Morbid?

I was thinking of having an R.I.P bit.

I am astonished at how many people have died this tea already and it's only the 29th of Jan.

I just thought that while looking at the music bit.

I'm interested in how many alive things there are. Plants, animals and people etc. I would like to know how many things are living at anyone time. If we can work this out then we can make a decision on reincarnation.

I'm going to guess there were a limited amount of alive things at the beginning of time and now there are more living things. This must mean reincarnation is bollocks.

Thats the most erudite thing I've read since The Origin of Species.

Maybe it's a kind of collective spirit or consciousness which is forever expanding, like the cosmos itself, and so is not limited by the number of vessels (people or otherwise) it inhabits. yinyang.gif

That means that we have to have more alive things. Where are they all going to fit?

In space. It'll be great, like Buck Rogers or something

I think the population of the UK has stayed the same for about 50 years. but it certainly feels more crowded. Maybe it's because we're fatter.

i've got a mate called richard henderson who is now a school teacher in Boro - went to college with him through the mid 90s. we have a morbid game where we try to outdo each other by text whenever a celebrity dies. its normally someone we admired like er... David Vine, or Reg Gutteridge - we actually try and beat each other to the text message - i actually dread getting a text from him, it'll be 'Spare a thought for the family of Ricardo Montalban RIP'

weird, dark, and strangely amusing

I'm convinced that royalty live longer than anybody as they are waited on hand and foot all their life.

I base this on a statistical sample of one. The Queen mother

Legendary big band drummer Louie Bellson, who performed with the likes of Oscar Peterson, has died aged 84.

The musician died at Ceders-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles from complications arising from Parkinson's disease, according to the LA Times.

Bellson's career spanned more than six decades, performing on more than 200 albums with jazz greats.

Duke Ellington called him "the world's greatest drummer", and Sammy Davies Jr said he was a "symphony orchestra".
