Nobody's mentioned Prince? Another peculiar celebrity death, which has had the conspiracy club going haywire.

People are talking about numbers of celebrities dying but personally I don't think it's that much of a surprise.

Before TV there were far less famous people as it was harder to become a household name and a recognised face. Now those early TV celebrities are getting to an age where they are going to start dying off so I think it's only to be expected that more famous people will die each year.

BBC did an article on this a few weeks back. Like Sun Fin says, a lot more type of celebrities then there was before (singers, writers, TV, movies, sports stars) and people hitting an age where significant numbers are going to be dying.

Aye, but have you both seen the videos on YouTube? The ones saying that all of these high-profile deaths are a part of some Illuminati sacrifice ritual? :lol:

Grand Master Sun Fin and I won't be allowed to let you in Mitts if you reveal our glorious Illumanti secrets

The Illumaniti would never do such ritual sacrifices. If they existed which of course they don't. Silly Mittens. Now excuse me I just need to wash my robes

Nailed it, they will never suspect us now.

Billy Graham passed away today. This quote of his stood out to me:

‘Someday you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don’t you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God.’

Well that time has come and he has gone home to be with his Lord!
