we where talking last night wondering if 2016 really had claimed more people than years before and came to the conclusion it was due to the beggining of mass media in the 70s and 80s.

millions more actors/singers appeared and looking at the ages of most of them they had reached a fair age anyway so it just natural that they would die on mass.


next year will be the same and every other year after that.


plus the media constantly looking to distract us from reality has hightened the news of every death.


just a thought though
