I woke up this morning, after missing church (I mean, look at my avatar), and I saw Mrs. Reagan had died. I brush it off because, hey, it's morning and it's a miracle I even knew how to type in my password to my laptop, much less care about a death, and post my 6-page rant (Also, airmax, I know you changed DDO code to flip where the blue notification banner popped up so it didn't block the middle finger, making me look stupid and proven that you are also psychic/a supercomputer AI that can predict everything) and then I close it and open my browser again a few minutes ago, and I find out that the guy who invented email died. Two important people, dead. I mean, am I the only one who noticed this?

Because we haven't overcome senescence yet.

Two people, both famous, and both very important to the country, and the world, died in one day and nobody noticed. I get that people die but why two very important people reported dead in the same day

About 151,600 people die each day. I'm sure a bunch of other famous people died that day too, these deaths just come as more shocking because they are highly televised.

Well, Ma'am, if we look at the statistics, there are 7 billion humans on earth, of which >1% are "famous". If we round up , 1% of 7 billion, that's 70,000,000. Too many famous people, right? So let's reduce that down a LOT, like, 7,000 famous people. The odds then become one in 1,000,000 that a famous person will die on that day. So the odds of two famous people dying on the same day becomes one in 2,000,000. It's just mathematically unlikely

Well, it's actually quite normal (and thus to be expected) for people to die--famous or not. In regards to Nancy Reagan, she was 94.
Commentator on a picture with David Cameron and a Cat: 'Amazing what you can achieve with photoshop these days. I'm sure that used to be a pig.'

Commentator on Hillary Clinton: 'If Clinton is now what passes for progressive, maybe this country deserves Trump.'

Commentator on British parliament: 'All that talent in one place, where is Ebola when you need it?'

John Kerry on words: 'These aren't just words, folks.'

there are more people
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%
