her on tv. I know she had lots of health problems - she'll be missed. She was one of the first to play an unmarried career woman in a leading role.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom?

    Are you intending this to be a reusable celebrity death thread or just applied to Mary Tyler Moore?

    Title is now more appropriate to purpose and thread is sticky for the time being. Its sticky status may be subject to change.

    It will be. While last year's death count was surprising, it's just a matter of numbers. There were far fewer celebrities up until the 60s after which there was a boom in celebrity culture as most households had a tv, and marketing companies realised they could target the emerging teenaged market. There was a musical revolution that meant many of the artists from that time have been held in high regard and considered greats through the ages. More movies were made which saw more actors rise to fame too.

    We're simply at the turning point where those celebs made during that sudden explosion, and in the years that followed, are reaching their 60s and 70s.

    Add to this the effects of attentional bias and confirmation bias. Celebs were dying in 2015, but because they were happening so close together in January 2016, we all noticed and started speculating on who might be next. Then each addition death confirmed our belief that 2016 was a bad year to be famous.

    I don't know the stats for elsewhere, but deaths for the general population actually decreased compared to 2015 here in the UK last year.

    So if this theory is right (I'm just repeating what I heard on BBC breakfast before the New Year), then of course the trend will continue. Some years might be worse than others, but especially now we have reality tv and Pop Idol type shows and a cultural obsession with celebrity, the high death counts will undoubtedly continue. Celebs simply make up a larger slice of the population than they used to, and everyone dies sooner or later. Drug and alcohol abuse probably don't help slow down the process either.

    夕方に急なにわか雨は「夕立」と呼ばれるなら、なぜ朝ににわか雨は「朝立ち」と呼ばれないの? ^^If a sudden rain shower in the evening is referred to as an 'evening stand', then why isn't a shower in the morning called 'morning stand'?
