    Another one for 2016

    Carrie Fisher died, after the heart attack she had on the airplane. R.I.P
    I hope they write this in with respect in the new Star Wars trilogy, and not just some side comment.

    This is bizarre, Carrie Fishers mother Debbie Reynolds had a stroke and passed away too..one day after her daughter died..what a tragedy for that family, guess the sorrow of the death of carrie fisher became too much for Debbie

    I recall singing in the rain which I really liked many years ago, and especially the song and dance sequence of "good morning"

    Carrie was 60 and her mother Debbie Reynolds 84.

    yes, at that age the sorrow often will be too much.

    Yes..and perhaps it took her quite hard, as I understand it..carrie fisher didnīt talk to her mother for several years, not until later years when they got more close together again, then loosing her daughter like that must have been hard on Debbie.

    JFC, and now Debbie Reynolds, CF's mom, has died.

    Go to hell, 2016.

    Debbie Reynolds was at normal life expectancy at least, but no one should have to outlive their child, even for a day.

    As for most of these celebs, who have been dying 10-20 years earlier than life expectancy, my powers of deduction, and speculative conspiracy theorizing say: the rise in popularity of cocaine during the 70's and 80's, and these celebs money and fame allowing them to snort a whole lot more of it than average, probably docked 10-20 years off their lives. The baby boomer generation are the first to use drugs in any significant numbers, so we may start to get more data on effects. Life expectancy is dropping a bit. I noticed a lot of pro athletes have been dying the last few years, in their 50s and 60s. Steroids also began to plague pro sports around the time of their careers, not to mention other drugs like cocaine. Just a theory.

    wingzeta, I think there's at least a grain of truth in your speculations.

    Good thing I couldn't ever afford all that 'fun'. Anything past 55 is a crapshoot though: even the apparently fit can go at any time.

    Yeah, there are a few more possible factors with sports, like enlarged hearts, concussions, etc. The data is still rolling in on those factors too. Exercise for fitness is also a relatively modern phenomena. People used to stay in shape by default with physical labor, or walking to get around. Now we sit at computers all day, and then do very strenuous, repetitive, activity in short bursts.

    True, but this year is exceptional in the number of (quite notable, and regardless of age) people that have died.
    And all over the globe I might add.
